End Time Babylon Is Modern Day Iraq

Et datum est illi, ut daret spiritum imagini bestiae, ut et loquatur imago bestiae; et faciat, ut quicumque non adoraverint imaginem bestiae, occidantur. (Revelation 13:15)

From the Old Testament, we know that the Garden of Eden was located at present day Iraq.

Anyone who knows the beginning knows also the end.

The Bible says that the Garden of Eden was located in modern day Iraq, at the Tigris and Euphrates river, see Genesis 2:10.

"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God", see Revelation 2:7.

The Apostle John wrote of a future for Iraq, which actually is Biblical end time Babylon.

The book of Revelation, chapter 17 - 18, reveals that Babylon, present day Iraq, will be the international headquarters for a one world government headed up by the Antichrist.

"Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces", see Daniel 2:34.

Before Babylon - modern day war torn Iraq - is destroyed, prior to the return of Jesus Christ from heaven to the Earth, see Revelation 16:19 - 20, it will be rebuilt by all nations.

"I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed", see Daniel 7:13 - 14, and compare with Matthew 24:30, Luke 1:32 - 33, Acts 1:10 - 11, Jude 1:14, and Revelation 1:7.

Vatican: Attempted Ordination Of Women Incurs Excommunication

Quis putas est fidelis servus et prudens, quem constituit Dominus suus supra familiam suam, ut det illis cibum in tempore? (Matthew 24:45)

The Vatican's doctrinal congregation has decreed formally that a woman who attempts to be ordained a Catholic Priest and the person attempting to ordain her are automatically excommunicated, see http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0802904.htm.

In Galatians we read: "there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28.

Now the Vatican reiterates that women are evil.

U.S. Cardinal William J. Levada, prefect of the congregation, who signed the decree that women are debased inferior creatures and evil persons without exception, said it was published "in order to protect the nature and validity" of the sacrament of holy orders.

We also know that the mandatory celibacy for the male clergy lies behind the many sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church, see http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2008/04/mandatory-celibacy-behind-clergy-sex.html.

It is written: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still", see Revelation 22:11.

We who call us Christians must attempt to change the deep rooted and evil nature of the Catholic Church, which cast its dark shadow on our Lord, our faith, and on the whole world.

Never hesitate to rebuke especially those who are part of Christ's household, when they are wrong and evil, because Christ Himself "made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven", see Colossians 1:20, and compare with 1 Peter 4:17.

And Christ is the King of the Jews, see John 19:19.

We should accept women as Priests as it is written: "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common", see Acts 10:15.

Furthermore we know "that God is no respecter of persons", see Acts 10:34.

Those who reiterates that women are unworthy, unholy, and filthy, are themselves lacking concerning civilization, courage, and intelligence.

However the real Priests are according to the New Testament "the sons of Levi", who have received the office of the Priesthood for ever, see Hebrews 7:5, and Revelation 4:10. And we know that God's gifts are irrevocable, compare with Romans 11:29.

But the Levites will have to accept women in the Priesthood as the New Testament Law teaches us. It is like when Moses gave women the right and obligation to inherit.

There is nothing tricky and complicated with the issue concerning admitting female Priests to the Priesthood. The only things needed is to be able to read the New Testament, and to be able to understand that "God is love", see 1 John 4:8, 16.

But obviously this is too much to demand from the Catholic Ship of Darkness.

We should nevertheless be reminded that Priests have the right to get married and found families, see for example 1 Timothy 3:2.

We live in a world where it sometimes seems like perversion is the rule, and therefore I just cannot believe that this huge organization with more than one billion members worldwide called the Catholic Church, still in this year 2008 is so stupid and contrary to women and married clergy, that it in this way rejects the Sacred Scripture - the New Testament.

Jesus entrusted the task of Ministerial Priesthood to persons of both the female and the male sex. To preach is both our right and our obligation.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, see 2 Corinthians 5:17.

The Apostle Peter understood that some women are given the gift of being great and effective Priests, compare with 1 Peter 4:10 - 11.

In the New Testament God both called and used women as Preachers. For example, Priscilla and Aquila - a married couple - both acted in the role of Priest to a man from Alexandria, see Acts 18:24 - 26.

The command to God's servants to "preach the gospel" in Mark 16:15, is thus to both female and male.

Other examples from the New Testament, which support the ordination of women, are when the Apostle Paul refers to Phebe as a Minister of the Church at Cenchrea, see Romans 16:1, and, when Paul commends the female Apostle Junia, as outstanding among the Apostles, see Romans 16:7.

The Catholic Church teaching that women cannot be ordained Priests is unbiblical, unworthy and belongs to the trash heap of history.

And do not forget the Two Witnesses, see Revelation 11:5.

"For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil", see Romans 13:4.

NASA's Mars Lander Phoenix Puts Arm And Other Tools To Work

Et erunt signa in sole et luna et stellis, et in terris pressura gentium prae confusione sonitus maris et fluctuum. (Luke 21:25)

Now you can listen to Phoenix descend, http://www.esa.int/SPECIALS/Mars_Express/SEMAWQ1YUFF_1.html.

