Watch the postwar film created so that Germans could learn the truth:
If Mayans were good at predicting the future, there’d be Mayans.
Recently, Israel endured weeks of increased rocket fire from Gaza, and anti-tank fire against a jeep routinely patrolling Israel’s side of the fence. A Hamas rocket landed on a home in Kiryat Malachi, killing 3 Israelis. Israel suffered like this for weeks before responding with surgical attacks against Hamas launch sites and operatives in Gaza. At no point has Israel responded by carpet bombing residential areas in Gaza.
Whenever this sort of thing occurs, Israel claims self defense, while Hamas and their sympathizers claim that Israel’s military actions are illegal. Hamas and their sympathizers claim that it is moral for them to bomb Israeli civilians, but immoral for Israel to attack Hamas militants.
The argument normally goes like this:
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Israel’s existence is illegal.”
Answer: “No. The State of Israel was ratified by a legal vote of the United Nations in 1947.”
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “The UN vote was wrong, because the Holocaust never happened.”
Answer: “Everyone knows that the Holocaust happened. The USA and Britain sacrificed their young men to fight against Hitler and end the Holocaust. The German record books of death camps have been opened to the public.”
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “No! The Holocaust is a huge lie perpetrated by America, the Jews, and the Zionist Entity!”
Answer: OK, now you sound like an idiot. The Holocaust is undeniable.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “End the occupation of Gaza!”
Answer: Israel ended the occupation in 2005 and relocated hundreds of Jewish families out of there.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “End the occupation of Gaza!”
Answer: Even Hamas admitted that the Israeli occupation has ended.
“In 2012, the co-founder of Hamas, Rahul, stated that Gaza was no longer occupied.”
“‘Against whom could we demonstrate in the Gaza Strip? When Gaza was occupied, that model was applicable,’ Zahar said.” Retrieved from Ma’an News Agency, January 5, 2012
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Well, then stop the blockade of Gaza.”
Answer: International Law permits a naval blockade when necessary to protect people from those trying to kill them. The blockade began when Hamas took power in 2007. Either vote Hamas out of office in Gaza, or change the Hamas Charter which says “destroy Israel.”
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “Israel deserves to be destroyed! They stole the land!”
Answer: It was never your land. It was under Ottoman rule from about 1500 until 1917, and then under British rule from 1917 to 1947. Your people were allowed to live on the land, but the land did not belong to you. You had no sovereign government of your own.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But, my grandparents had land.”
Answer: Only by Turkish and British permission. But they also allowed Jews to have land, so this is irrelevant.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “The Turks and the British were obligated to allow Arabs to have land, because it is rightfully Arab land.”
Answer: No one managed to convince the Turks or the British to forbid the Jews from living on the land. These empires allowed it, and no one could say otherwise. At any rate, the Ottoman Turks are gone now (WWI), same with the British as custodians of the Land (WWII); therefore what those empires allowed in their day has since bowed to the UN vote of 1947, a Jewish homeland.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “The land belongs to Mohammed and the Jews cannot have one inch of it.”
Answer: Sorry, but the majority of the world disagrees with you. As was seen in the UN vote of 1947.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But Israel forces Gazans to live in that jail, suffering, with no food and water.”
Answer: Gaza also shares a border with Egypt; so it’s not Israel’s responsibility alone. Israel transfers truckloads of food, supplies, toys, etc. every day. Israel supplies electricity and gas to Gaza even though Gaza shows no appreciation. There is actually no humanitarian crisis in Gaza despite statements to the contrary.
It’s true that the Arab states voted against the establishment of a Jewish Homeland as a bloc, so therefore the Arab states do not like the results of the vote; this however, does not make the vote illegal, nor does it render the State of Israel illegal. It’s time for the Arab states to cut their losses and stop being crybabies. Arab states lost the vote in 1947. It’s time you accept that fact instead of carrying on with this non-acceptance of the UN vote.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “We will never accept the UN vote. Israel must die.”
Answer: Military actions taken against a member state of the UN are illegal. It is the illegal existence of Hamas that must end, the UN member state known as Israel is quite legal according to International Law.
PA/Hamas sympathizers: “But the international community is wrong. The whole world needs to accept Sharia Law, which states that a Jewish state cannot exist.”
Answer: We think not. That is the root of our disagreement right there.
And, you’ve just switched from a political argument to a religious argument.
To give a religious answer: Sura 5:21 of the Koran/Quran states that Israel is the land for the Jewish people.
“Prof. Khaleel Mohammed, Islamic Law scholar of the San Diego State University, noted that Sura 5 verse 21 of the Qur’an, and the medieval exegetes of the Qur’an, say that Israel belongs to the Jews.”

