...Therefore, say to the Children of Israel: 'I am HASHEM, and I shall take you out from under the burdens of Egypt; I shall rescue you from their service; I shall redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I shall take you to me for a people and I shall be a God to you; and you shall know that I am HASHEM your God, Who takes you out from under the burdens of Egypt. (Shemot 6.6-7)
From the Stone Edition Chumash Commentary...
The four expressions of redemption. Having told Moses that the impending revelation would be greater than that which was revealed to the Patriarchs, and that He was about to redeem the Jewish people, God commanded him to go once again to the Jews and tell them that He - as HASHEM, the Name that denotes power and mercy - was about to redeem them. These two verses contain four different expressions, representing progressive stages of the redemption. These four stages are the basis for the Rabbinic requirement of the Four Cups at the Pesach Seder. The expressions, as explained by R' Bachya, are:
והוצאתי - I shall take you out. God would remove the Jews from the burdens of slavery even before they were permitted to leave the country and while they were still the chattels of Egypt. The slavery ended in Tishrei, but they did not leave Egypt until six months later.
והצלתי - I shall rescue you. God would take the Jews out of Egypt. The subjugation to Egypt will be formally ended.
וגאלתי - I shall redeem you. This alludes to the Splitting of the Sea, when God's outstretched arm with great judgments crushed Egypt's power for good [ch. 14-15]. Until then, the Jews feared that they would be pursued by their former masters and returned to slavery. As the Sages teach, the punishments inflicted on the Egyptians at the Sea were five times as great as those they suffered during the Ten Plagues.
ולקחתי - I shall take you. God took the Jews as His people when He gave them the Torah at Sinai. That was the climax, the purpose, of the Exodus.
May we all merit to live and survive to see and experience the greater redemption from the Roman exile - The New World Order - the present-day Egypt. And may HASHEM redeem us very, very soon. Amen!

26 Tevet 5782
As the Ramchal wrote, the nations cannot bring the redemption, only the Jews can, but they can, individually, affect their own future outcomes. The birur among the nations will determine who the righteous gentiles are and which of them merit to survive into the Era of Mashiach.
Humanity is finally getting up close and personal with Earth’s nearest star.
...Since its 2018 launch, the probe has passed close to the Sun 3 times — and it will do so another 21 times in the next 6 years, sending back exclusive data from the Solar System’s hottest and most dangerous object.
The US-European Solar Orbiter probe launched Sunday night from Florida on a voyage to deepen our understanding of the Sun and how it shapes the space weather that impacts technology back on Earth.
The mission, a collaboration between ESA (the European Space Agency) and NASA, successfully blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral at 11:03pm [9 Feb 2020] and could last up to nine years or more.
Ten state-of-the-art instruments on board will record myriad observations to help scientists unlock clues about what drives solar winds and flares.
The James Webb Space Telescope, NASA's premier space observatory of the next decade, successfully launched on Christmas morning.
...Since 2004*, thousands of scientists, technicians and engineers from 14 countries have spent 40 million hours building the telescope. The telescope includes instruments from the Canadian Space Agency and the European Space Agency.

We are told that at the time of the Final Redemption we would witness greater miracles than those seen in Egypt at the time of the First Redemption. For one thing, the damage will not be limited to one country, but will be planetwide. And how do you compare the blood, frogs, hail or even 3-days of darkness to watching the sun explode and feel the earth turning over as the crust comes loose from the mantle and the plates slide the continents back together again**?
Reminder of the sources in Tanakh which predict this...
Yeshayahu 13.10 - "For the stars of the heavens and its constellations shall not allow their light to illuminate, the sun has become dark in its going forth, and the moon shall not shine its light."
Yechezkel 32.7 - "And with your smoke I will cover the heavens, and I will darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not shine its light."
Yoel 2.10; 3.3,4,5 - "Before it the earth quakes, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon darken, and the stars withdraw their shining. ...And I will perform signs in the heavens and on the earth: Blood, fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall turn to darkness, and the moon to blood, prior to the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever shall call in the name of the Lord shall be delivered, for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be a deliverance, as the Lord said, and among the survivors whom the Lord invites."
Yeshayahu 60.19 - "Your sun shall no longer set, neither shall your moon be gathered in, for the Lord shall be to you for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be completed."
Zechariah 14.4,6, 10 - "...the Mount of Olives shall split in the midst thereof-toward the east and toward the west-a very great valley. And half the mountain shall move to the north, and half of it to the south. ... And it shall come to pass on that day that there shall be no light, only disappearing light and thick darkness. ...The whole earth shall be changed to be like a plain, from the hill of Rimmon in the south of Jerusalem; but it [Jerusalem] will be elevated high and remain in its old place...."
Malachi 3.19,20- "For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts. And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name."
** I have a theory that the same way the continents pulled apart during the generation of the Tower of Bavel (see Pangea), they will come back together at the End of Days and this is how the whole world will be Eretz Yisrael at that time. The Even HaShetiyah is the center of the earth and everything else revolves around it; therefore, it will be the most stable place on the surface of the planet. The further out one goes from it, the more unstable it will become and the more catastrophic will be the damage - think of the Ring of Fire. ("One third will be unharmed, one third will be partially destroyed and one third will be completely destroyed.") [If anyone knows the source for this quote, please put it in the comments. Thank you!]