NASA's Mars lander is returning more detailed images from the Martian surface and is now preparing its instruments for science operations, see http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/phoenix/news/phoenix-20080529.html.

NASA's Phoenix Mars lander flexed its robotic arm Thursday in a successful test of the key element in the probe's mission to investigate the Red Planet's soil for conditions conducive to life, NASA said, see http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080529210758.ms17hsz5&show_article=1&catnum=0.

"We're pleased that we successfully unstowed the robotic arm. In fact, this is the first time we have moved the arm in about a year", said Matthew Robinson of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The arm deployment brings the Phoenix mission to a significant milestone.

The 2.35 meter- (7.7 foot-) titanium and aluminum backhoe-like extension, with a scoop on the end to dig into the Martian arctic permafrost-like soil, unlatched its arm-locks by command from the JPL, lifted its forearm and then freed its elbow restraint.

"We have achieved all of our engineering characterization prerequisites, with all the critical deployments behind us", said JPL's Barry Goldstein, Phoenix project manager. "We're now at a phase of the mission where we're characterizing the science payload instruments. That's a very important step for us".

With its hard scoop on the end, the arm can dig a half-meter (20 inches) into Martian soil, where scientists hope to prove the existence of water in its liquid form and organic minerals, both of which need to be present for the existence of microbial life, see http://www.nasa.gov/phoenix.

Faith Succeeds Where Politics Fails

Et ostendit mihi fluvium aquae vitae splendidum tamquam cristallum procedentem de sede Dei et Agni. (Revelation 22:1)

Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that only fanatics can believe that in this day and age, and in the current situation, it is still possible to cling to the vision of Greater Israel, see http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3547986,00.html.

But the fact is that the Biblical promises are continually being reaffirmed by the Jewish return to its homeland in Zion.

Olmert says: "Today we face the choice between Greater Israel and a Jewish nation – the two are mutually exclusive".

For me it is beyond comprehension how it is possible to utter so much rubbish with so few words.

Both the Old and the New Testament speak of one Israel - the same "Greater Israel" - which is the country that was given by God to all Jews, and which is ten times bigger than today's Israel, compare with Acts 1:6, and Revelation 12:1.

Romans 11:1 in the New Testament explains that God never will cast away His people, and in Romans 11:29 we read that God's gifts are irrevocable.

"Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?", see Matthew 8:26.

Jimmy de Young writes in Bible Prophecy Today: "PM Olmert has been the leader of a number of giveaways of Israeli land, i.e. the Gaza Strip Jewish settlements and is now ready to give away the Golan Heights and 90 percent of all of Judea and Samaria, including the Temple Mount in Jerusalem", see http://bible-prophecy-today.blogspot.com/2008/05/israeli-pm-ehud-olmert-calls-people-who.html.

De Young continues: "PM Olmert is wrong. There will be a greater Israel in the future", and I agree.

It is serious to go against the hopes and the will of your own people, and it gets really troublesome, when you furthermore reject God's gifts and promises.

"Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin", see Isaiah 30:1.

Sodom and Gomorrah Precursors Of Hiroshima And Nagasaki

Omnem palmitem in me non ferentem fructum tollet eum; et omnem, qui fert fructum, purgabit eum, ut fructum plus adferat. (John 15:2)

Sodom and Gomorrah, was precursors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which chose the wrong side during WW2.

"But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed", see Luke 17:29 - 30, and compare with Revelation 9:18.

In consequence, the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki sound the alert that Jesus Christ is coming very soon.

God gave every inch of the Holy Land to Israel - from the river Nile unto the great river Euphrates, see Genesis 15:18 and Joshua 1:4.

This would have to be considered to be "greater Israel", and thus everything from the Nile to the Euphrates including the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, portions of Iraq, and presumably, all of Jordan and parts of what today is Arabia, will belong to Israel, when the Jewish people will obey the Lord God.

Until the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, modern mankind could not imagine any weapon as horrible and devastating as those described in the New Testament.

"Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up", see Matthew 15:13.

Christ foretold this horrendous event as a warning to mankind to never harm the Jews - the apple of His eye - and also as a sign that He will reappear very soon:

Thus we must build up ourselves on our most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, see Jude 1:20, so that the Lord God will say: "Well done, good and faithful servant", see Matthew 25:23, and not as in Jeremiah 11:16: "The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken", and compare with Romans 11:17.

Israel Must Not Cede One Inch Of The Holy Land

Diligite inimicos vestros, benefacite his, qui vos oderunt. (Luke 6:27)

"Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife", see Proverbs 17:1, and compare with Revelation 12:14.

MK Arieh Eldad (National Union-National Religious Party) said Monday that "anyone who gives away Israeli territory, under Israel's law, deserves the death penalty", see http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/987214.html.

Eldad said the punishment for anyone who acts to hand over state controlled territory to others "is life imprisonment or death", referring to the Golan Heights.

