Forgiveness – The Lord’s Prayer

LordsPrayerEveryone has had at one time or another someone that has rubbed them the wrong way, or inflicted pain upon them.  The question is, have you forgiven them?  The following is a teaching recently by Pastor John Hagee, whom I follow intently, for he is rarely if ever is wrong in his teachings.

“Hallowed be thy name, means God’s name is to be honored.  The Air Force Academy now prohibits God’s holy scriptures and the Bible. But it allows Wicken, (witchcraft) and everything else including Islam.  We have chosen to dishonor HIS Holy name!  You cannot be in a right relationship with God and not HIS children.

In the act of confession (repentance) when a family member does something that is outright wrong, don’t rub it in, rub it out, with the power of forgiveness and the BLOOD of Jesus Christ!  We are not here to see who we can put down, we are here to edify and seeing who we can lift up!  We’re not here trying to turn someone out of the Kingdom, we’re trying to bring someone in.  Jesus said “whomsoever will let them come.”   It makes no difference.  Forgive us as we forgive those who trespass against us.

But, if you do not forgive those who trespass neither will the Father forgive you.  What is forgiveness?  Forgiveness is a full pardon from the pain and penalty of sin.  Forgiveness is a fresh start, another chance, a new beginning!  It’s the canceling of a debt.  Forgiveness is the key that locks the door to RESENTMENT!  And the handcuffs of HATRED!   Forgiveness is the supernatural power that breaks the chains of bitterness and brings joy that is unspeakable!   Forgiveness is not soft-hearted foolishness.  It is the first step to your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Ephesians 4:23  “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind!”  Doctors say it leaves hole in the brain that can cause dementia and Alzheimer’s.  When you chose good though your brain fires electrons through your whole body and heals it.  But if you think angry thoughts, vindictive thoughts, and are filled with hate, your brain sends out a signal that destroys your body.  In Philippians 4:8  Paul said the same.  Forgiveness is crucial and not optional with God.  If you DO NOT forgive another person, God promises in Heaven He will not forgive you.  Your anger, hate, and wrath is not getting even with the other person.  You are being eaten up alive and killing yourself!  Period!   Your destroying your mind and your body. God says, STOP IT!”

When my ex-husband committed  adultery in 1968-9, it devastated me and my three children then, 10, 7 &6.  Someone recently said of my son then, that “he was trapped inside his childhood”.  I believe, now after all these years, all 3 were and are.  He would not give her up.  In one swoop, my family with all the Greek traditions I obediently observed, and a husband I still was in love with (toxic love) threw us all in turmoil and tears.   What does anyone do in such pain and misery thrust upon them in an instant?  An affair a year old I knew nothing about, even though our mortgage kept sliding, he bought her a T-Bird too.  I was not saved then, and only 29 when she appeared on my doorstep while he went in panic lugging his bottle of Canadian Club.   For years thereafter, nothing satisfied, and love and a husband was not to be God’s will for me, even another marriage that only lasted 2 years and he was Bi-polar.

By the time I did get saved and had all my Bible studies, so hungry for the Word, I knew for my own well being, I had to forgive him, and that I did in the early 80’s.  But, when he died in 2011 unsaved and I know went to hell, there were still things left unsaid, and I  never had the opportunity to at least pray with him and tell him he was forgiven.  I knew though, those 14 years later, I could not live with unforgiveness.  My son of that marriage who was only 7 when I divorced, was in denial of the truths and had his own problems with his father working for him, and hates me as well.  He blames me for that which I did not initiate, eaten up at 54 by hates and guilts over his own relationship with both sisters as well as his father.  It will kill  him.  (And I pray to God he one day reads this).   Stuck in childhood reliving over and over the pain and rejection, and a father who spent more time during that year, with the adulterous’ son than his own!   I was brought up in a Congregational Protestant Church with all my relatives, and even taught Sunday School, though unsaved.  I knew about forgiveness only vaguely.

