Calm Before the Storm?

Posted by lamarzulli on April 30, 2010

My friend Steve Mc Henry – who comments regularly on this BLOG – wrote me yesterday saying, “that everything was just way to calm, what’s up?” As with any major conflict the aggressor waits until he believes he has attained the upper hand, the military advantage that will make his nations campaign a success. The current situation that I believe is brewing in the Middle East is no different. Kings go to war in the spring and what we see is a jockeying for position, in the Middle East. We hear of SCUD II missiles being shipped to Hezbollah. We hear the vitriol and saber-rattling between Syria and Israel, Iran and Israel, Turkey and Israel. The we have the Jordanian King Abdullah warning that unless a two state solution is reached there will be a regional war. The Israeli’s have stepped up their program of issuing gas-masks to all 6 million citizens, a task that was initially slated to happen in a years time. The winds of war are blowing. Now there is talk, coming from The Quartet, that Israel may be forced into going back to its pre 1967 borders. Of course this is dividing the land, and I would draw your attention to the fact that this pre 67 border deal would include Jerusalem. This week on Acceleration Radio my guest was David Brennan who discussed the catastrophes that followed in the wake of the quartet’s meddling with Israel’s borders. Is this happenstance? We will continue to watch and see what develops in regard to these startling “coincidences.”  There is no doubt that the vitriol against Israel is reaching a fever pitch. Iran continues her march toward becoming a nuclear power and the so-called free world does nothing to stop her from reaching her goal. The reason I bring this up is because Iran poses an existential threat to Israel. There is no denying the caustic remarks from Iranian president Ahmadinejad. He has repeatedly remarked that Israel should be wiped off the map. Now, he has threatened to detonate what I assume are dirty nukes, embedded in US cities, if Iran is attacked. As I have mentioned before, this is right out of P.P.&S. There is a calm at the moment. No one really want to go to war, despite all the blustering and posturing on both sides. However, it would appear that the region is headed toward that day when something tips the scales and the war begins. There some of you who say that modern Israel is the Synagogue of Satan. This position is what I believe, a ploy from the enemy himself. I have asked Dr. Stephen Yulish to write an article addressing this. It is posted in this months News Magazine, but I have reposted it here as I think it nails down the rising anti-Semitism and wrong theology that is creeping into the church. Unless we understand that Israel and the church are two different entities, we will never begin to make sense out of the prophetic word….

The Synagogue of Satan concept is the real anti-Semitism

By Stephen Yulish PhD

“…the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not but are a synagogue of Satan’ Revelation 2:9

“I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not but lie” Revelation 3:9

I was asked by the editor of this newsletter, Mr. Marzulli to write about this concept of the synagogue of Satan as it relates to issues of anti-Semitism. A lot of people, some of them Christians, believe from these passages that all Jews are the synagogue of Satan and thus they are evil fueling much of modern anti-Semitism. The bottom line is that these Biblical passages clearly state that the synagogue of Satan are not Jews and to say so is a blasphemy and those who say so are liars. This lie of Satan has caused much harm to Jews over the centuries. Jerry Golden, a Messianic Jew who lives in Israel agrees with me and sees how these Scriptures are often misused to persecute Jews. They result in anti-Semitism. At the least, these scriptures have erroneously been used to explain that modern day Jews including modern Israelites are not the same as Biblical Israelites.

Who misuses these scriptures in this way? Hitler and the Arabs used them as do some Christians like Texe Mars. Satan hates God and His chosen people the Jews. They gave us the Temple service and the Torah and the Prophets and even the Messiah and His Apostles. Satan tried for millennium to destroy the Messianic birth line to prevent the birth of Christ. When he failed, he still has tried to destroy the Jews and Israel because this is where Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem to rule and reign for 1000 years from a rebuilt Temple. He is not returning to Rome or New York or Salt Lake City but to Jerusalem. How then could Jews be the synagogue of Satan? They are God’s people. This misreading is a great lie of Satan’s anti-Semitism and it continues to this day.

I looked up Synagogue of Satan on the internet and it was described as “the secret history of evil conspirators responsible for all wars and financial debacles”. They were called the Jewish Illuminati and were the source of the world’s problems. This is why most Jews including me shun conspiracy theories because they usually blame us. One source even stated that “the media continues to prop up stories of alleged Jewish suffering (holocaust) to divert attention away from their own oppressive activities.” That is horrible.

Texe Mars, the supposed Christian author made a big deal about the synagogue of Satan motif and he even called the Star of David a star of Moloch and of Satan and said that modern day Jews are not Biblical Israelites.

These Jews were also linked to the Jesuits, the Bilderbergers and the Council of Foreign Relations. Remember these are not Jews as Jesus said to the churches at Smyrna and Philadelphia above. Thus the Synagogue of Satan is not made up of Jews a normal reading of the above scriptures shows.

Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam also erroneously speaks of Jews as the Synagogue of Satan. The Southern Poverty Law Center speaks of this concept as the root of much modern anti-Semitism especially among “radical traditionalists”. Ashamed Mohammed and his radical group TEI also speaks of Jews as the synagogue of Satan. This concept is compared by Jews to the infamous “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” anti Semitic propaganda of a century before.

Many people call themselves Jews today and are not including so called Lost Tribes of Israel and some Messianics. I would not call them the synagogue of Satan but they are misled. Some call themselves British Israelites after Herbert Armstrong and others who claim that the kings of England were Jews. I have known some people who claim to be Jews and were not and often spread lies about Jews. At the least they profited from classes on Jews that they knew little about. Others call themselves rabbis who never went to rabbinical school and are just Christians but want to be called rabbis like Jesus. This really turns Jews off as it did me at one time.

The people who really bother me are the racists and bigots and anti-Semites who continue to blame the Jews for all wars and financial debacles in the guise that they are not Biblical Jews and are instead the synagogue of Satan even though Jesus clearly said that there not Jews. You could see why Jesus called them liars and blasphemers who attack Jews erroneously as the “synagogue of Satan. God have mercy on their souls.

    Here’s alittle uncalm. Obama’s sending help to southeast gulf coast including SWAT to the sunken oil rig area to help with the clean up. Why on earth would they be sending SWAT to a oil rig that has mysteriously exploded. It was producing oil. They were drilling for it. 11 are missing.

    Disaster bigger than Valdez, oil will not be stopped for weeks maybe months. Will have disastrous effect on economy and the environment.

      LA,
      “THE BRIEF TIME OF TRANSITION we have been in in the lst decade is about over!”

      The offshore well had drilled to a record setting depth of 35,000 ft. the safety equipment to protect from spills, was blown out by the intense pressure from the depths within the earth. Timing is critical! Perhaps this is Not a good time to drill this deep near the equator considering all that is happening to the earth right now ie bulging around the equator of 26 miles, convergence of planets and ncreased gravitational pulls from planets near, etc! Also happened on or near “Earth Day!” Could be a ‘false flag event or one to make a statement–who knows, but God?
      May God’s will be done accordint to His plan! God is in Control. Our hope is in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who is the hope of our world and its people!

  2. Wow! Great stuff. Thanks Lynn. Very insightful article by Dr. Yulish. He sums it up well. So-called “Replacement Theology” has many sub-categories and all of them are rotten to the core.

    I found it interesting that Dr. Yulish mentions Texe Marrs. He is one of the biggest dispensers of anti-semitism in the Christian Church, in my opinion. I recently friended him on Facebook mainly so I could see what new conspiracy he was coming up with. He is definitely on the fringe.

    • Late Night Lisa said

      I have one book by Texe Marrs “Mysterious Monuments” that I really like. It clearly
      depicts how the occult supernatural is expressed
      visibly on earth though art & architecture.

      In that regard I think he’s definitely onto something but I had no idea about his propensity for anti-Semitism. Not good.

    • Yes I have a couple of books by him in my library as well. However keep in mind that he is very conspiritorial, and inevitably it seems extremes in that area point to the Jews as Dr. Yulish points out in his article.

      He is very big in the whole “synagogue of satan” mentality with regard to modern Israel and the Jewish people.

    • It’s the wolves in sheep’s clothing that we have to watch out for. When I was a new Christian, I fell for the teaching of Pastor Arnold Murray of the Shepherd’s Chapel. It took me a couple of years before I had actually studied enough to distinguish the Truth from a lie. We have to use discernment in everything. I have found this out the hard way.

    • Frank said

      That’s the problem with Murray, i too was a fan of his a long time ago. i know one of his big beefs is with the rapture and Kenites (sp?). What I liked was that he got real deep into the word, but sadly I think some of his conclusions are wrong.

      guess now i gotta do it myself.

    • Frank, do you remember his teaching on murderers obtaining salvation? He said that the only way a murderer could be assured of salvation was to stand face to face with his victim in heaven, and they would decide whether the murderer should be saved or not. That never felt quite right to me, but he was such an engaging teacher that I fell in to his trap.

    • Frank said

      that sounds vaguely familiar. i remember a few bits and pieces. Mostly his disdain for the rapture, and for always talking about “kenites”.

      Speaking of serpent seed fans, anyone hear the most recent Future Quake? I was interested in listening to her until i found she believed in the serpent seed lie.

      anyways.

    • Frank, are you referring to Dr. Joy Jeffries Pugh?

    • Frank said

      indeed i am sir.

      methinks she needs to get back into the word and really read it.

    • Frank said

      she had a few interesting points, but most of it seemed based on conjecture and extraBiblical documents without references cited.

    • Joe.b said

      My brother watches Arnold Murray and thinks alot of him. I watched a few times with him and didn’t really agree with mr Murray abd tried to explain to my brother how I believed mr Murray was stretching things and not teaching exactly what the bible says but the conversation didn’t go well.

