My new blog site AND Yeshiva Lesson 1.1: What is Messianic Judaism

Hi everyone, I would like to invite you to join my new Multiply site! --
It is replacing my Noahide Nazarene blog.

The blog you are currently reading will now be focusing more on politics and general info while the new blog (jewtoo) will focus more on my Messianic Jewish writings. I hope you will join me there as well!

Part of what the new blog will include will be the course work for the free online Yeshiva Rebbe Larry Levine and I are now creating. Yeshiva Beth HaShem is still in its infancy and we are now accepting talmidim (students). If you have ever wondered what authentic Messianic Judaism is, here's your chance to find out!

You are invited to read our studies as they are being produced and posted, and if you are interested, to join the Yeshiva. We will be offering two certificate programs and two levels of ordination. The classes will go from the basics to advanced knowledge: from Seeker to Messianic Rabbi.

I have also created a new website (online soon)

Following is Lesson 1 of course 1.

For more information on Yeshiva Beth HaShem or to become a student go to:

If you have any questions or thoughts feel free to contact me.

Yeshiva Beth HaShem

Lesson 1:1: Messianic Judaism.

Welcome to Yeshiva Beth HaShem!

This Yeshiva offers instruction in Messianic Judaism.

Like most theological terms, "Messianic Judaism" means different things to different people. We use the term in a very specific way here, and as a member of this yeshiva it is important to understand how this term is used.


    We believe Y'shua the Nazarene (commonly referred to as "Jesus of Nazareth") was and is the Messiah of Israel. We affirm that his name in Hebrew is not Jesus but Y'shua (Yeshua). This is confirmed by the following verse:
    Matthew 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua, [which means `ADONAI saves,'] because he will save his people from their sins."

    Throughout these lessons we will refer to the God of Israel as HaShem (The KING/the Name) and Adonai (The LORD). As HaShem He is King of kings. As Adonai He is Lord of lords (compare Psalm 82).

    The Messiah (or "Moshiach" in Hebrew) is the man prophesied in the Hebrew Scriptures (the "Old Testament" or "Tanakh") who will one day restore the Kingdom of Israel, free the Jewish people and our gentile brothers and sisters from all forms of bondage. He will restore the proper worship of the God of Israel under a righteous theocratic (God directed) kingdom. The word Moshiach means "the anointed." HaShem has anointed him to do these things. Many people are referred to in Scripture as "anointed" but only one will be the Moshiach. One of the critical prophecies about Moshiach is:

    Isaiah 11:1 But a branch will emerge from the trunk of Yishai, a shoot will grow from his roots.
    2 The Spirit of ADONAI will rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power, the Spirit of knowledge and fearing ADONAI
    3 he will be inspired by fearing ADONAI. He will not judge by what his eyes see or decide by what his ears hear,
    4 but he will judge the impoverished justly; he will decide fairly for the humble of the land. He will strike the land with a rod from his mouth and slay the wicked with a breath from his lips.
    5 Justice will be the belt around his waist, faithfulness the sash around his hips.
    6 The wolf will live with the lamb; the leopard lie down with the kid; calf, young lion and fattened lamb together, with a little child to lead them.
    7 Cow and bear will feed together, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
    8 An infant will play on a cobra's hole, a toddler put his hand in a viper's nest.
    9 They will not hurt or destroy anywhere on my holy mountain, for the earth will be as full of the knowledge of ADONAI as water covering the sea.
    10 On that day the root of Yishai, which stands as a banner for the peoples - the Goyim will seek him out, and the place where he rests will be glorious.
    11 On that day Adonai will raise his hand again, a second time, to reclaim the remnant of his people who remain from Ashur, Egypt, Patros, Ethiopia, 'Eilam, Shin'ar, Hamat and the islands in the sea.
    12 He will hoist a banner for the Goyim, assemble the dispersed of Isra'el, and gather the scattered of Y'hudah from the four corners of the earth.

    Please carefully read the entire eleventh chapter of Isaiah for more understanding.

    This word "branch" (11:1) in Hebrew is netser. For this reason he is called Y'shua the Nazarene ("Y'shua the Branch," i.e. the Messiah). This is the same root word used in the city name: Nazareth, and so we also sometimes refer to him as Y'shua of Nazareth. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance (#H5342) defines netser this way:

    netser: (nay'-tser) in the sense of greenness as a striking color; a shoot; figuratively, a descendant: - branch.

    Our adon (master) is therefore referred to as Y'shua the Nazarene because it is he of whom this important prophecy speaks. He is also call Y'shua of Nazareth because he lived there as a child. Both are appropriate.

    As the excellent Jewish web resource Judaism 101 affirms, Isaiah chapter 11 is a messianic prophecy. Of course they do not regard Y'shua as Moshiach.

    Did Y'shua fulfill all of the conditions in this prophecy? No. He clearly did not. This is one reason why most Jews do not accept him as Moshiach. Moshiach must fulfill all of the messianic prophecies, this is why they were revealed by the Ruach HaKodesh (the Presence of HaShem), so we could identify him when he came.