In Part 1, it was established that there is an insidious trend today to universalize Judaism and the Torah. I daresay, that were this the correct path to take, we would not have been mourning the translation of the Torah into Greek just a couple of weeks ago.
Authentic, Torah-true Judaism is engulfed and drowning in a tidal wave of error and misconception regarding our relationship to the nations of the world.
In part 2, here, I hope that the sources I bring will shed light and clarity on this subject and help to keep us on the straight path, deviating neither to the left nor the right.
It is a mitzvah for every Jew to evangelize the world with Torah.
Israel's mission is to be a "light unto the nations" by spreading the gospel of Torah.
Jew or non-Jew, it doesn't matter, all are equal and have equal standing before God.
All of humanity is one big family and all are the children of God regardless of belief.
The Messiah is not coming just for the Jews, he is coming to save the whole world.
The Jews can't be redeemed unless the gentiles play their part.
Yes, I have tweaked the language because in essence this is really what it is and it helps us pinpoint the origin of these false ideas. Yes, this is more Judeo-Christianity. And it bears noting that the Jews who want to teach Torah to Gentiles stopped pretending it was for those seeking to learn the Noahide laws long ago. Now, there is no more pretense that they are anything other than Christian idolaters.
The Rambam in Hilchot Avodah Zarah, Chapter 7, Halachah 1:
It is a positive commandment to destroy false deities, all their accessories, and everything that is made for their purposes, as [Devarim 12:2] states: "You shall surely destroy all the places [where the gentiles... served their gods]" and, as [implied by Devarim 7:5]: "Rather, what you should do to them is tear down their altars."
In Eretz Yisrael, the mitzvah requires us to hunt after idol worship until it is eradicated from our entire land. In the diaspora, however, we are not required to hunt after it. Rather, whenever we conquer a place, we must destroy all the false deities contained within.
[The source for this distinction is Devarim 12:3, which] states: "And you shall destroy their name from this place," [implying that] you are obligated to hunt false deities in Eretz Yisrael, but you are not obligated to do so in the diaspora.
From the commentary: On we are not required to hunt after it. - since these lands are not holy, we are not obligated to eradicate idol worship from them. (Kinat Eliyahu)
In other words, we do not go out from Eretz Yisrael and travel the world begging the non-Jews to leave their idolatry and accept the Sheva Mitzvot. Neither do we go out from Eretz Yisrael and travel the world inviting the non-Jews to come to Eretz Yisrael, welcoming them to bring their idolatry in with them and practice it in our midst!
Rabbi Meir Kahane from his book Uncomfortable Questions for Comfortable Jews...
..for the sake of the Jewish people, it is time to speak about the ignorance, the perversion, the corruption, the counterfeiting of Judaism. It is more than time to bring down what Judaism really says about Jews and non-Jews, about the status of both in the world, about the concept of Israel as a special chosen people and the place of a non-Jew within the Jewish State, about the contradictions between basic Judaism and basic western democracy and liberalism.
...The liberal west speaks of the absolute equality of all peoples while Judaism speaks of spiritual status of the chosenness of the Jew from and above all other people, of the special and exclusive relationship between G-d and Israel.
Excerpts from the Ramchal in Derech Hashem (Feldheim Publishers) ...
...According to the Highest Judgment, it turned out that none of [humanity] deserved to rise above the degraded level to which Adam and his children had fallen as a result of their sin. [Not a single one had risen above it all.]
There was, however, one exception, and that was Avraham. He had succeeded in elevating himself, and as a result of his deeds was chosen by God. Avraham was therefore permanently made into a superior excellent Tree, conforming to man's highest level. It was further provided that he would be able to produce branches [and father a nation] possessing his characteristics.
The world was then divided into seventy nations, each with its own particular place in the general scheme. All of them, however, remained on the level of man in his fallen state, while only Israel was in the elevated state.
After this, the gate was closed on the era of roots. Things would then be directed and brought about upon individuals as branches, each one according to his nature.
... God's great love and goodness decreed that the branches of other nations still be given a chance. If they so desired, they still had the free choice to tear themselves loose from their own roots, and through their own actions include themselves among the branches of Avraham's family.
This is what God meant when He told Avraham (Breishis 12:3), "All the families of the earth will be blessed through you." Avraham was thus made the father of all converts.
...Avraham's tree consisted of 600,000 main branches. These were the individuals who left Egypt, and it was to them that the Torah was given and the land of Israel divided. Every Jew subsequently born is considered to be an element and descendant of one of these primary branches.
It was to these 600,000 original Jews that the Torah was given. When this occurred, the tree was said to have attained maturity.
At this time, God also gave the nations a last chance. In His mercy He had suspended their final judgment until the time that the Torah was given [with the revelation at Sinai]. He then offered the Torah to every nation, giving them the opportunity to accept it.
If any nation would have then accepted the Torah, it would have elevated itself from its lower state. As it was,none of them desired the Torah, and their judgment was therefore sealed completely. The gate was permanently closed, never again to be opened.
It still remained possible, however, for any individual to convert to Judaism. In this manner, he could still include himself in Avraham's tree of his own free will.