Hagee:  “You can laugh at work or with strangers, but inside is a river of tears!  You search for relief like a magic formula, of spending, drugs, alcohol, whatever.  There is no peace and the pain is not going to stop until you do it GOD’s way!!!  And God’s way is forgiveness.  The Lord’s Prayer….THINE WILL be DONE!  Forgive us as WE forgive our debtors.  It is not weakness, Jesus was being murdered on a CROSS, and said “Father forgive them, they know not what they do! ”  It is not for the benefit of the enemy, but YOU!  it’s how you react to what’s happening to you!  You can forgive or go through life without purpose.  When bitterness and hate, and revenge get inside of you, your life is over until you get that out! ”  (And I might add with this opportunity, that is why ISIS and Islam is a false religion of Satan, because of hates and revenge and unforgiveness! And they will be destroyed because of it.)

Hagee: “God will not forgive you if you don’t forgive.”  You can’t be a better old person.  It is a lie for you can forgive, you just don’t WANT to.  You know what the Bible calls that?  WITCHCRAFT!  You can forgive when its a weapon of CONTROL (which is also abuse and witchcraft.)  It is NOT right.  DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE IN AN EMOTIONAL PENITENTIARY BECAUSE OF SOME PSALTERY MISERABLE SOMETHING THEY DID IN THE 1960’s?   “Oh what a Christian you are!!!”  “Well it was what you did and you wronged me! ”  HOGWASH…It doesn’t wash with God…and HE will not forgive you!”You can either CHOOSE to reconcile or be “right”. (In your own eyes.)

The church in America is crippled because they will NOT forgive one another. If your broken we’ll help you.  If you don’t God will turn you over to the TORMENTORS.  Even Christians can’t forgive!  DO it!  It doesn’t mean you have to let someone walk over you. As soon as you forgive YOUR OUT OF JAIL!   You forgive and forget!!

However, it’s never going to really leave your memory.  This has been PREACHED WRONG most of the time. It won’t be erased from your memory, but, it won’t hurt you again.  You may think about it, but it won’t control you and eat you up anymore.  When you forgive GOD WILL CLEANSE YOUR HEART AND MIND.

**FORGIVENESS DEMANDS CHANGE!!!  Forgiveness is not soft hearted foolishness.  It is full of compassion but it DEMANDS A CHANGE IN CONDUCT!  THAT is what repentance is.  TO FORGIVE WITHOUT DEMANDING A CHANGE OF CONDUCT IS TO MAKE THE GRACE OF GOD AN ACCOMPLICE TO EVIL!     You cannot say I forgive him or her without ACTING on it in the compassion of Jesus Christ.

Jesus said to the woman in adultery “Go and sin no more.”  The husband that wants his marriage and says to his wife, “will you forgive me?” “YES if you will CHANGE!  But if you think this is going to be a pattern of conduct; and if you do one more time it is over!” ” (And God had me about 4 years ago, old as I am, I had to write a letter to the Adulteress from 1968 and tell her I forgave her, then peaching salvation and forgiveness.  It was left undone, and God won’t let me get away with anything.)

Hagee: “This Bible, our songs, our way and conduct should be HOLY….and all on forgiveness, by faith.  AND WE HAVE TO FORGIVE OURSELVES!   If God forgot our sins, why can’t you?  Forgiveness is the only thing to heal a broken family.”  

CS Lewis said in The Problem of Pain, “We are bidden to ‘put on Christ’, to become like God.  That is, whether we like it or not, God intends to give us what we need, not what we now think we want.  Once more, we are embarrassed by the intolerable compliment, by too much love, not too little.” 


God bless Pastor John Hagee for this message!    Thank you Jesus!  May this be a breakthrough for all who have an ear to hear ….Blessings..

John Hagee –  Forgiveness &The Lord’s Prayer




Jefferson and the Barbary Islamic Pirates

imagesWell, I keep saying history repeats itself…This is from Freedom Outpost:

“First, keep in mind that Islam and terrorism have gone hand in hand since its inception at the beginning of the 7th century. In fact, it’s founder Muhammad was a terrorist and used “religion” to band his merry men together to conquer, rape and pillage.

For nearly fifteen centuries the world has faced the disease of Islam, but our nation faced it head on when Thomas Jefferson, serving as the ambassador to France, and John Adams, serving as the ambassador to Britain, went to London to meet with Ambassador Abdrahaman, the Dey of Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain. Of course they met with Abdrahaman to negotiate a peace treaty, but keep in mind that in Islam, the only peace is submission to Islam.