    Part of being a Messianic Jew is the understanding that while we refer to him as Y'shua HaMoshiach (Y'shua the Messiah) he has not yet fulfilled all of the Messianic prophecies. We call him this because we have faith that one day he will take up the mantle of Moshiach. Like other Jews, we await the coming of Moshiach. Unlike other Jews, we believe he has already come and fulfilled the first part of his task. He will complete the rest when he returns. We will focus on this matter in much greater detail in future lessons.


    Judaism refers to the religion and culture of the House of Judah. For our present purposes, the Jewish people can be considered synonymous with the people known in the Bible as the Israelites (also called Am Israel: "People Israel"). There is more to it than this but for now this will suffice. We will have much more to share about Jewish history, culture and religion in due course.

    Simply stated Judaism is the religion established by the One True God at Mount Sinai. The Jews became a people with father Avraham (Abraham) and a religion with Moshe (Moses). We will have more to say on this later as well. Judaism is not a static religion!

    For our present purposes, people become Jews in two ways. There are those who are born of Jewish mothers and there are those who convert into Judaism. Both types of people are fully Jewish.

    Jewish denominations are known as Movements. The principle Jewish Movements are as follows:

    Orthodox Judaism: In Israel this is by far the largest movement. In other countries such as the USA it is not. Orthodox Judaism is the most Torah observant and Torah based of the movements. It includes groups like Hasidic Judaism (including Chabad), and other Torah observant groups. By far, the Orthodox wield the most authority. Orthodox Judaism only accepts their own converts as being Jewish (unless they meet strict requirements). The vast majority of converts to Judaism in the West are not accepted as Jews by the Orthodox.
    Conservative Judaism: A mixture of traditional and modern ideas, leans towards tradition.
    Reform Judaism: A mixture of traditional and modern ideas, leans towards modern ideas.
    Reconstructionist Judaism: Does not practice Torah observance or most traditions and is essentially universalist minded.
    Independent Judaism: This is a growing movement outside of Israel. It is shul (local temple) based and varies in its Torah observance etc.
    Messianic Judaism: Arguably more closely aligned with Orthodox Judaism than the other movements. Unfortunately because we accept the reforms of Rebbe Y'shua none of the Jewish movements accept Messianic Judaism.
      Be aware: Not everyone using the term Messianic Judaism is practicing "the Way" as taught by Y'shua. Many are Evangelical Christians hoping to make Christianity appear biblical. These missionaries merely co-opt Jewish garb, seeking to convert Jews to Christianity. This is a very common and serious misdirection that should be avoided at all cost (Genesis 12:1-3).

    The above movements are all "rabbinical": They emerged from the Judaism of the "P'rushim" (or Pharisee) sect mentioned in the New Testament scriptures (or "B'rit Hadashah" in Hebrew) as well as in the two non-biblical books of the Maccabees. The P'rushim came to be known as the Rabbis.

    There also exists the Karaite Jews (Karaism). This Jewish sect emerged from the Tz'dukim (Sadducees), also referenced in the New Testament (B'rit Hadashah).

To be a Messianic Jew is to be a Jew who embraces the Messiah: Y'shua HaMoshiach. The Hebrew word "Moshiach" is commonly translated into English as "Messiah." Both terms are appropriate: Y'shua HaMoshiach and Y'shua the Messiah.

All who accept the B'rit Hadashah (New Covenant) given by HaShem through Y'shua are "grafted into" or "adopted into" Am Israel as Messianic Jews (Romans 11). Y'shua never established nor practiced any religion other than Judaism and neither do his talmidim (students/disciples). So-called "replacement theology," the belief that the Church has replaced Israel as the Elect of HaShem is a heresy that must be soundly rejected by all who love Y'shua. He was very clear on this point when he told the woman of Samaria:

John 4:22 You people don't know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation comes from the Jews.

In later lessons we will discuss the history of the religion of Christianity. For now it is important to understand that the religion of Y'shua is Judaism, not Christianity. As his students ("talmidim" in Hebrew) we are most accurately termed: Messianic Jews.

The Return of Y'shua and Psalms 110: Understanding Y'shua as Cohen Gadol and Moshiach

The Earth belongs to HaShem
"The Earth Belongs to HaShem and the Fullness Thereof."

The Return of Y'shua and Psalms 110:
Understanding Y'shua as Cohen Gadol and Moshiach

By Rabbi Yochanan ben Avraham (John of AllFaith) 06.22.10
(last updated 12.28.10) Also posted HERE

Psalms 110:1 A Psalm of David. HaShem said unto my lord ["adon"], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2 HaShem shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
110:4 HaShem hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5 HaShem at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

This short Psalm reveals an important insight into Master Y'shua and his ongoing ministry that many Jews (including many Messianic Jews) and Nicene Christians generally overlook.

First we affirm that this is a Psalm of David (not to or about him) as the text clearly says. The Hebrew reads simply: mizmor david: "psalm [of] David" as it is normally translated. The same exact phrase is used in several of his other psalms where David's authorship is not questioned. Every time mizmor david is used it is translated as a Psalm of David and means that he is the author. The authorship of this Psalm is important because it says 'Adonai said to my lord/master..." Whose lord or master determines the context of what is said as we will see. Compare the JPS version on this: The LORD saith unto my lord.