... God thus made the rectification and elevation of all creation totally dependent on the Jews. To the extent that this can be expressed, we can thus say that He subjugated His Providence to them. Through their deeds, they can cause [His Light] to shine forth and have influence, or, on the other hand, hold it back and conceal it.
The deeds of the other nations, on the other hand, do not add to or subtract from the state of creation, nor do they cause God to reveal Himself or withdraw. All they can do is bring about their own gain or loss, and strengthen or weaken their own directing angel. [Read it in full here:Israel and the Nations.]
The final redemption will mirror the first redemption from Egypt. Moshe Rabeinu was the redeemer promised to Israel. All of the slaves went free, but Egypt was destroyed for the sake of freeing the Jews. "The world exists for the Jews; had Israel refused the Torah, the world would have ceased to exist." Ben David will come at the End of Days to redeem the Jews and the entire world will benefit, but all who oppose this goal of freeing the Jews to fulfill their true mission of rectifying the world through Torah and mitzvot will be destroyed in the process.
There is a dangerous heresy gaining traction among our nation. It is being promulgated both by enemies who know what they are doing and by those who don't know any better, but who find the ideas attractive. Much can be said on this matter, but all anyone really has to know to avoid falling into error is to avoid anyone or anything that claims Judaism or the Torah is "universal."
This is a Christian concept masquerading as Jewish, i.e. "Judeo-Christian".
According to the Maharal...
...the fourth empire [Rome] was a universal synthesis, alone equivalent to the others. ...Because of its universality, this empire is motivated to be everything, not allowing anyone else to co-exist." (The Mitzvah Candle)
Christianity is the universalist fourth empire religion. Quoting the Apostle Paul...
[Jee-Zeus] ... has made the two groups [Jews and Gentiles] one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside... the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace.... (Letter to the Ephesians, New Testament)
Because some of our ancestors who were not so gullible resisted, Jews still survive as a distinct group today, but there is no doubt that a new wave of pressure is being brought to bear to convince a new generation to give in and become one.
Here are some examples...
Call for Establishing A Universal New Israel
We call upon all people, of all religions, cultures and nations worldwide who would love to be counted as “Israelites” (“The Righteous People of God”) to come forth to re-establish the Universal, Holistic Israel, with its full constituency of 12 Nations (or "Tribes").
To form a global unified (12-fold) Messianic Body that aims to fulfill the Biblical Plan for Global Redemption. This was the plan of the Biblical patriarchs and prophets – including the “genuine Jesus”....
The need to create a novel Universal Zionism that is not exclusively Jewish.
To heal the roots of the Jewish-Christian Schism, as well as the Muslim-Christian and Muslim-Jewish schisms.
To develop the universal 12-Tribe structure of Knesset Yisrael - the Holystic Israel. Untie the exclusiveness of Judaism and Zionism to make Judah a blessing for his brothers (Gen. 49:8).
To establish at the center of the Earth's continents, in Jerusalem, a House of Prayer and moral-spiritual Ascent for all Nations and for disseminating the Universal teachings.

...Maybe our mission on earth is not to embrace nationalism and the fetishizing of ethnicity – but to bring the values of cosmopolitanism, humanism, rule of law, and embracing diversity, that we lived for in exile around the world — that protected us in Russia, France, Italy, Spain — and did not protect us when they were weakened — into the universe? Maybe our gift is supposed to be knowing what being an exile, stateless, homeless, feels like — so bringing universal values of justice, liberal humanism, democracy, the search for truth in a context of free speech, and civil society — into every society. (Naomi Wolfe)

United Israel World Union
The primary purposes of UIWU are to represent a universal version of the Hebraic faith to the non-Jewish world, based primarily on the Hebrew Bible, as well as to provide a meeting place for Jews with non-Jews who are accordingly drawn to this message. The hallmark of the organization is Isaiah’s prescription that “My house will become a house of prayer for all peoples.” ...Membership is based on the simple declaration of faith in the One God of Israel and a commitment to live according to the principles of the Hebrew Bible.

[Alice] Bailey taught a form of universal spirituality that transcended denominational identification, believing that, "Every class of human beings is a group of brothers. Catholics, Jews, Gentiles, occidentals and orientals are all the sons of God." She stated that all religions originate from the same spiritual source, and that humanity will eventually come to realize this, and as they do so, the result will be the emergence of a universal world religion and a "new world order".

[A] central tenet of Reform Judaism is the belief that it is the universal mission of Jews to spread God's message, to be a light unto the nations.
Parashat Shemot - Jeopardizing all our accomplishments - Rabbi Meir Kahane and Rav Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane
By killing the Egyptian, Moses bound himself inexorably to his nation and to his destiny. He jeopardized all his property, his glittering life-style, even his very life, if his deed would be discovered – but nevertheless, he did not hesitate. As the Mekhilta says:
[Moses] gave his soul for Israel, and they were called by his name… And where do we find that Moses gave his soul for them? – It is said…“and he went out to his brothers…and he smote the Egyptian”. So, because he gave his soul for Israel, they were called by his name (Mekhilta de-Rabbi Yishmael, Shirata 1, s.v. “et hashira hazot”).