Eldad spoke after Israel and Syria announced last week that Jerusalem and Damascus had renewed indirect peace talks via Turkey, which sparked speculations that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised Syria an Israeli pullout from the Golan Heights in the run-up to the announcement.

The Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Bureau issued an official response, saying "the man and the remark are not worthy of a response".

MK Zevulun Orlev (NRP) lashed out at fellow party member Arye Eldad Monday evening after the latter said in reference to negotiations with Syria that anyone who acts to hand over Israeli territory to others should be punished with "death", see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1211434112833&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

"I heard your statement with shock...and could not believe my eyes or ears", Orlev wrote to Eldad. "Before we have recovered as a society and a nation from the politically motivated murder of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, comes your call which gives approval for another political murder of a prime minister".

Orlev wrote that despite Eldad's referral to treason laws, it was obvious that his comments were perceived as - and could be interpreted as - a call to assassinate the prime minister. This, he wrote, was completely unacceptable according to the law and Jewish "halacha", and could lead to "the collapse of democracy".

Orlev is absolutely right, even if I can understand the trauma of Eldad, knowing that the Babylonians were the first to destroy the City and the Sanctuary, see Daniel 9:26, and compare with Revelation 9:11 and Revelation 17:5.

Anyone who knows the beginning knows also the end.

President Shimon Peres on Monday night issued a statement castigating MK Arye Eldad (NRP) for incitement, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1211434112640&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

President Shimon Peres declared that regardless of any political opinion, no one in Israel has the right in the course of the political debate to use language that can lead to violence.

Israeli values are based on democracy and Jewish morality is enshrined in the law, stated Peres.

Of course President Shimon Peres is right, and my opinion is that Israel must not cede one inch of land, because God gave the Promised Land to the Israelites, see Romans 11:29, and there are Two Witnesses, both the Old and the New Testament, see Genesis 15:18 and Acts 1:6.

But Eldad should remember that it is written: "Judge not, that ye be not judged", see Matthew 7:1.

It is also written that: "there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek", see Romans 10:12, because the Jews received the Old Testament, whereas the Greeks were given the Greek Oracles and Democracy, which Alexander the Great, made victorious.

On one side we have the wise Jews and Greeks, and on the other side the unwise Barbarians, compare with Romans 1:14. But we have to listen to all and to learn from all.

However, through the New Testament, God was made manifest, see 1 Timothy 3:16 and Hebrews 1:3, and with the Lord God the New Testament Democratic Law of Liberty was made manifest in Latin as well, see Matthew 5:18, Hebrews 8:6 - 8, and 1 Peter 1:25.

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage", see Galatians 5:1, and compare with Galatians 3:28.

"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed", see James 1:25.

If we can do good to the Egyptians we should do it, because whether our ancestors were Roman or Jewish, they lived in their land.

With the Arabs it should be the same, if possible, because the Arabs honor Alexander the Great as the great man he was, and even if Jesus - our Lord God, see Titus 2:13 - is misinterpreted, their intention is still good.

The New Testament furthermore says that all Israel is given to the Jewish people, see Romans 11:26 and Revelation 14:20.

When magic is treated as real, darkness has no power over it.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

Hillary Clinton Is The Best Choice For The Next American President

Amen, amen dico tibi: Nisi quis natus fuerit denuo, non potest videre regnum Dei. (John 3:3)

From my point of view Hillary Clinton is the best choice for the next American President.

Barack Obama accuses President Bush of complicity in the rise of Hugo Chavez, referring to Venezuela's autocratic President, see http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2008/05/24/obama_bush_fostered_chvez_rise/.

Like President George W. Bush, both the Democratic Presidential candidates embrace the Fatah terror group as a legitimate organization and acceptable repository of Palestinian sovereignty.

Both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama have hinted that they may be willing to open negotiations with Hamas, and both argue that the establishment of a Palestinian state will be a key foreign policy objective of their administrations, see http://www.carolineglick.com/e/2008/04/obama_the_savior.asp.

It is clear that Barack Obama constitutes a danger for Israel, with his Pro-Palestinian ties, see http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/05/22/obama-grilled-on-ties-to-pro-palestinian-professor/.

Senator Obama has worked with Arab terrorists, see http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=57231, and furthermore Senator Obama's former Pastor, often delivered racially charged sermons.

Senator Clinton has a more realistic national security policy for the US than Senator Obama.

Whether Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama will be the next US President, it is sure that their tax hikes and economic protectionism could exacerbate the current US recession.

But Senator John McCain has lost all credibility by twisting and labeling Pastor John Hagee's words as Anti-Semitic, when Hagee was lecturing on one Jewish perspective of the Holocaust, see http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080524/32515_Pastor_Says_Parting_with_McCain_Best_for_Both.htm.

McCain has faced a barrage of criticism over Hagee, with some comparing the situation to the controversy Democrat Barack Obama faced over the views of his longtime and now former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, see http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080523/32494_McCain_Rejects_Pastor%27s_Endorsement.htm.