Were this written to or about David rather than by him, as some maintain seeking to conceal the real identity, then 'my lord/master' would be referring to David and the meaning would be completely altered. David of course was never a priest in the order of Melchizedek or otherwise (verse 4) and so this can not possibly be referring to him as "my lord." Indeed recall that due to David's indiscretions HaShem had David's son Shlo'mo (Solomon) build the Beit HaMikdash (Temple) rather than David. This Psalm therefore obviously can not be referring to David. It was revealed to him about his lord (and ours).

The only logical interpretation is that HaShem was saying these things to David's lord (adon). David is saying by way of prophecy that HaShem is revealing what follows to and about his master, the Moshiach. As Messianic Jews we therefore understand this to be a direct reference to the ministry of Master Y'shua and to his two advents or comings.

This Psalm then is a prophecy about the Moshiach and includes a very important teaching that is usually missed.

HaShem is prophetically telling Master Y'shua, "Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool."

From this we therefore perceive a definite time break: Master Y'shua will be (from David's perspective) present in his first advent however then he will have to wait until HaShem vanquishes his enemies as a footstool (verse 1).

How will this take place and how long will his wait be? Master Y'shua references this waiting period as follows:

Luke 21:24; And they [the Jewish people] shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations [as occurred/began in 70 CE]: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

How long will these "times of the Gentiles" last? Mark covers this same teaching but records this important point made by the Master:

Mark 13:32: But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

So even Y'shua our adon (master) did not know, but there would be a period of waiting. As I discuss elsewhere we have excellent reason to believe that period is almost up!

Back now to Psalms 110.

Verse 2 tells us that this waiting will continue until HaShem sends the rod of Y'shua's strength out of Zion to rule in the midst of his enemies. There is an important Messianic prophecy referenced here:

Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
11:2 And the spirit of Adonai shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Adonai.

This is the "rod that comes out of the stem of Jesse." This is one of the prophecies accepted by Orthodox Judaism as referring to the Moshiach (See Judaism 101: HERE for confirmation of this -- scroll to the bottom of that page for "Isaiah 11").

We see then that Moshiach will come but then wait until HaShem empowers him, as the rod of Jesse, to defeat his enemies.

What does Master Y'shua do during the Times of the Gentiles (Luke 21:24)? David explains!

Psalms 110:4 Adonai hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

For more on the Order of Melchizedek see my study HERE.

During this waiting period Y'shua has served HaShem as Cohen Gadol (High Priest or Mediator: I Timothy 2:5) of the entire world! This is confirmed at many places in the B'rit Hadashah scriptures (New Testament), for instance:

I Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Y'shua the Anointed;
2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

See that? " be testified in due time." The word testified is marturion and means to present conclusive evidence.

After Y'shua gave himself up on the starous (execution stake) he had to wait to be vindicated, to reveal his exonerating evidence to the world. The world will not see this evidence until the Times of the Gentiles is fulfilled (Luke 21:24) and HaShem exalts His Son and Servant (Psalms 110:1) Y'shua as HaMoshiach (the Messiah).

In the meantime Y'shua has been conducting the affairs of his office as Cohen Gadol as the mediator between God and humanity.

In due time -- once the Times of the Gentiles are fulfilled -- Y'shua will take up the mantle of Moshiach. By HaShem's power he will defeat the enemies of God and His people (Psalm 110:5,6) and he will bless all those who have blessed Israel and curse all who have cursed them (Genesis 12:1-3). Then will Y'shua be vindicated (I Timothy 2:5,6). He will lift up his head in ultimate victory (Psalms 110:7) and proclaim the establishment of the Kingdom of HaShem.

I hope to see you there.

Israel Fires are finally out! Now its time to help the victims....

Just sharing this info:
All emphasis mine

From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team

The tragic Chanukah wildfire that killed more than 40 people near Haifa in northern Israel has finally been put out...but the damage is staggering. Thousands of acres and millions of trees were burned, hundreds of homes were damaged or destroyed, and thousands of people are returning to try to rebuild their lives.

Firefighters and equipment from many other nations joined with the Israelis to put out the largest fire in Israel's history. Those who were forced to evacuate and still have homes to return to are being allowed to go back. At least 250 homes were damaged or completely destroyed. Many of the surviving homes have suffered such so much structural damage that they will have to be torn down rather than rebuilt.

Thousands are facing the loss of everything they owned, and I am asking you today to join with me to send a special gift to help them. So far 350 Jerusalem Prayer Team members have compassionately responded with a gift of love to bring comfort to those left bereaved, homeless and injured by the Chanukah Fire. But we need at least 1,000 to give before I leave for Israel in just 48 hours. While I am in Israel, I will meet with my personal friend the Mayor of Haifa to deliver your gifts of love and comfort to so many hurting people.


"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified." (Isaiah 61:3)

Children have been orphaned, wives have lost husbands, and mothers have lost children. Great numbers of people have lost everything they owned. They need food, water, medical supplies, clothing, cleaning supplies, furniture and so much more. We must stand with them now to help these poor and needy people. We must not turn our eyes away from their need or stop our ears from hearing their desperate cries for help.

In two days, I am going to Israel as your ambassador of hope and comfort during this very difficult time. Your gift today will allow the Jerusalem Prayer Team to meet some of the most urgent needs resulting from this great tragedy. This is an opportunity for us to bring help and comfort to the Chosen People and give them beauty among the ashes of what they have lost. Will you send your gift of love today so that we can show these precious Jewish people God's love?