    • You couldn’t say anything bad about “Pastor” Murray when I was caught up in it either. I was almost militant in my support of him. It takes prayer and patience. He’ll come out of it if he gets exposed to enough Truth.

    • LisaUK said

      LNL, I heard Texe Marrs is an anti-semite, but I wonder if it’s really true.

      I have been called an anti-semite and I am not an anti-semite.

      I have not listened to Texe or read his books, so it’s possible he is. But, now I think I will check him out to see if he is or not. It could be that he is onto the truth about the zionists (that some unfortunately label as ‘Jews’, when that is incorrect and muddies the truth, imo).

      Anyway, I’m going to check him out and see.

    Dear Dr. Lynn:

    Thank you so much for having Stephen Yulish, PhD comment on such a very, very important piece of information for the church. I see this misunderstanging here in some of the blog writers interactions and on other blogs as well. Sometimes the wrong information is taught and we get confused and this is another way the enemy brings division to the body and our inability to stand against him unitedly, as we end up fighting each other with wrong beliefs. We just need to read the Word and it is plain. If we truly have the Holy Spirit, we will understand. The erroneous beliefs of some christians can be harmful to the church. It is imperative that we understand who we are as the church and what our purpose is for. We are not now the new spiritual Israel and never will be. The Jews are the Jews and they are Gods chosen people forever. We have been grafted in and must not forget that, as the Lord will graft the jews back in as well. Good teaching is so essential regarding the true doctrines of the church and what God’s word says. Thank you again Dr. Lynn and perhaps you can occasionally have more of this type of teaching articles posted to help people who may be having confusing views of the church, the jews, the end time, etc. I really appreciate your understanding of who we are, where we are and where we are headed. God bless. Amen

    • Carl Pinette said

      The two quotes of scripture in my opinion are talking about Jews who do not follow God they are like the Synagogue of Satan. Basically, like Christians who say they are Christians outwardly but are as ravening wolves underneath. Like when Jesus said, “You are the children of your father, the Devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires. From the very beginning he was a murderer and has never been on the side of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies.” (John 8: 44) I think these are two good indicators that there are Jews, Christians and others who act like the devil.

    • Carl Pinette said

      Found this video by Mike Heiser explaining what is meant by serpent seed. Nachash.

    Just like Jesus said, the end is coming like a flood. Who would have thought 18 months ago that the relationship between the US and Israel would deteriorate to the level it is now. Despite all the rhetoric the White House says about the ‘unshakable’ alliance between the two nations, Amerika is quickly abandoning God’s people and nation of Israel.

    Talk is cheap, actions are what matter.

    Here is an excerpt from our current headlines that describes the bullying attitude that our current Administration has toward the nation and people of Israel. Here are quotes from Martin Indyk, a former U.S. ambassador to Israel and currently a top advisor in the Obama administration:
    “The shift in America’s Middle East interests means that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu must make a choice: Take on the president of the United States, or take on his right wing,” said Indyk, who today is Vice President for Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution in Washington and remains a top advisor to US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “
    “If Israel is a superpower and does not need $3 billion in military assistance and the protection of the US, and the efforts of the US to isolate and pressure Iran, than go ahead and do what you like. If you need the US then you need to take American interests into account,” said Indyk.
    This is brazen blackmail, plain and simple. Also note that this is an either-or choice, clearly implying that the Obama administration and the ‘right wing’ in America are polar opposites. I think that’s been made perfectly clear already.
    Folks, a showdown is coming between the U.S. and Israel. The U.S. is leading the charge in attempting to get Israel to divide God’s land. This is the very reason why God tells us He brings the nations into judgment in the valley of Meggido.
    I’ve got news for our godless leaders in Washington too – God wins. Please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and ask God to continue to give Netanyahu and his government the courage to stand up against our godless leaders in Washington. And, of course, pray for our leaders in Washington that God would save some and bring them to the knowledge of the truth in Christ Jesus, that they would see the error of their ways and repent.
    Finally, stand for Israel. Proclaim it boldly to those you know. Tell them that you stand with Israel. Consider sending an email or letter to PM Netanyahu expressing your support, you can do that here:

    Even worse, are those who call themselves ‘Christian’ and yet spew hatred for His chosen people, the JEWS. As a Christian, I have an uncanny love and adoration for the Jewish people. Are they always right? No. Are there some that are corrupt? Of course, just like every ethnic group. But neither of those change the fact that they are God’s covenant people.

    • Janet in Israel said

      Absolutely Bill.
      We are called to love the Jewish people UNCONDITIONALLY as a witness of Messiah who died for THEM first, and THEN the Gentile.

      I too am appaulled that so much anti-Israeli/Jew sentiment is coming from the church…Sheep verses Goats.

    Our President is an enemy of God. He stands agains Christians and against Israel! He is carving up Jerusalem and thus, Israel.
    Barry Sotora, BHO represents us to the nations of the world. The ‘written word’ of God, The Holy Bible, is very clear on what happens to nations whose leaders do this! None of these same nations who mess with and attempt to change the Boundaries God has Himself set for Israel and Jerusalem, HIS HOLY CITY, has lasted. They have gone down into dust and are discarded into the trash heaps of history!
    America, where is your cry out for Israel NOW? Christians of the true Church of God should be shouting from the rooftops! “For as goes Israel, so goes America!”

    Many are ‘christians’ in name only and many are ‘jews’ in name only and have turned from God. Just as in the days of Jesus, some in leadership are ‘selfserving, and serve themselves and their own fleshly pride, not a Holy and righteous God who requires faith and obedience because they love Him and follow his commandments. Even some international bankers and are in the brotherhoood of darkness say their are of Jewish bloodlines!

    • Cathy In WY said

      Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama, is agressively pusing forward a continuation of Bush’s ‘ROADMAP FOR PEACE.’
      Read teh documents and find out proposals are on the table to ‘carve up Jerusalem. Read the Bible references regarding Israel and Jeruslaem’s boundaries as set by God. It’s all there, not opinion!
      Wilson, I charge you to ask yourself, “WHO is so quick to judge?”

    • wilson said

      Does it please you to use the middle name Hussein so deliciously?

      Only God can judge the hearts of man. Things only “seem” to us. I ask you to wait for a year to see if Jerusalem is truely carved up. If it is not it was only another conspiracy theory.

    • LisaUK said

      Wilson,

      We are to judge rightly. Righteously.

      Yeshua told us we would know the enemy by their fruits.

      I don’t see any fruit of the Holy Spirit from Barack Hussein Obama.

      Why did you say ‘deliciously’, as if to imply Cathy is being devilish and evil in her statement?

      Barak is a middle eastern name and Cathy used his whole name. What is your point? Except that is seems to me that you expose your own conditioning as regards ‘arab’ names, in your reaction to Cathy where you are implying she is being politically incorrect to ‘point out his middle name’. Please. I seriously question the spirit behind your statements.

      Yah ultimately chooses those who are in authority. But that does not mean they are ‘Godly’ men. Yah also uses wicked people as He sees fit. He can use a wicked ‘king’ any way He desires to use him – as a battle axe, or turn his heart to do something benevolent (against the nature of the wicked king).

      Where is the source of your discernment, Wilson?

    • wilson said

      Lisa in UK…(I do enjoy your posts by the way.)

      I seek the spirit of Daniel. Nebachadazzar was not a nice guy but Daniel did not hate him, draw posters of him as the joker, lie on him and seek that others kill him and his whole family. People use the names “Barry” & “Hussein” as a code word here in the U.S. I don’t know if they do that in the UK or not.

      He looks to me no different than any other President. He’s done some good things. I have heard the foulest things about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Dr. Martin Luther King. Thomas Jefferson I heard was a Nogstic and owned slaves and had children by his own slaves. George Washington was hyper sensative about his image and wasn’t really a Christian person. Dr. King I heard had several affairs…I don’t know how true any of that stuff is but I think they were great men and history has not written the story of “Barry” yet and people already hate him with a passion the way they hated Bush, Clinton and Reagan. I don’t think any of these people were evil men. They may have been prisioners of their times and the pressures of their office…but evil? anti-christs (each was accused of that)…I don’t see it. I seek the spirit of Daniel…Daniel loved the king and sought to show him a path to God.

      All this roumour, conspiracy and vitriol…it is not God’s way.

    • sandra said

      Wilson, I see eye to eye with you on this topic. Ive said before that I didnt vote for Obama, but it hurts me in my spirit the way all this crazy talk goes around and around, I felt the same way about Bush, who I did vote for, he (as far as Im concerned got us into a terrible mess) was still a good man, and I dont care who likes it or not. People do call him others names disparagingly meant, and if they deny the meaning of it then I think they lie! if you dont mean anything sarcastic by it, then call him by his chosen name. thats my unpopular two cents worth, but Im just tired of alot of theory with no proof of anything to prove that he is anything or anybody other than what he claims to be. Time may prove me wrong, but Im sorry, folks, I think he’s the same as you and me . and just because some website makes a claim or someone claims a word from God, ( which is more than not it seems to me bogus) we’ll have to wait and see.

    • LisaUK said

      Wilson,
      I appreciate what you were saying about Daniel and Nebachadazzar. Even so, we should be seeking the Holy Spirit of Yah Almighty.

      Exposing the hidden things is scriptural. Exposing the hidden things is not hate – it is love for the brethren who do not yet see what has been hidden. It is then up to them to test it through the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures.

      We cannot judge men’s heart, but we CAN see the fruits of the spirit they are operating under – and that fruit bears witness to whether it is the dark spirit that rules this world, or the Holy Spirit of Yah Almighty.