Senator McCain has also repudiated the support of Pastor Rod Parsley, an Ohio preacher who has sharply criticized Islam and called the religion inherently violent.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Senator John McCain said he rejected Parsley's support, too.

McCain told the AP: "I believe there is no place for that kind of dialogue in America, and I believe that even though he endorsed me, and I didn't endorse him, the fact is that I repudiate such talk, and I reject his endorsement".

I have come to the conclusion that the best choice for America is to choose Hillary Clinton as the next US President, because she will conduct a more responsible and realistic administration, and also work for and establish better relations and ties with Europe, Christians, and Israel.

Rioting In Brussels: Belgian Police Detains 200

Nolite arbitrari quia venerim mittere pacem in terram; non veni pacem mittere sed gladium. (Matthew 10:34)

Police have detained nearly 200 youths after rioting in Brussels sparked by a simmering dispute between rival groups after a soccer match, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1211434091725&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

Police spokesman Gerald Noon says 26 people, including 14 police officers, were injured in the clashes late Friday that officers believe were prearranged by troublemakers over the Internet, compare with http://www.lesoir.be/regions/bruxelles/emeutes-violences-urbaines-2008-05-23-600562.shtml.

The clashes also led to considerable material damage, and the riot follows incidents last Sunday in the margin of the Belgian Cup in which Anderlecht fans clashed with immigrants, compare with http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/957/Belgie/article/detail/287846/2008/05/24/193-arrestaties-na-rellen-Anderlecht.dhtml.

We Must Stand By Pastor John Hagee

Beati pacifici, quoniam filii Dei vocabuntur. (Matthew 5:9)

Republican John McCain Thursday rejected the backing of Texas Pastor John Hagee, when it was revealed, that Pastor Hagee believed the Nazis did God's will by chasing Jews from Europe, see http://www.france24.com/en/20080523-mccain-rejects-evangelical-leader-over-nazi-remarks.

The Huffington Post website published comments by John Hagee that Adolf Hitler was a "hunter" sent by God to herd Jews to the land of Israel.

"Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them", John McCain said.

McCain continued: "I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee's endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well".

John McCain's intention may be good, but it is nevertheless stupid to reject Hagee's endorsement on this ground, because Pastor Hagee is well known for his Pro-Israeli position, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpRwH3yQ-44.

It would be interesting to hear from John McCain, which purpose he thinks God had with the Holocaust.

God has defined the boundaries of the Holy Land, and given it to the Jewish people as a birthright for all eternity.

Pastor Hagee, whose endorsement was sought by McCain in February, was quoted by the Huffington Post on Thursday as saying that the sermon about Hitler and the Jews had been "intentionally mischaracterized" and was a "gross example of bias".

"To assert that I in any way condone the Holocaust or that monster Adolf Hitler is the biggest and ugliest of lies", Hagee said in a statement to the website.

"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath", see James 1:19.

John Hagee - a well-known Tele-Evangelist - founded the strongly Pro-Israel Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. It has 19.000 members, according to his website, see http://www.jhm.org/ME2/Default.asp.

Today, we are in the midst of a very acute and important political development in the Middle East.

Christian leaders must therefore not allow our great and victorious faith to be runned over by sleazy ideologies headed by sloppy political figures.

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ", see Colossians 2:8.

If we are real friends of Israel, we must show our support for Pastor John Hagee, seeing that Pastor Hagee is far more Pro-Israeli than for example President Bush, who wants to give away portions of the Holy Land to the enemies of Israel.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner also said Friday that "nothing justifies" Israeli settlement expansion and ongoing construction in Israeli settlements, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1211434087566&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

This further shows that Israel has no real friends, except for the Christian Church, and compare with Revelation 12:17.

8 Months Pregnant Man: "Unfortunately They Don't Do Maternity Clothes For Men"

Vae autem praegnatibus et nutrientibus in illis diebus! (Matthew 24:19)

The first pregnant male in history was pictured a couple of days ago taking care of his lawn with a visible baby bump under his tee-shirt, see http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/topstories/2008/05/20/the-world-s-first-pregnant-man-eight-months-gone-cutting-the-lawn-89520-20423249/.

Thomas Beatie is officially male and lives with his wife Nancy, 45, in Oregon, USA, but is carrying a baby and is due to give birth to it in six weeks.

Thomas Beatie, who was born Tracey Lagondino, began the sex change 10 years ago, with injections of the male hormone testosterone, which prompted the growth of thicker facial hair, and had a double mastectomy.

He says: "Wanting to have a child is neither a male nor female desire, but a human desire".

And, grass trimmer in hand and baby bump proudly on display, this could be just another suburban mum-to-be tending to the lawn - were it not for the wispy, telltale beard.

He says: "To our neighbours, my wife Nancy and I don't appear in the least unusual. We're a happy couple deeply in love. My belly is growing with a new life inside me. I am stable and confident being the man that I am".

