ODDS AND ENDS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
With events erupting around the world with increasing speed, and because we are told in Hosea 4:6 - "My (Israel) people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: (notice not a lack of education, but a lack of knowledge, for education without God, turns men into clever devils!) because. thou, hast rejected knowledge (truth), I will also reject thee..."
This lack of knowledge seems strange in a world the Prophet Daniel predicted in Daniel 12:4 as a "time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." (The Hebrew word for KNOWLEDGE as used here is "da'wath" and means: "cunning, as having skill, being skillful or clever.) So we can see that all knowledge is not necessarily good, as it can be manipulated by the adversary for his own evil purpose.
In this short paper, I want to bring to your attention some little know facts, coming from usually reliable sources around the world, to show you what is taking place that is not mentioned in the controlled press.
When a Christian couple in Charlottesville, Virginia was refused an Ad in a local newspaper, because they were looking for a "Christian woman to help in their home", it's time for us to ask the question. Is America still Christian, or have we become for all practical purposes, heathen?
Why is it that our Public Schools no longer display the Stamp Act Resolution in their history textbooks, where Patrick Henry, a much admired citizen of Virginia, who was the only man reelected five times as Governor said, "It cannot be emphasized strongly enough, that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospels of Jesus Christ. It is for this reason that people of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom to worship here."
In 1799, the Supreme Court of Maryland ruled: "By our form of government the Christian religion is the established religion, and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed upon equal footing and are equally entitled to the protection of their religious liberty."
In no place in our government archives, are heathen, non-Christian religions placed on an equal footing with Christianity, which is the established religion of America. They are allowed by law, but they are not America's Religion. (If we were following Scriptural teachings, they would not be allowed in the country.)
Suppose Your Family Had a Holocaust Era Insurance Policy
and You Just Didn't Know About It?
If you are a Holocaust survivor or the heir of a Holocaust victim, you may have a legitimate unpaid Holocaust era life, education or dowry insurance claim and the opportunity exists for you to receive payment You can now file claims through a new Claims Resolution Process set up by the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Commission.
The Commission consists of representatives of United States insurance regulators, five European insurance companies and their subsidiaries, the State of Israel, worldwide Jewish and Holocaust survivors organizations and European regulators as Observers.
The unique Claims Resolution Process provides individuals with a central source for information on, investigations into, and payment of those outstanding policies, without any charge to the claimants.
In all the confusion generated by Holocaust teaching and efforts by Christian leaders to get persecuted Jews, from Russia to America, William Safire, the "NEW YORK TIMES" correspondent and former Reagan Administration insider, and a Jew himself, reported in his National column: "Russian Jews have nothing to hide!" He goes on in great detail to explain the advantage of being a Jew in Russia, and brags that the richest millionaires and billionaires are Jews. So are the most powerful politicians, such as former Russia Foreign Ministry Yeugeny Primakov, whose real name was Finkelstein.
Moscow Mayor, Yuri Luslhov, a presidential hopeful, recently put on a skull cap and attended Synagogue in Moscow. He is a Jew. The media mogul, Vladmir Gasinski, who controls a media empire equal to NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN, is Jewish and is one of the richest men on earth.
Yet we find Christian leaders like Pat Boone, Jack Van Impe, Pat Robertson, and Jerry Falwell who send out Fund raising letters to American Christians asking them for financial help in bringing, poor, persecuted Jews from Russia to the sanctuary of America. Safire notes: "Today in Russia, Jews are a much favored minority, just as they were in the early days of Soviet Communism under Vladmir Lenin." (From "Power of Prophecy", March 2000).