I am asking every member of the Jerusalem Prayer Team to join me in making a special gift to meet the many urgent needs created by this tragic fire. Please join with me right now in praying a commanded blessing on every loving heart that responds in compassion to this urgent request for help.



Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team makes it possible for us to meet emergency needs for aid like this as well as continue to mobilize believers around the world to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the protection of Israel and meet other vital humanitarian needs among the Chosen People. Thank you for being part of the team.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

Dr. Michael Evans

The latest Noah's Ark Hoax

Every few years someone comes along claiming to have discovered Noah's Ark. Here we go again...

World Net Daily has a good piece on the present one:

If anyone is interested....

I'm 110% convinced that Noah's Ark floated as the Torah says.
Some day it could be found among the mountains of Ararat...

But that day is not today...

Shabbat Shalom and happy Chanukkah!

Man tries to stab Jewish woman to prove he's a good Arab

Man tries to stab Jewish woman to prove he's a good Arab

A 50-year-old man from the eastern Jerusalem village of Issawiya tried to stab a young Jewish woman at the nearby Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital in order to prove to his friends that he is a good Palestinian Arab.

Police said the man followed the young woman for some distance before pulling out a large kitchen knife and running toward her. Fortunately, the young woman reached the guard station at the hospital entrance before her would-be assailant reached her.

After being taken in for questioning, the man admitted that he wanted to kill a Jew in order to prove to his friends that he was not collaborating or sympathizing with Israel.

It is a growing phenomenon that Arabs who would otherwise have little or not problem with Israel and especially with their Jewish neighbors feel pressured to take anti-Israel positions and even engage in terrorist activity.

A New AllFaith Flix! Sexual Assault We Can Believe In

More on Korea...

Some of this is clearly propaganda so "read between the lines"

Tensions on the Korean peninsula: What you need to know

From The LookOut Via Yahoo

Tensions are near the boiling point on the Korean peninsula after North Korea shelled a South Korean island, killing two South Korean soldiers. What's behind this latest spike in hostilities between the longtime adversaries, and just how concerned should we be -- especially since we have 25,000 military personnel stationed in South Korea? Here's what you need to know.

What happened, exactly?

Early Tuesday, North Korea fired artillery shells at the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong, which sits off the disputed maritime border between the two countries. The attack killed two South Korean marines and wounded 18 soldiers and civilians. It prompted an exchange of fire between the two sides, involving around 175 artillery shells and lasting about an hour.

The North accused South Korea of having started the exchange by firing shells inside North Korean territory during a set of South Korean military exercises that the North called "war maneuvers." The South denies that charge, saying that its soldiers were merely conducting military drills and that no shots fell in North Korean territory.

The North Korean attack was the first on a civilian area of South Korea since the Korean War.

Why did this happen now?

Tensions have been running high since March, when a South Korean naval vessel in the same area was sunk, killing 46 sailors. Seoul blamed a North Korean torpedo attack, though the North has denied involvement. Then earlier this month, the South Korean navy fired warning shots at a North Korean fishing boat after the craft strayed across the border. The North Korean boat retreated.

Some analysts have linked Tuesday's action by the North to the impoverished nation's need for food. The Obama administration has refused to remove sanctions against the North, imposed in response to its nuclear program. "They see that they can't pressure Washington, so they've taken South Korea hostage again," Choi Jin-wook, a senior researcher with the South Korean Institute for National Unification, told the New York Times. "They're in a desperate situation, and they want food immediately, not next year."

Does this have anything to do with North Korea's leadership situation?

Kim Jong Il, the North's ailing and reclusive leader, is believed to be gradually shifting power over to his son, Kim Jong Un, who in September was promoted to the rank of four-star general.

Some analysts believe the transition has made North Korea eager to demonstrate its military power. Kim Jong Il famously employed an aggressive "military first" approach to politics, and spoke of turning the North Korean army into a "pillar of the revolution." The regime may now want to show the world that the same military-first policies will prevail under his successor. "The son's power base is derived from the military, and the power of [the] military is greater than ever," Cheong Seong-Chang, a fellow at the Seoul-based Sejong Institute, told Time magazine.

How has the world reacted?

The United States, Britain and Japan have condemned the North Korean attack, with America calling on the North to "halt its belligerent action." China said it was "concerned," while Russia has urged restraint and a peaceful solution to the crisis.

What's the U.S. role in all this?

The United States wants North Korea to resume the six-party talks on the country's nuclear program. The talks, which also include Russia, China, Japan in addition to America and the two Koreas, were launched in 2003, after North Korea opted out of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. The talks' aim is to arrive at a peaceful diplomatic agreement to contain the North's nuclear capacity -- but the talks have been in limbo since 2008, and earlier this week, an American scientist revealed that he had been shown a sophisticated North Korean nuclear enrichment facility, throwing the resumption of the talks into further doubt.

Today's incident adds another obstacle, experts say.