He adds: "Unfortunately there is no such thing as man-ternity clothes".

We certainly live in a changing world.

In Europe, Catholic leaders have taken the wise decision to back adult stem cell research as a sign of the Church’s commitment to science and human good, see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/catholic.leaders.back.adult.stem.cell.research/18965.htm.

The Presidents of the Catholic Bishops’ conferences of England & Wales, Scotland and Ireland have announced the award of a £25.000 grant, funded from a special Day for Life collection, to support adult stem cell research in the UK.

"We support scientific research that seeks to cure disease and suffering", said Cardinal Sean Brady, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor and Cardinal Keith O'Brien.

This week, MPs in the Commons voted on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (HFE) Bill in favour of the creation of animal-human embryos to be used in stem cell research.

The Shroud Of Turin Is Real, Indeed!

Gaudium enim Domini est fortitudo nostra. (Nehemiah 8:10)

"And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain", see John 20:12.

The WorldNetDaily reports that questions are raised over faulty carbon-dating tests concerning the Turin Shroud, see http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=64881.

The Turin Shroud is presently in the custody of the Vatican, which stores it in a protective chamber of inert gases in Turin's Cathedral of St. John.

People used to think that the Shroud of Turin - a 14-foot-long burial cloth of Jesus - was the real burial cloth of Christ, until scientists reported radiocarbon dating established the Shroud only was from Medieval times.

The Shroud has posed mysteries for a long time, because of its age, and its negative image of a bloodstained and battered man Who has been crucified.

Christian believers claim the Turin Shroud to be the miraculous image of Jesus Christ, formed as He rose from the dead.

That theory, however, took a serious blow in the late 1980s when scientists came up with results that the Shroud was no older than from the the 13th or 14th century.

John Jackson - a physics lecturer at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, who runs the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado - has convinced Prof. Christopher Ramsey, head of the Oxford University Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit, to test Jackson's hypothesis that carbon monoxide contamination could have skewed the test results by more than 1.000 years.

History reveals the Shroud of Christ was exhibited in France by Geoffroi de Charny, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geoffroi_de_Charny, a French knight who owned it then.

The findings of John Jackson include that the bloodstains on the Shroud are real, and consistent with crucifixion, and that the stitching found in the material had been seen in material from only one other source: the ruins of Masada, a Jewish settlement destroyed in A.D. 74.

The herringbone weave was furthermore common in the First Century, but rare during the Middle Ages, and tests have revealed pollens on the Shroud from plants that grow only in the Middle East.

The Shroud's onetime owner, de Charny, was married to a direct descendant of a crusader from France, who participated in the sacking of Constantinople.

Some scientists in Russia have reported seeing major shifts in the radiocarbon date of linen samples that have been incubated at modest temperatures.

This is very interesting because the Shroud endured a significant thermal event during a fire in 1532, while in Chambrey, France. The entire Shroud has yellowed and in some places it is scorched and burnt.

Experts say that based on the Russian studies, it is logical to suspect that the 1532 fire perhaps significantly altered the radiocarbon date of the Shroud.

Thus the Shroud of Turin is not a hoax, but Christ's real Shroud.

"And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven", see Acts 1:10 - 11.

Orthodox Jews Burn The New Testament

Verumtamen inimicos meos illos, qui noluerunt me regnare super se, adducite huc et interficite ante me! (Luke 19:27)

"And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them", see Revelation 11:12.

Orthodox Jews set fire to hundreds of copies of the New Testament in the latest act of violence against Christian Missionaries in the Holy Land, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1211288128607&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

"And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?", see 2 Corinthians 6:15.

The newspaper Maariv reported Tuesday that hundreds of yeshiva students took part in the book-burning.

Or Yehuda Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon said Missionaries entered a neighborhood in the predominantly religious town of 34.000 in central Israel, and distributed hundreds of New Testaments and Missionary material.

Uzi Aharon said after receiving complaints, that he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and drove through the neighborhood, urging people to turn over the material to Jewish Religious students who went door to door to collect it.

"The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a Synagogue", Aharon said.

He continued: "I certainly don't denounce the burning of the booklets. I denounce those who distributed the booklets".

"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair", see 2 Corinthians 4:8.

Proselytizing is frowned upon in Israel, but is not illegal in most cases.

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost", see Matthew 28:19.

Last year, arsonists burst into a Jerusalem Church used by Messianic Jews, and set the building on fire, raising suspicions that Jewish extremists were behind the attack.

No one claimed responsibility, but the same Church was burned down 25 years ago by ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists.

We Must All Try To Bring Others To Christ

Et Verbum caro factum est et habitavit in nobis; et vidimus gloriam eius, gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis. (John 1:14)

According to the Christian Post, Pope Benedict XVI affirms the right to convert non-believers to Christianity.

"Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth", see 1 Timothy 2:4.

Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday that the Roman Catholic Church has the indisputable right and duty to convert anyone to Christianity, see http://christianpost.com/article/20080519/32417_Pope_Affirms_Right_to_Convert_Non-Believers_to_Christianity.htm.