Now, Moses could have thought this through carefully, and run away from the problem. He could have reasoned: Is it really worthwhile to endanger myself by killing this Egyptian? Would it not be better for me to ignore this one incident, to remain the king’s son, and thereby be able to help the Israelites in the future? More than this: perhaps it is not worth killing this Egyptian, for in any case, he has already killed the Jew, so what good will killing this Egyptian do? Will that bring the Jew back to life? And in any case, maybe it is forbidden for me to endanger myself, since this is not a case of saving a Jewish life, since this Jew is already dead? And more than this: perhaps I am not allowed to kill this Egyptian, for I am not a duly constituted court, and perhaps the verse "Neither is it good for the tzaddik to punish" (Proverbs 17:26) applies to me. (See Berakhot 7a: Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi wanted to harness G-d’s “moment of fury,” which occurs once every day, to curse a heretic and kill him, but when the time came, he dozed off. His response was that presumably this happened because "Neither is it good for the tzaddik to punish".)
Moses, however, understood that this accounting is false. He understood that in a situation of hillul HaShem, all these arguments together carry no weight – even pikuah nefesh (saving of lives), which usually takes precedence over all other commandments, does not justify hillul HaShem (even for an individual in private, unless there is definite danger to life; in public, even if there is an absolute certainty of being killed).
Neither can one make a finely-balanced accounting, to the effect that “perhaps I can do better another way, in another time and another place”.
(In the commentary that Rav Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane wrote on Parashat Shemot, we find a similar concept that he also links to our present situation:)
At the end of “Parashat Shemot” we find a confrontation between Moses and Aaron on the one hand and the officers of the children of Israel on the other: On the one side stood Moses and Aaron who had been assigned by HaShem to carry out a seemingly suicidal mission: to enter uninvited into the house of the king, of the imperial, menacing kingdom of Egypt, and to request that he let the Jewish slaves go free. In spite of the odds, Moses and Aaron, with faith in HaShem, went and fulfilled their mission completely. (According to our sages, all the elders that accompanied them dropped out along the way because of tremendous fear, until Moses and Aaron alone remained to face Pharaoh). And certainly Pharaoh rejected their request out of hand. [The officers then accused them:] “May HaShem look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us!”. (Shemot 5:21). And truthfully, reality proves the officers were correct.
Seemingly, just after Moses and Aaron leave Pharaoh's presence, a harsh decree is put upon the nation. And with all this...the officers were not right! The reason (and also the lesson from this) is that there is almost never a revolution or change where the first stages do not involve a loss of accomplishment!
...And sometimes, even in the case of true accomplishments, we must know that in order to bring change, there is no choice but to lose real accomplishments, at least temporarily. Because there will always be one Pharaoh or another who will threaten that if we don't sit quietly he will nullify our achievements, “and you will lose out because of this.” But if we give in to his threats, we will remain captives in the hand of Pharaoh, we, our children and our children's children ... until the end of the generations.... Whoever wants change needs to warmly thank the “existing officers” for their accomplishments, but say to them: now we are going further, we are going to progress.
It is possible that part of your accomplishments or some of your accomplishments will be lost, either temporarily or permanently. But this is the price to pay for reaching the greater and ultimate goal. We were not born in order to be slaves with improved conditions in Egypt; we were born to be redeemed. We were not born to live in villas in settlements surrounded by fences, like ghettos [...], we were born to conquer and rule all of the land of Israel. [...] And if the price, more or less temporarily, is the loss of status...due to lack of participation on the part of the existing regime, or the necessity to gather our own straw to make bricks for a while, the price is worth it. For we were not born to live with the status quo, after the fact. We were born to establish an ideal world, as it was at the beginning!
Rabbi Meir Kahane continues in Peirush HaMaccabee on Shemot: And he smote the Egyptian, measure for measure. He killed the Hebrew, and Moses killed him. Samson expressed this same sentiment to the Jews who were afraid when they came to hand him over to the Philistines after he smote them: And they said to Samson: Do you not know that the Philistines rule over us? What have you done to us?! And he said to them: As they did to me, so I did to them (Judges 15:11).
This is a Jewish response – not to let the Gentile smite with impunity, for every single blow desecrates the Children of Israel and is blasphemy against G-d’s Name. Anyone who smites a Jew must be smitten in return. More than this: Moses’ smiting the Egyptian was the Children of Israel’s first response ever to the blows they had received, and foreshadowed all the blows, all the plagues, that G-d would yet inflict upon Egypt.
And buried him in the sand. This symbolizes the humiliation of the arrogant Gentile who, in his self-pride, thinks that he can reach the very heavens. The prophet said, "Take up a lament for Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and say to him: You likened yourself to a young lion among the nations, but you are like a crocodile of the seas… With the swords of the mighty I will bring down your multitudes…and they will despoil the glory of Egypt" (Ezekiel 32:2, 12). But now, instead of ascending to heaven, the Egyptian whom Moses killed was buried in the sand, in the ground – as low as possible – foreshadowing the humiliation of the whole of Egypt. And such will be in the future, too, when G-d will destroy the nations’ pride and show the glory of His might. "Enter the rock, and bury yourself in the dust because of the fear of HaShem and the glory of His greatness. Man’s arrogant eyes will be humiliated, and people’s haughtiness will be humbled, and HaShem alone will be exalted on that day" (Isaiah 2:10-11).