Islam requires jizya under Sharia law, you know that alleged “harmless law” they want to impose here in the West. Jizya is a per capita tax levied on a section of an Islamic state’s non-Muslim citizens, who meet certain criteria. The tax is and was to be levied on able-bodied adult males of military age and affording power. So as Adams and Jefferson met, they found out the price of peace was quite expensive.

Gary DeMar writes,

If America wanted “temporary peace,” a one-year guarantee, it would cost $66,000 plus a 10% commission. “Everlasting peace” was a bargain at $160,000 plus the obligatory commission. This only applied to Tripoli. Other Muslim nations would also have to be paid. The amount came to $1.3 million. But there was no assurance that the treaties would be honored. In vain, Jefferson and Adams tried to argue that America was not at war with Tripoli. In what way had the U.S provoked the Muslims, they asked? Ambassador Abdrahaman went on to explain “the finer points of Islamic jihad” to the Koranically challenged Jefferson and Adams.

Jefferson then wrote a letter to John Jay that read:

“The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

This is loosely based upon the Qur’an’s teaching from Surah 47:4 which reads,

“Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

So what happened? Though the US, along with Great Britain and France had paid a “tribute” for protection against piracy, once Tripoli increased the tribute following Jefferson becoming President, he refused to pay them the increase, though he did continue to pay until the end of his presidency. Tripoli then declared war on the United States on May 10, 1801. This was the beginning of the First Barbary War.’

“After the United States won its independence in the treaty of 1783, it had to protect its own commerce against dangers such as the Barbary pirates. As early as 1784 Congress followed the tradition of the European shipping powers and appropriated $80,000 as tribute to the Barbary states, directing its ministers in Europe, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, to begin negotiations with them. Trouble began the next year, in July 1785, when Algerians captured two American ships and the dey of Algiers held their crews of twenty-one people for a ransom of nearly $60,000.

Thomas Jefferson, United States minister to France, opposed the payment of tribute, as he later testified in words that have a particular resonance today. In his autobiography Jefferson wrote that in 1785 and 1786 he unsuccessfully “endeavored to form an association of the powers subject to habitual depredation from them. I accordingly prepared, and proposed to their ministers at Paris, for consultation with their governments, articles of a special confederation.” Jefferson argued that “The object of the convention shall be to compel the piratical States to perpetual peace.” Jefferson prepared a detailed plan for the interested states. “Portugal, Naples, the two Sicilies, Venice, Malta, Denmark and Sweden were favorably disposed to such an association,” Jefferson remembered, but there were “apprehensions” that England and France would follow their own paths, “and so it fell through.”

Paying the ransom would only lead to further demands, Jefferson argued in letters to future presidents John Adams, then America’s minister to Great Britain, and James Monroe, then a member of Congress. As Jefferson wrote to Adams in a July 11, 1786, letter, “I acknolege [sic] I very early thought it would be best to effect a peace thro’ the medium of war.” Paying tribute will merely invite more demands, and even if a coalition proves workable, the only solution is a strong navy that can reach the pirates, Jefferson argued in an August 18, 1786, letter to James Monroe: “The states must see the rod; perhaps it must be felt by some one of them. . . . Every national citizen must wish to see an effective instrument of coercion, and should fear to see it on any other element than the water. A naval force can never endanger our liberties, nor occasion bloodshed; a land force would do both.” “From what I learn from the temper of my countrymen and their tenaciousness of their money,” Jefferson added in a December 26, 1786, letter to the president of Yale College, Ezra Stiles, “it will be more easy to raise ships and men to fight these pirates into reason, than money to bribe them.”

With US merchant ships being attacked and Americans being kidnapped he finally issued letters of marque and reprisal, which sent a groups of privately owned war ships, that were approved by the government, to make war against the Barbary Pirates. He utilized this constitutional measure, which we are not using today.

In doing this he sent for the “privateers,” as they were referred to. The privately owned frigates USS Philadelphia, USS President, and the USS Essex, along with the schooner USS Enterprise was America’s first navy to cross the Atlantic. Others would also join and see action as well.

