March 24, 1976: Ford Orders Swine-Flu Shots for All: FLASHBACK

Past Expiry Cartoon


Courtesy of

Does anyone remember when President Ford, in March of 1976, ordered Swine Flu shots for everyone when a soldier at Ft. Dix was diagnosed as having Swine Flu and died 24 hours later?

There was no epidemic then as perceived. Following is the story from Wired, which makes me wonder what the government's purpose for this present Swine Flu 'epidemic' is. Nationalized Health Care? Martial Law? Create a constant state of panic and then the government will come in and rescue everyone? Distract the masses with a bogus swine flu epidemic while sneaking in other contraversial and socialistic programs such as Hate Crimes? Is the government testing the people's reaction and response to this virus as the propaganda goes out through the air waves to determine how much control the government has over the people?

There is alot of misinformation and inaccurate information being floated around with alot of media hype to keep this thing stirred.The Center for Disease Control website has reported that an average of 36,000 people die of regular flu related symptoms a year, and the WHO is not recommending travel restrictions because of this virus, (but then the WHO is not interested in saving lives, but is more involved in population control) so why is the Obama media hyping the Swine flu now?

Of course, it's only wise and common sense for people to do everything within their own power to stay healthy and protect themselves and their families from the Swine flu and any virus, but it is obvious there is disinformation and inaccurate and incompetent data coming out of Homeland Security and the Obama Administration with "mixed messages" designed to confuse the masses irregardless of what the media hype wants you to believe; remember the teachings of Jesus "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

As I have said before, the borders between Mexico and the United States have not been shut down; until they are, I do not believe anything coming out of the controlled media or the Obama government pertaining to the Swine flu. People are not dropping like flies with this virus, and all in the United States have recovered as of this writing. All they have done thus far is create needless concern in the United States of America over this virus to promote their health care and other agenda(s).
  • For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

    Read the story and judge for yourself.
    1976: President Gerald Ford orders a nationwide vaccination program to prevent a swine-flu epidemic.

    Ford was acting on the advice of medical experts, who believed they were dealing with a virus potentially as deadly as the one that caused the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic.
    The virus surfaced in February at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where 19-year-old Pvt. David Lewis told his drill instructor that he felt tired and weak, although not sick enough to skip a training hike. Lewis was dead with 24 hours.

    The autopsy revealed that Lewis had been killed by "swine flu," an influenza virus originating in pigs. By then several other soldiers had been hospitalized with symptoms. Government doctors became alarmed when they discovered that at least 500 soldiers on the base were infected without becoming ill.

    It recalled 1918, when infected soldiers returning from the trenches of World War I triggered a contagion that spread quickly around the world, killing at least 20 million people. Fearing another plague, the nation's health officials urged Ford to authorize a mass inoculation program aimed at reaching every man, woman and child. He did, to the tune of $135 million ($500 million in today's money).

    Mass vaccinations started in October, but within weeks reports started coming in of people developing Guillain-Barre syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease, right after taking the shot. Within two months, 500 people were affected, and more than 30 died. Amid a rising uproar and growing public reluctance to risk the shot, federal officials abruptly canceled the program on Dec. 16.

    In the end, 40 million Americans were inoculated, and there was no epidemic. A later, more technically advanced examination of the virus revealed that it was nowhere near as deadly as the 1918 influenza virus. The only recorded fatality from swine flu itself was the unfortunate Pvt. Lewis.

    History's verdict of the program is mixed. Critics assail Ford, accusing him of grandstanding during an election year -- it did him no good, because he lost anyway -- while kowtowing to the pharmaceutical companies. Supporters laud the ability of the nation's health bureaucracy to mobilize so effectively.

    Those who remembered 1918 probably consider it money well spent.

    Jesus said: Take heed that no man deceive you. Matthew 24:4

Strong Quake Strikes Central Mexico Swaying Buildings in Swine Flu Striken Mexico City

It feels like the Apocalypse says social worker Sarai Luna Pajas

A 5.6 earthquake has striken in central Mexico swaying buildings in Swine Flu striken Mexico City.

"We Mexicans are not used to living with so much fear, but all that is happening—the economic crisis, the illnesses and now this—it feels like the Apocalypse."

Co-worker Harold Gutierrez, 21, said the country was taking comfort from its religious faith, but he too was gripped by the sensation that the world might be coming to an end.

"If it is, it is God's plan," Gutierrez said, speaking over a green mask he wore to ward off swine flu. Story here

Please pray that this social worker and all Mexicans will open up a Bible and read the words of Jesus concerning the end times prophetic times we are living in that are indeed taking place in Mexico and around the world.

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows". Matthew 24:7,8

Swine Flu Outbreak Updates

I find it very unusual that while Drudge Headlines is reporting the following updates regarding the outbreak of Swine Flu, still nothing is being done to close the borders between Mexico and the United States of America where would be illegal alien carriers of the virus cross over the border from Mexico into America. I also think it very strange that it is being reported that there is no evidence of bio-terror. There are four different strains of flu virus involved here, never before seen that leads any competent medical professional to look at a man-made epidemic. Third, Communist and Marxist friendly leaning governments such as is seen in the United States of America create a crisis, and then bring in the perfect solution to the crisis they have created to further promote their agenda and to maintain their popularity.

How utterly stupid and useless. Giving custom officials protective clothing will not stop the virus from spreading once a would be carrier of this virus has crossed over the border from Mexico into the United States of America.

If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would certainly think that creating a flu pandemic to further bring down the economy of the United States of America and the entire world to promote Obama's New World Order scheme would be the ideal plan. But, then, I am not a conspiracy theorist. To give you a clearer perspective into what may be going on here, if you haven't read Live Avian Flu Virus Placed in Baxter Vaccine Materials Sent To 18 Counties that I reported about in March, I urge you to do so.