THE CIVIL WAR PLOT TO DIVIDE AMERICA!
Samuel Morse, the inventor of the Morse Code was in London on business which had to do with his wireless invention. On a certain morning in 1859, according to his account in a book published in 1862, titled "TO DISSOLVE THE AMERICAN UNION", he stated that something happened which was of such significance that it needs to be understood today.
A message coming in over the wire attracted his attention and he decided to make a copy of it for his records. It attracted his attention because it had special significance for his country America. It was sent from one powerful International financial operator in Europe to another and dealt with details concerning tariffs, prices, wages, shipping costs, and government expenses. It also exposed a plot to start a war between the North and South in America, with the prospect of dividing the country into two entities, which could be more easily controlled by the Internationalists. It took four years for the plan to develop and the conspiracy to mature. His book deals with this conspiracy which foretold the American Civil War, which was fought over the slavery issue. It gives details about how hostilities were promoted.
In 1858, Baron Solomon Rothschild (a Jew), came to the United States and secretly began to direct and finance the efforts for a war which was to be the most destructive in America's history. The plot was accomplished primarily by the manipulation of tariffs and commodities. Exports of cotton from the South to England and other parts of Europe were the principal source of foreign exchange which paid for foreign imports coming into the States.
Business interests in the North and East insisted on higher tariffs, and used the revenues generated to defray most of the costs of the Federal Government. The public debt was paid off; current expenses were being met, and highways, railroads, canals, and other public efforts were being made for the benefit primarily of the North. This and State sovereignty, was the basic elements against which the South rebelled, not slavery as we have been told.
The attempts by the International Jewish banks to divide the American Union was unsuccessful due mainly to the courage and intelligence of a country boy from Kentucky named Abe Lincoln. In spite of what we Southerners have been told about him, he took the Internationalists completely by surprise with his ability to understand their scheming.
Lincoln's statements which today have been conveniently left out of history textbooks bring out this truth. He said, "The enemy behind me, is worse than the enemy in front of me. The money power groups prey on the nation in times of peace, and conspire against them in times of adversity. It denounces as public enemies, all who question it's methods or throw light upon it's crimes."
In the middle eighteen hundreds, the European bankers, Jewish for the most part, were connected to the powerful Rothschild family, and had considerable influence in America. One of the men Morse discovered in the plot had a branch bank in New York called Belmont and Co., while another in Atlanta was called Erlinger and Co. These two banks had promoted many State banks in both the North and South, and worked with them for the passage of the National Bank Act of 1863. When Lincoln needed more money to carry out the war, he was offered loans by these groups at 28% interest. He wrote to a Chicago friend, a Colonel Richard Taylor, who was an authority on finance: "Dick, they have me over a barrel. What can I do? Colonel Taylor wrote back: " I think I see a way out for you. In fact I believe it will give you the upper hand. You know the U.S. government has the authority to issue money under Sec. 8, Par S of the Constitution. I suggest you invoke this clause of the Constitution and authorize Congress to print and issue the amount of money you need. This will not cost the government a cent, because it will be interest free. Then tell them to go jump in the river."
Lincoln took his advise and issued 150 million dollars designated as U.S. Notes, and often referred to greenbacks.
The part about telling the bankers to go jump in the river, was more difficult, since these fellows exerted a lot of power in the country. By the time Lincoln was ready for a second issue of greenbacks, the bakers had so corrupted, or intimidated Congress, that they passed what was called the Exception Clause, which prohibited Lincoln from issuing any more interest free notes. A short time later he was dead at the hands of an assassin (who was an agent of Rothschild's) and a period of terror known as Reconstruction took place in the South which spawned such organizations as the Ku Klux Klan.
It has been revealed from reliable sources that the Rothschild's made over four billion dollars profit over the Civil War, while this country gained absolutely nothing from the war but misery, destruction, and the death of 360,000 of our finest and a legacy of hatred which is still haunting us. As in other Jew instigated wars, the anti-Christ's made money by supporting both sides.
Those who plotted to dissolve the Union, are with us today in the Federal Reserve System, the Tri-Lateralists, the Council on Foreign Relations, and those who are dedicated to the aims of the Zionist New World Order.
In 1871, the German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck said, according to reliable sources, "It is not to be doubted, I know of an absolute certainty, that the division of the United States into two federations of equal power had been decided on well in advance of the Civil War by the top financial powers of Europe.
They are still engaged in a plan to Balkanize America for their own profit.

SEARCH FOR THE HISTORICAL JESUS!
For over a century now, humanistic scholars have searched for what they call the historic Jesus They of course dismiss all Biblical accounts of His life, His miracles and view everything within the limitations of human flesh. They assume that what the Bible says about Him just doesn't fit in with the reality to First Century events. Thus, their Jesus ends up looking much like themselves.
Today He is universally being pictured as being Black, or swarthy like an Edomite Jew. Word descriptions of His appearance, written by Pontius Pilate to Augustus Caesar, and kept in the Vatican Library in Rome, are disregarded. These, the only eye witness descriptions of Him that are know, picture. Him as having chestnut hair and blue eyes. As Albert Switzer, the well known African missionary of a century ago once said, "Scholars looked down the well of history, and have mistaken their own reflections for that of Jesus." (B.P.) So if they are Black, He must have been Black. That is their reasoning, without any proof!