Ultimately, in 1805 United States Marines crossed the desert from Egypt into Tripolitania, forced the surrender of Tripoli and free those Americans that had been kidnapped and were made slaves.

Thus, this is where the famous line from the United States Marine Corps (Oorah!) comes from: “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli. Demar says it not only refers to the First Barbary War, but specifically to the Battle of Derna, which took place in 1805.

It is ironic the Rep. Keith Ellison, who became the United States’ first Muslim Congressman took his oath of office on Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an at a time when we continue to be at war with Islam. While Ellison has called Jefferson a “visionary,” what I think we could all learn is that Jefferson was wise enough to read and learn about the enemy from their own book of jihad. Sadly, many today would rather listen to the lies of Islamists rather than understand what the Qur’an actually teaches. After all, it’s been said “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.””



Glenn Beck and David Barton on our Founders and Islam

Statement by Rev. Franklin Graham


Thank you Reverend and my prayers go with you.

“In the wake of more brutality by militant group Islamic State, Franklin Graham has said that even they will one day bow to Jesus.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, wrote: “The evil of ISIS really shouldn’t shock us – it is fully in keeping with their ultimate agenda of hastening a final apocalypse. God’s Word tells us that there will be a final battle one day, but it will result in the defeat of Satan and all those allied with him.

“One thing is for sure – one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Graham highlighted the video released by IS on Sunday showing the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, as well as the fatal shootings in Denmark over the weekend by a gunman suspected to have been inspired by the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.

The evangelist criticised President Obama for failing to “acknowledge the truth and call Islamic extremism what it is.”

“After a weekend of terrorism in Libya and Denmark, beginning today the White House is hosting a three-day “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.” I am perplexed as to why our President will not acknowledge the truth and call Islamic extremism what it is,” Graham wrote.

“In a statement the White House even called the 21 Christians who were beheaded ‘Egyptian citizens,’ refusing to identify them as Christians. The truth is–their barbaric murderers openly said they killed them because they were ‘people of the cross.’ Why is the President seemingly continuing to protect Islam and refusing to open his eyes to the truth?”

On Monday, Graham posted a statement to his Facebook page warning that “the storm is coming”.

“Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world?” he asked.

“As we mourn with the families of those 21 martyrs, we’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States. If this concerns you like it does me, share this. The storm is coming.”

Graham has previously encouraged Muslims to turn from Islam and accept Christ.

In a live panel interview on Fox News in January, he said: “I want to say something to all the Muslims that may be watching this that are confused and are afraid themselves. I want them to know that God loves them and that Jesus Christ died for their sins – and Christ will forgive them and heal their hearts.

“And they don’t have to die in a jihad, they don’t have to kill somebody else to please God. God loves them and he will accept them through faith and through his son, Jesus Christ.”

In an interview with Christian Today in December, he said Islam is “a religion of war”.

Extremist groups such as Islamic State and Boko Haram have not “hijacked” the religion, he added. “This is Islam. It has not been hijacked by radicals. This is the faith, this is the religion. It is what it is. It speaks for itself.”

Obama, History, Truth or Fiction

temple to JesusProblematic Historic facts on who God was and is,  which this President has no clue as to any of the history of Islam, or Christianity.  “By your fruits ye shall know them”.  Matthew 7:16,20   (It would seem that Obama does not bear any fruits, only vain dead branches.)

First Genesis 1 and the original creation of the universe is 4,000BC.  2. “And the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) moved upon the face of the waters. “(God did not originally create the Earth without form and void; it became this way after a cataclysmic happening; this happening was the revolt of Lucifer (Satan now) against God, which took place some time in the dateless past…but this was the beginning of life!) Expositors Study Bible.

