Attractive Deception - Part 11

Israel - Holy Nation, or Synagogue of Satan?























Tefillin Barbie

Early on in the process of looking for images to illustrate the pages of this book, I came across some photos of a Barbie doll that was wearing the tallit (Jewish prayer shawl), the tefillin on her arm and forehead, and was holding a copy of the Talmud in one hand and a siddur (Jewish prayer book) in the other. The Tefillin Barbie was created by Jen Taylor Friedman, who is a Soferet (a female Jewish scribe). Ms. Friedman decided to dress up a Barbie doll to look like her fellow Soferets. She sells the dolls for $150 each on her Etsy site. You can learn more about the dolls at the following webpage.

Interestingly, the Tefillin Barbie is wearing a t-shirt with the image of a black cat on it. This is because Ms. Friedman purchased the 2006 Halloween Hip Barbie due to its modest denim skirt which is a dress style common among her friends. The depiction of a black cat on the t-shirt was an unintentional byproduct of purchasing a Halloween Barbie. Nevertheless, its presence as a symbol of witchcraft, being the favored pet of witches, speaks of a relationship between rabbinic Judaism and witchcraft that is very real, seldom recognized, and almost never admitted.

The role of a Jewish Scribe, or Sofer, has traditionally been a male occupation. The first female Sofer in the modern era was certified in 2003. Her name is Aviel Barclay. She created a blog to serve as a record of her groundbreaking experiences. At the top of the blog she has the following quotation posted.

"Let us restore the Divine In-Dwelling to Her Place in Zion & infuse Her spirit throughout the whole inhabited world."

This is an obvious reference to the “Divine Feminine,” or goddess worship. The practice of modern Wicca, or witchcraft, is predominately goddess worship. As we observed in the chapter of this writing titled Sabbath Summoning, the rabbinic Jews have incorporated the rites of candle magic and sex magick into their Sabbath rituals as they invite the Sabbath Queen (Shabbat Hamalka) into their homes and souls. It seems fitting, therefore, that this “Tefillin Barbie” should come adorned with a symbol of witchcraft. As much as rabbinic Judaism proclaims that they are children of Abraham and the true guardians and purveyors of the Hebrew religion entrusted to the patriarchs and prophets of the Tanakh, they are in fact apostates who have given themselves to the service of Satan. This was true 2,000 years ago, and it continues to be true today. Because Yahshua confronted the Jewish religious leaders and rebuked them for pretending to be devoted servants of Yahweh when they were in fact full of deceit, Satanic practices, and pride, the orthodox Jews to this day hate and revile the Son of God.

What would your opinion have been of the Priests, Scribes, and Pharisees if you had encountered them 2,000 years ago? If you saw them wearing their religious robes, saying long prayers on the street corners, attending the synagogues regularly, and presenting their sacrifices at the Temple, would you not have concluded that these were the people of God, the descendants of Abraham, and the guardians of the Law entrusted to Moses? This was NOT the view of Christ. He told them plainly, “You are not of God. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father.”

Many Christians would like to believe that they would have judged things rightly, having a view that was in keeping with the Son of God. Yet the experience of this present day reveals that the majority of Evangelical Christians are failing to judge as Christ would judge. Some naively believe the Orthodox Jews in Israel continue to practice the faith of Abraham and Moses. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Orthodox religious system in Israel and elsewhere has developed into a synagogue of Satan. In the book of Revelation Yahshua spoke the following words to the overcoming saints of the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia.

Revelation 2:9
“I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”

Revelation 3:9
“Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews, and are not, but lie - behold, I will make them to come and bow down at your feet, and to know that I have loved you.”

Christ was not declaring that these Jews were illegitimate and not actual descendants of Abraham. What He was saying is that, even though they were Hebrew men and women, they were acting like the children of the devil.

John 8:37-44
“I know that you are Abraham's offspring; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from your father.” They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Yahshua said to them, “If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham. But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do. “You are doing the deeds of your father.” They said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.” Yahshua said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me; for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father.”