[Following is a repost from Nissan 5781. In future, with God's help, we are going to revisit a lot of information that is as pertinent today as the day it was originally written.]
When our enemies saw that they could not succeed in physically annihilating us out of existence, they determined to assimilate us out of existence. It takes longer but it's just as effective.
Once our attachment to the "Biblical Heartland" has been broken and the Arabs have destroyed any evidence left of our 3,300-year "occupation," future generations will accept the new narrative without question.
And now that the ruling regime in Eretz Yisrael has truly ceased to be a "Jewish State" - even in name only - and has embraced its destiny as a State for All of Its Citizens, future generations will simply accept that the premises posed by a 2020 movie called "Interreflections" were always true.
This film is not something I would recommend as entertainment. It is tedious and pretentious, even appropriately enough, psychedelic at times, but always pure propaganda. It's not meant to be entertainment. It is meant to shape minds. In keeping with the New Age (i.e., New World Order) agenda, it condemns "organized religion" while singing the praises of "spirituality" where everyone follows his own path to enlightenment, and God, if He even exists, goes by many names. Here is a quote I pulled out...
"...neutralize the group identity problem. ...There is no such thing as a Jewish person. ...lighting a menorah creates ritualistic connection that can have great personal meaning,.... The moment you go from a person who enjoys the practice of something to saying [for example] I am Jewish, is the moment you draw dangerous lines through the species."
"There is only one race. The human race. And within the confines of that fact, to separate yourself any further leads to absolutely nothing positive."
This is nothing new. It is very reminiscent of this...
...A necessary preparation for the leap upward [in human evolution] is the isolation, refinement and preservation of the top 10% of humanity as the new "seed". The major New Age efforts at indoctrination are therefore designed to get the other 90% of humanity to accept this elitist selection as necessary and just, and if possible to secure their cooperation in the purge.
...High on the list of those 90% which must be eliminated are the Jews who insist on Jewish identity: "When humanity has solved the Jewish problem (with the understanding and cooperation of the Jew)... it will do so by fusing the problem in one vast humanitarian situation.
Like a global pandemic???
When that happens [the dissolution of the "Jewish race"], the problem [the presence of "separation" and "hate" in the world] will be rapidly solved and one of the major difficulties will disappear off the face of the earth. Racial fusion* will then be possible... and then there will be peace on earth." (Alice Bailey, _Externalisation_ II, p.77) In other words, the entire fusion process which is to further human evolution is on hold until the Jews disappear as a group. She named this as one of four major "world problems" that must be solved within "the next two centuries" (the other three are humanity's attachment to old-age notions of national territory, sex and death). When Jews forget that they are Jews, "we shall see a very different world." (_The Destiny of Nations_ p.34-35)
* What is "racial fusion" but assimilation???
It would be very beneficial to your understanding of current events to go back and review this series: The Coming World Religion. I also highly recommend reading (or even re-reading) The Rainbow Swastika by Hannah Newman which is where I found the above quotes.
"They" are not coming for us, people. They already came! And we are nearing a tipping point. As soon as the Nazis escaped to the West, the assimilation phase of the War Against the Jews began.
I'm only writing this so you will understand "why" things are happening as they are and to encourage you to strengthen your unique identity as a Jew. No matter what they tell you and how much they try to wear you down, you have to keep believing that you are part of a treasured people in covenant with the Master of the Universe. The Ramchal explains that the Jew is like a separate species from the Gentile, which is one reason why intermarriage is forbidden. Maybe this would be racist if there were not a path open to the Gentile to "ascend" to the higher level of a Jew, but there is.
There is certainly no danger of this unique and holy people disappearing as the enemies of God desire, but individual members are vulnerable to the confusion created by a lack in their knowledge. We can see so many Jews today - too many - even from the "Orthodox leadership" in Eretz Yisrael, who are front and center promoting assimilation of Judaism into a World Religion that embraces everyone and everything on equal terms.
Once Jews began to accept the idea of "coexistence" in this land with non-Jews, and protecting the "rights" of all religions to their "holy places," it opened the door to everything else we are seeing wrong here, where Jews and the Torah have become marginalized to the point of practically disappearing! The ideology is very insidious. We have to protect ourselves and those we can influence - especially our children!
Since so many Jews in this generation are lacking a solid Torah-true Jewish education, Judaism, as it is being practiced today, is far off the mark of what the Torah actually requires of us. Even when Tanakh is being taught to Jewish kids in a so-called Jewish State, the evil regime sees to it that it is taught from a Christian perspective and according to Christian understanding,* Hashem yerachem! (* Story below.)
So it's not even just that we've been dumbed down, so to speak, but Judaism is being corrupted and perverted from every direction. Our mitzvot are not accomplishing all they could in the upper worlds, and we see the proof of that in our physical reality, because we don't really know or understand what we are meant to be doing and, in fact, we are being led farther and farther astray of our mission, either ignorantly or maliciously, by false teachers.