The revelation of the uranium facility and Tuesday's attack on South Korea may both be expressions of the North's concern that the Obama administration and its allies are unlikely to offer concessions such as the easing of sanctions. "I think they realize they can't expect anything from Washington or Seoul for several months, so I think they made the provocation," Choi Jin-wook, senior researcher at the Korea Institute of National Unification, told CNN.

How scared should we be?

South Korea has placed its military on "crisis status," and Prime Minister Lee Myung-bak has reportedly ordered strikes on North Korea's missile base if the North makes any "indication of further provocation." It appears unlikely, though not impossible, that further military action will result.

South Korea does not have an active nuclear weapons program. North Korea is believed already to have eight to 12 nuclear bombs. But nuclear issues aside, any military conflict between the countries could badly destabilize the region, especially if the North Korean government were to collapse -- an outcome that some South Koreans fear could lead to a Chinese takeover.

Ground Zero Imam Threatens All Americans Who Oppose Ground Zero Mosque

Thought this was interesting...

Alan Keyes for President!

Ground Zero Imam Threatens All Americans
Who Oppose Ground Zero Mosque


ALERT: The Ground Zero Mosque Imam - Feisal Rauf - has issued an effectual "fatwah" on the brave 9/11 First Responder, fireman Vincent Forras who is opposing Rauf! And the fatwah goes for anyone else who dares get in the way of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque.

Declaration Alliance Needs You In the Legal Fight NOW

As you know, Declaration Alliance is working with Vincent Forras who has filed a groundbreaking lawsuit to stop the Ground Zero Mosque. The controversial Imam Feisal Rauf has responded with intimidation and insults.

In a recent press conference announcing Rauf's intention to bully Forras into backing down, (by way of a personal lawsuit designed to bankrupt this brave first responder and kill the class action suit we are pursuing), the controversial Imam Feisal Rauf took intimidation one step further -- accusing Forras of bigotry, a mortal insult against Islam.

In accusing injured American Hero Vinnie Forras of bigotry, Rauf is throwing down the gauntlet, challenging Islamist true believers to punish not only Forras but anyone who stands in the way of the Ground Zero Mosque and the Islamization of America. Let us not forget how Feisal Rauf and his colleagues feel about "insulting Islam" -- as Rauf said on CNN, if the GZM is not built, there will be more terrorist violence as a direct consequence!

Declaration Alliance Will Not Be Intimidated!
Select Here To Help Us Win The Fight!

Imam Feisal Rauf has publicly stated his belief that the 9/11 attacks were "justified," and he now apparently believes brave heroes like Vincent Forras have no right to use the American legal system for redress of grievances and suffering of all those who risked their lives in the attacks' aftermath.

None of this is surprising coming from a man who recently published a book in Malaysia titled "A call to prayer from the WTC debris - Islamic Da'wah in the heart of American post 9/11". According to the Qur'an, (Sura 30:25), Da'wah is the call to the dead to rise on the Day of Judgment... those who do not adhere to Sharia law are damned for their sins.

Finally, let me stress again Feisal Rauf's recent ominous interview with CNN's Soledad O'Brien where he stated that more terrorist violence will result if building of the mosque is prevented.

The class action complaint against Feisal Rauf and his Ground Zero "Victory" Mosque are publicly available for review at Declaration Alliance is working with the plaintiffs as a civic advocacy and social welfare organization in conjunction with the public interest legal group, Freedom Watch and attorney Larry Klayman. It is vital that we rapidly pursue this legal action into the "discovery" phase and uncover the shadowy interests and international financial tentacles that are so aggressively pushing to bankroll this monument extolling Islamist supremacy on American hallowed ground.

If everyone who receives this message would sacrifice $100 toward preserving their own freedoms, we could get the word out to enough concerned Americans to make the difference and halt the march of radical Islam and Sharia law in America.

Dry Bones: Balancing Act.

This is so true...
And as went Christian Lebanon, so now is going Europe and the US as the Ummah advances mostly unopposed by the Humanist West.

Balancing Act

Balancing Act

way back in January of 1973, the accepted wisdom was that the future for a democratic Middle East was tied to the fortunes of Christian Lebanon, the secular government of Muslim Turkey, and the Jewish State of Israel : Dry Bones cartoon.

More Christians Attacking Israel and the Jews....

I thought this was worth sharing.

People often accuse me of being too pro-Israel or of harping on the topic too much... Here's a timely reminder that significant segments of the Christian Church are actively standing against Israel and the Jewish people and are supporting the planned genocide of Israel's Jews -- just like during the build up to the Shoah (Holocaust). In this case this includes
a conference of Catholic bishops, Stephen Sizer (a well-known Anglican replacement theologian), the Presbyterian Church (long time opponents of all things Jewish). These are far from lone examples. We either stand with Israel and the Jewish people or we stand against them. The choice is ours.

Genesis 12:1 Now Adonai had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

To all who stand against God's Elect people Adon Y'shua ("Master Jesus") says:

John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team,

Dear John,

I can hardly believe the demonic attacks against Christian Zionists and Israel that are being launched by professing Christians. It makes me understand as Chairman of the Board of the Corrie ten Boom Holocaust Center what Corrie and her family endured...and why my mother was so angry at professing Christians in Germany who would not lift a finger to help her loved ones who were branded like cattle and gassed in Hitler's death camps.