Now, from Drudge Report, here's those headlines:

JANET: EVENTS DO NOT WARRANT TESTING OF PLANE PASSENGERS FROM MEXICO...'NO EVIDENCE' OF BIO-TERROR...CALDERON TELLS MEXICANS TO STAY CALM, COOPERATE WITH AUTHORITIES...CDC RECOMMENDS PLANNING FOR SCHOOL CLOSURES...PIG SICK: NYC students...WHO: Swine flu could mutate to 'more dangerous' strain...Flu fears prompt quarantine plans...Mexico flu scare empties streets, churches, bars...CLOSE TO 1,600 SUSPECTED CASES...Russia Suspends Imports of Meat From Mexico, Some U.S. States...New swine flu likely widespread...Asia on alert...10 New Zealand students in scare... Mideast First: Israeli man hospitalized on suspicions...6 CASES CONFIRMED IN CANADA...Spain announces 3 suspected cases...

We need to be in fervent prayer for our Mexican friends that the Lord will halt the spread of sickness through this virus.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.Chronicles 7:14

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come....II Timothy 3:1

Secret Christian Church in Mecca

This is news to get excited about. The Lord Jesus Christ by His Holy Spirit is on the move in Mecca, Saudi Arabia where a Christian movement has been underway. A secret underground Christian church in Mecca has been flourishing, while tens of thousands of other Saudi Christians are worshipping via the Internet, a mission group confirmed Friday, April 24.

News of the secret church comes despite strict rules forbidding non-Muslims to enter Mecca where huge 'Muslim Only' traffic signs warn outsiders about these regulations, reported BosNewsLife's Dutch news partner

In addition, Bönker said, some 70,000 people are worshipping in what has been dubbed Saudi Arabia's 'Skype Church', a reference to an Internet program that allows people to communicate with each other via relative secure connections.Read about it here.

The church of Jesus Christ is being built. Satan nor any enemy will stop it, and the gates of hell won't hold out against it. Matthew 16:18

Swine Flu Outbreak

A new strain of swine flu outbreak mixed with avian strain, two swine strains and a human strain is causing concern among US medical authorities. The first thing that came to mind when I heard about this was a story I reported here in March of this year where Baxter, a Deerfield, Illinois based pharmaceutical company shipped live avian flu virus mixed with vaccine material to 18 countries. This 0utbreak sounds like a virus cocktail to me cooked up on a petri dish in some lab somewhere.

This present swine flu outbreak reports that "This is the first time that we've seen an avian strain, two swine strains and a human strain," said Daigle, adding that the virus had influenza strains from European and Asian swine, but not from North American swine. Full article here

It is never too late to contain an epidemic; illegal aliens crossing the border from Mexico to America are would be carriers, bringing this virus into the United States of America from Mexico

Mexico Shuts Down Public Institutions After 60 Flu Deaths

Mexico shut down schools, museums, libraries and state-run theaters across its overcrowded capital Friday in hopes of containing a swine flu outbreak that authorities say killed at least 20 people - and perhaps dozens more. World health authorities worried openly that the strange new virus could become a global epidemic.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said tests show some of the Mexico victims died from the same new strain of swine flu that sickened eight people in Texas and California.
Mexico put the confirmed toll at 20 dead, but 40 other fatalities were being probed, and at least 943 nationwide were sick from the suspected flu, the health department said.

Scientists said the virus combines genetic material from pigs, birds and humans in a way researchers have not seen before.

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places and famines, and pestilences... Luke 21:11

'Israel Puts Iran Ahead of Palestinians'

Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu, has made a brilliant strategic political move and has made it known to Washington that Iran is ahead of the palestinian issue saying that his government will hold off any discussion of the issues at the core of peace talks with the Palestinians until US efforts to put an end to the Iranian nuclear weapons drive bear fruit and curtail Teheran's increasing regional influence, according to top Israeli officials quoted by the Washington Post on Wednesday. Now we wait and see.

Saudi Arabia – Saudi Christian Blogger Hamoud Bin Saleh Released From Prison

You may recall the story I reported here of the young Saudi Christian blogger, Hamoud Bin Saleh, who was arrested in Saudi Arabia for writing about his Christian conversion from Islam. On March 28, Hamoud Bin Saleh was released from prison, Compass Direct News reported. This indeed is answered prayer and a miracle from God, because in Saudi Arabia the penalty for converting from Islam, also called apostasy, is death. His release from prison does not come without conditions, however. Hamoud Bin Saleh is not allowed to leave the country or speak to media. Read the story here

Please pray that he will remain strong in his Christian faith in an environment that tortures and kills Christians, and that God will protect him from further harm and torture.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD Psalm 150:6

Church of Scotland Criticises Christians Who Use Bible To Argue Against Homosexuality

The Church of Scotland is now criticising Christians in their official magazine who use the Bible to argue against homosexuality.

An editorial in the new edition of Life and Work says even those with a traditionalist view of scripture do not take everything in the Bible literally

  • Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: It is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

It can't get much clearer than the above verse from God.

In keeping with Tony Blair's world-wide agenda from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation,Tony Blair is out to revise the meaning of what God has actually said in the Bible, and wipe out it's literal meaning. Mr. Blair said in this article concerning homosexuality when he told the Pope he was wrong,

  • "Speaking to the gay magazine Attitude, the former Prime Minister, himself now a Roman Catholic, said that he wanted to urge religious figures everywhere to reintepret their religious texts to see them as metaphorical, NOT LITERAL, and suggested that in time this would make all religious groups accept gay people as equals."