He then created Adam and Eve, which represents the fall and sin of mankind.  Genesis 5 states all of Adam’s decendents; in Genesis 6 is the story of Noah and the Ark, and the great flood, and the Tower of Babel (modern day Iraq which was Mesopotamia, the first great civilization. )   The Abrahamic Covenant began around 1921 BC, wherein in 12:2 God says, “I will make you a great nation”…ISRAEL, WHICH INCLUDED PALESTINE…As Abram then as he was called, was led by God out of UR which is in the north of Iraq where the Euprates and Tigris meet, to the land of “milk and honey” Canaan…(Israel).  And that covenant was given to now Abraham…the Jews!  Later of course came Moses in Egypt and their 40 year trial going around that mountain over and over, complaining…

Then throughout the Old Testament are the stories of Joseph, Solomon, Saul, and King David, the apple of God’s eye, in spite of his sins…and all his cries and praises to God in Psalms.   Babylon supremacy ended in 538 BC when the Meeds and the Persians (Iran now) overran Babylon (located in Iraq now, south, near Kuwait…which Saddam Hussein had started to rebuild, the hanging gardens of Nebuchadnezzar, who he believed he was reincarnated from foolishly). * Also from a 1989 UPI article by the late Peter Jennings.   As a result, the Jews were liberated from captivity (See Mr. President…the Arabs fought the Jews way back before Jesus AND Mohamed!)  The Jews then went back home and rebuilt the walls of the Temple…leading up to Haggai, Zechariah the Prophet, and Malachi, who also prophesied to the Jews.  (c. 430 BC).  Between that time and its fulfillment when John the Baptist came announcing the coming of the Messiah, was a period of a little over 400 years.  (Expositor’s Study Bible).  At the close of the Old Testament the Persians (modern day Iran) were the dominant political power….(not religious, for Islam hadn’t come yet.)

There was conflict between descendent’s of  Ptolemy as well as the descendent’s of  Seleucus so that when Ptolemy IV died, Antiochus III (the Great) took Palestine away from the Jews in  198 BC.   (It NEVER belonged to the ARABS….and Islam wasn’t even a religion then!!! )  Many Jews were then killed at this time too.   GOD gave that whole country of Israel to the JEWS and the COVENANT BELONGS TO THEM!  What followed was the Maccabean Revolt.  The Syrians took full advantage of the Jews, who refused to fight on the Sabbath.   (SAME countries …almost SAME battles as in the world now.)  God gave the COVENANT TO ABRAHAM THROUGH ISAAC, TO THE ARABS, THROUGH ISHMAEL, HE GAVE OIL….

But, through Ismael, to Esau, who was in the womb yet with his twin, Jacob, he had hates, and had a hold of Jacobs heal before birth, and Jacob always had a limp thereafter.  Evil..Esau meaning “the hairy one”…the only one God said “Him do I hate!”  Esau much to the distress too of his mother and father, Isaac and Rebecca, married 2 Hittite (Turkey) women (Genesis 26:34).  We are told by the prophet Ezekiel that Hittites were partially responsible for founding Jerusalem.   Ez. 16:3, 45.    Jacob and Rebecca were Amorites. A professor Hugo Winckler discovered in 1905 a number of cuneiform texts and hieroglyphics.  *The Bible as History by Werner Keller

Now the New Testament:

Matthew states that Jesus was born while Herod the Great was still alive and that Herod ordered the slaughter of infants two years old and younger (Matt. 2:16), and based on the date of Herod’s death in 4 BC (contra Dionysius Exiguus), many chronologists conclude that the year 6 BC is the most likely year of Jesus’ birth.

Before Jesus birth there were numerous rulers, until Simon (the Just) who ruled 144-135 BC.  He was the first to really rule the Kingdom.  He was then assassinated in 135 BC by his son-in-law, Ptolemy.  John Hyrcanus rules from 135 -106 BC.  Then came Roman control.  Aristobulus and his sons rules until Rome took over.  After a period of independence under the Maccabees, Palestine came under Roman control in 63 BC under Pompey.  He besieged Jerusalem for three months and reportedly killed twelve thousand Jews after he took the city!

Based on inferences from Gospel accounts, Jesus was executed by crucifixion on a Friday, and on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan under the administration of Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate held his position from 26-36 and the only years in which Nisan 14 fell on a Friday are 27, 33, and 36 and possibly in 30 depending on when the new moon would have been visible in Jerusalem. Scholars have defended all of the dates.