The Orthodox Jews who follow rabbinic Judaism, the legacy of the Pharisees of Yahshua’s day, continue to bear a malevolent, devilish hatred of the Son of God. Rabbinic Judaism is rabidly anti-Christian, manifesting a greater hatred for “Yeshu” and His disciples than for any other people or belief system on earth. The Bible reveals the vehement hatred of rabbinic Judaism for Christ and His disciples. Before his conversion, the apostle Paul was a leader among the rabbinic Jews, being trained as a Pharisee in the school of Gamaliel. His violent hatred of Yahshua was exhibited in his actions which had the full endorsement of the Orthodox Jewish leaders and community.

Acts 9:1-2
But Saul (Paul), still breathing threats and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked for letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, that if he found any who were of the Way (Christians), whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

Acts 26:9-11
“So then, I (Paul) thought to myself that I had to do many things hostile to the name of Yahshua of Nazareth. And this is just what I did in Jerusalem; not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons, having received authority from the chief priests, but also when they were being put to death I cast my vote against them. And as I punished them often in all the synagogues, I tried to force them to blaspheme; and being furiously enraged at them, I kept pursuing them even to foreign cities.”

Few Christians outside of Israel today understand the hatred that rabbinic Judaism continues to hold toward them and their Messiah. As was mentioned in a previous chapter, the Orthodox Jews hold the Talmud, which contains the opinions of the Jewish rabbis, in higher esteem than the Tanakh (Old Testament). Passages from the Talmud accuse the Son of God of being a sorcerer and of teaching apostasy. They also describe “Yeshu” as suffering endless torments of being boiled in human excrement because He showed contempt toward the words of the rabbis (sages).

Babylonian Talmud Tractate Sanhedrin - 43a

On the eve of the Passover Yeshu  was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, 'He is going forth to be stoned because he has practiced sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy. Any one who can say anything in his favor, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.' But since nothing was brought forward in his favor he was hanged on the eve of the Passover!  - Ulla retorted: 'Do you suppose that he was one for whom a defense could be made? Was he not a Mesith [enticer], concerning whom Scripture says, Neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him? With Yeshu however it was different, for he was connected with the government [or royalty, i.e., influential].'

Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Gittin - Folio 57a
 
He then went and raised by incantations Yeshu. He asked him: Who is in repute in the other world? He replied: Israel. What about joining them? He replied: Seek their welfare, seek not their harm. Whoever touches them touches the apple of his eye. He said: What is your punishment? He replied: With boiling hot excrement, since a Master has said: Whoever mocks at the words of the Sages is punished with boiling hot excrement. 

Orthodox (Talmudic) Judaism is the prevailing belief system of the Jewish people residing in Israel today. Even those Jews who do not practice a Haredi lifestyle (Haredis are those who reject modern secular culture), are greatly influenced by rabbinic Judaism, believing it to be representative of the authentic Jewish faith. Consequently, they share the view that Yahshua was the bastard son of a Jewish woman who grew up to practice sorcery and teach heresy, being an enemy of the pure religion of the Hebrew people. What does Yahweh say about those who hold such a view of the Son of God.

I John 4:2-3
By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Yahshua Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Yahshua is not from God; and this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

The Orthodox Jews refer to the Son of God as “Yeshu.” This was not the actual name that Christ went by when He walked among them. Yeshu is actually an acrostic. Each letter of this name begins a Hebrew word from a phrase that translates into English as “May his name be blotted out.” Sadly, some Messianic and Hebrew Roots Christians have adopted this name not understanding its derisive origin.

The nation of Israel today is dominated by Orthodox Judaism even as it was 2,000 years ago during the time of Yahshua’s earthly ministry. This leads to the question, “What should Christ’s disciples attitude be toward Israel today?” Many Evangelical Christians boldly affirm that they are “Pro-Israel.” This is especially true among those who are members of the Hebrew Roots Movement. Many Christians blindly support the policies of the Zionist state of Israel which is a creation of the Rothschilds and other Luciferian men and women. Many Christians believe that to support the Israeli people is a commandment of Yahweh, and they make no distinction between Talmudic Jews, secular Jews, or Messianic Jews. Is it truly the will of Yahweh that Christians throw their political, financial, and prayer support behind those who hate His Son, who teach that He was a sorcerer who is now suffering the torment of being boiled in human excrement? What is intended by Yahweh’s following promise to Abraham?