LIBERAL BRILLIANCE ON NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY!
The World Federation Association annually presents it's top award, the Norman Cousins Global Government Award, to a person chosen from their ranks who has done the most for the advancement of One World Government during the year. This past October, they chose Walter Cronkite, the CBS guru, who seeing man take his first step on the moon pontificated: "Today, man the ape, conquers space!"
The one time CBS, anchorman and the grand old man of controlled press, in an acceptance speech at the United Nations, called on America to give up it's sovereignty. He was applauded by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, and by enthusiastic applause from the U.N. delegates. The 1992 winner, Strobe Talbot, is a close long time friend of the Clinton's and number two man in the State Department. He was so pro-Communist and pro-Soviet, that the F.B.I. classified him as a security risk. (Spotlight)

FACTS FOR DISASTER!
In late 1999, a piece of pro-humanistic propaganda was sent to 15,000 Public School Districts in America. It was a 12 Page booklet titled "JUST THE FACTS!", published by a coalition of the National Education Association, and nine other activist groups. It is the brainchild of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network. This piece of trash tells your children that the life styles of Sodom and Gomorrah is normal and healthy and attacks efforts by people who are trying to help homosexuals escape their sinful bondage. The American Academy of Pediatricians has now endorsed this booklet and has attacked the Christian faith, which is the only hope of freedom from this monstrosity that brings spiritual death. (AP/PWB/AFRN)

Prominent researcher. and pollster,. George Barnes, a born again Christian, says that increasingly in America, Christians are becoming Biblically illiterate. He said, "They don't even know who and what they are!"
In a survey, when asked, "Who preached the Ssp;
The reason for this ignorance should be obvious. Most churches no longer preach and teach from the Bible, and when they do it has become a sort of cafeteria religion, where only those parts that make the congregation feel good are used. There is very little of reproving and rebuking done in the modern church. Jeremiah 23:22 says it all, "But if they (the preachers) had stood in my (God's) counsel, and had caused my people (Israel) to hear my words, then they should have turned from their evil ways, and from the evil of their doings." This hasn't happened in America, and can be seen in the fact that with over 50 million born again people in America, we are heading to hell faster than at any time in our history.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO TOLERANCE?
The Christian world has been barraged by direct mailing from Jewish front groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, of Maurice Dees, a Christ hater of the first order. Who admonishes the Christian world to teach tolerance. This has come to mean: "We must permit the teaching of homosexuality in Kindergarten classes and other perverted life styles dreamed up by these fanatics, even though they are against everything taught in God's Word. Most of this teaching is coming direct from the Jewish Congress and their strong are boys of the Anti Defamation League (A.D.L). The question that needs to be asked, is where is the tolerance shown by these anti-Christ groups towards anything Christian or decent? It is nonexistent!
When it comes to the Zionist New World Order, there is no tolerance. You accept what they propose or you are earmarked for destruction and they even have the chutzpah to openly brag about it.
Let's say that Pat Buchanan was elected President of the United States and refused to carry out the New World Order mandates of the Zionist Council of XIII. Would he be threatened and humiliated because he rejected United Nations membership? You can bet on it! Just the idea of being conservative, especially if you are a Christian, is enough to set these anti-Christ's frothing at the mouth. World Zionism at this point cannot allow any interference with their plans for a New World Order, for if a crack develops in their defense, the floodwaters of freedom and decency will pour through and drown them.
Are you as a genuine Christian ready to lie down supinely and submit to the life of a slave, on their New World Order Plantation?