The Romans entered the Temple and the Holy of Holies…(a sin)..but they did not take the costly furnishings.. The Temple worship was still allowed.  *REMEMBER THE JEWS DURING THIS TIME, AND THE TEMPLE BUILT BY GOD ALMIGHTY WAS THE ONLY RELIGION AND THE FIRST RELIGION OF THIS WORLD!  PERIOD!   We Gentiles only come to the throne of God via Jesus Christ, who was a Jew too, and Rabbi.   THERE was no Mohammad then, nor ISLAM, Hindu, or Buddist or Catholic church, for in then Mesopotamia and UR (Iraq) when Abraham was born, was the FIRST and only civilization on our whole planet! Other countries took hundreds of years to reproduce.    Therefore, there is even historically only ONE God, the Father, God the son, and God the HOLY Spirit…

Muhammad was born around the year 570 AD  in the city of Mecca, Arabia. His name means “highly praised.” Muhammad’s full name was Abu al-Qasim Muhammad Ibn Abd Allah Ibn Abd al-Muttalib Ibn Hashim. He was the last prophet of the religion of Islam.  (*This means he was born 564 years AFTER Jesus.)

Muhammad’s father, Abdallah, died several weeks before his birth and his mother, Aminah, died when he was six years old. He was raised by his paternal grandfather, ‘Abd al Muttalib, until the age of eight, and after his grandfather’s death by Abu Talib, his paternal uncle. Under the guardianship of Abu Talib, Muhammad began to earn a living as a businessman and a trader.

The tradition of Islam claims that in the year 610, Muhammad, while on a retreat to Mount Hira for meditation during the month of Ramadan, received his first revelation from the Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel said to Muhammad: “Iqraa,” meaning “read” or “recite.” He replied, “I cannot read.” Gabriel embraced Muhammad and after releasing him repeated: “Iqraa.” Muhammad’s answer was the same as before. Gabriel repeated the embrace, asking Muhammad to repeat after him and said: “Recite in the name of your Lord who created! He created man from that which clings. Recite; and thy Lord is most Bountiful, He who has taught by the pen, taught man what he knew not.”  (How could he be learned if he couldn’t read?)

The Prophet’s mission was to restore the worship of the One True God, the creator and sustainer of the universe, as taught by Prophet Abraham and all Prophets of God, and to demonstrate the laws of moral, ethical, legal, and social conduct. Islam means peace by submission and obedience to the Will and Commandments of God. Those who accept Islam are called Muslims, meaning those who have accepted the message of peace by submission to God.  (Note:  This tells me he hijacked Judaism from Abraham and the covenant God gave to the JEWS….and 564 years + after Jesus birth and Crucifixion, the beginning of Christianity, which did NOT begin in the Catholic church…(I’ll get to) but from the JEWS,  Jesus, (Rabbi in Matthew) Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, etc. ALL JEWS!    To me, this represents a FALSE God….During the early civilization of Abram when God took him out of UR and changed his name to Abraham, there was only one God then and now.  Jesus never took authority away from God the Father, but as the son, and WITH the Holy Spirit beckons us to come to the throne, with salvation.  For there is NONE other…Name above all names!

The Roman period began from AD 6 (AD 66 rebellion; AD 70 destruction of Herod’s Temple, AD 73 the fall of Masada.  About AD 70 was the Gospel of St. Mark. Between 75 and 95 Matthew and Luke, John 90 AD and apocalypse.  End of the 1st century, Acts of the Apostles and Gospel of St. John. Also the establishment of the Hebrew Bible canon at Jabneh, followed by Second Epistle of St. Peter…in 2nd century AD.  It was before this all that Jesus said in Matthew 22: 21 to the Temple money changers, “Render to Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.”  In AD 33 came the destruction of the Temple.  In 24:7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. ”  NOW! “All these are the beginnings of sorrows…”  First half of the great tribulation….like birthing pains…which this President Obama has ushered in doing the work of Satan himself!   And the world now for the first time in all of history, with all technolgy…the gospel has been preached in all the world for the first time!  All the  false religions, of which Islam is…

(Below…Jordanian Sheikh, attests that God gave Palestine to the JEWS!)