Genesis 12:2-3
I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.

The prophet Zechariah recorded the following words of Yahweh.

Zechariah 2:7-8
“Ho, Zion! Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon.” For thus says Yahweh of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.”

Who is Zion? Is it those who call themselves “Zionists”? I recently listened to an excellent, unusually insightful, and Biblically sound interview. Dr. Michael Bennett, a Christian minister and former host of the Future Quake internet radio program was being interviewed about a major project he has been working on for a number of years while also serving as pastor of a church in Tennessee. Michael Bennett has been laboring on a series of books, all of which are to be published simultaneously. One of the books focuses on the history of Judaism and its “holy wars.” Following are some excerpts from this radio interview. I will begin at a point where Dr. Michael Bennett is asking why we do not hear from American Christian leaders about the true character of Judaism in Israel today.

How come we are not hearing it from our Christian media figures, our well-funded, large organization Christian media figures that are making a windfall from tours where these same gentleman (Orthodox Jews who practice sorcery) are leading the tours - sort of a Disney trip to see an idealized community there, when they do not realize that the people who lead these tours over there, when we are out of earshot, and in the Hebrew press, excoriate us as idolaters and look forward to the day when we will be destroyed? The thing that has disturbed me most about this writing project, as someone who has been a staunch Zionist, and a staunch prophecy buff..., and been hardcore in that direction, is when I read the contempt they give for our Lord and Savior. That is the part in the writing that disturbs me the most - the slanderous words that are said against the Savior of the universe and you and me.

Mr. Bennett then proceeds to give a quote out of his yet unpublished book titled Judaism and Its Holy Wars.

Earlier books on mystical Judaism had been in use, such as the Sefer Yetzirah, since the second century C.E., which according to the Talmud was used by pupils of the esteemed nasi Judah, the very wealthy leader of the Sanhedrin and compiler of the Mishnah, who was well liked by the Roman Emperor, to magically create a calf to eat on the Sabbath, as well as allegedly being responsible for miracles produced by other rabbis of the Tannaitic era. The 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia notes that the Sefer Yetzirah featured magical notions originating from the Babylonians and Egyptians, also with an astrological and gnostic emphasis and that “this work had a greater influence on the development of the Jewish mind than almost any other book after the completion of the Talmud,” while noting the document’s assertion “that the dragon rules over the world,” and “good and evil have no real existence.”

Mr. Bennett then comments on the Kabbalah, once more sharing a quotation from the Jewish Encyclopedia.

“It is necessary to ascertain where and when the Jews became intimately acquainted with the Hindu philosophy, which more than any other exercised an influence on the Zohar (the principle writing of Kabbalah).” They note that Jewish groups in Persia were influenced by the Vedanta school of Hindu philosophers, abstaining from meat, and developing a mystical versus literal interpretation of the Torah, and developed secret writings which formed the basis for the Zohar as a “mystical commentary on the Pentateuch as the Upanishads are the mystical interpretation of the Vedas and other Brahmatic scriptures.” They also note that it was so widely adopted “that it was to be placed on the same level with the Bible,” and that “representatives of Talmudic Judaism began to regard it as a sacred book and to invoke its authority in the decision of ritual questions.” Highly regarded are “its glorification of man, and other principles” which are more in keeping with the spirit of Talmudic Judaism.

Dr. Michael Bennett then shares further about the transformation of Judaism to the apostate Luciferian system in place today.

A turning point in my book was the appearance of rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Akiva took it upon himself to save Judaism after the fall of the Temple, and develop, and basically cement what we begin to see after the exile and the second Temple with the rise of the rabbis supplanting the priests. That was really finished once the temple was destroyed. The Sadducees, which really represented the priests, were wiped out. The Pharisees were the only ones within Judaism who survived that era... Judaism became synonymous with Pharisaism, and the Talmud was intended to... crystalize this oral law, which they said was paramount over the written Law that we had in the Pentateuch, and even Moses and others were in awe of rabbi Akiva who was a more important sage than Moses to Judaism - which is admitted by the Jewish Encyclopedia and other sources, that Akiva is actually more important to Judaism than Moses.