      THAT is not rumour, conspiracy THEORY or vitriol.

      I agree we need to avoid rumours, theories and vitriol. We should not, however, avoid speaking the Truth no matter how uncomfortable or unpleasant it is.

      I agree we should pray for the leaders and not fall into hating them. I do not believe Cathy hates Obama – she is exposing what she is seeing.

      Psalm 2:
      1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

      2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

      3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

      4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

      Ephesians 6 tells us:
      12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

      Ephesians 5 tells us about reproving or exposing the things of darkness…and there are other scriptures throughout the Bible about this.

      I encourage you to really ponder what those scriptures are telling us Wilson, because while I understand you long for us to be loving and tender with each other – being loving does not equate to sitting quietly in a corner and allowing evil to go unchecked. There is a way that seemeth right to a man but leads to death. We must be careful with our words because we will account for every one of them (and there is the real power of life and death in them) — and this only highlights to me, the importance of seeking Him first in ALL things to know the truth of any given situation, when to speak and what to speak. I’m learning that from Him. I’m also learning that sometimes what He urges us to speak in love, is actually hard to speak because it is vastly offensive or unpopular. Some of Yeshua’s sayings are hard! He even said so Himself.

      Yah bless you as you seek Him, Wilson.

      You never know. I don’t like Obama but he did stabs up fir religion in schools lately, I will see if I cab find the link to the story. The man in definatly not who I would like to be in charge of the country but like I said before on here he may just be a tool and not the villan he is often portrayed as

    • joe said

      No joeb, a Villan wouldn’t sentence thousands or millions to die via paying for abortions with my money. Just in case you missed the records from the govern-mental news, we the taxpayer-people are now paying for our young and old to have abortions abroad and at home. This healthcare bill has essentially bypassed any hope for making it illegal. You can say the cat is out of the bag. Try to reverse it. I would love to see someone try.

      The label ‘Villan’ is to kind a word for someone who voted, not once, not twice but three times in the Illinois legislator to have a unborn child from the womb of a mother only to let it die in some trash can. No, the label Villian couldn’t be right. It’s too nice a label.

    • Joe.b said

      Oh I’m not sayin he is a good man at all. There is no doubt he is a bad man and I did not vote for him. Aside from religious views I don’t even like his politics. He is no doubt a hethen and Cathy is right his politics are a enemy of the lord but I don’t think he is the enemy mastermind as many believe. I think he is trying to be a crowd pleaser and is a pawn in the scheme of things

    Interestingly enough, Chuck Missler is doing an interesting study on alternative views of Gog/Magog. The Jewish Scholars evidently refer to these people as Edomites (Rothschilds are one example given), when referring to supposed Jewish members of the Illuminati/Secret Societies.

    It’s worth a look.

  8. I listen to Chuck every day. He has some great insights. It does concern me, though, that he is a member of the Council for National Policy. I always have that nagging at me in the back of my mind.

    • Virginia said

      Hi Steve,

      My husband and I are familiar with Chuck Missler, too. We first heard him speak at a church not far from where we live and then some years later and some years ago when he appeared at a prophecy conference with Hal Linsdey and Grant Jefferies in the Seattle area. What’s the Council of National Policy and why does it “nag” at you?

    • Late Night Lisa said

      That is a concern. What got me last year is when he was a guest at our Church & went into a big Once Saved Always Saved teaching & was explaining to everyone that the only thing a Christian would loose if they backslid was their “rewards”.

      I sort of took it as- as long as you believe (not necessary follow) in Jesus Christ as the Messiah then you’re OK & will make it to heaven. So some people will live more carnal than others.

      The only difference is one will be rewarded greater than the other & that you should strive to accumulate your rewards while you can on earth.

      (Our pastor is not OSAS by the way.)

      I later found out that I was not the only one whose warning bells were going off on this aspect of his teaching which is basically saying that it’s impossible for a Christian to fall away from the faith or be deceived.

    • Here is a link to an article explaining what the CNP is. Basically, it’s the “Christian” version of the Council on Foreign Relations.

      http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Council_for_National_Policy

    • Thanks for sharing the link Steve to CNP. Very interesting indeed. I do find this troubling.

      Kevin J.

    • No problem, Kev. That’s why I always listen very carefully to what Chuck Missler says. Some things are fringe Dominionist, even though he adamantly claims to oppose that doctrine. As much as I respect him and his teaching, it wouldn’t take much to convince me to stop listening to him altogether, if I heard him say something that I thought was suspect.

    • joe said

      Late night, do you mean that you don’t believe that once we are saved, we are always save and Jesus bring me back a return slip? Are you saying we can loose our salvation, the gift of God? You mean if I truly get saved and sin some special sin I can loose it and Jesus becomes an Indian giver type?

    • tomj said

      Latenight………..what must I do to be saved……..and what must I do to stay saved

    • LisaUK said

      Joe,
      Once someone is following Yeshua – and if they remain in Him – they are safe, for no one can pluck us from His Hands.

      However. We can walk away at anytime. If, after receiving the Truth, we turn our hand from the plow and walk away – there is no second sacrifice. (It’s not so much what we profess – it’s what we do – action)

      The Heavenly Father does not force us. He keeps us safe IF we remain in Him. This illustrates that we must actively have a relationship with Him.

      Have a look at Hebrews 6 and 10 for the warnings to those who would turn away (both are different circumstances). Also – Ezekiel 18 speaks about this very topic.
      Hope this helps some:).

      Personally, I belive that if a person is truly saved and a child of God, then we cant lose our salvation. I think that would make God like us humans, and not the God that he is.

    Dr. Yulish…

    Greetings. Excellent post. Your most three convincing discussion points are:

    1.)”Satan hates God and his chosen people”…”Jewish Nation gave us Torah and Prophets, the Messiah and the apostles”…”Satan tried to distroy Messianic Birth for thousands of years. When that didn’t work he still kept trying to distroy the Jews” (think centuries of anti-semitism, the holocust, Masada et el, modern day hatreds also)

    2.)”Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem! Not Rome, not New York, not Salt Lake City”…”to establish His Kingdom and rule from there for a thousand years!”..(this is an elegant and most
    excellent point that I never thought of.)

    3.)”This is why I (Dr. Yulish) shun conspiracy theories because most of them blame the Jews.” (I’m totally with you on that one. Conspiracy theories are usually just gossip consisting of posion, hatred and propaganda designed to pursuade someone to hate another. Sometimes there is a lot of that even on this blog.)

    By reading your article I have increased my ability to argue persuasively regarding the rightful position of God’s chosen people with respect to the end times. These are things I fundamentally knew but sometimes can’t come up with the words for while debating with someone about it.

    One thing I could still use some information on is the “lost tribes” thing. With that hole in the donut dangling out there it leaves room for rediculous theories like the Garner Ted Armstrong thing and other dingbat ideas to emerge. Becaust of the “lost” designation anybody can claim to be a decendant.

    • LisaUK said

      Wilson, just read your Bible and trust the Holy Spirit to show you about the Lost Tribes. He is Faithful to those who seek Him. Don’t seek men to teach you — they all (including myself) are living in this kingdom of darkness and only see through a glass darkly. The Bible says men are liars and not to seek them. See Matthew 23 where Yeshua warns us about who teaches us and who misleads us.
      Yah bless you, Wilson.

    I think Skip Heitzig is feeling some heat for inviting Leonard Sweet to the worship conference. Here is today’s devotional- What to think about his reasoning & response? (It does appear to me that “Leonard Sweet” is definately truth mixed w/the profane of New Age thinking.)

    Dear Connection Friend,

    The Book of Acts is the story of perfect God using imperfect men, expressing their spirituality through imperfect personalities. So we shouldn’t be surprised to read that the leaders of the early Church sometimes didn’t see eye to eye. In Acts 15, Paul and Barnabas had a disagreement that was so strong that they ended their missionary partnership. Both of them were apostles, godly men, and leaders of the Church, but they had an argument.

    All people have conflict, even spiritual people. But when we disagree, it’s important for us to look at our motives.

    Sometimes conflicts are based on carnal motives. The disciples were being carnal when they wanted to call down fire from heaven, and when they argued as to who’d be the greatest in the Kingdom. And Paul criticized a division within the Corinthian church over who they were following (see 1 Corinthians 1:12). His reaction was, “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ” (3:1).

    Remember that we have a common enemy who seeks to fuel any disagreement to the level of carnality, even if it doesn’t start out that way. As John Trapp said, “The devil loves to fish in troubled waters.”

    Other times, conflicts are corrective. This happens when the conflict is over issues of doctrine versus false doctrine, where the false doctrine could undermine the very foundation and fabric of the church. Then, the Christian is called to put up a good fight for the faith. Jude 3 says, “Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.”

    And sometimes it’s not carnal or corrective, it’s just a clash. The conflict in Acts 15:37-40 was one of those. Paul and Barnabas argued over whether to take John Mark with them on a missionary journey. Paul said no, Barnabas said yes. But they were seeing things from different angles; it was a personality clash. Paul was interested in the work, and Barnabas was interested in the worker.

    G. Campbell Morgan wrote, “I am greatly comforted whenever I read this… If I had never read that Paul and Barnabas had a contention, I should have been afraid. These men were not angels, they were men.”

    So what am I saying about conflict within our spiritual family? First, God reserves the right to use people who disagree with you. Second, if your expectation is that all Christians are going to get together, join arms and sing love songs, I’ve got to tell you…you’ve just described heaven, not earth. That’s not going to happen until we all go to heaven.