The Church’s central mission is Evangelism, Pope Benedict XVI firmly told a Vatican body responsible for encouraging Catholic Missionary activity, according to Agence France-Presse.

"Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins", see 1 John 4:10.

Pope Benedict XVI said that Jesus Christ, as recorded in the Gospels, called on the conversion of "all nations", and that this commission remains an obligatory mandate for the entire Church and for every believer in Christ.

I fully agree with Pope Benedict XVI, who is a brilliant speaker and who is exactly right.

I like what Pope Benedict XVI says more and more. Of course we have an obligation to spread the Christian faith, see Matthew 28:19 - 20, and Mark 16:15.

"For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them", see Luke 9:56.

Franklin Graham Under Fire For Olympic Evangelism Comment

Haec autem oportuit facere et illa non omittere. (Luke 11:42)

Franklin Graham, the eldest son of renowned Evangelist Billy Graham, said to Chinese reporters during his recent trip to mainland China, that he opposes Missionary work during the Olympic Games, because it is prohibited under Chinese Law, and he does not encourage anything illegal.

Obviously Franklin Graham has forgotten that all the first Christians were illegal.

It is clear that Franklin Graham neither is Roman nor Imperialist. Yet it is written that "We ought to obey God rather than men", see Acts 5:29.

When the Apostle Paul got enlightened he understood what it was all about, see Philippians 3:6 - 8.

As Christians, we have the Lord's command to go into all the world, and to preach the gospel to every creature, see Mark 16:15.

The New Testament is given to us as the New Law - the New Torah - see Matthew 5:18, Hebrews 8:6, and 1 Peter 1:25, to bring all Nations and Gentiles obedient by word and deed to the Lord God, see Romans 1:5 and 16:26.

We should be nice to nice people. But God did not intend us to be nice to evil people, but to Frankly tell them the truth, because they can change just as we have changed.

Jesus said: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance", see Mark 2:17.

It is true that Leopards can not change their spots, but as Moshe Dayan said, only Donkeys are too stubborn to change their opinions.

Often, trained members of both Communist and Nazi parties can be brilliant and courageous individuals. But even when they are brainwashed by propaganda, culture, and tradition, teach them to observe all things Christ commanded us, see Matthew 28:20.

You will overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world, see 1 John 4:4.

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you", see James 4:7.

The respected Religious freedom activist Bob Fu defends Chinese house Church Christians as "law-abiding, patriotic citizens" who are not doing anything wrong by following their faith which teaches them to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Bob Fu said in a statement on Wednesday, that Christians cannot and will not concede to a "faith moratorium" in order to please an atheistic government during the Olympic Games, even if that means enduring imprisonment and torture.

Bob Fu, who recently was honored by President Bush for his Religious freedom advocacy in China, denounced the Chinese Law as unjust because it asked Christians to go against the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Bob Fu calls Graham’s comment about submitting to the ban on Olympic Evangelism "a deep offense" to the hundreds of house Church prisoners and their family members.

The Spirit of Greece and of the Olympic tradition is the Spirit of Freedom, which Alexander the Great manifested, and which God afterwards sharpened and made victorious through Jesus Christ, see John 8:32 and Galatians 5:1, 13.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place", see 2 Corinthians 2:14.

The Real Bust Of Julius Caesar Found

In manu artificium opera laudabitur. (Sirach 9:24)

A marble bust - believed to be the oldest representation of Julius Caesar - has been discovered at the bottom of the river Rhône in France, see http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article3932198.ece.

"For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad", see Luke 8:17.

Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

The bust of Julius Caesar, which has a broken nose, dates from between 49 and 46 BC, when Caesar was in his 50s - a few years before he was assassinated by nobles in the senate house - the period when Caesar founded the Roman colony of Arles, to thank the town for helping him to conquer the nearby port of Marseille.

If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments...

The French Culture Minister, Christine Albanel, triumphantly claims the bust is "the most ancient representation of Caesar known today", see http://arts.guardian.co.uk/art/news/story/0,,2279991,00.html.

24 hours in a day ... 24 beers in a case ...coincidence?

Luc Long, the Ministry of Culture Archaeologist who found the bust along with other treasures last autumn, said: "It is the only known bust of the living Caesar - except for the Mask of Turin, which was made just before or after his death. Even in Rome, no one has found a portrait of the living Caesar".

Support bacteria - they are the only culture some people have.

The riddle that remains is why the bust ended up at the bottom of the river in the town dubbed "Little Rome in Gaul".

Change is inevitable....except from vending machines.

Michel L'Hour, the head of the French Government's team for subaquatic archaeological research says: "Perhaps this bust was thrown into the river after Caesar was assassinated because that was a difficult time to be considered a follower of his. Or was it dumped because Caesar was becoming a tyrant who wanted to kill the republic and become emperor? It could have belonged to an important person, or it could have been placed on a public building".