Michael Bennett then switches focus to talk about how a much different conception of Judaism today is foisted upon non-Jews living outside the borders of Israel.

I suggest our listeners look up a principle... called hasbara. It is a requirement for those who have sympathies within Judaism to Zionism, to basically control the reality of those of us whose resources they would like to use. Hasbara is a requirement to control what we’re exposed to, to appeal to our emotions, to appeal to our senses, to appeal to our pride - I am talking about as Christians, using means that would not be what we would consider New Testament virtues of the kingdom of heaven... With the intention to confuse us, and to invoke us into a holy war that has not been ours... I can tell you that my hands are filled with trying to struggle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers in high places, which was the task the church was called to do. To be pulled into lesser wars between men is something that I find no Biblical foundation for whatsoever. I think we need to do some soul-searching... to start with a clean sheet of paper and the Gospel and the teachings of the apostles, and start to really work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.

Mr. Bennett then talks about the false reality presented to Christian tourists who visit the land of Israel.

You mentioned these tours that you would like to go to, and I can understand it. We’ve learned about these places in Sunday School. We have this affinity. We picture the people of Israel like King David, noble figures that desire to seek God and who are surrounded by blood-thirsty beasts. But what really happens on these tours is a very careful dog-and-pony-show to serve nothing more than in most cases a political interest. And religious themes will be brought up if it serves that political interest. I am ready to sign up for another tour if it ends with my Christian brothers and sisters preaching the Gospel of Christ at the Western Wall, like our brothers the apostles in the book of Acts did. And you know what happened to them when they did it, and you know what would happen to us.

Christians in Israel today are fire-bombed by Orthodox Jews. They are killed on occasion. (They are subjected to) extreme vandalism and persecution. Bibles are collected and burned in front of the Knesset and elsewhere in Israel, and you hear nothing about this in the Christian press. There was a movement a number of years ago, I believe it was around 1997, where there was yet another set of laws that was proposed that would expand the penalties against sharing one’s faith in the public, or proselytizing as they call it, sharing with someone to change their faith from Judaism. Originally there was a one year sentence for that and they were going to expand it to five years, including any kind of inducement which would include just giving a Bible or a tract to somebody. They basically said, “We don’t want you over here talking about Jesus. We want your money. We want your political cover, but you are banned from this.”

When this happened, all of these ministries in Israel had a choice to make on what they were going to do. In response to this threat of this advance law... as it turns out, fifty of the major evangelical organizations that go to Israel signed a pledge that they would refuse to allow anybody associated with them or their group at any time to proselytize or share the gospel with anybody while they’re there. I had heard this first mentioned sometime from someone that some people might think may be of dubious motive and you think, “No, that cannot be true.” But, actually I went and did the homework through Christian sources and other major news wires, and they confirmed all of this. The members of Knesset said, “Hey, this is better than a law. We’ve got them to capitulate completely. They are willing to send money and no strings attached, with the restriction of any other type of Christian practice in the area.”

I highly recommend listening to the entire interview. It can be downloaded or listened to online at the following link.

I too have done my own research and verified the profound hatred expressed by Orthodox Jews in Israel toward Christ and those who profess to be His followers. An article in an Israeli newspaper reported the following:

Ultra-Orthodox (Jewish) young men curse and spit at Christian clergymen in the streets of Jerusalem's Old City as a matter of routine...

When Narek Garabedian came to Israel to study in the Armenian Seminary in Jerusalem half a year ago, he did not expect the insults, curses and spitting he would be subjected to daily by ultra-Orthodox Jews in the streets of the Old City.

"When I see an ultra-Orthodox man coming toward me in the street, I always ask myself if he will spit at me," says Narek, a Canadian Armenian, this week. About a month ago, on his way to buy groceries in the Old City, two ultra-Orthodox men spat at him. The spittle did not fall at his feet but on his person...

Other clergymen in the Armenian Church in Jerusalem say they are all victims of harassment, from the senior cardinals to the priesthood students. Mostly they ignore these incidents. When they do complain, the police don't usually find the perpetrators...

A few weeks ago four ultra-Orthodox men spat at clergymen in the funeral procession of Father Alberto of the Armenian Church. "They came in a pack, out of nowhere," said Father Goosan.