    Until then, when there’s conflict, ask yourself: Is this disagreement carnal? Is it corrective, over vital issues of doctrine? Or is it just a clash, over valid points of view? We can disagree, but let’s do it agreeably.

    In His strong love,

    Skip Heitzig

    Wilson,
    Referring to someone’s post with only the word “propaganda” definitely does not hold up as to your following statement in another post, “By reading your article ‘I have increased my ability to argue persuasively regarding the rightful position of
    God’s chosen people with respect to the end times. ‘ ”
    I totally respect your right to disagree with me AND my right to disagree with you. However, I do not stoop to name calling nor one word criticisms (or longer) to cast in a disparaging light your PERSONAL opinions!

    The Jews are the Tribe of Judah, one of the Twelve Tribes. In the written word of God we are told the other tribes were scattered, according to the Bible, to the ‘ends of the earth.’
    Recently Bibi announced to the world Ez. 37 has been fulfilled in Israel.
    The Western Churches who have embraced the false ‘Replacement Theology’ doctrine are in gross error.

  12. LisaUK said

    There are many people jumping to conclusions.

    Zionists are one thing.
    Jews are another.
    And fake jews are yet another.

    There are fake jews, posing as real jews. They align themselves with zionism, yet not always openly.

    I have been called anti-semitic once, by merely asking a messianic friend who she thought the fake jews were listed in Rev 2:9 and Rev 3:9.

    Blessedly, the Holy Spirit showed me who they are. They are the zionists who call themselves jews but are really not jews. They are the illuminists – the luciferians – the ones in powerful, high places in govts, corporations, etc around the world. They do not advertise they are zionists, or illuminists but a lot of them do claim to be ‘jews’, when they are not.

    Yeshua warned us TWICE in Revelation about the fake jews. OBVIOUS to me – is that we must ask Him to show us who they are – and not end up judging someone wrongly because they say they are a Jew. Only the Holy Spirit can lead us into Truth.

    We’re to test all things. And lean not on our own understanding. They are many in the messianic movement who are too quick to uphold traditions of men (‘jewish’ traditions steeped in the EVIL Talmud). So, it is wise to be cautious and not consider ANY source ‘safe’– except that of the Holy Spirit and Yah’s Word – the Scriptures.

    • Janet in Israel said

      LisaUK,
      There are indeed “fake” jews, people who CLAIM to be “jews” engrafted, and they try to REPLACE the Jews whom God Himself, by His own hand, has brought back to the land of Israel, according to His own promises and will. These fake jews call themselves the TRUE Israel of God. These are the ones who, in direct disobedience to the scripture in Rom.11, are arrogant against the NATURAL branches and say “THEY were broken off!”, therefore God is done with them. WE Gentiles are called to pray FOR them, not replace them. By Yeshua the Messiah, we have been granted full enjoyment of THEIR promise, and according to God, ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED.

      Do you know that the greatest “ZIONIST” of all time is God Himself?
      Zionism is the dream of returning to the land of Zion. The Zion of God is written about in a multitude of places in scripture.

      You said:
      “Blessedly, the Holy Spirit showed me who they are. They are the zionists who call themselves jews but are really not jews.

They do not advertise they are zionists, or illuminists but a lot of them do claim to be ‘jews’, when they are not.”

      This doctrine has taken hold firmly in the Pentecostal churches. It is NOT of God at all, it is from the pit of hell. It has its roots in age old Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion, a document created by anti-semites in the days of Tzarist Russia. Its aim is to delegitimize Israel and therefore any Jewish claim to the land of Israel. Stop the Jews from coming back to Israel, and you stop the Messiah from fulfilling prophecy, and coming to take up His Holy throne in Jerusalem. Satan is trying to stop God from fulfilling His plan for His kingdom on earth, so that he Satan can set up his OWN kingdom. THIS is the aim of anti-Zionism. It is anti the promises of God to the Jewish people and of Israel.

      By the way, MOST and I mean MOST of your Illuminati, Free-Mason, Luciferian government people are GENTILES, but no one EVER mentions them. They only focus on the Jewish ones. Why?
      This has been used against the Jewish people for generations.
      You ask me to be careful of accusing you of saying something you did not?
      I ask you to be careful of accusing Jews whom you do not know of being evil, corrupt, and Luciferian, based on heresay and old anti-semitic literature. I ask you to be careful of accusing Zionists of being evil when you show you have no idea what Zionism really is. You have made strong accusations against a people whom God says He has foreknown and promises to save UNCONDITIONALLY in Ezekiel 36, Romans 11, and Zechariah 12.

    • lamarzulli said

      Janet – I couldn’t agree more with you! Well said. This is the reason I published Dr. Yulish’s article on the BLOG. There is an element that clings to this false teaching…. L.A.

    • LisaUK said

      Janet,

      It is clear to me that you have mistaken what I believe, and what I testify that the Holy Spirit has shown me. I have failed, in some measure I see, to communicate it more clearly. My apologies.

      The term Zionism is throughout the Scriptures and I know what its true, original meaning is.

      I believe there is a perversion, which I used the term ‘zionism’ (with a small ‘z’) — a perversion of the truth by satan – as per the protocols of the elders of zion – the fake jews (some sources say they ‘converted’) who claim to be jews, which is exactly what I was saying in the post you have replied too, if I’m understanding you correctly. They have a sinister agenda, which you pretty much seem to lay out when you said:

      Janet said:

      When you said, 'this doctrine has taken hold firmly in the Pentecostal churches' – I'm not sure what that entails. Somehow whatever that entails – I suspect you have lumped ME in with them.

      Perhaps it's not safe to assume everyone in other parts of the world is familiar with the terminology found in the American church system.

      If you'd like to define what you meant by that statement – feel free, but there is certainly no obligation. I prefer to *try* to speak plainly. That's why I attempted to define 'zionism' in my previous post. I can see I need to be more careful in making a clearer distinction when I use terms like 'zionism' or 'Zionism' together.

      Perhaps you would read my previous post more carefully again, taking note that I capitalised Zionism, yet in another place I did not when I wrote 'zionism'. The point I'm making is that I understand true Zionism, and I believe there is a perversion of it by satan which he calls zionism (and I tend to use lower case to make the distinction). Again – apologies for not being clearer about this.

      Some deny this perversion of zionism even exists. I disagree. It exists.

      You further said:
      "By the way, MOST and I mean MOST of your Illuminati, Free-Mason, Luciferian government people are GENTILES, but no one EVER mentions them. They only focus on the Jewish ones. Why?"

      I would tend to agree. From my research, many of them who claim to be Jews are actually converts (not genetic) from way back. I suspect you are aware of the history, from what you wrote above. In any case, I believe many who claim to be Jews, are in fact NOT [genetically] Jews, but were from a line of people (Khazars) who 'converted' to Judaism way back. And it is these who are perpetuating an evil agenda against the real Jews.

      Perhaps we are saying the same thing. Or a similar thing on this particular point.

      All that aside, however, I do not buy into the false doctrine that Jews are special ABOVE every other people. I believe Yah loves them and will keep His promises to them, just as He will keep the other promises He made to others. That includes Ishmael – to throw another unpopular truth into the ring.

      I would like to ask LNL, if she is now going to charge Janet with coming across as if she knows it all. Because, Janet, your tone with me has been to charge in, lump me with another person – categorise me [wrongly] without actually asking me a question.

      I'm not a teacher as dr Yulish claims to be.

    • LisaUK said

      Janet,

      One more thing.

      You said:
      “There are indeed “fake” jews, people who CLAIM to be “jews” engrafted, and they try to REPLACE the Jews whom God Himself, by His own hand, has brought back to the land of Israel, according to His own promises and will.

WE Gentiles are called to pray FOR them, not replace them. By Yeshua the Messiah, we have been granted full enjoyment of THEIR promise, and according to God, ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED.”

      I want to be VERY clear about what I do and do not believe:

      I do NOT believe ‘we’ replace ‘them’.

      The natural branches were cut off. But I do not believe Yah is ‘done with them’.

      Romans 11 says way more than you are purporting. One is how the natural branches were cut off BECAUSE of unbelief. But that is NOT the main point – the main point is they and anyone can be grafted back into the vine by following Messiah Yeshua. I boasted against NO ONE.

      I personally have NEVER stated that I believe gentiles have replaced Jews – or anyone else that Yah made promises too. Please be careful not to attribute things to me which I have not said. You basically lumped me into some kind of group with a list of beliefs I DO NOT hold.

    • LisaUK said

      Janet,

      I do know what true ZIONISM is.
      I also know the perversion of it – ‘zionism’ – protocols of the elders of zionism.
      I attempted to make a distinction between ‘zionism’ and true ‘Zionism’ (as per the Scriptures – not some made made doctrine – the Scriptures are my reference, to be very clear that I’m not jumping onto some man’s definition of true Zionism)

      I have called the Talmud EVIL because it IS evil. ANYONE who says it is not evil either has not read it, or is a liar.

      ANY person, be they[real] Jew, fake jew, gentile or whatever, who participates in the perverted protocols of zion are in a pact with evil. THAT is what I was communicating IS happening on this planet.

      So, NO Janet, I have not made an accusation in the way you thought.

    This came to mind after listening to April 28th Acceleration Radio with David Brennan.

    Besides severe weather events that seem to occur whenever agreements are made to give away Israeli land for peace, there also appears, in some cases, to be personal consequences. Let me state for the record that I do not wish harm to come upon anyone who might have any part in giving away land that belongs to Israel. As I said, these two events just came to mind. One would hope that the people in the Israeli government would connect the dots but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

    I do not agree with ‘dr’ Yulish holding onto the FALSE doctrine that causes separation in the BODY OF YESHUA. The Jews are NOT Yah’s chosen people. The unbelieving Jews were CUT OFF for their unbelief and the believing Jews have been GRAFTED BACK INTO THE VINE along with ANYONE ELSE who follows the LAMB (who are also grafted into the vine).