First, let us be clear. This is not an "equality issue" as socialist-revisionist Blair is trying to paint , it is a morality issue based upon what God's Word says of homosexuality. It is a sin issue and the Word of God says ALL have sinned and fall short of God's glory, which makes us all equal in God's eyes. Romans 3:23

From Mr. Blair's perspective, it kinda looks like the word "sin" in not to be taken literally either. Unfortunately for Mr. Blair, it is the Holy Spirit who leads into all truth and all Christians, including the Church of Scotland if it calls itself Christian, are not to take the word of Tony Blair, a mere man and false teacher, who is out to change the Word of God. The Apostle Peter, in his second episitle, warned us of false teachers such as Tony Blair when he wrote, BUT there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them.....1:2:1

Holocaust Remembrance Day- Yom Hashoah

Tuesday, April 21, the Jewish State of Israel will be acknowledging all those who died in the Holocaust, and those who helped to save the Jews.

On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, or in Hebrew Yom Hashoah, let people of all nationalities proclaim with the Jewish people, who lost 6,000,000 of their brethren in the worst crime against humanity in the history of the world. "Never again!"

One of the best kept secrets because the media never talks about it is the three million innocent Christians Hitler murdered in WWII, mostly Poles who were predominantly Catholic.

Irena Sendler

Another well kept secret of the Holocaust is the number of Gentiles who helped the Jews escape Hitler's death camps, at the risk of death themselves. In Poland at the time, anyone caught helping a Jew was immediately executed.The Yad Vashem museum in Israel honors those "Righteous Among The Nations" for helping to save the Jewish people under Hitler's death sentence, where Poland ranks number one among forty nations with over 5,500 people who risked their lives to save the lives of Jews.

History has a way of repeating itself and we are again seeing anti-semetic attacks at an alarming rate take place around the world, especially in Europe and the Middle East, with calls by the racist Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel off the map. At the same time, we are also seeing a world-wide demonization and attack on Bible believing Christians with a criminalization of Christianity.

Together, the church of Jesus Christ and all peoples of the world must stand with and unite in one voice and say with the Jews "Never again!".

Israel mine inheritance Isaiah 19:25

Virginia Pro-lifers Labeled 'Potential Terrorists'

In an attempt to demonize, smear and intimidate Bible believing Christians, the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security has named a Virginia Pro-Life ministry as being a potential domestic terrorist. From OneNewsNow

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a report last week that created quite a storm, claiming certain groups of people are at risk for being or becoming "extremists" as members of "right-wing" organizations. That report identified no specific groups. But Dennis Green of Life & Liberty Ministries received a call from a friend who found his group's name listed on a state report. "Our ministry was named as being a potential domestic terrorist in a report," says Green. "It was the '2009 Virginia Terrorist [Threat] Assessment' report put out by the Fusion Center -- and it was for the Virginia State Police."Complete story here

Egypt: Arab Nations Plotting Against Us

Are arab nations plotting against Egypt?

The Egyptian government is saying that other arab nations in the Middle East including Iran, Syria and Qatar, Hamas, Muslin Brotherhood and al-Jazeera television as co-conspirators are against the regime and are involved in a plot with Hizbullah against Egypt to bring about chaos and a coup in Egypt. See story here

Is Bible prophecy concerning Egypt about to take place and is the Lord getting ready to smite Egypt? Indeed, the Bible, in the Book of Daniel and Isaiah, God's prophets have much to say about Egypt in these last days that may be developing right now. Interesting, of Egypt, Daniel writes that Egypt will not escape out of the hands of antichrist in Daniel 11:42.

At the same time, George Mitchell, Obama's Middle East envoy has declared that comprehensive peace in the Middle East will be possible only as result of leadership of Egypt. Read about it here.

Egypt, during the millenium reign of Christ, will be blessed God's prophet Isaiah writes. But first, Egypt will be tried and humbled. And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be entreated of them, and shall heal them. Isaiah 19:22

In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: 24

Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance. 25

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 Timothy 3:1

Freedom loving patriots, young and old, reaching across all political party lines showed up with their signs in a Tea Party Grassroots Movement, protesting Obama's pork stimulus, going way beyond all expectations with millions of Americans participating in over 800 Tea Parties. Here are some pictures I grabbed off the internet.

Texas Governor Perry: Texans May Want To Secede From The Union

Governor Perry and the patriots of Texas sent a strong message to Obama's federal government during over 800 Tea Parties nationwide, suggesting that Texas may want to secede from the union.

Don't Mess With Texas, Obama!

Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, "Secede!"
An animated Perry told the crowd at Austin City Hall — one of three tea parties he was attending across the state — that officials in Washington have abandoned the country's founding principles of limited government. He said the federal government is strangling Americans with taxation, spending and debt.

Perry repeated his running theme that Texas' economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the "federal budget mess." Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.

Perry called his supporters patriots. Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to sucede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that
Perry is running for re-election against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a fellow Republican. His anti-Washington remarks have become more strident the past few weeks as that 2010 race gets going and since Perry rejected $550 million in federal economic stimulus money slated to help Texas' unemployment trust fund.

Mitchell Visit to See If Netanyahu Really Against 2-States

Is Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu really against the two state solution as prominent voices from within his government have been announcing? It seems as if New World Order puppet, George Mitchell, is going to try to find out during a special envoy visit this week in Israel as Europe and the Arab league along with the U.S.of A gang up on little Israel in an attempt to steal Israel's land and half of Jerusalem. I suspect more than observation and listening is in store, though, and Mitchell will use pressure against Mr. Netanyahu in the same manner the EU and the arab league has in an effort to have him submit to their demands.

Barna Group Says Most American Christians Do Not Believe Satan or the Holy Spirit Exist?