The World War against Jews and Judaism in this generation is focused on taking advantage of this vulnerability and focusing on uniting Jews with the nations and their cultures in direct opposition to the expressed will of the Creator, blessed be He. Therefore, our task has to be to bring Torah, real and true Torah, not "to the nations" but to OUR NATION!
We have to do everything within our power to stand in the path of the wave of assimilation which threatens to destroy us and stop its advance, hopefully even to turn the tide, by spreading this most important message: we must remain a nation apart. We have to bring the sources and prove to our fellow uneducated Jews that it is the will of HKB"H that we remain separate from the nations. We have to demonstrate successfully that what is taking place now with interfaith endeavors is not a new acceptance of our mission on their part, but a final attempt to eradicate it. We have to enunciate it clearly and unequivocally to our fellow rebellious Jews who wish only to fulfill their own will rather than that of their Father and King. They say they want to serve humanity, but really they are serving themselves, boosting their inflated egos even more.
The Jewish nation accepted to be servants of HKB"H at Har Sinai, not humanity!!
Therefore, this blog is going to do everything in the author's power to keep pressing this point home, for as long as it takes.
Like the Borg, Christian "Lovers of Israel" only love us as long as we are becoming more and more like them, until we have become "one" with them and that is what is behind all their interfaith initiatives and their Israel "programs" (which are really spiritual pogroms.)
(To regular readers here, the following will be old news, but I'm sure there are some who have never heard about it. Search "Heather Johnston" or "JH Israel" on this blog.)
Israel’s Education Ministry is providing state funding for a Bible programme developed by evangelical Christians in which thousands of Israeli schoolchildren are expected to participate this year alone.
JH Israel has established a “National Leadership Centre” (NLC) in the West Bank settlement of Ariel, with its website describing how there has been “a partnership formed between JH Israel and Israel’s Ministry of Education to develop a values-based leadership curriculum that focuses on the characters of Israel’s biblical/cultural heritage.”
The founder and executive director of JH Israel, Heather Johnston, together with her husband Bruce, run the JH Ranch evangelical summer camp in California. As reported by Haaretz, a spokesperson for the Education Ministry confirmed that almost a million Shekels of funding had been agreed.
In a post on the JH Israel website titled “five things the new agreement with Israel’s Ministry of Education means”, the agreement is described as having come into effect in February of this year. It describes how thanks to the Israeli government's funding, “4,000 more students will attend the NLC in 2018 and more will come annually in future years”, and that “the NLC becomes the only recognized provider of leadership and biblical content for Israel’s Ministry of Education.”
The JH Israel website also states that "through the National Leadership Centre, JH Israel has stepped into the unfolding history of modern Israel by contributing to the larger story of what God is doing in Israel.
"The need for strong values and moral character in leadership has never been more evident," the site says.
"Through the National Leadership Center, JH Israel collaborates directly with Israeli leaders to develop a biblical, values-based educational initiative to meet this need."
Traditionally the Israeli government has been extremely wary of partnerships with Christian organisations. Previously, the Education Ministry had declined 40 million Shekels in funding from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews for a summer programme.
However, Naftali Bennett, the hard-right leader of the Jewish Home party and the current Education Minister, appears to have a close relationship with Mrs Johnston. In 2016, the evangelical executive posted a picture of the two together calling Mr Bennett “a good friend and amazing leader for Israel! He has a heart for G-d, and for developing programs based on biblical values for Israeli society. We love Naftali!”
A quote from Mr Bennett on the JH Israel website describes his visit to the NLC, in which he says "I discovered a dynamic place, working to prepare a new generation of leaders for Israel. The Center raises questions that set the stage for personal growth and opportunities in an ever-changing and challenging environment."
A spokesperson for the Education Ministry told Haaretz that the money would not be handed over directly to the evangelical organisation, but to the local municipal authority in charge of running the NLC.
Who else despises the chutspah of these idolaters to presume to teach and explain our book to US! Of course, what they mean to do is indoctrinate our future generations into Judeo-Christianity!! What can Judeo-Christianity produce but Judeo-Christians???!!!
Heather would not disagree. You see, in Judaism, chutspah is an undesirable character trait, but as is typical, it's just the opposite in Christianity.
By the way, you should know and understand that when they talk about Jews losing their "heart of stone" and receiving their "heart of flesh", they are talking about our future mass conversion to Christianity which they envision where we all bow down in worship before their god - Yeshu, God forbid a thousand times!!
2021 Heather Johnston to CBN -“In order to actually be Jesus’ disciples, we must undergo a dramatic turning to him and away from all else.” It involves what Scripture refers to in Ezekiel 36:26 as God turning our hearts of stone to hearts of flesh. Heather believes this happens when we undergo what she calls an identity exchange. “As we exchange our fragile identity for the identity of a talmid of Jesus, we become our true selves.”
And this is what they are hoping and trying to bring about in the lives of our school children, soldiers and future leaders.
2021June 24, FB post “JH Israel and the National Leadership Center exists to impact Israel's next generation of leaders. Since 2010, more than 85,000 Israeli youth have come to the NLC to understand their identity and life purpose. On the hills of Samaria, young people connect personally to God and to their biblical heritage through the stories of David, Joshua, Caleb, Moses and Abraham. God anticipated a supernatural shift in the spiritual life of Israel that would impact the nations. (Ezekiel 36:26)
Recall who they believe "God" is! How could a Christian teach Jewish kids "to understand their identity and life purpose" and how to "connect to God"??!! Obviously, they can't. They intend to make them Christians, or rather "Judeo-Christians." This is a "long-con" conversion plan.