THE WITCH WHO WANTED TO BE QUEEN!
Hillary Rodham Clinton has finally made it official. She wants to be Senatrix from New York, although she has shown by her actions that she does not especially like to endure their maldoranant presence.
The one unforgivable sin to New Yorkers, is that of being an ostentatious phony, and Hillary flaunts her phoniness, as though it were a prime qualification for the job.
Recently on the David Letterman Show, she came across as one who was born to wear the mantle of phoniness. (After the show poor Letterman was rushed to the hospital for a quintuple bypass. No kidding! Whether it was caused by Hillary's answers is problematical!).
She has devoted her life to the defense of children, or so she says, and look what happened at WACO, where they killed 17 of them to protect them from a evil man, who was not all that evil. In fact he was not nearly as evil as the devil who now runs Cuba.
When Letterman asked Hillary what we should do with Elian Gonzales, she turned her eyes heavenward and sighed: "We must do what is best for the boy!" Anyone who knows Hillary and how she thinks, knows this means: "We must do what is best politically, and what our Masters want us to do!"
Reno, the lesbian witch of WACO (just study her face sometime and see the evilness inherent there), pontificates about the sacredness of the family, which must be upheld by returning the boy to his father. Maybe the best answer to this problem would be to exchange Reno for Elian. We would be getting the best bargain, and Reno would be valuable to Castro in telling him how to burn churches and Christians, who disagree with his evilness.
I found a perfect Scriptural description of Bill Clinton and Hillary in 1 Kings 21:25; just change the names and you come up with this truism: "But there was no President like Bill Clinton, in the ordsory of America, who sold himself to work evil in the sight of the Lord, whom Hillary his wife stirred up."
She began her education for treason early, as head of a Chapter of the notorious Institute of Policies Study at Yale University. The I.P.S. was exposed by the F.B.I. as one of the most dangerous Communist radical groups in America.
Hillary is compelled to defend Castro, since her husbands foreign policy has been one of complete appeasement of our Communist enemies everywhere and we all know about the financial help he received from Red China. Whenever a national leader like John F. Kennedy, begins to wise up to what is happening, the powers that be usually eliminate them before they can tell the public about the danger. It happened to Kennedy, General Patton, Secretary of Navy Forestahl, and very possible Senator Robert Taft, to name a few.
Hillary can be counted to do anything necessary so the New World Order, her husband worships can succeed. Let's pray that the New York voters are intelligent, and patriotic enough to reject her at the polls. She qualifies as one of the homeless, rootless, dreamers who have turned the 20th Century into a nightmare, while drenching the world in blood. (Info. from Criminal Politics, February 29, 2000.)

RELIGIOUS LEFT AND THE GAY AGENDA!
Tony Compolo, one of the most prominent spokesmen for the religious left, a movement of left wing liberal clergy who defend sociological rather then Biblical solutions to the nation's problems, is President Clinton's Spiritual Advisor, and sponsors Gay homosexual rallies at the Founding Memorial Methodist Church, in Washington, DC which is the church the Clinton's attend. Tony's wife, Peggy, is emerging as a prominent spokeswoman for gay activist groups and openly claims that homosexual behsighr is compatible with Biblical Christianity, although the Bible is very outspoken against this hideous sin. (See Romans 1:21-31; Ephesians 4:18,19.) These people are now approving Clinton's backing the gay lifestyle, and are being supported whole heartedly by the Jew controlled press. What will they do one day, when they stand naked before an angry God? (FRC)

The average American taxpayer is now surrendering 50% of their income for taxes, of one sort or another. This means we work until June each year to satisfy the demands of the government which has become adept at squandering it, or giving it away.
By comparison, the medieval serf, whom we consider to have been virtual slaves, paid out less than 33% of their wages. The vast amount of this is going into the pockets of the International Jewish Bankers, who control our economy through the Federal Reserve Board.

SWAMPED BY ALIENS!
We like to think of America, as the land of the free, but we are fast becoming slaves to the uncontrolled tide of immigrants who are swarming America. In the 1800's, over 40 million came to our shores, but they were mostly from the White nations of Christendom. They followed the Christian religion, they had a passionate love for freedom, they believed and protected their women, and believed in the work ethic!
Today, under Democratic Party leadership, they are coming from heathen countries, bringing their heathen religions, morals, and diseases to America, and many are ending on welfare rolls, as wards of the State.
In Deuteronomy 28:33 we are told that if we refuse to obey God, "The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not, eat up..." In verse 43,44" The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thee shalt come down very low... he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail." If you can't see this happening in America, it's because you have deliberately shut your eyes to what is happening all around you.
There are now over 10 million illegal immigrants in America, with thousands flocking across our mostly unguarded southern border every day. While our President sends American troops overseas on illegal ventures which interfere with national sovereignty, our southern border is virtually unprotected. Congress will not even give the Border Patrol enough money for manpower and equipment, while they pour billions down the Israeli rathole.
Norman Goldstein, a top Social Security official, who deals with many fraudulent claims by illegals, has said, "We never assume immigration fraud!" How naive can you be? Is this deliberate treason?
Big business, which means Jewish controlled business, is cooperating with the Democratic Party to flood America with cheap slave labor. It means more money in their pockets, and they care less about the hundreds of thousands of Americans who our out of work. On political front, the Democratic Party knows that most of these aliens, who have been allowed in through their efforts, will vote the straight Democratic ticket and keep them in power. It is a typical example of the Babylonian System in operation in every phase of American life.
The head of the A.F.L./C.I.O. has openly endorsed a general amnesty for the illegals now in this country. While Big Business claims there are not enough computer programmers and engineers to fill America's needs, instead of training American youth to fill the jobs, they are hiring cheaper, inferior labor from India. It is all a matter of the big bucks over everything else, or as the Jews say, "The gelts the most important thing!"