I haven't heard of the Barna Group, but in this survey, they are suggesting that Most American Christians Do Not Believe that Satan or the Holy Spirit Exist, while in a Rasmussn poll I put up yesterday claims an overwhelming 79% of Americans believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead and 82% believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth and died for our sins. What is a person to believe?

If the Holy Spirit does not exist, then these people are calling Jesus a liar and His Word a lie, and they are not really Christians at all.

Jesus said in John's Gospel: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 16:13

I did my own research, and found this on Wikipedia about the Barna Group:

The Barna Group
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Barna Group is a firm based in Ventura, California. It consists of five divisions focusing on primary research (The Barna Research Group); communications tools (BarnaFilms); printed resources (BarnaBooks); leadership development for young people (The Josiah Corps); and church facilitation and enhancement (Transformation Church Network).[1] It was founded in 1984 by George Barna, a media research specialist holding graduate degrees in urban planning and political science, for the purpose of providing "research and marketing expertise as a service to Christian ministry."[2] For the first seven years of its existence, the Barna Group provided research services for the Disney Channel, work that provided enough cash flow to allow the company to gradually expand its services to the Christian community.[2] Other clients have included the American Broadcasting Company, VISA, and the military.[3] In 1991, the company cut ties with Disney to concentrate its resources on a campaign to transform the church.[2] According to the Barna Group, "The ultimate aim of the firm is to partner with Christian ministries and individuals to be a catalyst in moral and spiritual transformation in the United States. It accomplishes these outcomes by providing vision, information, evaluation and resources through a network of intimate partnerships."[1] Scientific opinion polls provided by The Barna Group are frequently cited in national and international news media in articles about American religion.

The concept of notional Christians seems to have been created by the Barna Group for the purposes of gathering statistics. They define the term as follows: "We categorize Notional Christian as those who describe themselves as Christians, but do not believe that they will have eternal life because of their reliance upon the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the grace extended to people through a relationship with Christ. (A large majority of these individuals believe they will have eternal life, but not because of a grace-based relationship with Jesus Christ.)"[4] The term implies that some have the notion that they are Christian, though they do not meet the Barna Group's definition of Christian.


Notional Christians are not Christians at all!! and ....They do not even believe in the basic Christian doctrine of salvation by God's grace through acceptance of His Son, Jesus Christ, who died for their sins and rose from the dead on the third day. They believe, according to the foregoing, that they will have eternal life without believing that because of God's grace, Christ died for their sins. They should not even be called Christians and Barna Group has no business including them in this survey which only serves to mislead.

Just because a marketing or research group provides services that relate to Christian concerns does not make that marketing group a Christian organization according to the Word of God.

I'll tell you what I think, and know to be true. Satan is the author of confusion, and there is nothing he wants more than to keep the masses thinking that biblical Christianity is dead in America. Satan is attacking the Bible, and is out to destroy God's Word like never before today, using the secular and controlled media sources, such as this ridiculous Barna Group Poll. He is doing everything he can to divide the the true body of Christ, creating now 'sub-divisions' in Christianity, because denominationalism is dying since true Bible believing Christians are leaving the compromising institutional churches in droves.

No wonder people are confused; a survey such as done by the Barna Group is specifically designed to confuse, however, God declared in His Word clearly that "God is not the author of confusion." 1 Corinthians 14:33.

Take a look at these two surveys, or polls and compare if you will. The Barna Group poll is clearly deceptive, when placed against God's Word. First, the Barna Group poll shows clear discrepancies against God's Word, and clearly these people included in the poll are lost and cannot even be considered to be Christians up against God's Word, yet the survey calls them Christians which creates a completely misleading and false survey.

No one who is a Bible believing Christian and born again can ever say that satan or the Holy Spirit does not exist; however, on the other hand, as the Rasmussen Poll shows,and according to the teachings of Jesus himself, no one can say that Jesus is the Son of God and that Jesus rose from the dead except by the Holy Spirit. Clearly, this means that those confused souls in the Barna Group survey are, in my estimation, not truly born again and have not the Holy Spirit of God living in them, and cannot be considered to be Christian to begin with, or are apostate.

God's Word is our teacher with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, living in all true believers.

Jesus said:

John 14:16,17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your rememberance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26,27 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me; And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Sp[irit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

John 17:17 Thy Word is truth.

An Overwhelming 79% in America Believe Jesus Christ Rose from the Dead

An overwhelming 79% of Americans believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead and 82% believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth and died for our sins, according to a recent Rasmussen Report. 88% of adults nationwide think the person known to history as Jesus Christ actually walked the earth 2,000 years ago. That’s up five points from a year ago.More at above link

The secular-humanist government of the United States of America lead by the man occupying the White House, Obama, who is under the delusion that Americans do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, cannot destroy the true church of Jesus Christ or the faith of these professing followers of Jesus Christ in America. If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9.

Jesus is the only person who ever rose from the dead, making Him God, just as he claimed. No other religious figure in world history has ever risen from the dead except Jesus Christ; they are all still in their graves awaiting the judgment by Jesus Christ, who will judge them for their unbelief and false teachings.

Yet, there are those today who claim the person of Jesus never existed. The fact is, even secular ancient records prove Jesus Christ is an historical person, who did indeed live and walk this earth over 2,000 years ago, even though the Romans tried, without success, to destroy all records of Jesus. Jesus' Jewish enemies had the most to gain by denying the existence of Jesus, but even in Jewish writings there is mention of Jesus' existence. Gemaras of the Jewish Talmud even refer to Jesus in a negative manner, but admitting that the person of Jesus Christ lived on earth.