As I am writing this an article has been posted on Haaretz about a Christian cemetery being vandalized in Northern Israel. Below the story is a link to an article from a few weeks back regarding
a Christian center being vandalized and set afire. The vandals spray painted phrases denigrating Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah. Such actions are common. They are a natural byproduct of the teaching of the rabbis whose hatred of Yahshua has been preserved for millennia in the Talmud.

If a blind and indiscriminate support of Israel and its people is wrong, then what is the proper attitude that a Christian should have toward the nation and Jews wherever they may be found. The apostles did not leave us to wonder. They provided instruction on this subject. We can glean much from the writings of Paul.

Romans 11:11-15, 25-32
I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous. Now if their transgression be riches for the world and their failure be riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be! But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them. For if their rejection be the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fulness of the Gentiles has come in; and thus all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.”  “And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.” From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God's choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, so these also now have been disobedient, in order that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. For God has shut up all in disobedience that He might show mercy to all.

The salvation of the Jewish people will result in untold spiritual wealth for the world. We should earnestly desire the peace of Jerusalem, understanding that peace will be their portion only when the Prince of Peace rules in the hearts of the Jewish people. As disciples of Christ we should seek the salvation of all men, especially the Jew. Christ commanded His disciples to preach the gospel “In Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth.” This is the order. Salvation came to the Jews first, for Christ was born of Jewish kin. He chose 12 Jewish men to be His disciples and to lay the foundation for His church. The virgin church was born in Jerusalem. The Gentile believers should never view the Jewish people with scorn, or contempt, yet neither should they adopt a false romantic image of the Jews as a righteous people.

Let us be wise and not confuse a desire for the salvation of the Jews with a mandate to blindly support the policies of the Zionist state of Israel, or to embrace as brothers those who not only deny Yahshua as Lord and Savior, but who have proclaimed an undying hatred of Him. Politically, I believe the nations (and Christians) should take a hands-off approach to Israel. When Laban pursued Jacob (whose name was later changed to Israel) Yahweh warned this man in a dream about how to conduct himself before Jacob.

Genesis 31:29
It is in my power to do you harm, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, “Be careful not to speak either good or bad to Jacob.”

The nations who seek Israel’s harm, or the injury of the Jewish people, will bring judgment upon themselves, for Yahweh has covenanted to be their protector. Yet, there is also a danger of seeking to do good on behalf of Israel when Yahweh has not commanded it. Those who seek to be Israel’s provider, protector, or counselor are usurping the position of Yahweh, for Israel alone among the nations are Yahweh’s chosen people. It is no small thing for a man or a nation to seek to usurp the position of God. The prophet Zechariah recorded the following words of the Creator.

Zechariah 12:3
“And it will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured.”

A person can lift a stone either for good or for evil. It is not for the nations to try to lift Israel. Yahweh sent a profound sign in regard to this in the year 2003. On January 31st, 2003, a Friday, the United States attempted to “lift” Israel politically. On this date the U.S. Secretary of State, Colin Powell, spoke before a group of Americans interested in U.S. foreign policy. The following AP article provides the details.

Powell: Bush to be more involved in Israeli-Palestinian conflict
By The Associated Press 2/1/03

WASHINGTON - U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said Friday that President George Bush will become more deeply involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict than he was in his first two years in the White House. 

Powell said that the conflict was the most pressing problem in the Middle East. 

Powell also told the Palestinians that "they cannot get a state by using violence" and warned that they must install a new leadership. 

Appearing before a national conference of Americans interested in U.S. foreign policy, Powell said the administration would resume its pursuit of a settlement now that Israel had concluded its elections. 

He said he had talked by telephone to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who won a new term this week, and that the Bush administration would use the roadmap devised in partnership with the European Union, Russia and the United Nations. 

It aims to create a Palestinian state by the year 2005 carved out of land that Israel has held for more than 35 years... 
[end excerpt]

The very day this article appeared, which was the day after Colin Powell’s declaration that America’s leaders would take up the issue of Israel’s peace and a Palestinian state, the space shuttle Columbia disaster occurred. What many American Christians are unaware of is that on that space shuttle mission was the first Israeli astronaut to fly on an American shuttle mission. In a literal fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy, America attempted to “lift” up Israel and she received a severe injury.

