    This doctrine that there is a special, chosen people *above* the ‘grafted in gentile’ is unbiblical and extremely divisive and evil.

    Don’t believe me. Get on your knees and ask the Holy Spirit to show you. That’s how I found out the Truth.

    If you don’t seek Him – you will end up believing some of these guys when they tell you that you must obey the Noahide laws because you are a ‘gentile’.

    Remember, there is NO Jew, Greek or Gentile IN YESHUA.

    So Yah’s laws are the SAME for ALL HIS CHILDREN.

    Don’t listen to man. Man is a liar. Yeshua is faithful and true.

      I completely agree With what you say Lisa; There is only ONE Israel, ONE Olive Tree into Which Both Jews & gentiles Are Grafted into and That is the Israel of God, The Commonwealth Of Israel.

      Jesus The Messiah Is The “Seed” Of Abraham. He is the “Holy Root” of the Olive Tree.
      The Clear teaching of the Apostles is “Not about Race it is about Grace”.

      The way Of salvation For Any man of any Race in this Age is By Faith Through Grace.

      Any who are to enter into this provision of Salvation must believe the Gospel about The FINISHED work OF Calvary.
      TODAY is the day of Salvation, Today Christ stands at the Door Knocking asking For entrance.

      There is no second act of mercy to be shown To any man After The “Last Trumpet” Blows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Men by their vain and Glorious Imaginations have Twisted the truth of salvation promising Jews who are considering building a temple and restoring Animal sacrifices.
      COME ON People; If that is not trampling under foot The Cross of Christ Then What Is?

      Jesus I coming To JUDGE Jews & Gentiles and not to save any. His messianic ministry was by His Incarnation, His Suffering, His Resurrection. This is The Mystery of godliness The Apostle Spoke Of as being revealed in the last days.

      The Holy Spirit Has Come into the world to convict All “Jews And Gentiles” of Sin, Judgment, and righteousness.

    • Cathy In WY said

      Isobel, I have heard the same thing regarding BHO’s visit to see Rev. Billy Graham while in NC last weekend. Interesting to note that in the past, Rev. Billy Graham has publicly stated that there are more than one path (Jesus Christ) to Father God. This is contrary to what the Bible clearly states. Billy’s son, Franklin, just stood his ground and wouldn’t renounce his past statements that Islam is wicked and so his invitation to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast including Pentagon and White House visits was rescinded! Also interesting to not that both BHO and Graham have been said to both be Freemasons! Freemasonry’s God is not the One True, Living God of the Bible. Fremasonry’s God is Lucifer/Satan. Freemasonry books also state ‘There are many paths to God!” Many Christian men have been deceived into thinking it’s a ‘Christian’ organization so they will join and pay their dues and fees as they progress up through the degrees. Later as they approach the upper levels they find out the truth, but they are already ensnared. As the Holy spirit revealed to me by teachers and research in my quest because truth according to the Written Word of God is important to me, I have renounced my family’s generational ties to Freemasonry.

    • Virginia said

      Dear Cathy in WY,
      Thanks for your post. It never occured to me to renounce one’s generational ties to Freemasonry. My paternal grandfather was a 33rd degree Mason as is my father-in-law. Happily, my fr-in-law is no longer active and has said that he does not want any masonic ritual at his funeral. Some years ago we went to a funeral at a Baptist Church and after the funeral service some kind of masonic ritual was performed. The deceased had been a Mason. Thank God neither my dad nor my husband ever joined.

    • Cathy in Wy said

      You’re welcome Virginia.
      Both sides of my husband and my families were Masons. My husband’s Mom was a devout dedicated and faithful born again believer of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. My husbands’ Father was a 33rd degree also. He did not renounce his vows nor have his name removed from their rolls. The Masonic Lodge in his area, prior to and after his death was soliciting money from his estate. Since he hadn’t removed himself, his only daughter mistakenly thought he would want to leave a part of his estate to them ( and they were desiring a sizable portion!) Perhaps she was unaware that her father did not agree with Masons and was totally inactive, in his later years of membership. I told her and yet she didn’t not fully believe me regarding what her father had shared with me about how he truly felt about Freemasonry. Unfortunately she he buried them both in a Masonic Cemetyary at the family plot (under the ‘sacred pillar of Freemasonry’ I was so disappointed! I hope knowing this helps and you and others learn from our hard won and difficult experience.

    • sandra said

      Virginia, Cathy in WY, see if you can shed some light on this for me- I hear once in awhile about renouncing ties to freemasonry, or this or that, I mean, as far as past family members go, why would it bother me now? Im me, not them. Several years ago I read a book called ” spiritual housecleaning”, and Ive gotta say, to me it seemed like a bunch of hocus pocus superstition. Can some one enlighten me about this? Id like to hear anyones take on this.

    • Cathy in Wy said

      Hi Sandra,
      In response to your question, I renounced the vows of Freemasonry, desiring to be obedient and asking God to cleanse me by the Blood of Jesus after I repented and renounced all vows, sin and anything which might hinder me –known or unknown sins. IT is written that the sins of the fathers can be visited even to the third and forth generations, so I looked back even farther generationally. I love Jesus Christ and desire a deep personal relationship with Him. He has promised us freedom through Him, in the Bible, so this is what I seek on a daily basis, to know Jesus and to grow in my relationship with Him. Not hocus pocus, but what I gleaned from reading and studying the Word of God, the scriptures.

      The Bible is the standard against which all other spirits and words from men must be tested. Many aren’t being taught this in today’s churches. My grandfather was a pastor in North Carolina, on fire and passionate for Jesus and Father God. Perhaps the intensity came from my time with him in his church as a little child. He called sin, sin and gave altar calls to bring many to Jesus and also preached fire and brimstone and like Jonathan Edwards! He preached the pure, undefiled Gospel of God’s Kingdom and Jesus Christ’s soon 2nd Coming! Sometimes I can still hear his voice ringing out calling others to repent and return to Jesus and their love and walk with the Lord. We serve a righteous and Holy God, who will not nor cannot be in the presence of sin!
      Again, check any book written by a man/woman by the inspired Written Word of God, The Holy Bible.

      I hope my response to your question helps you. Blessings in the name of Jesus.

    • sandra said

      Cathy, thanks for your response to my inquiry. Ive thought before that when it talks about curses to the 3rd and 4th generation, that maybe it does not mean actual curse, but a learned behavior from the way someone was raised. Ive even heard some preachers say that too. I belive the bible is the literal words of God, but still.. its a sticky passage to me. I guess its better to be safe than sorry. I just cant wrap my mind around why I should have judgement on me for something a family member did.

    • Cathy in WY said

      Sandra,
      The Bible says what is says. Sometimes I might question it, however I do believe God cannot lie and that His written word is truth. I also ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in Godly Wisdom before reading the Bible and for His help in understanding and discernment of what I’m reading in The Book. This helps. I am reminded of the verses, “God’s ways are not our ways.” Sometimes we don’t understand God’s ways, but they are His ways none the less. As a loving, merciful, righteous and just Father, He loves us and ‘gave us His Son while we were yet sinners!’
      Like others who study the written word–I have found the King James Version (1611) to be more correct and preserves the Diety of Jesus Christ, more than modern versions. I place my trust in Him, and lean not to my own understanding. Blessings as you study and grow in Jesus Christ.

    Okay, that’s it. I’m bringing the Sword.

    The hexagram, which is called ‘The Star of David’ by some Jews, is the star of the god Remphan. It’s in the BIBLE.

    Amos 5:
    26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your MOLOCH and CHIUN your images, the STAR OF YOUR god, which ye made to yourselves.

    27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Most High, whose name is YHWH of hosts.

    Acts 7:
    42Then YHWH turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets [see Amos above for one witness!], O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?

    43Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of MOLOCH, and the STAR OF YOUR god REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

    !!

    Hello. It makes my stomach turn to see anyone justifying the symbols they use to identify themselves – while making light of the scriptures – saying the scriptures are not saying what they ARE CLEARLY SAYING.

    I would like to ask dr Yulish some questions:

    1) Do you study (and believe) Talmud?

    2) There are 12 tribes from Jacob’s loins. Not just Judah (Jews).
    Jacob was clearly renamed ‘Israel’.

    So, referring to the ‘chosen people’ as ‘Jews’ is not accurate or true.

    Clearly, from reading the OT, there was a huge problem with ALL the tribes (including Judah/the Jews) following idols, keeping His commands, writing (Talmud) their own ‘commands’ to ‘build a hedge’ around Yah’s commands (creating a burden that no one could carry), and continually grieving Him in various ways.

    As a result of their rebellious stiffneckedness, idolatry, etc – the tribes – the NATURAL branches – were cut off. When Messiah Yeshua came – those who did NOT believe He was the Messiah REMAINED CUT OFF.

    So, here is my 2nd question:
    Why do you call everyone descended from Abraham, ‘Jews’? This obfuscates the TRUTH!
    Clearly, there are more than Jews that were descended from Abraham. And if they do not believe in Messiah Yeshua – they will REMAIN cut off.

    3) Why did you say “so called Lost Tribes”? Do you think the rest of the tribes are not as important as Judah? What exactly do you mean by what you said?
    Speak plainly please.