There is the noted Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, who began his writings in 67 a.d. under the Roman authority. Although Josephus was born a few years after Jesus was crucified, he was very much aware of who Jesus was, writing in his famous Antiquities of the Jews around a.d. 93 about Jesus, saying "At that time lived Jesus, a holy man, if man he may be called, for he performed wonderful works, and taught men, and joyfully received the truth. And he was followed by many Jews and many Greeks. He was the Messiah."

Research shows there are close to twenty ancient secular historians who attest to Jesus as a real person.

One of these is a Roman historian, Cornelius Tacitus, who was born about twenty five years after Jesus was crucified, confirming that Jesus suffered under Pilate and attesting to the fact that he had seen Christianity start to make an impact in Rome.

What about you? Who do you say Jesus is? Either he was a crazy person who died a horrible painful death by crucifixion for nothing, or He is who He said He is. Your eternal destiny depends upon knowing the answer to the question Who is Jesus? His followers witnessed the resurrected Jesus Christ, spending 40 days with Him. Their lives were dramatically transformed after witnessing the resurrected Jesus. Wherever they went telling of the risen Christ, and the need to repent of sin for salvation through Jesus Christ, they suffered persecution and died horrible deaths, except John. But that didn't stop them because they knew who they had seen and it was not a lie.

If you don't know this Jesus, you have missed the most important reason for living, and I urge you to to take the initial step to get to know Jesus by asking Him to reveal himself to you through His Word, and surrender your life over to the risen Saviour.

Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen: he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. Mark 16:6

Witnesses To The Resurrected Christ

And Peter, in his sermon, declared boldly their witness to the resurrected Christ, saying: "This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we are all witnesses.

Therefore let the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and God." Acts Chapter 2:32, 36

Bless the Lord. He has risen just as he said he would.
May the Lord bless you on this Resurrection Day!

The Blood of Jesus

But for the Blood of Jesus, where would any of us be? Thank you, Jesus.
"O, The Blood/Nothing But The/Near The Cross" The Gaithers

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the alter to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Leviticus 17:11

Fulfilled in Jesus Christ, for those who know Jesus, our sins are washed away, we are not a people without hope as others are because we are destined for a glorious future because of what Jesus did for us in the shedding of His blood for the remission of sins.

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

Shortly before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gathsemane after anguishing in prayer to His Father through the betrayal of one of the twelve, Judas, the Gospel of Mark Chapter 14 records.

Prior to that, Jesus had been through several trials, six to count; three were of the Jewish leaders and three were of the Romans, and endured unbearable painful beatings and whippings along with mocking as the Roman soldiers led him into the hall before Pilate, placing a crown of thorns upon Jesus' head, as the multitudes, persuaded by the chief priests, yelled 'Crucify him

Jesus endured further mocking by the Roman soldiers when they clothed him in purple to go along with his 'crown of thorns' they had placed upon his head as they saluted him 'Hail, King of the Jews', smoting him on the head with a reed, spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. After mocking Jesus, the Roman soldiers removed the purple robe and put his own clothes on him and led him out to crucify him.

Golgotha, meaning the place of the Skull, was the site of Jesus' execution. Jesus' hands and feet were nailed to a tree by the Roman soldiers after the long, painful journey, enduring whippings and his back bleeding, to Golgotha. For painful hours, our Saviour hung on the cross for our sins, in the mid day hot sun, with painful thorns penetrating into his head.

The sky turned dark at about the sixth hour, bringing darkness over the whole earth for three hours, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst, and Jesus gave up his spirit to His Father.

Now there was a good and just man called Joseph, of Arimathea, a counsellor, who had requested of Pilate the body of Jesus for burial, who wrapped Jesus' body in fine linen and laid Jesus in a tomb and rolled a large stone before the entrance.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay dow my life, that I might take it again.  No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.  I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.  This commandment have I received of my Father.  John 10: 17,18

'Crown of Thorns' Spotted by NASA's Hubble

With the Lord speaking to us through the heavens,
a spectacular galaxy called "Crown of Thorns" has been spotted by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. How fitting that "Crown of Thorns" makes its debut during the Passover Feast, the Passover Lamb being Jesus Christ himself, who was sacrificed by God for the sins of all, by crucifixion, with a crown of thorns platted by the soldiers and put upon Jesus head. John 19:2

Jesus said: "I am the light of the world." John 8:12.

Christian Doctors Run Hospital for Muslim Patients in Egypt

Here's some positive and uplifting news, where Christian doctors are running a hospital for muslim patients in Egypt, as a labor of love, that shows it is possible for muslims and Christians to live together in a muslim country peacefully.

Tensions between Christians and Muslims in Egypt often make headlines, but the work of a group of Christian doctors paints a more upbeat picture of religious coexistence. The doctors run a hospital for mostly Muslim patients in Egypt's heartland - the Egyptian Delta town of Menhouf.
  • "Jesus, when he came to our earth, he went around doing good for all people, regardless of their religion, their gender, their economic status, and sometimes the church itself cannot do this," he said
Patients wait for their turns at Harpur Memorial Hospital in Egyptian Delta town of Menhouf The afternoon call to prayer sounds in the predominantly Muslim Egyptian Delta town of Menhouf as doctors examine patients at the Harpur Memorial Hospital run by the Anglican diocese of North Africa.Unlike most hospitals in Egypt, Harpur receives no money from the government and its mostly Christian staff of doctors donate their time to care for the hospital's primarily Muslim clientele.

Tony Blair Tells The Pope: You're Wrong on Homosexuality

Tony Blair mocks God's Word, telling the pope, "you're wrong on homosexuality," saying that he wanted to urge religious figures everywhere to reinterpret their religious texts to see them as metaphorical, not literal, and suggested that in time this would make all religious groups accept gay people as equals.  While Tony Blair may think he has put one over on God, reality must set in sooner or later. 