Mission Patch for STS 107 Columbia Mission

Note on the lower right side of the patch the name “Ramon” next to an image of the Israeli flag. This signified that an Israeli astronaut was aboard the flight. Observe also the seven stars on the left of the patch. These represent the constellation Columba (the dove). Following is an excerpt on the design of the mission patch from the official NASA website.

The constellation Columba (the dove) was chosen to symbolize peace on Earth and the Space Shuttle Columbia. The seven stars also represent the mission crew members and honor the original astronauts who paved the way to make research in space possible. The Israeli flag is adjacent to the name of the payload specialist who is the first person from that country to fly on the Space Shuttle.

America was attempting to bring peace in the Middle East. The nation’s leaders were stretching out their hand to touch the apple of God’s eye, and to usurp His role as the guardian, counselor, and glorifier of His people. Even as the American space program was lifting an Israeli astronaut into space, America’s leaders were proclaiming to Israel that they would lift her up, watch over her, and protect her, if only they would put their trust in American policies. America was promising peace, but she was not able to bring peace.



















Columba

Jeremiah 8:11
“They heal the brokenness of the daughter of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ But there is no peace.”

Is this not what has been testified in this chapter? Israel will not know peace until the Prince of Peace rules in her midst. As long as the people of Israel reject their Messiah, they will be beset with enemies and undergo many trials and much injury. It is a manifestation of great arrogance for any nation to promise Israel peace when she has not first made peace with her Savior.

The space shuttle Columbia disintegrated as it was attempting to re-enter the atmosphere. A piece of foam had broken loose from one of the rocket tanks during lift off and had struck one of the small heat shields on the surface of the shuttle. The dislodged heat shield allowed enormous heat to penetrate the skin of the shuttle leading to a fire and explosion. It was a rebuke to the hubris of man that its greatest piece of technology was destroyed by a piece of foam.

There was much more to the event, however. The space shuttle disintegrated over Palestine, Texas. The first piece of debris was found near the town of Palestine. Following is an image published by the Associated Press on this disaster.



















Here is another image.



















The message from heaven is clear. “Do not touch My anointed. Do not usurp My role as the lifter of Israel. Israel will not know peace until she knows the Prince of Peace. Israel will be as a heavy stone to all who attempt to lift her. All who do so will be severely injured.” In the Old Testament do we not read that Yahweh chastised Israel every time she turned to the arm of the flesh for help?

Ezekiel 29:6-7
“All the inhabitants of Egypt will know that I am Yahweh, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel. When they took hold of you by your hand, you broke, and tore all their shoulders; and when they leaned on you, you broke, and paralyzed all of their thighs.”

If it is a grievous error for the nations to seek to fulfill a role only Yahweh can provide for Israel, is it not also error for Christians to stretch out their hands for good or for evil toward this nation? If Yahweh has not commanded it, it should not be done. Should the disciples of Christ support those who are anti-Christ, or lend their political support to the Zionist nation founded by the Rothschild’s and their ilk? Let me put it this way. If a group of witches came to your church and asked for your financial support and prayers, would you give it to them? Would it make a difference if these practitioners of Satanic arts were all Jewish? Would their Hebrew heritage make them acceptable in Yahweh’s sight? No! You might well pray for their salvation, but it would be great folly to give them your money and to endorse their actions.



















Barbie Reads the Torah

I am persuaded that it was no accident that this Tefillin Barbie created by a Talmudic Jewess is adorned with a black cat symbolic of witchcraft. Even as we have seen that the Tefillin worn on the forehead bears the Hebrew letter Shin, and the knot at the back of the head figures the Dalet, spelling the Hebrew word for “demon,” so too we are met with another testimony of the Satanic influence that predominates Orthodox Judaism.

If it is an evil thing for Christians to imitate the works of darkness, then it is equally evil for Christians to support those who perform such works. Let us walk wisely in this world. By all means, pray for the salvation of the Jewish people. Pray that they might recognize their Messiah whom they have scorned. But do not buy into the lie that you must be Pro-Israel, or must imitate apostate Judaism, to find favor with Yahweh.