In just the last few days, a conference of Catholic bishops meeting in Rome issued a statement blaming the ongoing dispute between Israel and the Palestinians squarely and solely on Israel. They demanded that Israel withdraw from all "Arab lands conquered in 1967" to allow the Palestinians to "live with dignity." They specifically rejected the Bible promises regarded the Holy Land as applying to the modern nation of Israel. I am appalled!

[This would include surrendering Jerusalem to al ikhwan/Hamas]

Then Stephen Sizer, a well-known Anglican replacement theologian made news promoting his film "With God on Our Side" and his book "Zion's Christian Soldiers." Echoing former President Carter, Sizer called Israel an "apartheid state" and decried the support Israel receives from Christians around the world.

Finally, the Israel/Palestinian Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church voted to "engage in divestment and in an economic and commercial boycott of everything produced by the [Israeli military] occupation." The group called on Christians around the world to stand in solidarity with the Palestinians to "put an end to the existing evil."

I am writing you today because I believe you disagree with these false teachings against the Jewish people...and because I need your help to show the people of Israel that their true Christian friends will stand with them in their time of distress and danger. We are still 140 short of reaching our goal of 1,000 caring friends to make the winter miracle happen by providing warm blankets for elderly Holocaust survivors living in Israel.

Today is the last day to be part of meeting this urgent need. Will you send your generous gift today to help keep these precious people who have suffered so much warm and safe this winter?


Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27. NKJV

God spoke through the prophet Isaiah with a message for each one of us. "Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God." (Isaiah 40:1-3)

Today you and I can fulfill these prophetic words. Today we can show God's love to people living in great need. Today we can speak comforting words to the people of Jerusalem.

When you send your gift of $30 or more to help meet this urgent need, we will send you a Jerusalem Prayer Team 2011 calendar. This calendar features beautiful pictures from the Holy Land, and will be a constant reminder to you to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, you will also receive a lovely full color "Comfort Ye My People" afghan that will be a wonderful reminder of your compassion and love for the Chosen People.


Your ongoing support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team makes it possible for us to stand up for Israel and to encourage believers around the world to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Thank you for saying "yes" to this urgent need.

Your Ambassador to Jerusalem,

Dr. Michael Evans

Baptist and Methodist Communions

A reader asked the following:

What is the difference between the way the Baptist gives the communion and the way the Methodist give Communion?

My reply:
Your thoughts?

Hi Douglas.

The exact mechanics of Communion very slightly congregation by congregation as well as denomination by denomination. For instance some do it every Sunday, some on the first Sunday of the Month, some once a year; some use matza (unleavened bread), some crackers, some leavened bread, some wine, some grape juice... but despite these sorts of differences there are few substantial differences between Methodist and Baptist Communions.

The main differences would be that Methodists practice "open communion" which means that anyone who comes forward for communion is allowed to partake (whether "saved" of not and regardless of denominational affiliation if any -- no one has the right to refuse communion to another and taking it is a blessing for anyone who does partake). Baptists only allow those who are "saved" according to their beliefs/understandings to partake. This plays out in two basic ways:

1. In most Baptist churches one is asked if one has "been saved" before being served, often details will be requested of strangers (where were you saved? when? how?) to confirm that one is really saved. However this is usually handled in the talk leading up to communion with words like, "So if you have received Christ...." Most Methodists emphasize that "whosoever will" may take. Both views can be supported scripturally.

2. Only baptized Believers are allowed to partake among Baptists. This causes another observable difference in that while Methodists perform "infant baptisms" Baptists only do so after a person is old enough to make an intentional request for salvation. Hence little kids partake in Methodist churches while its rare to see someone under 8-12 years old partaking in a Baptist rite. 12 is a common age to "receive Jesus" and begin taking Communion even though children of devout Baptists (like Methodists) grow up under the teachings, Bible stories etc. There is no "First Communion" service (in Catholic terms) among Baptists or Methodists.

Hope this helps,

The "Obama" is encouraging other nations to join forces against Arizona!

ANOTHER Act of Treason!

Also see:
How you can help:

Dear DHFC Supporter,

The outrageous attack on Arizona by President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder continues. But this time, it's worse! The Obama Administration is encouraging other nations to join forces against Arizona. So far, the Ninth Circuit Court has allowed 11 foreign nations, including Mexico, to join the United States' lawsuit against Arizona.

Watching an American president prompt foreign leaders to attack a member of our republic makes me heartsick. But unfortunately, circumventing the people through the courtroom has always been one of the far left's most effective ways to undermine America. Liberal activist judges in California's Ninth Circuit and elsewhere have consistently overruled the people.

So we must act fast. The Freedom Center - specifically our legal wing, the Individual Rights Foundation - is standing with the state of Arizona, and I'm asking you to help us. Our legal team is working on briefs to support Arizona in its right to protect its borders and its citizens. It is truly a David vs. Goliath battle and we need your financial support.

Will you follow this link right away to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to enable our legal team to support Arizona? With your contribution of $25 or more, I will rush you a copy of Breaking the System: Obama's Strategy for Change Today, our new pamphlet revealing the far left's step-by-step plan to bring down capitalism and the American way of life.