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Romans 6:23

The world is swiftly heading into the Days of Lot, Luke 17:27, a time Jesus likened to the time of His return. The Bible is perfectly clear in Jude 7 as to why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah declaring "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, and are set forth for  an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

Jesus likened His time of return to the days of Lot and we are very near the coming of our Lord and Saviour. Sexual immoriality in the form of homosexuality is rampant worldwide and increasing in our day, with more radical homosexuals from states in America demanding homosexual marriage.

Asked about the Pope’s stance, Mr Blair blamed generational differences and said: “We need an attitude of mind where rethinking and the concept of evolving attitudes becomes part of the discipline with which you approach your religious faith.” Read the full article here

Lieberman: Israel Will Make its Own Policy, World Can Wait

So far, with its new right wing government, Israel is standing its ground against the world as Foreign Minister Lieberman says Israel will make its own policy and the world can wait, reiterating that Israel was not bound by the Saudi Peace Initiative at Annapolis because it was never approved by the Knesset.  Apparent, the arabs and the world governments think they can dictate a peace plan with Israel and by pass the Israeli government approval.

Meanwhile, Israel now is more and more on her own in the world of nations as Germany and the EU, and the USofA, in their attempts to destroy Israel, are now isolating Israel.  The people of Israel need our prayers more than ever  during this most prophetic time of world history.
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Je-hosh-a-phat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Joel 3:2
( Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman stood by controversial statements he made last week in a speech on Tuesday, and he continued to speak bluntly regarding Israeli sovereignty and talks with the Arab world.

In his first speech last week as Foreign Minister, Lieberman said that Israel was not bound by the Annapolis conference agreements, which were never officially approved by the previous government. On Tuesday, he reaffirmed that statement and accused those who attacked him over the speech of “trying to give up Israel's national interests and national honor in favor of completely foreign concepts.”Lieberman says Israel is bound by the Roadmap, which like Annapolis calls for the creation of a Palestinian Authority-led Arab state but which links the creation of such a state to the PA's willingness to fight terrorism. Continues
Germany, EU Cooling Relations with Israel

( Less than a week into the new government’s term, Germany and the European Union are ratcheting up diplomatic pressure on Israel to agree to a “two state” final-status solution in the Land of Israel west of the Jordan.

“In a series of diplomatic barbs,” German magazine Der Spiegel reported Monday, “the German government has expressed its displeasure at the new, right-leaning Israeli government.” Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has put off a planned joint meeting of the cabinets of both countries, for “an undetermined amount of time.” The meeting was initially planned for June.

Have You Tasted My Jesus?

Soon we will be celebrating the most glorious time of the year, in my opinion, the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. With it comes the so-called 'biblical scholars', who every year question the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and their subtle or outright attempts to discredit the scriptural accounts and eye witnesses to the Resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ.

Have you tasted my Jesus is a short story that I recently read that will stir the ire in these 'biblical scholars'. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Have You Tasted My Jesus?

At the University of Chicago Divinity School each year they have what is called Baptist Day. It is a day when all the Baptists in the area are invited to the school because they want Baptist dollars to keep coming in. On this day each one is to bring a sack lunch to be eaten outdoors in a grassy picnic area. Every Baptist Day the school would invite one of the greatest minds to lecture in the theological education center.

One year they invited Dr. Paul Tillich. Dr. Tillich spoke for two and one-half hours proving that the resurrection of Jesus was false. He quoted scholar after scholar and book after book. He concluded that since there was no such things as the historical resurrection the religious tradition of the church was groundless, emotional mumbo-jumbo, because it was based on a relationship with a risen Jesus, who, in fact, never rose from the dead in any literal sense. He then asked if there were any questions.

After about thirty seconds, an old, dark skinned preacher with a head of short-cropped, woolly white hair stood up in the back of the auditorium. "Docta Tillich, I got one question," he said as all eyes turned toward him. He reached into his sack lunch and pulled out an apple and began eating it. "Docta Tillich..." Crunch, Munch..."My question is a simple question," Crunch, Cunch..."Now I ain't never read them books you read..." Crunch, Munch..."and I can't recite the Scriptures in the original Greek..." Crunch, Munch... "I don't know nothin' about Niebuhr and Heidegger..." Crunch, Munch... He finished the apple. "All I wanna know is: This apple I just ate-- was it bitter or sweet?"

Dr. Tillich paused for a moment and answered in exemplary scholarly fashion: "I cannot possibly answer that question, for I haven't tasted your apple."

The white-haired preacher dropped the core of his apple into his crumpled paper bag, looking up at Dr. Tillich and said calmly, "Neither have you tasted my Jesus."

The one thousand plus in attendance could not contain themselves. The auditorium erupted withn applause and cheers. Dr. Tillich thanked his audience and promptly left the platform.

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.  I Corinthians 1:27

Earthquake in Italy Kills 150

A devestating earthquake in the medieval town of L'Aquila has left 150 people dead with 50,000 homeless. Let us pray for the people in this earthquake zone that they will look to Christ in this horrible disaster for salvation and comfort.
  • Italian Earthquake: More Than 150 Dead, Silvio Berlusconi Confirms
  • Up to 50,000 people have been left homeless in the town, around 60 miles north-east of Rome, and in the surrounding villages, with up to 15,000 buildings destroyed or damaged beyond repair.
After working in heavy rain during the day, the rescuers scoured collapsed buildings in the medieval town of L'Aquila, the regional capital at the epicentre of the earthquake. Emergency services said 60 people had been pulled alive from the rubble.
Many buildings in the area date back to the Renaissance and stood no chance against the 20 to 30-second tremor. Complete story here

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.  Mathew 24:7

Jesus Cleanses The Temple

Picture if you will, this story of Jesus as He cleanses the Temple. It was the time of the Jewish Passover Feast, and Jesus had just made His Triumphal Entry Into Jerusalem upon a donkey. It was a very jubilant occasion for Jesus and his multitudes of followers, but when Jesus went into the Temple of God, he didn't like what He saw. This was a most holy place, the place where the blind and lame had come to him and Jesus healed them all.