NOW AFTER THIS GLOOMY OUTLOOK, SOME GOOD NEWS!
In Psalms 46:4-8 we read: "There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. There is an entire volume of history in those three sentences, and it is in correct order. Contrast this with verse 7 - "The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge." Emphasize the word US, for it refers to you if you are an Israelite. It is a tremendous claim, and not all can rightfully claim it.
During the convulsions which will come to this material world during the Day of the Lord, this verse tells us that God will keep Zion firmly in place.
There is no boasting here, but it is cause for songs in the night and rejoicing in the morning But this is not all notice in verse 8 - "Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolation's he hath made in the earth." This is a call by the prophet for Israel to leave their chambers, after being protected by God, to view the destruction He has unleashed on the wicked and from which she was saved. A real cause for rejoicing.
This is almost an exact duplication of the passages in Isaiah 2:4; Micah 4:3, which were written about 740 B.C. Here we see a final end to war which has devastated mankind from the beginning. "He (God) maketh wars to cease unto the ends of the earth.
When the wicked have been punished, and war instrument destroyed then God will call on His people verge 10 - "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."
What is the meaning of this wonderful Psalm? Is it all bombast and froth? No indeed! It cannot be, for it is not the boasting of men, but the hope and expectations of God's called prophet, who sees these things happening in Israel's future, and who is confident in the help God will give His people in a mighty and unparalleled deliverance.
When the morning comes, and the deliverance is seen, that is when the millennial rule of our king will begin.
Where is this city? Who does it refer to? It is not heaven, as heaven is God's abode and needs no miracle to keep it safe. No convulsions on this earth can ever upset the pillars of God's abode. Nor is there any sense in saying that God will help heaven. This is ridiculous!
It is speaking about a time, a people, and a country here on earth, for immediately afterwards in verse 8 it says: "Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolation's he (God) hath made in the earth."
It is definitely speaking about God's people, who most certainly are not the anti-Christ's now residing in Palestine. It can not be said of them: "God is in the midst of them!" (According to their own statistics, most of them are atheists who do not even follow Judaism!)
Without the shadow of a doubt, this verse refers to true Israel, and not to those who now claim to be God's Chosen, but whom our risen Savior referred to in Revelations 2:9, 3;9, as "They who say they are Jews (Judeans), and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan."
There are scores of references in the Bible to God dwelling in the midst of Israel. He did it literally in the tabernacle of the wilderness, Exodus 33:9,10. There is no record of Him dwelling with any people other than Israel. He never dwelt with the colored races. This can be seen, in Amos 3:2, where we read, God is speaking: "You (Israel) only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. God punishes those who belong to Him. (See Hebrews 12:6,8.)
In Joel 2:27, the prophet says, "And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed." (In spite of all their wanderings and disobedience, God has always been the God of Israel.) In Zephaniah 3:15 "The Lord hath taken away the judgments (Hebrew "mispat", meaning "penalty"), he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more."
Zechariah 2:10 - "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for lo, I come, and I (God) will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord." (Surely God will not dwell with a people who call His precious Son an illegitimate bastard!)
Ezekiel 34:30 - "Thus shall they know that I the Lord their God am with them, and that they (Who? The Gentile church? NO!), even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord God.
Was the prophet speaking about something that had already happened to the Israel people? No, his prophesy is in the future tense and for the future.
Read Ezekiel 28:24-26. These statements are so wonderfully decisive, they are utterly delightful.
We now know who this city represents. It is God's own favored, long loved Israel. "God is in the midst of her and will help her!" In the margin of some Bibles it says: "God shall help her when the morning appeareth!" How very strange!
If we examine the Ferrar-Fenton translation, it takes on an even more wonderful meaning: "God shall comfort her (Israel) at the break of day." What can this possible mean?
I believe it refers to all Anglo-Saxondom, who are the only people who bear the fingerprints of true Israel, in the closing out days of this age, and others who accept Christ and become adopted Israelites who are obedient to God. (No apologies to those in Identity who believe that only Israelites will be saved. Your argument is not with me, but with God's Word.)