Remember, we are not talking about legal immigration. America has long been the single greatest land of opportunity for millions of legal immigrants. But Arizona, like all of our border states, is being overrun by illegal immigrants. And with them has come a huge increase in crime - rampant drug trafficking - and enormous costs born by our taxpayers.

But the radical liberal agenda behind the Open Borders movement doesn't care about these burdens. In fact, it relishes the confusion, fear and economic mayhem the flood of illegal immigrants creates. Its leaders are cheering the interference of American affairs by foreign countries. And our president is actively promoting such disunity, crime and economic misery!

We cannot allow Arizona to fight this battle alone, because Arizona's fight is our fight. That's why I'm asking you to help the Freedom Center fight side by side with Arizona by making the most generous contribution you can afford to support our legal team.

We must make certain Arizona has the best legal advice possible, including the legal team of the Individual Rights Foundation. Our staff understands the motivations and agenda of the radical left, so we are always able to provide counters to attacks others might not see coming. That means we must raise $65,000 over the next 72 hours to keep our legal team working and fighting alongside the people of Arizona.

So please take a moment right now to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can afford to support our legal team's efforts on behalf of Arizona.

Thank you for all you've done for the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Islam Minnesota Style

Thought this might be of some interest.

Katherine Kersten: TiZA vs. the search for truth

The battle over the role of Islam in a Minnesota public school is heating up again in a federal courtroom in St. Paul. The conflict began in January 2009, when the ACLU of Minnesota sued Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy -- a K-8 charter school with campuses in Inver Grove Heights and Blaine -- for violating constitutional prohibitions against government endorsement of religion.

TiZA since has fought tooth and nail -- erecting procedural barriers to prevent the ACLU from investigating what goes on behind its doors. The school's tactics have gone far beyond the usual rough-and-tumble of lawyers in our adversary system. Its chief tool has been attempted intimidation of all who would draw back the curtain on its secrets.

One of TiZA's first targets was the ACLU itself. A few months after the suit began, the school filed a $100,000-plus defamation claim, citing ACLU executive director Chuck Samuelson's simple statement that "[TiZA is] a theocratic school ... as plain as the substantial nose on my face." The court dismissed the claim.

In January 2010, the ACLU was back in court to seek a protective order, on grounds that intimidation by TiZA was discouraging potential witnesses from appearing. The ACLU filed affidavits by a former TiZA parent and a former TiZA staff member, who described what they interpreted as threats of violence against them. In her affidavit, the female staff member said that Asad Zaman -- TiZA's executive director -- had suggested after she displeased him: "We could just kill you, yeah tell your husband we'll do his job for him." (Zaman has no recollection of making such a statement, he said in an affidavit.) The court barred witness harassment or intimidation by either party.

In June 2010, the ACLU returned to court to quash what it described as yet another TiZA attempt to intimidate current and former employees from speaking about what they had seen at the public school. TiZA's "Staff Handbooks include a secrecy clause, and related threat of legal action for violating it," according to the ACLU's court filings. TiZA "wields [these provisions] as a sledgehammer to keep former employees quiet about what they saw at the school." As a result, "former TiZA employees have expressed fear about speaking to the ACLU."

According to the ACLU, TiZA's refusal to agree not to enforce the secrecy clause "sends the ominous signal that current and former employees who talk to the ACLU may be forced to defend themselves against a baseless, expensive lawsuit."

On Oct. 1, Judge Donovan Frank agreed -- affirming an order the ACLU had earlier won barring TiZA from enforcing the confidentiality clause in the context of this litigation.

The court's order and memorandum spoke volumes: "It appears that information related to TiZA's business, finances, operations and office procedures is public data and cannot be kept secret." "The relevant question ... is why TiZA, a public charter school, does not want to allow its former and current employees to participate in the informal discovery process to ascertain the truth about how TiZA operates."

The court's strong language in response to TiZA's actions was unusual: "[I]ntimidation and threats will not sit well with a fact-finder such as a jury."
As a result of the school's actions, "[T]he Court may be required to draw adverse inferences about how TiZA operates as a result of TiZA's efforts to keep information about its operations secret. ... [TiZA's] behavior during the discovery process thus far ... has not been consistent with a good faith search for the truth."

The ACLU has characterized TiZA's recent actions regarding the secrecy clause as "only the last in a long line of intimidation efforts." Not quite. Last month, an attack was launched from a different front.

Several organizations that are not even parties to the lawsuit went to court in an attempt to disqualify the ACLU's lawyers -- Dorsey & Whitney -- from representing the ACLU on grounds that Dorsey personnel had previously communicated with Zaman about entities involved in the litigation. The organizations include the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-MN), MAS-MN Property Holding Corporation and the Minnesota Education Trust (MET).

What might they fear? Perhaps that Dorsey lawyers are in a position to prove that the scandal thus far -- and Zaman's role in it -- is just the tip of the iceberg. Dorsey lawyers had this to say in a Sept. 10 letter filed with the court:

"The ACLU believes Mr. Zaman's testimony relating to control of virtually every significant event at TiZA, MAS-MN, MET and MET's subsidiaries, coupled with his efforts to hide such control, constitute powerful evidence against TiZA's denials that it is a Muslim school and that it funnels state and federal money to other Muslim organizations."

Every time we read about this lawsuit, we have to pinch ourselves and say: We're talking about a public, taxpayer-funded school.