From scripture, it is obvious that Jesus was very angry at what he saw going on in the Temple where it had been converted into a moneychanging market place for buying and selling animals for sacrifices and he cast them all out, overthrowing the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of them that sold doves, saying to them:

It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.  Matthew 21:13
Now, because many arriving in Jerusalem for the Passover Feast did not know who Jesus was, it is not wrong in itself to purchase an animal for an offering after arriving in Jerusalem, as many of them did, but inside the Temple was not the place to do it. Jesus, in his cleansing of the Temple, also refers to the people as "thieves" in the above scripture, so obviously some sort of thievery was taking place in the Temple.

It is also plain from scripture that Jesus spoke with the utmost authority during his cleansing of the Temple and the chief priests were visibly bothered by this; and as the crowds of people had grown to trust and praise Jesus because of his healings and teachings in the Temple daily, the chief priests and elders were in fear of losing their authority with the Romans, and came up with a scheme to trick Jesus, demanding to know by what authority he could do all these things.  Jesus, being who He was, knew beforehand it was a trap and asked the chief priest and elders a question: 

The baptise of John, whence was it? from heaven, or men?  Matthew 21:27.

As the chief priests and elders reasoned with themselves, they thought "If we shall say, From heaven, he will say unto us, "Why did ye not believe him?"  "But if we shall say, Of men, we fear the people, for all hold John as a prophet."  So they answered with no answer saying, "We cannot tell."  And Jesus beating them at their own game, replied  "Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things." Matthew 21:25.

Two Christian Women Arrested in Iran

Two Christian women, arrested in Iran, are now very sick and one may be dying.  Please keep these women in prayer and ask God to supernaturally intervene for these women.
Iranian security forces have arrested two women for practicing Christianity. According to persecution watchdog International Christian Concern (ICC), Marzieh Amairizadeh and Maryam Rustampoor were accused of being “anti-government activists”.

The Farsi Christian News Network (FCNN) reported that Iranian security forces searched an apartment shared by the two women, confiscated their belongings and took them in handcuffs to a Tehran police station.

The women were then brought before the Revolutionary Court before being sent to the notorious Evin prison. The women were told that to be released they needed to pay a bail of $400,000.

FCNN reported, “Both women are allowed just a one minute telephone call every day to their immediate families. Both are unwell and in need of urgent medical attention. During their last call on March 28 Marzieh said that she was suffering from an infection and high fever. She said ‘I am dying’”.

ICC claim that persecution in Iran has intensified in recent years due to an increase in Muslims converting to Christianity. Last year 50 Christians were arrested for their faith. There have also been reports that some Christians have died following torture by the Iranian government.

Jonathan Racho, ICC Regional Manager for Africa, said, “Iran’s persecution of Christian minorities violates the fundamental freedom of its citizens to worship freely. The international community has obligations to speak up for the rights of the persecuted Iranian Christians. We call upon Iranian officials to stop mistreating Marzieh and Maryam and release them from prison. Source

Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem On A Donkey

Just as prophesied, Jesus Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on a donkey came to be just as written.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and  upon colt the foal of an ass.  Zechariah 9:9.

I can almost see a picture in my mind the holy city of Jerusalem, being crowded with multitudes of people who had come for the annual Passover Feast. As they neared Jerusalem, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them: 

"Go into the village over against you, and straightway yea shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them and bring them unto me.":  Matthew 21:2

And the two disciples did as Jesus commanded of them and brought the donkey, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set them thereon.  Only a king would be treated this way, as is recorded in 2 Kings 9:13.  Then they hasted, and took every man his garment, and put it under him on the top.

The people knew their King had arrived. What a glorious site to behold! And a great multitude spread their garments in the way: others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried saying Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. Matthew 21

Jesus specifically chose to ride into Jerusalem on a donkey because it fulfilled Zechariah's  Messianic prophecy. However, the scripture scene depicts one of Jesus and the zealots, who were ready for Jesus to take on the Romans but Jesus Himself displays a much slower, calmer, peaceful pace as He rides into the city of Jerusalem on the ass.

The choice of the donkey by Jesus to present Himself as King over Israel was no accident. This action portrays Jesus as the royal, but peaceful king that He was coming as, or the Prince of Peace, and not a warrior figure the Jews wanted to defeat their enemies, the Romans. We read in the Old Testament where the royal prince, Mephibosheth came into the city of David riding upon an ass 2 Samuel 19:26 and Ahithopel rode upon an ass in 2 Samuel 17:23.

 While the scene of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding upon an ass pictures Jesus as their royal King, the multitudes  of zealots who had gone up to Jerusalem for the Passover Feast,  escorting Jesus,  did not understand that Jesus was not coming to be their warrior king, but  their Prince of Peace, even though Jesus was not riding on a horse. A king came riding upon a horse when the king was ready for war.

The Apostle Paul, who was the Jewish Apostle chosen by Christ (Acts 9:15) to spread the good news to the Gentles and who wrote most of the New Testament of Christ, instructed believers to celebrate the Passover Feast, the day our Lord, the Prince of Peace,  died on the cross for our sins, in I Corinthians 5:6-8.

Your glory is not good.  Know ye not that a little leaveneth the whole lump?.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.  For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerety and truth.