16 Tevet 5782
In the beginning, the Creator made order out of chaos (B'reishit, chapter 1). Those who would deny the Creator and set themselves in His place are bringing chaos from which to create a new world order. Their stated goal is "out of many - one," a global unity without God, r"l, their "one" to replace The One.
Excerpts from Havdalah (Separation) by Rabbi Meir Kahane
in Or Hara'ayon, chapter 25
...G-d established two great and fundamental principles for Israel, namely, 1) separation and isolationism from the nations, and 2) clinging to G-d. Israel must separate themselves from evil and from the nations to the precise degree that they are commanded to cling to G-d.
...G-d decreed upon holy Israel that they must be separated from impurity and from the impure nations. The idolatry and foreign culture of the nations cannot coexist with G-d's Torah or with G-d Himself. It, therefore, says, "You shall be holy to Me, for I, the L-rd, am holy, and I have separated you out from among the nations to be Mine." (Lev. 20:26) Our sages comment, " 'I have separated you out from among the nations to be Mine': If you are separated from the nations, then you are Mine, otherwise, you belong to Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylonia and his associates." (Torat Kohanim, Kedoshim, 9)
Israel's being separated from the nations is so important because, if Israel, chosen to be G-d's holy, special people, are not set apart from them, but influenced by their culture, why then, were Israel created? What special purpose is there for the existence of Israel and the world? If they are like Nebuchadnezzar in behavior and thought, in their impurity, arrogance and profanations, why should G-d defend them and ensure their survival?....
G-d established that there must be no unity between Israel and the nations. They must not mix or mingle together. The walls separating them must never come down. Rather, there must be separation, borders, a division. This separation, indeed, serves the purpose of unity, but genuine unity of a world under Divine sovereignty, for a united world of falsehood is not G-d's will....
The argument of the nations... is that we must achieve unity and break down the walls of separation. Is this not fair and logical according to the false thinking of the worshippers of foreign culture? Is not the unity of all nations and the disappearance of differences between Israel and the nations the goal of the Hellenists, who in any event have already put an end to every logical and intellectual difference between themselves and the nations? Before us we have a recommendation for one world and one people, and why should Israel remain alone, a nation that dwells apart?
...The admiration of the whole world, a "light unto the nations"... here is their basic enticement, adopted also by the Hellenists and falsifiers of Israel. They have distorted the concept of Israel being a "covenant of the people, a light unto the nations." (Isaiah 42:6) In their hands, this has turned into a demand that we depart the Land of our isolation and cling to the nations in the exile, living there with them in order to serve as their beacon.
[In our day, it is they who wish to be allowed to come here and join with us in this holy land as one people and one nation - both Jew and gentile together, G-d forbid!**]
To achieve this, we are supposed to abandon unpleasant, "unacceptable" concepts and laws, lest these make the nations hate us, and all this in the name of unity. That is, we are supposed to assimilate for the sake of unity....
Certainly, G-d's goal is world unity, but not based on falsehood and evil, and not through acceptance of the abominable concepts of coexistence and tolerance which pave the way for equating holiness and abomination, good and evil. Unity is desirable but only after goodness reigns in the world and all accept G-d's sovereignty. When G-d's truth and mastery reign on earth, there will be real unity. It will come precisely through separation.
...The separation G-d decreed upon the universe as a supreme value serves to divide between good and evil. Therefore, the Torah says, "G-d saw the light, that it was good, and he separated between the light and the darkness." This implies that not only was the light good, but so was it's separation from darkness, good from evil.
From the Havdalah Service...
Blessed are You, our G-d, King of the Universe Who separates between holy and profane, between Light and darkness, between Israel and other nations, between
"...send and gather for me all of Israel to Mount Carmel,.... And Elijah drew near to all the people and said, "Until when are you hopping between two ideas?If the Lord is God, go after Him, and if the Baal, go after him." And the people did not answer him a word." (Melachim I 18:21)
In that same place, the Children of Israel in 5782 are invited to engage with the idolaters of the 21st century...
The 'Holiday of Holidays' festival in the Arab Israeli neighborhood of Wadi Nisnas in Haifa offers holiday-themed food markets and gift shops, with the purpose of promoting coexistence and tolerance among all religions
In our day and age, there is a love affair going on between some Jews and some Christians. This is spiritual adultery - a betrayal of our marriage covenant with HKB"H.
Those Jews have somehow convinced themselves that the Christians worship the same God as we do and count them as righteous gentiles, so where is the harm, they ask. They discount the words of our holy sages and the received halachah forbidding interfaith relations and entering churches and refuse to accept any reproof.
This is written for those on the sidelines who are still deciding. Do the Christians worship the same God that we do or not? Are they truly idolaters or are they considered as "righteous among the nations"? They claim to believe in the "God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob," but is that true?
Listen to one of the major Evangelical leaders in America - Mike Bickle - as he answers those questions. He claims that Christian Arabs are going to be the conduit for Jewish conversion at the End of Days, which he says is imminent.