“Lifting up the Name of Yeshua
in Israel and in the Nations”
Messiah is the Lamb that was slain (1 Cor 5:7) to keep the death angel away: Worthy is the Lamb!
1 Cor 5:8 clearly writes to the Church: “Therefore let us keep the [Passover] Feast…” Going leaven-free for one week is also a metaphor for removing sin from our lives – according to the entire Chapter 5 of 1 Corinthians.
So, to summarize the dates:
• Passover begins just before sunset on the 14th of the First Month (April 5, 2012).
• That’s the time to have the Seder meal, including Unleavened Bread, since the 15h of Aviv starts at sunset and is the First Day of Unleavened Bread.
• Feast of Unleavened Bread (FULB) lasts 7 days: from sunset April 5 til April 12 at sunset.
• The last day is a High Shabbat.
Purge out from you the old leaven, that you may be a new mass, as you are unleavened. For our Passover is the Mashiyach, who was slain for us. Therefore let us celebrate the Festival, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of wickedness and bitterness, but with the leaven of purity and sanctity. I wrote to you by letter, not to mingle with sexual sinners. But I say not, with the sexual sinners who are in the world… that you don’t mix, if anyone is called a brother and is a sexual sinner, or avaricious, or an idol-worshipper, or a charlatan, or a drunkard, or rapacious, with him who is such, not even to eat bread… and remove you the wickedness from among you. (1 Corinthians 5:7-13 AENT)

“And there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars. And on earth, distress of the nations and confusion from the roaring of the sound of the sea. and upheaval that casts out life from men, because of fear of what is about to come upon the earth. And the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man who will come in the clouds with much power and great glory. But when these things begin to happen, have courage and lift up your heads, because your salvation draws near.” (Luke 21:25-28 AENT).
This might seem like freaky stuff here. But there’s hope: Here, Yeshua the Messiah has foretold that we can know what is happening certain signs. Of course, only followers and disciples of Yeshua would bother to pay any attention to His words. But people have been benefiting from Yeshua’s words for many centuries.

The increase in earthquakes over the past 50 years or so is just the beginning. I believe that there are some very good reasons why they will increase, and it’s all under control of YHWH the Creator who said way in advance that He will do these things. The following passage describes what happens in the near future when people figure out that earthquakes are coming:
“And the kings of the earth, and the nobles, and the captains of thousands, and the rich men, and the men of valor, and every servant and free man hid themselves in caves, and in the clefts of the mountains; and they said to the mountains and to the clefts, ‘Fall over us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?'” (Revelation 6:15-17 AENT).
Can the Creator make earthquakes? Well, if He’s the Creator, the answer is self-evident: He can do whatever he pleases. If your curiosity is piqued, leave a message or find some way to start your search for the Truth. I recommend the Bible, from cover to cover. Pick up a great one here and here.
May the Creator bless your path with light.

On June 15, 2011, there will be a full lunar eclipse visible only in Israel, parts of Africa, and the Middle East, as well as parts of Asia and Australia; but VERY well seen in Israel, AND visible in the night sky for a longer period of time than normal. Arguably, this bit of info is quite significant, depending upon what you know about prophecy, eschatology, and current world events. Let’s check into it a bit further:
A full lunar eclipse is a bit rare. It’s called a blood moon because only the infra-red band of light gets around the earth and bounces off the moon to be seen by us, only in certain places on the globe depending on the angle. What’s even more rare is when 4 of these blood moons happen in a row.
(Additional background about moon signs here).
What’s even more rare is when all four of these consecutive blood moons occur on YHWH’s Feast Days, commonly and erroneously known as Jewish Festivals. (In the Bible, the Feasts are called “The Feasts of YHWH,” never “Jewish Feasts”).
So, four consecutive blood moons, all occurring on Feasts of YHWH. And that’s what is going to happen in 2014 and 2015. Meaning,
Israel will see the world will witness full lunar eclipses on Passover 2014, Tabernacles 2014, Passover 2015, and Tabernacles 2015.
Ok, back up a little, and let’s get a few questions out of the way:
“Does YHWH use the moon for signs?”
Yes: Genesis 1:14, Luke 21:25.
“Are Feasts relevant to YHWH, and related to the moon?”
Yes: Leviticus 23.
“Are blood-red moons prophetic in Scripture?”
Yes: Joel 2:10,31; Acts 2:20; Rev. 6:12.
Update: I just received a photo of the June 15 eclipse so I’ll insert it below:

Additional notes and figures, from:
“The last Jewish Tetrad happens to be bracketed perfectly by two central lunar eclipses which naturally define both a seven year period according to Daniel 9 and a seventy year period according to Luke 21:32, and Psalms 90:10.
“And as a final note ALL of the eclipses that fall on high holidays, happen to be visible from Jerusalem.”
Time line (Luke 21:32, Psalms 90:10, Dan 9)
1948 + 70 years = 2018
1968 + 50 years = 2018
2011 + 7 years =2018
Time line (Daniel 9)
June 2011 + (2520 Days + 30 Days + 45 Days) = July 2018
More figures below, from:
“June 15 2011(Blood moon) to July 23 2018 is 2595 days (1260 + 1335 days given to us in the Book of Daniel) and just 4 days later is July 27 2018 (Blood moon) a total of 2599 days.”
“My hand is opening an extraordinary door, leading to something glorious that I’ve kept specifically for this generation. The marketplace will be shaken and my Spirit shall cause wells to spring up in places least expected.
“On Tuesday, I require all of My warriors to shut their mouths.” Wow! A silent day? Impossible. But then He proceeded, “I want to hear NO COMPLAINING or negative words proceeding from their mouths on Tuesday specifically.”
“Then those who feared the Lord SPOKE TO ONE ANOTHER…..AND THE LORD LISTENED….AND HEARD THEM; SO A BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE WAS WRITTEN BEFORE HIM FOR THEM THAT FEARED THE LORD, AND THAT THOUGHT UPON HIS NAME.” The word “spoke” in Hebrew is Dabar which means to “commune, command, declare, pronounce and subdue.” The word “thought” is Chashab which means, “to value and weave.” YES!!!!