Barry Soetoro Day In Court May Come Yet!

Some of the top legal minds in the country are continuing to seek for a way to preserve our Constitution's requirement that only US citizens (and only natural born US citizens) can be president of this country. Now a new challenge (based on 1. Soetoro (aka Obama) being a British citizen (since he was born in the then-British colony of Kenya) and interestingly 2. that by allowing him to remain in power the Constitution itself is being automatically amended with Congressional tacit support. This is a threat to the very foundation of our formerly Constitutional government.

In my opinion the preeminent legal challenge should be that by becoming a citizen of Indonesia to attend the madrasa (Muslim school) Barry Soetoro forfeited ANY citizenship he may have once held (whether Kenyan, US or British). These are the two main challenges to his presidency (other than his open association with al Ikhwan).

But anyway... the "British citizenship" challenge is scoring a victory that COULD eventually turn into something serious IF Soetoro wins a second term (this probably wont be settled before 2012 in my opinion). So here, unedited, is the report from The United States Justice Foundation:

October 18, 2010

Support the USJF:
United States Justice Foundation
Dept Code 4800
932 D Street Suite 1
Ramona, CA 92065

My Friend of What is Right,

A new court filing that returns the issue of Barack Obama's eligibility to the U. S. Supreme Court warns that unless the judiciary makes a definitive decision in the dispute, it will be the same as allowing the political interests in the United States to amend the U. S. Constitution at will.

A petition for writ of certiorari has been filed with the U. S. Supreme Court from the 3rd U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to uphold the dismissal of a case which alleges that Congress failed to follow the Constitutional mandate which "provides for Congress to fully qualify the candidate 'elected' by the Electoral College Electors."

This means that the U.S. Supreme Court may soon review this case to decide whether to put it on the Court docket. AND, USJF will be filing a brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of this appeal if the Supreme Court accepts the case!

This is a huge win for those who have worked tirelessly to make sure that Mr. Obama's Birth Certificate will finally be produced.

The lawsuit further alleges that "Obama was born a British subject/citizen to a British subject/citizen father and a U.S. citizen mother. Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen and never intended to be one. Obama's father was never even an immigrant to the USA nor was he even a permanent legal resident. Obama's father was a foreign national sojourning in the USA to attend college. Obama is still a British subject/citizen to this day because he has never renounced that citizenship. According to this lawsuit, Obama was born a dual-citizen with dual allegiance and loyalty and is therefore not constitutionally eligible to be the president and commander-in-chief of our military."

As we have proclaimed and proved for over ONE YEAR: "Mr. Barack Hussein Obama is NOT ELIGIBLE to be the President of the United States of America!"

Yet, Mr. Obama continues to NOT prove his American citizenship. He even jokes publically: "I can't spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead." Those are the exact words that he exclaimed to NBC's Brian Williams. Even a reporter from ABC news recently asked one of Mr. Obama's top aides why he does not just provide his long form birth certificate!

Plain and simple: All we want is for him to prove his citizenship by providing a copy of that long-form birth certificate.

Yet, he has so much to hide from the American people!

He has reportedly spent more than $1,900,000.00 on attorneys' fees to literally HIDE his birth records and much more.

On Being "Slain in the Spirit"

Welcome to John of AllFaith's

On Being Slain in the Spirit
Why the People Fall

Another Q & A with John of AllFaith -- 10.18.10

    Questioner: Nihal
    Private: no
    Subject: Why People fall?

      Why some worshipers fall backwards when Pastors lay hands on them to Bless? This act repeats on some without a result/Healing.
      The Bible does not support this fall either.

My Reply:

Hi Nihal,

In the Bible when the Holy Spirit falls on a person they always fall forward in awe and worship not backwards (if they fall). As you say there is no biblical support for the practice commonly referred to as being slain in the Spirit.

In SOME cases the person is gradually placed off balance by the person "laying on hands" by gradual applied pressure during the "prayer" and then pushed gently one last time until they fall or must move to stay on their feet (in which case they are said to be "resisting the Spirit"). You can often see people shuffle to stay on their feet as the initial pressure is applied. Anyone can do this. Its become a popular party trick in some anti-Christian circles.

In SOME cases I have experienced both directly (personally) and indirectly (in others) this phenomenon where no such heretical tricks are used however, where the act appears to be legitimate (and where I am convinced it was) and where the Presence of God (the Ruach HaKodesh) is tangibly present: Both as the person doing the prayers and as the person being prayed for. Whether specifically mentioned in the Bible or not, God does move in this way at times.

Sometimes when we pray for healings and so on the answer is yes, and sometimes it is no. God is our Father and knows best. He at times blesses us even while declining our requests. He is God, not "Santa Claus."

When God bestows a blessing Lucifer often comes from behind and counterfeits it. The same is true with "speaking in tongues." The Bible gives very clear guidelines on this and much of the babel one hears in some churches has nothing to do with the biblical blessing. BUT the blessing does exist and is practiced today.

The best I can tell you is to seek God and His Will for your life. "Signs and wonders" are often deceptive The best I can tell you is to seek God and His Will for your life. "Signs and wonders" are often deceptive (Matthew 12:39).

"The Truth will set you free!