Matthew 26  (AD 33,  Jesus, 27 if born in AD6)  “Then assembled together together the Chief Priests and the Scribes, and the Elders of the people (members of the Sanhedrin), unto the palace of the High Priest, who was called CAIAPHAS. (It was Caiaphas a Roman who plotted to kill Christ….not fellow Jews. For the appointees in the Jewish Temple and Holy of Holies, and Rabbi’s then were appointed by Romans since the rules Jerusalem then.   For decades and decades the Catholic Church lied and in their “own” hate blamed fellow Jews for killing Jesus.  (And I know not what O’Reilly [a Catholic] wrote and who he blamed for Jesus death…But it was not JEWS!  Herod too, was a Roman and not a Jew.  He was born in Idumea his father Idumean, his mother Kypros, was ARAB!!  Herod died at 70 in 4 BC, 36 years after Rome made him a King.  Herod was born in southern Palestine. His father, Antipater, was an Edomite (an Arab from the region between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba).

WHEREFORE, it was the Caiphas, and the Roman soldiers and an Arab, Herod,  who killed Jesus!!   And Muhammad, wasn’t born until 570 AD, again… born 564 years AFTER Jesus.  AND the Catholic church and first Pope (540-604 ) Also after Jesus who was a JEW.  The Roman’s hijacked the Jewish religion the FIRST religion, and then the ONLY religion, into the Catholic Church…and so did the ARABS…Jesus was a Rabbi in the Temple, a Jew…and he never intended to have a new religion, ie Christianity.  That happened after his death with his disciples, especially the travel and witness by Apostle Paul.

Pope Gregory I (Gregorius I; c. 540 – 12 March 604), commonly known as Saint Gregory the Great, was Pope from 3 September 590 to his death in 604. Gregory is well known for his writings, which were more prolific than those of any of his predecessors as pope.  He is also known as St. Gregory the Dialogist in Eastern Christianity because of hisDialogues. For this reason, English translations of Eastern texts will sometimes list him as “Gregory Dialogus”. Throughout the Middle Ages he was known as “the Father of Christian Worship” because of his exceptional efforts in revising the Roman worship of his day.”  Wikepedia

Within the conciliar process Rome had always sustained a position of respect and leadership in the Christian world but the Roman Church and the Pope in particular never acted over the heads or apart from his brothers in the east. Sadly his was all to change in the 11th century.  It was the tragedy of the Great Schism in 1054 AD and the 4th Crusade in 1202/04 AD that finally separated Rome from Orthodoxy. The first dispute was theological with a significant prehistory of drifting apart. The second incident concerned a human tragedy caused by rampaging western Crusaders trashing Constantinople and its churches. More significant perhaps was what happened in the west after 1054. Going on to:  The “reforms” of Pope Gregory 7th (c. 1020/25) put the western part of the Church on a confrontational footing with the State by asserting Church and Papal supremacy.  Moreover, this Pope’s teaching and policies also put Rome on a collision course with Orthodoxy which continued to adhere to the ancient principles of local episcopal authority, conciliarity and a married clergy; all of which Pope Gregory sought to undermine.  Within a generation Rome and Constantinople were out of Communion and the so called Great Schism has remained as it was to the present day.

There has been slavery too, since the beginning of time, to Abraham.. After all Ishmael’s mother who was Arab, Hagar was Sarah’s handmaiden…(a slave!)  Moses too, the Egyptians, Arabs, slavery and persecution and slaughter of Christians and Jews have existed for thousands of years.  And…as I watch Genealogy Road Show on PBS…it seems that FREE BLACK SLAVES, here in America, also OWNED slaves.  So before the left points a finger, know your facts!

From Brigitte Gabriel: “It was in that setting that President Obama delivered remarks comparing the actions of the Islamic State to things done “in the name of Jesus Christ.” Among those things according to President Obama: slavery.

He then cited the Crusades.

Not only were his remarks inappropriate for the occasion and insulting to peace loving Christians everywhere, they were historically inaccurate.