In Isaiah 26:20, Israel was given specific orders for the terrible days of God's wrath: "Come, my people (written to Israel alone), enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation (Day of Lord's wrath) be overpast."
Israel will be hiding, as she did in Egypt centuries ago, when the death angel passed over Egypt (see Exodus 12).
She will be saved from the convulsions of nature, (the tidal waves and earthquakes) which devastate the earth, and in the morning, when it is all over, they will be overcome with joy at their marvelous deliverance, and will dance with delight and gratitude. "For God Himself will comfort them at the break of day!"
I believe this will be the time and manner of Israel's prophesied conversion. The people, moved by one common impulse will flock the places of worship which are still standing, not to celebrate as 50 many do now, but to worship Him, and dedicate themselves wholly and forever to their God, for their wonderful, and undeserved preservation. They will recognize that it was not their righteousness that saved them, but God's mercy for His Israel people.
This is strikingly shown in Isaiah 27:9 - "By this will Jacob's (Israel's) sin cured. It's evil fruit set aside; His stone altar burnt and turned to lime, nor groves and idols raised again," (F.F.)
Other passages indicate that every man, woman, and child in Israel will be saved in one day.
Zechariah 3:9 - "I (God) will remove the iniquity of that land in one day." Isn't it remarkable how Babylon will be destroyed in one day, while Israel will be saved?
Isaiah 47:9 - "God speaking about Babylon says: "These two things come to thee in a moment, in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood."
Revelations 18:8 prophesies of the Babylonian System: "Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, and she shall be utterly burned with fire." This will be the destruction of the Economic System under which we now languish.
Now take a close look at Israel's salvation, Hosea 14:4 - "I (God) will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for my anger is turned away from him (Israel).
The time of Zion's agony will be short, a day, a moment, in one day, "God comforts her at the break of day."
Jeremiah tells us that the time will come (future), when every man, woman, and child in Israel will know the Lord, and it will take a divine miracle to accomplish this. Jeremiah 31:33.34 -"This shall be the covenant I (God) will make with the house of Israel; after those days, saith the Lord. I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall no more teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and will remember their sins no more." (This seems pretty positive to me!) How can a Christian preacher such as Jack Van Impe, take this wonderful promise given to us, and try and hand it over to anti-Christs?
This is one of the most amazing covenants of the Bible and it was not made with Jews, or the church, but with physical Israel and no one in the whole world, the Pope, Billy Graham, or any TV evangelist has the right or blessing of God to give it to anyone else.
Then comes an unparalleled claim, for the second time it bursts forth amid all the uproar and confusion and the punishment of the wicked. This is that there will be a people exempt from God's anger for "The Lord of Hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our refuge!"
The personal pronouns us and ours refer to a certain people who must certainly be Israel, since no other people on earth meet their Scriptural qualifications.
If this interpretation of Scripture is correct. If this miraculous national preservation and conversion of Israel does take plade, as His word predicts it is difficult for our finite minds to comprehend. How in the midst of Israel's present love of pleasure, and their disobedience, can this revival take place? I don't know, but I am sure it will come, for God's Word says it will! (Taken in part from Chapter 10, "THE NEW WORLD COMING", by Pastor Henry D. Houghton, with some editorial license.)

WHAT WILL BE YOUR REACTION?
Some may be tempted to say, "If all Israel will be saved, why are we worrying over the present condition of our country?" This is a similar reaction I received from a Judeo-Christian pastor who said, "Why waste time polishing brass on a sinking ship? When I spoke to him about the Christian's responsibility for the moral and spiritual conditions of the country.
"Get men and women saved, and they will change the country," he said. Besides, this world is not our home, we are just passing through. In his typical hypocrisy, he was not even interested in the condition of the life boats.
We must take an active stand against sin, because our King commanded us to do so: "Occupy until I come!" He said. (The Greek word for Occupy is "pragmatenomai" and means: "Busy your self.") As Christian soldiers, who have been given the armament of Ephesians 6, we do not have the option of settling down in a comfortable spiritual foxhole, while the evil rages outside, and we wait for Jesus to rapture us out of the mess caused by our Christian apathy.
In order to be obedient sons and daughters of the King we must Occupy, always keeping in mind that obedience to God and the discipline it brings, must come before we can have victory.
Until next time may the Father richly bless and protect you. Your brother and servant in the King's business,