    4) Why do you cry anti-semitism when people are seeking the Truth?! What I mean by that, is your reaction to the verses in Rev 2 & 3 is sadly TYPICAL, in my unpleasant experiences with Jews who claim to love and follow Yeshua. It shuts down fruitful dialogue and a fruitful quest to know the TRUTH.
    Has it occurred to you that perhaps – just perhaps you’ve been lied to just like the rest of the ekklesia?

    There is NO Jew, Gentile or Greek in Messiah Yeshua.

    There is ONE Israel. ALL who come to Yeshua are either:
    a) natural branches, previously cut off from unbelief, but are grafted back in when they believed, picked up their cross and followed Yeshua.
    or
    b) the foreigner/outsider/gentile, grafted into the Vine, when they believed, picked up their cross and followed Yeshua.

    Obvious to me now, is that the lost tribes do not know who they are. The prophecy in Ezekiel about about Ephraim and Judah being joined together again to form ISRAEL will happen. To those who do not know – Ephraim was the son of Joseph (who is the youngest son of Jacob/Israel) and represents the 10 tribes in that prophecy in Ezekiel, while Judah represents the tribe of Judah and the tribe of Levi.

    Lastly, please do not try to hood wink those of us who are studying to shew ourselves approved unto our beloved Master Yeshua, into believing the lie – LIE – that ‘Jews’ are chosen people over all the other tribes or anyone else who follows Him. It is NOT about genetics. Genetics mean nothing anymore.

    It is apparent to me, that dr Yulish has been well trained in some seminary somewhere, and frankly – I do not trust ANY seminary anymore. They are mostly infiltrated by the minions of satan. Oh – that’s a conspiracy you say? You laugh and mock and say this is ridiculous? It’s too far out there?

    Really? Is it?

    Seriously – wake up and test ALL things/claims/doctrines THROUGH Yeshua (and the scriptures), who said in Matthew 23:

    1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

    2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:

    3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

    4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

    5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

    6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

    7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

    8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

    9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

    11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

    12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

    13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

    14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

    15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

    Who are the Scribes and Pharisees who sat in Moses seat?
    The very ones Yeshua called hypocrites (and He called them ‘vipers’ when He caught them in the temple, selling wares).

    I believe Yeshua meant every single word He uttered out of His blessed Mouth.
    He warned us TWICE about fake jews, who say they are jews, but are not Jews. And on that note, I agree with dr Yulish, that the fake jews are NOT JEWS. But, I do not agree with dr Yulish’s ideas in the other areas noted above. I would appreciate a sincere response.

    • Late Night Lisa said

      LisaUK, I realize you are addressing Dr. Yulish but I had a couple toughts after reading your posts.

      It was just a couple days ago I was studying up on symbols & discovered that the hexagram has pagan roots but- that’s not all- so does the cross & fish symbol. (I know quite shocking- I thought so myself.)

      Should we be all guilty as charged or does God have enough grace to bestow upon us until He comes back & sets all the records straight?

      I’ve never seen the “cross” used as such a trendy fashion statement as it is now for those who are currently either pagans or godless. Crosses are in an abundant supply and it’s not due to a great revival in bending one’s knee to a righteous holy God.

      It’s almost as if the demonic are jeering Christians in that they are loosing the spiritual warfare battle for the souls of men. The tides have turned & they have gained ground type of thing.

      But in short- you can’t legalistically pin the hexagram on the Jews unless you pin the cross/fish on the Christians.(We also know that Satan copies what God initiates.)

      In regards to the Jewish nation & the Gentiles- what do these passages mean to you?

      Romans 11:17-35

      And if some of the branches be broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree;Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bore not the root, but the root you.

      You will say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Be not high minded, but fear:For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not you.

      Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness: otherwise you also shall be cut off.

      And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.

      For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

      For I would not, brothers, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

      And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:For this is my covenant to them, when I shall take away their sins.

      As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes.

      For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.For as you in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

      For God has concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy on all.

      O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

      For who has known the mind of the Lord? or who has been his counselor?…

      Hi LateNightLisa,

      You said:
      “Should we be all guilty as charged or does God have enough grace to bestow upon us until He comes back & sets all the records straight?”

      Yah said His people perish for lack of knowledge.
      Yah warned His people Israel to destroy all vestiges of pagan worship that they found in the Promised Land. Not only did God want to prevent His people from being enticed to worship false gods, but He also specifically revealed that He did not want His people to worship Him in the **same manner** in which the heathen worshipped their gods. Deut12:29-32 amongst many other Scriptures (like Jeremiah 10) show us how important it is to seek to know what is pleasing to Him. Come out of Babylon, lest you share in her plagues is another scripture that comes to mind.

      There is willful sin and their is sinning in ignorance. Many of us have sinned against Him out of ignorance – lack of knowledge of the Truth. So, yes, in a sense we are guilty. And yes, He IS merciful:). However, WHEN He brings the Truth of a given matter to the table for us to chew on — we MUST then consider it – take it before Him (test all things!) – and wait for Him to show us if what has been presented is True or not. Do you see what I mean?

      So, once I found out about the ‘star of David’, the cross (it was used way before Christianity), and dagon the fish god (fish symbol symbolises this pagan god), I had a CHOICE. I was at a crossroad. I had to choose whether or not I would continue to see those symbols as ‘harmless’, or I could take steps to avoid them in my life.

      This is an example of testing things. This path to eternal life in Yeshua is not broad. And He leads us into ALL Truth, little by little, precept upon precept (Isaiah 28). As He sheds Light on things, we need to take heed.

      It is prophesied that He will send the spirit of Elijah to restore all things. I believe He is restoring many things now, to those who are seeking Him. If we seek Him first in all things, He is faithful to answer us, teach us and lead us into all Truth – little by little;). Isn’t that amazingly merciful and graceful?!

      You also said:
      “I’ve never seen the “cross” used as such a trendy fashion statement as it is now for those who are currently either pagans or godless. Crosses are in an abundant supply and it’s not due to a great revival in bending one’s knee to a righteous holy God…….

      But in short- you can’t legalistically pin the hexagram on the Jews unless you pin the cross/fish on the Christians.(We also know that Satan copies what God initiates.)”

      I shared the scriptures He showed me. The Israelites were using the hexagram way back and Yah warned them (see those scriptures again) about it.

      Many Jews are still using the hexagram today – saying it is a symbol of David – saying it is a good symbol. Does that make it okay? Imo, it is not good according to Yah’s Word.

      I will certainly stand up, as He leads me, to speak the Truth on the matter. That’s what I did.
      Is that legalistic? No. It is standing in the Truth – judging rightly.

      You asked me what Romans 11 means to me:

      It means what it says. Read it carefully.
      It is saying the natural branches were cut off for unbelief.
      It is a warning to ALL, that unbelief equals death (being cut off).

      He is warning us: if He would cut off the natural branches for unbelief – then He would do the same for everyone else who became grafted in but wandered into unbelief!
      Romans 11 highlights the importance of Faith (belief).
      If we go to the story of the exodus out of Egypt, we see how unbelief prevented everyone (except two young men – Joshua and Caleb) from entering the Promised Land.

      I do not see in Romans, a message that says one people are special over another. I see Him warning everyone of the importance of belief and faith in Him.

      He really does not want anyone to perish (true Merciful and Loving Father) – and that whoever responds to His call will be grafted into the Vine. Once grafted in, we must maintain our relationship with the Root (Yeshua), lest we bear no fruit and shrivel up and get cut off.
      As we die to self (submit to Him in our daily life), He is THEN able to bear fruit through us (the branches).

      It’s not about genetics (natural branches or wild). It’s about remaining in Him, allowing Him to empty us (die to self) and live THROUGH us:).

      Hope that answers your question LNL.

      We all can only walk in the Light He has shed on each of us. Paul said we see through a glass darkly and that is so true. We must each be willing to stand in the Truth He has given each of us. He is leading us out of ‘Egypt’ (the world of lies and illusion by satan) into His Truth, little by little. We must be willing to take each thing we present to each other, before the Father, and test it through Him and His Word – to allow HIM to teach us and vet what we’re reading/seeing and hearing. When red flags go up in my Spirit, I ask Him about it. He’s Faithful and True:).

    • Late Night Lisa said

      LisaUK,

      The difference between you and I is that when a truth is revealed- such as pagan symbolism- you take a hard-line perspective.

      Is that honestly where the Lord wants you to go with it?

      The problem is when you speak- you speak as if you know it all- God’s way- and that is the end of it.

      Hopefully you do realize that we too have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us & are also guided by Him & hear His voice.

      If our viewpoints don’t mesh then it’s worth taking another look at. God may use your gifts to approach things one way while He may use another to approach things differently.

      Is the information (truth) really viewed in humility & love & waiting upon the Lord’s direction or do you process it quickly & from your own viewpoint?

      The reason why I ask this question is because my natural tendency is to rush into a black & white scenario & miss the whole view of what the Lord directs me to do w/the information.

      I have learned over time to take a deep breath & wait.

      Such as w/the symbols. Instead of condemning everyone who is knowingly or unknowingly involved- how does God want us to use this information for His purpose & Glory?

      Is my attitude reflective of His love for people & how could I be used to reach the hearts & minds of those who I come into contact with?

      I’m certain there will be a day in which all of the pagan symbols will be revealed (to all) & removed (as directed in the OT) but could it be that it’s not His timing yet?

      If the Lord is not telling a Spirit filled pastor to remove the Cross on the top of the Church then who am I to think that somehow he can’t hear God’s voice?

      If a Christian wears a cross because they feel it’s a symbol of their faith in Christ & they love Him w/all of their heart, mind, soul, strength and are filled w/love & grace for their neighbor – at this point in time I don’t hear the Spirit telling me to say “take the cross off of your neck & get out of Babylon!”.