In terms of slavery, while it is true that Christians owned slaves, slavery is not an integral part of Christian doctrine. Jesus did not own slaves. The same cannot be said of Islam. Mohammed owned many slaves and even shared concubines with his warriors. There are today forty different words in Arabic to describe slaves; that’s how prominent slavery has been in the Islamic world. The slave trade in Africa was largely run by Muslims. And when Western nations finally abolished the evil practice of slavery, that slave trade in Africa persisted without them. Remember, Saudi Arabia, the site of Islam’s holiest sites, did not outlaw slavery until the 1960s. Moreover, slavery is still practiced today in parts of Islamic Africa, notably Sudan.

But Obama’s biggest dose of disinformation came in the form of his remarks on the Crusades.

There is a myth that the Crusades were nothing but an aggressive series of wars in which Christendom attacked the Muslim world and committed atrocities.

The reality is somewhat different.

The Crusades actually began after centuries of Islamic jihad invading, pillaging and conquering Christian lands in present-day North Africa and parts of Europe.

After 400 years of systematic genocide of Christians at the hands of Islamic jihadists, Pope Urban II, acting on a plea from the Byzantine emperor whose people had been attacked by Muslim hoards, finally called on “Christ’s heralds” to sound the call for help for the Christians in the east and free the Holy Land.

So, the first Crusade was a defensive action in response to Islamic jihad.

This is an historical fact that our president unfortunately left out of his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast.”  *quote from ACT, Brigitte Gabriel

Muhammad (Arabic: محمد‎; c. 570 – 8 June 632[3]), full name Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim (ابو القاسم محمد ابن عبد الله ابن عبد المطلب ابن هاشم), from Mecca, unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. Believed by Muslims and Bahá’ís to be amessenger and prophet of God, Muhammad is almost universally[n 1] considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God to mankind.[4][n 2] While non-Muslims generally regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam,[5] Muslims consider him to have restored the unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam,Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets in Islam.[6][7][8][9]

Born approximately in 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca,[10][11] Muhammad was orphaned at an early age; he was raised under the care of his paternal uncle Abu Talib. After his childhood Muhammad primarily worked as a merchant.[12] Occasionally he would retreat to a cave in the mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer; later, at age 40, he reported at this spot,[10][13] that he was visited by Gabriel and received his first revelation from God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly, proclaiming that “God is One“, that complete “surrender” (lit. islām) to Him is the only way (dīn)[n 3] acceptable to God, and that he was a prophet and messenger of God, similar to other Islamic prophets.[14][15][16]

Muhammad gained few followers early on, and met hostility from some Meccan tribes. To escape persecution, Muhammad Abyssinia before he and his followers in Mecca migrated to Medina (then known as Yathrib) in the year 622. This event, the Hijra, marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar, also known as the Hijri Calendar. In Medina, Muhammad united the tribes under theConstitution of Medina. After eight years of fighting with the Meccan tribes, Muhammad gathered an army of 10,000 Muslim converts and marched on the city of Mecca. The attack went largely uncontested and Muhammad took over the city with little bloodshed. He destroyed the pagan idols in the city[17] and sent his followers out to destroy all remaining pagan temples in Eastern Arabia.[18][19] In 632, a few months after returning to Medina from the Farewell Pilgrimage, Muhammad fell ill and died. Before his death, most of theArabian Peninsula had converted to Islam, and he had united Arabia into a single Muslim religious polity.[20][21]

There is only ONE GOD…NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES!  THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END.  “THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GOD’S BEFORE THEE..”  God the Father, the Almighty…the CREATOR, cannot be reached by any of us unless through his son, Jesus Christ, who died knowingly on that CROSS at Calvary, shedding his blood for the sins of mankind.  The I AM!  My God is the only God of Abraham…and as a Gentile, I can only come to the Father through the son.  Beware of false prophets…They will lead you to hell.

My God heals, he saves, he molds us like clay in HIS image, he gives us love, as a Father does, and chastises us when we do wrong, so we repent of all evil.  He does not teach hate, and he does not advocate brutal killings…(The 10 Commandments).  Yet HE and only HE sitting on the right hand side of the Father, will be our final judge.  There is only one….In him do I serve…I shall  not keep silent!  “If my people, which are called by MY name shall humble themselves, (humility) and pray, 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. ”  II Chronicles 7:14