We are no longer slaves to sin, but have been set free through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore, let us set this day aside to celebrate the Seder with purity and truth.

One day soon, our King is coming back again, just as He promised, to save the remnant of Israel, Zechariah Chapters 12 and 14, and set up His Kingdom, where he will rule out of Jerusalem, Israel on David's Throne.  What a glorious time it will be for those who have surrendered their lives over to, and who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ, the one true God of the universe,  to forgive their sins.

Israel Finds More Natural Gas

Israel has found yet another massive deposit of natural gas, this time 37 miles off the coast of the Israeli city of Hadera

This news of Israel finding more natural gas is absolutely astounding, and will turn Israel's enemies green with envy. This new find could be the biggest natural gas find in history, and would transform the Israeli economy for the better for decades to come." What this means for Israel is that they will no longer be dependent on any other nation for its natural gas needs, and instead Israel will become a major natural gas exporter for the region, rivaling even Russia's exports.
  • Israel is now an even hotter commodity than it already has been. Besides the world wanting control of Jerusalem for its religious importance (Zechariah 12:1-3) and their hostile Arab neighbors coveting the financial importance of Israel's newly restored and agriculturally bountiful land, now these massive gas deposit finds will indeed make Israel a very rich country.
While I am not in full agreement that Magog is Russia, what will this amazing predicament mean in the unfolding scheme of Bible prophecy? Go here to find out

And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey...Ezekiel 38:11,12

Arab States Give Israel Ultimatum

Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu has received yet another ultimatum in an effort to force him into a two state peace deal with Israel's enemies.

Since Mr. Netanyahu has been the new prime minister of Israel, a hawk at that, he has been receiving many ultimatums from the 'land for peace' parties, pushing him to accept a two state solution, giving Israel's heart land away to the arabs, the latest one being from the arab league, warning Israel that it must accept the arab league's terms for an Arab-Israel agreement, and if Israel refuses, the offer will be off the table.

I think the time is right for the arabs to kiss their wishful thinking good-bye and take their offer off the table as P.M. Netanyahu is not about to be bullied into giving away Israel's heartland under any arab-league one-sided agreement that was never voted upon in the Israel Knesset. The 'palestinians' already have a state and its called Jordan. Read about it from

Jesus Christ, Our Passover Lamb

While He Was On The Cross, I Was On His Mind

Our Lord Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of the promise given that one will come who will bruise satan's head written in Genesis 3:15. This Passover Season,Christians all over the world will remember that Jesus was our passover lamb. All of the animal sacrifices offered to God pointed to the One who came to offer Himself.

Jesus was presented to the people on the 10th of Aviv, Nissan on the Hebrew calendar. This is when He made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, on a donkey.

And many spread their garments in the way; and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.  And the people that went before Jesus, and followed Jesus, cried saying Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:  Hosanna in the highest.  Mark 11:8-10

The lamb in the Old Testament was also set aside and presented on the same date. Jesus was crucified between the evenings on Passover, fulfilling the death of the Passover Lamb on Aviv 14. The Last Supper was a Passover seder that Jesus kept with his chosen disciples, and he was crucified on the next day being Passover.

Glory To His Name

The Atheist Holiday-April 1

Let us not forget, today, April 1, better known as ' April Fool's Day, or "The Atheist Holiday, is the day we recognize all atheists

Hooray for that Judge in Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation for Easter and Passover holidays and decided to contact thelocal ACLU about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constantcelebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidayswhile the atheists had no holiday to celebrate.

The ACLU jumped on the opportunity to once again pick up the cause of thegodless and assigned their sharpest attorneys to the case.

The case was brought before a wise judge who after listening to the long,passionate presentation of the ACLU lawyers, promptly banged his gavel and declared, "Case dismissed!"

The lead ACLU lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling andsaid, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? Surely theChristians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances. And theJews--why in addition to Passover they have Yom Kippur and Hanukkah...and yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!"

The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said "Obviously your client is too confused to know about or for that matter even celebrate theatheists' holiday!"

The ACLU lawyer pompously said "We are aware of no such holiday for atheists, just when might that be, your honor?"

The judge said, "Well it comes every year on exactly the same date-April 1st!"

"The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1, 53:1

Suspend EU-Israel Trade Agreement Says UK Greens MEP

From The, The UK Greens, a group of young people who presented a petition in Brussels with 15,000 signatures, in a desparate attempt to force the Netanyahu Administration to accept a land for peace agreement with the 'palestinians', who are not interested in peace with Israel, are now calling for a suspension of the EU-Trade Agreement.

How instrumental the EU parliament are remains to be seen; however, this latest call against Israel is bound to stir up some serious dialogue with other major players in the land for peace initiative between the Israelis and the 'palestinians. An EU-Israel trade suspension could very seriously harm the Israeli economy, while at the same time Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel is talking of taking out Iran's nukes to Obama. Read it here ----->>>

Netanyahu to Obama: Stop Iran—Or I Will

And, from The Jerusalem Post, "PM: We May Be Forced to Attack Iran
  • The primary imperative for the United States and President Barack Obama is to put an end to Iran's nuclear race, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said before his swearing-in Tuesday, adding that if the US failed to do so Israel might be forced to resort to a military strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear installations.
  • "The Obama presidency has two great missions: fixing the economy, and preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons," Netanyahu told The Atlantic. The Iranian drive for a nuclear weapon was a "hinge of history," he said, emphasizing that all of "Western civilization" was responsible for preventing an Iranian bomb.
  • "You don't want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs," Netanyahu said of the Iranian regime. "When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran." More here

This is something that we need to watch closely, as Bible prophecy concerning Israel may advance forward in a big leap in the very near furture as plans for an Israel vs the EU and an American showdown are in the making. Read about it here