      If they are wearing a cross but after talking w/them are not attached to the vine then I have an opportunity to encourage them in love to return & seek the Lord.

      Personally I am not thrilled w/any pagan inspired Holiday or anything else I discover is contrary to the Lord but His ways are greater than our ways & if there are people who are only reached though these means then God can still use me in various ways since I have not completely severed my ties w/any & all things which have historically pagan roots.

      And believe me – it’s difficult because I like you- don’t like it at all.

      I remain patient for the sake of the Kingdom & when the day comes for the Lord to dissolve all of these pagan things I couldn’t be more overjoyed!

      That is what the Spirit is telling me to do w/this info (Reach out to others) & perhaps He has another plan for you. (Discernment ministry,..ect..)

      My response:

      LNL,
      You might remember that my post was directed at dr Yulish. Those who are in teaching/pastoral/shepherding positions are held to a higher accountability. Sadly, today – many are blind that are leading the blind. That is prophesied so it should be no surprise that He is using some of us to sound an alarm that false doctrines are abounding. It is not about me or my opinions or me thinking I know it all (I do not, contrary to how you think I come across) — it is simply the Truth of the time we live in.

      Sometimes, when the Holy Spirit calls us to speak something, they are not easy words to speak, nor are they easy to hear when it challenges our long held beliefs.
      Please keep in perspective that my post was to Yulish.

      Also, further on in your reply to me you said:

      “Is the information (truth) really viewed in humility & love & waiting upon the Lord’s direction or do you process it quickly & from your own viewpoint?”

      LNL, No, I do not process anything quickly. I have learned some hard lessons about waiting on Him to show me how to use information He has taught me. It’s been a humiliating process of learning over the last few years.

      The Holy Spirit moved me to ask those questions of dr Yulish. That post was not directed at anyone else.

      Lisa, you replied to my post to dr Yulish and asked me questions, and I asked the LORD to help me reply to you as He would have me reply. Please read my previous reply to you again. I meant every word of it. We all walk in the Light He has given us. I condemn no one. Speaking the Truth boldly where there is untruth requires righteous judgement (by the Holy Spirit), but please keep in mind that righteous judgement of a doctrine and reproof is not the same thing as condemnation.

      You then said:
      “The reason why I ask this question is because my natural tendency is to rush into a black & white scenario & miss the whole view of what the Lord directs me to do w/the information.

      I have learned over time to take a deep breath & wait.

      Such as w/the symbols. Instead of condemning everyone who is knowingly or unknowingly involved- how does God want us to use this information for His purpose & Glory?”

      My reply:

      Lisa, I have made the same mistakes too.
      I pray and ask Him what I am to speak, if anything at all. Many times I read things that scream false doctrine, yet, He stops me from saying anything. Other times, He calls me to speak something. I rarely understand why.
      And sometimes I miss the bigger picture, like everyone else who is going through this sanctification process with Him.
      I do not claim to be perfect. I do not claim to hold all Truth. If you read my last reply to you, again, you will perhaps see I was already addressing much of what you’ve brought up, when I said we can only walk in the Light He has given us. I also testified to you how, when He brings us to a crossroad, we have to choose what to do with that information. I know in my experience, I didn’t realise it was Him trying to show me something and I ignored it and brushed it aside. He extends His loving mercy by showing us (bringing us to the crossroads) over and over and over again, until we realise it really is Him talking to us. This illustrates me to His amazing patience with us. He really does not one of us to perish.
      However, there comes a point (and for each person it is different and it is between them and Him) where we must choose life or death in a given matter. He has put a burden on my heart about how time is short, how we need to test all things, and seek Him first, and not lean on our own understanding. And sometimes He calls me to speak about certain things, and I’m learning just like everyone else who is seeking Him.

      If you are asking me what I did when I found out about the cross, the dagon fish god and the star of David and other things like that – I can tell you this and perhaps dispel the idea that I think I know it all and jump to conclusions quickly:

      First I found out about the cross when I was a very little girl. So, I never wore them. I also learned I was to judge rightly about things like this, but never ever condemn others. Throughout my life, I have rarely spoken a word about people wearing crosses. I was very vocal about it when teaching my children, however.

      I found out about the fish god while reading a story in the OT. I felt the Holy Spirit stirring in me – connecting the dots. At first, I thought I must be nuts. Over a few weeks time, He confirmed for me that the fish god and the fish symbol were one in the same. I’ve rarely uttered a word to anyone about this. I’ve certainly never condemned anyone about the fish symbol either. Blessedly, I always felt funny about having ‘symbols’ like crosses and fishes – so there wasn’t anything for me to ‘purge’ or get rid of, but it did confirm to me NOT to take up symbols……
      My daughter wears a fish symbol (on a necklace). She asked me if I thought it was bad (like the crosses and the star of David, which she knows the truth about). I simply shared with her what the Holy Spirit had shown me about dagon in the OT – and told her to pray and seek Him about the matter. It is between her and Yah. Of course, I pray He will show her it is unpleasing to Him.

      Until this post to dr Yulish, I had uttered no words to hardly anyone about the star of David, other than to ask others if they had been shown the same thing. I have condemned no one on this either.

      You said:
      “I’m certain there will be a day in which all of the pagan symbols will be revealed (to all) & removed (as directed in the OT) but could it be that it’s not His timing yet? ”

      Yes, it is prophesied that there will be a day when He purges all this from His people. And I long for that day. It is also prophesied that the spirit of Elijah will come to restore all things in the latter days. We are in the latter days. Restoration is happening. Yah is calling many to come out of Bablyon and He is helping those who heed His call, to purge the worldly perversions of the truth out of us. It is a process that each person, who follows Him, is going through. It’s also prophesied that many will fall, and that many will not heed His call. (thinking 7 churches in Revelation…and when I read that, I am examining myself)

      You said:
      “If the Lord is not telling a Spirit filled pastor to remove the Cross on the top of the Church then who am I to think that somehow he can’t hear God’s voice?”

      Lisa, this particular statement brings up a huge [important] topic. I don’t know how much you are studying the OT but it is clear to me that the majority (almost all) of the pastors in these latter days are blind and should not be leading flocks unless and until they are on their knees repenting of all the leaven that has infiltrated much of the doctrine they are teaching. And blessedly some are – just not very many.
      I would also like to point out there are also many wolves in sheep’s clothing. Just today, a sister told me how her brother quit seminary after two years because they were teaching them how to cajole widows to leave their estates to the church. He left in disgust, with his faith sorely tested, bless his honest heart.

      Ezekiel 34(see the whole chapter though):
      1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

      2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

      3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

      4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

      5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

      6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

      10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

      11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.

      12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

      Matthew 7:
      15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

      16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

      17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

      18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

      19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

      20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

      HE is seeking His flock out now. You see, Lisa – most would say – oh, this Ezekiel passage is talking about the Jews, when it is talking about the scattered flock. It is about everyone who belongs to Him. Many are being fleeced by the fat, lazy shepherds who only feed themselves. And many wolves in sheep’s clothing are running churches now.

      Perhaps this answers your questions?
      Yah bless and keep you as you seek Him.

    Dear Lord:

    Bless your holy name. I thank you for this blog and the people who attend here. I thank you for Dr. Lynn who spends so much time making this available to all of us. I pray that you would protect all of us and prevent the enemy from bringing division and argumentation to disrupt your grace and working within this blog. Please bring all of us to Your understanding for Your Holy Word and help us to humbly and greatfully use this blog to lift each other up, encourage each other, enlighten each other without letting our spirits being lifted up in pride. May we let your love live through us, not puffed up knowledge or pride. Help us all in our weaknesses and bless us all as we are seeking to know You and Your Word better. Amen

      Dear Lisa,

      It is good to pray for peace and protection over everyone who visits this blog.

      There will, however, be divisions and differences in the way people views topics, because the body of professing believers cannot agree in ONE Spirit over hardly anything. That is why there are many denominations around the world.

      That is why I do not belong to any denomination. The Holy Spirit once asked, ‘What or who is your covering?’. That made me stop and think very carefully. My allegiance – my covering is Yeshua. And it can only be Him and nothing and no one else. I can only walk as He leads me. Speak as He leads me. And bring a word to cut through an untruth, as He leads me. Even if it is unpopular. Or considered divisive, or considered argumentative. I can only care what my Father in Heaven thinks of me. He reminds me there are 12 gates into the Kingdom. And not one of them has a denomination written on it.

      This isn’t to say the body of believers cannot fellowship. Quite the contrary. Iron sharpens iron. We all see through a glass darkly, so we need to bring the Sword of Truth whenever He calls us to walk in the Light He has given us. Each of us is walking in whatever Light He has blessed us with, in love, as plain and clear as possible. And the amount of Light is different for each person. We need not be afraid to speak the Truth. And those on the receiving end must test all things through Him, and not react in the flesh. This applies to all of us. We are to test all things. Not lean on our own understanding.

      Yeshua did not come to bring peace. He came to bring a Sword. I long for the day when the body of Yeshua will be of ONE Spirit, in Him.

      I pray Yah has His Hands over every person’s heart that visits this blog. That He stirs them to seek Him first in every single matter presented, and discussed here, as He is Faithful and True and will never mislead us. I pray the Holy Spirit will move each and every single person to question every doctrine, every claim before His Holy Throne, and that He will give them the Faith to believe He will answer them by two or three witnesses, leaving them with no doubt as to the Truth on any given matter. I sincerely pray He rebukes the Jezebel Spirit that works through many people in these days. I bless, praise and thank you Heavenly Father, in Yeshua’s precious, Holy Name.

    correction:

    the 4th paragraph should read:

    This isn’t to say the body of believers cannot fellowship. Quite the contrary. Iron sharpens iron. We all see through a glass darkly, so we need to bring the Sword of Truth whenever He calls us to walk in the Light He has given us, in love, as plain and clear as possible.