[If you'd rather not hear it, you can read from the transcript below the video.]
These Arab and Egyptians are going to get radically committed to Jesus where there's already a bunch of radically committed ones but it's going to be millions in this great revival. And these Arab and Egyptian believers are going to be so in love with Jesus, the God of Israeland so overwhelmed by his beauty and his love for them, that they are going to stand with Jesus to reach out to the unsaved Jews in flight who don't believe in Jesus and they don't know who the God of Israel is. They think he's you know the God of Israel, the god of Moses up in heaven.They don't know it's literally Jesus and as these Jews are in flight these Arab believers are going to open up their homes to them and they're gonna be saying what what. Now, what's the deal with you? They can say no, we love you becausethe God of Israel, his name is Jesus, loves us. That he's revealed his love for you to us and we're with him and we love you. And I'm sure these Jews in flight, many of them are gonna go “no wait a second, this is, you’re, you know, a part of these Islamic nations. Although some of these will be former Muslims who are radically converted. And so we believe there's a great revival scheduled on God's calendar that's starting to happen right now but it's gonna really crescendo but it's gonna go beyond multitudes getting saved. These multitudes getting saved are going to understand the divine narrative that God has set this thing in order, that they could be a place of protection a place of provision refuge for these Jews in flight.
This is pure idolatry as the Rambam says:
“The Christians are idol worshippers and Sunday is their festival.” (Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Avodat Kochavim…, Perek Tet)
“Can there be a greater stumbling block than Christianity? All the prophets spoke of the Messiah as the redeemer of Israel and its savior, who would gather their dispersed and strengthen their observance of the mitzvot. By contrast, Christianity caused the Jews to be slain by the sword, their remnants to be scattered and humbled, the Torah to be altered, and the majority of the world to err and serve a god other than the Lord. (Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Avodat Kochavim…, Perek Yud Aleph)
And now fear the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth; and remove the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the river and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.
And if it displeases you to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell, but as for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord."
And the nation answered and said, "God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods;
For the Lord our God, it is He Who brought us and our fathers up from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and Who performed these great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the peoples through whom we passed. (Joshua 24:14-17)
God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods, because you can't do both!!! Choose this day whom you will serve!!!
"All these are the tribes of Israel - twelve - and this is what their father spoke to them and he blessed them; he blessed each according to his appropriate blessing." (Bereshit 49:28)
When Levi is counted, Ephraim and Menashe count as one - Yosef, but when Levi is not counted, as in the division of the land where Levi does not inherit (Hashem being their portion), then Ephraim and Menashe are counted separately. There are always 12 tribes.
God thus made the rectification and elevation of all creation totally dependent on the Jews. To the extent that this can be expressed, we can thus say that He subjugated His Providence to them. Through their deeds, they can cause [His Light] to shine forth and have influence, or, on the other hand, hold it back and conceal it.
The deeds of the other nations, on the other hand, do not add to or subtract from the state of creation, nor do they cause God to reveal Himself or withdraw. All they can do is bring about their own gain or loss, and strengthen or weaken their own directing angel.
Although God does not involve Himself expressly in the direction of the nations in detail, it is possible that He should exercise His Providence over them when it is required for the sake of Israel. This may be because of a single Jew, or for a number of them. (Derech Hashem, Part II, Chapter 4 - Israel and the Nations, Section 9)
Imagine what would be forthcoming for the entire nation of them!! In the previous blog post, I wrote:
"Every time something horrendous happens via the weather in the USA, it's always because something terrible is being cooked up against the Jews."
This is not an original idea. Others, like William Koenig got the message. He wrote a book about it.
2017 Expanded Edition. Over one hundred billion-dollar, record-setting catastrophes and/or events occurred while US presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump were pressuring or calling on Israel to divide their covenant land.
The costliest insurance events, the costliest hurricanes, the largest tornado outbreaks, the "Perfect Storm," the 9/11 terror events, and Hurricane Katrina corresponded to White House pressure on Israel to divide their land.
...The God of Israel will continue to rebuke those leaders and their nations attempting to divide His land! (Amazon Review)
Consider these news reports which have come out since Sunday...
The Biden administration has put the issue of settlements on the same level as the Iranian nuclear threat in its discussions with Israeli officials, multiple Israeli diplomatic sources said in recent days.
“The Americans bring up ‘settler violence’ all the time, obsessively,” a senior diplomatic source in Jerusalem lamented.
When Defense Minister Benny Gantz was in Washington last week to implore the Americans to take a tougher stance against the Iranian nuclear threat, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken insisted they devote equal time to discussing settlements as they did to Iran, which Israeli diplomatic sources found baffling.
Blinken told Gantz that the Israeli government’s settlement activity is “destroying the chance of a two-state solution.”
And there is no telling what else is going on behind closed doors, but anytime you see something "historic" like this, just know that something evil is being plotted against the Jews!
American Jews, you were supposed to be spared. You've had 20 years - an entire generation - after 9/11 to get the message and come home and board The Ark - Eretz Yisrael. You see, this is only the the beginning, the precursors to the real cataclysm when the Sun explodes.