    Forgive me – it’s very late here and when I edited this paragraph – I moved a sentence and it got mixed up …I published without noticing it….again…it’s late. Yah bless.

    Now thanks be to God who…through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death to death, and to the other the aroma of life to life. (2 Corinthians 2:14-16)

    LisaUK and JohnB,

    We will be judged by Jesus for our attitude toward the Jewish people in the last days.

    If God does not unconditionally keep all of His promises to Israel, how can you assume He will keep them to you?
    Are you better than the Jews?

    You both forget that the Jewish people

    “HAVE BEEN BLINDED FOR A TIME UNTIL THE FULNESS OF THE GENTILES IS COME IN.”

    Can you not wait for God until He removes their blindness and they too will acknowledge their Messiah?

    • Late Night Lisa said

      They don’t understand the “Mystery”. Everything else they have nailed down in regards to remaining “in Christ” & “in the Vine”.

      Pray & trust in the Lord that the veil will be removed.

    • LisaUK said

      Janet In Israel,

      It is clear to me that you misunderstand me. Forgive me for not communicating it better.

      Let me be very clear:
      I love the Jews. I also love the people of the other tribes descending from Abraham, including the Muslims, and all people actually.
      I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
      I know that the Jews have been blinded until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in.
      So, no, I have not forgotten that the Jews have been blinded for a time. The fact remains, that the natural branches were cut off, and anyone who refuses to accept Yeshua as Messiah when the ‘blinders’ come off, will remain cut off. Hallelujah that many will recognise Him then, though!

      Janet, there is much false doctrine that has been cleverly weaved into the Truth. It is impossible to discern it for ourselves. You have jumped to a conclusion about my attitude towards Jews. Where did I say anything against Jews? I have not Janet. Please be careful before you accuse me or anyone else.

      The enemy is hard at work, trying to keep Yah’s truth from being seen. He accomplishes this through subtle perversion of the truth, through false doctrines. It is prophesied this will happen in these latter days, so it’s not surprising, but sometimes it’s hard to see the Truth when wading through all the lies. I have had a long, hard road back to Yeshua and I am not letting go.

      Yeshua warned us there are fake jews (they are not r.e.a.l. jews but of the synagogue of satan). He warned us Twice, so, as I said earlier – I agree with dr Yulish about those fake guys NOT being real Jews. It is a horrible thing that people will want to hate anyone.

      LNL, what ‘ Mystery’ is it that you think I don’t understand? Please share.

      Yah bless and keep you both.

    • John B said

      Janet In Israel, lateNight.

      I have no animosity towards any man. the problem is as LizaUk stated there is a prideful arrogance where by Jews are considered The people of god I have personally heard Jewish messianic theologians refer To themselves and their flock as Us Christian Jews and them gentile Jews this kind of pride is no different to the catholic who do the same in their own heart thinking themselves above the rest among believers in Jesus Christ. That Is EVIL.

      Concerning the Mystery to which you say that I have no understanding in the light of Vs26 following Vs25 Paul explains The mystery very clearly the VS26 Is a Quote from Isiah59:20,21….. which the messianic group and others claim to be futuristic that when Christ returns He is to save the Jews (who by the way will be in unbelief) That is a contradiction to the gospel in itself.

      That is not what Paul is saying at all! He is Quoting the Prophet to Show that the the deliverer has come and has made A covenant With them and it is This way that all Israel will be saved The prophecy is in the Past tense “messiah has come” Jews are still being saved today are they not! The one and only covenant prophesied by Isiah Is fulfilled is it not! There is no new covenant to be made With unbelieving Jews When Christ returns

      Christians who preach this LIE of a second covenant of mercy are in their own right also behind the rebuilding of the Third temple which is an Abomination in the Sight of Almighty God, For It denies the very covenant(eternal) prophesied By Isiah and fulfilled By The Blood Of Our Lord.

      When paul said “and -SO- all Israel will be saved” He is referring to the (Way of entering into the everlasting covenant by faith That Is what he explains By Quoting the Prophet in Vs26 it has nothing to do with a particular Time At Christ’s return. It is (How and not when), He does not use the sentence And Then all Israel will be saved He says and SO or THUS All Israel will be saved.

      he also said in chapter 9:6 which should be read In conjunction with Chapter10 11 That “Not all Israel is Israel” and that the promise was not to the Race bu to the remnant Vs27,28.

      And that is the way it has been happening since the gospel is preached to both Jews And gentiles “bringing the two into one The commonwealth of Israel” Gal2:12-17

      Did you Know that there are some messianic Theologians who want the Book of Galatians omitted from the new Testament because it does not suit their theology of restoration.

      I hope and pray that what I have said here is Clear enough To understand. I think A willingness to go back to the scriptures quoted above without a preconceived train of thought will give the insight, unless of course there be a theological Stronghold in the mind! in that case until such time as deliverance from it is sought then One will believe what the theology has implanted in the mind and people will believe what they want to believe.

      p.s. Janet, I just re-read your first statement:

      “If God does not unconditionally keep all of His promises to Israel, how can you assume He will keep them to you?
      Are you better than the Jews?”

      My reply:

      Janet, is it safe to assume that you believe ‘Israel’ is exclusively ‘Jews’?

      I know many believe this, but it is not true. I’m trying to make sure we are speaking under the same definition of who is who.
      Jews are Judah. Israel is Ephraim – scattered. Both have promises from the Most High and will be joined together again (Ezekiel).

      In any case, no, I do not think I’m ‘better than the Jews’, to answer your question.

    Zechariah 12
    1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

    2Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

    3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

    4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

    5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

    6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.

    7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.

    8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

    9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

    10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

    11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

    12And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

    13The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

    14All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

      Wow! Powerful stuff. Thank you Janet in Israel. I will pray for Israel with your words in mind. Hoping you will offer a prayer for us too.

    Sandra,
    Total surrender a the foot of the Cross to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the key. Being totally yielded to Him and keeping our eyes on Him brings us to true love and humility in our relationship with Jesus Christ. We truly begin to walk with Jesus Christ and understand the things of His Father Creator God as His only begotten Son did. This is where true victory in Jesus begins! Nothing else in this world is as precious.

    Hurricane Season & The BP Oil Rig Disaster
    By Dave Lindorff
    5-1-10

    One thing you don’t hear much mention of in all the coverage of the BP oil rig blowout that is now pouring 210,000 gallons of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico, just a few dozen miles off the coast of Louisiana, is the 2010 hurricane season, which officially starts on June 1, but which can start significantly earlier.

    This is, after all, an El Nino year, so storms could be more frequent and stronger than usual. In 2007, recall, the first storm of the season was Tropical Storm Andrea, which reached a size strong enough to merit a name on May 7, just a week later than today.

    Why does this matter? Because any attempt to use booms or chemicals keep the oil away from the Gulf Coast would be completely impossible in the event of a major storm entering the Gulf. The combination of high winds, storm surges and high waves would push the oil slick way inland up the bayous and onto the shelter islands that protect 40 percent of America’s wetlands.

    It could do worse, too. The strong winds in hurricanes, sweeping across the surging waves they have created, such up a considerable amount of surface water and blow it inland. This time, however, those winds could also end up picking up a considerable amount of the oil slick floating on the sea’s surface, which would be deposited as rain well inland, damaging croplands and forests, too…

    More good news…NOT:

    From emergency web site:

    A major pipe bringing water to the Boston area has sprung a “catastrophic” leak and is dumping eight million gallons of water per hour into the Charles River. Governor Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency and issued a “boil-water” order for Boston and dozens of other communities. “The water is not suitable for drinking. … All residents in impacted communities should boil drinking water before consuming it,” he said at a news conference this afternoon. Patrick said the state had asked bottled water companies to make more water available in the state and emergency drinking water supplies could also be made available to the affected communities through the National Guard. “I ask everyone to check in on elderly or vulnerable neighbors,” he said, and he asked people to avoid “unnecessary use of water, such as washing cars and lawnwatering.” The break is in a 10-foot-diameter pipe on Recreation Road in Weston, the authority said in a statement. “That is a catastrophic break and we are currently activating the reserves,” said MWRA spokeswoman Ria Convery. MWRA officials said nearly two million people would be affected in 30 cities and towns. People flocked to stores to buy bottled water when they heard the news. In Lexington, an hourlong run on water cleared a supermarket’s shelves. In Boston, Mayor Thomas M. Menino declared a state of emergency and took a number of steps to inform residents, including reverse 911 calls and sending officers into the streets with bullhorns. Downtown restaurateurs declared the boil order a major inconvenience. The failed tunnel connects the MetroWest Tunnel to the much older City Tunnel, as water flows east through the suburbs from reservoirs in central Massachusetts towards Boston, officials said. MWRA Executive Director Fred Laskey said the leak began between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. today and the pipe continued to break until it failed “catastrophically.”

    Margaret, I could not stomach watching the video to its completion ,watching him give a speech gives me complete nausea, and id like to keep my dinner down, however, I don’t know about this happening in the future, for me its here now.
    On my street alone there is over 10 different nationalities, (I know this as I’m on the board of directors for the area, and need to communicate with them during emergencies such as hurricane warnings)
    Many on my street do not speak English at all, making it extremely difficult to convey emergency procedures.
    Near my home, there are two Buddhist temples, three Mosques and one Hindu temple. All of these are located within less then 3 miles from me.
    The future he speaks of is now a reality