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

Michel L’Hour also emphasizes that it was common for residents of ancient towns to throw unwanted goods into the river.

If at first you do not succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

The find was made in October 2007, but it has been kept quiet until now so the site would not be disturbed.

Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow.

Jesuits: Zimbabwe Is "Bleeding To Death"

Si Deus pro nobis, quis contra nos? (Romans 8:31)

The inflation in Zimbabwe has gone through the roof in the country: £1 equates to 400 million Zimbabwean dollars, according to Ashleigh Callow from Jesuit Missions.

Callow says: "Zimbabwe is quietly bleeding to death while politicians debate and deliberate".

Christian Today reports that another person described the situation as very bad: "It seems as if there is no one who can challenge this man (President Robert Mugabe)! Oh, our whole world is beautiful but Zimbabwe is becoming a house of horror. No food. No home. No health. No proper education", see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/zimbabwe.bleeding.to.death.say.jesuits/18801.htm.

"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil", see Ephesians 5:15 - 16.

Ashleigh Callow from Jesuit Missions, which is hoping to raise awareness of the crisis by running in the Edinburgh Marathon Hairy Haggis Relay on 25 May continues: "For Zimbabweans, silence kills, so we’re asking people to speak out and lobby their local MPs. Our runners are aware of the obstacles and challenges that lie before them. But they won’t be forced into having to run the 26 miles again. That’s the situation that Zimbabweans find themselves in: forced into a re-run despite having gone the distance at the elections on 29 March".

Police Protection For "Mohammed Pulpit"

Si hi tacuerint, lapides clamabunt! (Luke 19:40)

Recently we have heard of provocative Danish cartoons and Geert Wilders's Fitna movie.

These political manifestations have not much to do with modern Christian Religious worship, but they rather represent the sentiment of the merciless street.

Europe is a Christian continent, but some of our politicians want more Muslims among us, and they sometimes create problems, compare with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZNx0xHe0p0&eurl=http://www.brusselsjournal.com/.

Today the police has to protect the pulpit of a Catholic Church in Belgium, where the pulpit dates from 1685, two years after the battle of Vienna when Christian armies defeated Muslims.

The sculpted wooden pulpit, depicts Mohammed in a Persian robe holding the Koran. Mohammed is subdued by angels, and this old sculpture represents the triumph of Christianity over Islam, see http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/3249.

What will the situation in Europe be in 5 - 10 years? Will there be enough policemen to place in all our old Churches?

When Church buildings not are protected we know the sad result too well, see http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080428/32154_The_Last_Church_Standing_in_North_Cyprus.htm.

There will always be refugees, who need our help, but general immigration is basically a mistake, because God "hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation", see Acts 17:26.

Are you trusting Christ alone for your salvation? Well, Christianity will in fact triumph over Islam, see Matthew 25:32, Luke 19:27, Galatians 4:30, and Revelation 19:15.

European history is indeed filled with wars between Christianity and its enemies.

Concerning the gospel, it is written: "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds", see 2 John 1:10 - 11.

Thus, we should always accept foreigners and be generous, except when they come with damnable heresies, which we should go and prevent in the first place, see Mark 16:15.

There is a long tradition of depicting Mohammed in European iconography, and this is our history and our culture, whether we like it or not.

Besides, we should never try to understand any artwork, because it is solely made for the purpose of being observed.

If we are children of Alexander the Great, Hellenism, democracy and freedom, then we have the Spirit of the ever conquering occident, mixed with the superb and refined oriental capability given us through the Jewish people and the New Testament, and made effective by the Romans through Christ.

Among other examples of peculiar Christian art in Europe, we have an Italian Church with an early Renaissance Fresco, dating from 1415, which depicts Mohammed being tortured in Hell.

It is clear that the Europeans throughout the ages have been - and still are - concerned about the future of our continent and its culture.

But the well-being of all nations is tied to Israel's prosperity and security.

Europe is a Christian continent, and we believe that Christ died for our sins once for all, compare with 1 Peter 3:18.

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved", see Acts 4:12.

Happy Birthday, Israel!

In propria venit. (John 1:11)

"Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh", see John 12:15.

Christians have a New Testament mandate, to support the Jewish people and modern Israel, whose rebirth in 1948 is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, compare with Acts 1:6, until Jesus Christ returns to His own, see Revelation 19:11.

"Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints", see Jude 1:14.

Reverend John Hagee, for example, urges Christians to speak up and stand up for Israel, see http://www.cufi.org/site/PageServer.

The dangers facing Israel, with an Iranian-backed, Islamized state of Palestine, have also a spiritual dimension.

"And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein", see Zechariah 13:8, and compare with Matthew 24:21, Romans 11:5, and Revelation 11:10.

Israel is the longest-lived democracy in the Middle East, and no wonder: "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek", see Romans 10:12, and compare also with Revelation 12:1.

Romans 11:26 states: "And so all Israel shall be saved".

We know that "salvation is of the Jews", see John 4:22.

"Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world", see John 18:37, and 19:19.

But Israel consists also of eleven "Lost Tribes", compare with 1 Kings 12:20, Matthew 10:6, and John 10:16.

In Matthew 4:15 - 16 it is consequently written: "The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up".

We know from history that the land of Zabulon is the Netherlands, and that the land of Nephthalim is Sweden.

The Apostle Matthew speaks of the people of Zabulon and Nephthalim as of one people in singular. Thus we know that Northern Europe will be united during Christ's millennial reign.

The darkness spoken of, is the result of a nuclear attack by terrorists, maybe on Denmark, compare with Revelation 12:17.

But the great light, which will spring up is the return of our Lord.

"For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be", see Matthew 24:27.

British Airways Takes Beef Off The Menu

Omnia munda mundis. (Titus 1:15)

British Airways has taken beef off the menu for economy passengers amid concerns about its "religious restrictions", see http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23483255-details/British+Airways+takes+beef+off+the+menu+to+avoid+offending+Hindus/article.do.

BA's second-biggest long-haul market is to India, where the majority Hindu population do not eat beef because of their beliefs.

A BA spokesman said it stopped serving beef to economy class passengers last month.

He added: "We can only serve two options and beef and pork obviously have religious restrictions".

The airline has instead switched to a fish pie or chicken dish option for the so-called "cattle class" passengers.

Why should Christians be prohibited to eat their favorite food, only because Muslims or Hindus do not eat it?

God commands us to not be "unequally yoked together with unbelievers", see 2 Corinthians 6:14.

"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils", see 1 Corinthians 10:21.

The New Testament states the no food is unclean in itself, and compare with Romans 14:14 and 1 Corinthians 10:25.

The Vatican Gives Latin An Online Boost

Omnia autem probate, quod bonum est tenete. (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

The Roman Catholic Church, has given Latin a 21st Century boost by launching a website in Latin, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7393548.stm.

The Vatican website now has a section - Sancta Sedes (Holy See) - with Latin Papal texts and religious works, see http://www.vatican.va/latin/latin_index.html.

Pope Benedict XVI is an advocate of Latin, and he is for example promoting the saying of Mass in Latin.

Pope Benedict XVI has encouraged the use of Latin in seminaries where new Priests are trained, and last year he lifted restrictions on celebrating the Latin Tridentine Mass.

All ancient Church documents were written in Latin, and the Mass used to be said only in Latin.

In recent years Latin has fallen out of favor, but Pope Benedict XVI wants the Catholic Church to promote the sacred Latin language, and after his election to the Papacy three years ago, he addressed the Church's Cardinals in Latin.

Father Reginald Foster - an American Priest who is the Pope's official Latinist - praises the virtues and the clarity of the Latin language.

Let us all hope, that Latin one day soon, also will be the official language for all countries in the whole world.

Thank You Pope Benedict XVI for promoting the Latin language.

I absolutely agree with the words of the Lord: "Well done, good and faithful servant", see Matthew 25:23.

Ahmadinejad: Israel Is A "Stinking Corpse"

Reddite ergo, quae sunt Caesaris, Caesari et, quae sunt Dei, Deo. (Matthew 22:21)

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday, that the state of Israel is a "stinking corpse", that is destined to disappear, the French news agency AFP reported, see http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1209627040670&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull.

Ahmadinejad said: "Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken".

Ahmadinejad is reported to also have said: "Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned and this regime is on its way to annihilation".

Then he further stated that Israel "has reached the end like a dead rat after being slapped by the Lebanese" - referring to the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006.

It is clear that the Jewish people, and the state of Israel, need our protection and prayers, as some nations intend to be foolish enough to bring harm to Israel, see Daniel 12:1, and Matthew 24:21.

Neither a person nor a nation can sin and win, because Satan can not win, compare with 2 Peter 2:4.

Teenagers Use Corpse Head To Smoke Pot

Ubi est, mors, victoria tua? Ubi est, mors, stimulus tuus? (1 Corinthians 15:55)

Three teenagers recently dug up a body from the grave of an 11-year-old boy, who died in 1921, and decapitated the corpse.

Then they used the corpse head as pothead to smoke marijuana.

Myself, I do not know how to use a skull to smoke, and I do not want to know.

Christianity Has Nothing To Do With Black Magic

Forsan miseros meliora sequentur. (Virgil)

According to BosNewsLife, a local Christian leader in India was killed one month ago, because his faith in Christ was wrongly understood, see http://www.worthynews.com/christian/christian-leader-killed-in-india-for-black-magic/.

Thakur Sing Bhi was killed April 3, in Gatiya Dev village, by his own brother, who believed Christianity was Black Magic.

The Christian leader, who was in his 50s, had faced opposition from relatives after converting to Christianity.

Relatives said his brother, identified as a middle-aged man, was especially angry about the conversion. He allegedly entered the house in a drunken rage at noon and shot an arrow into his chest from close range.

India is a mainly Hindu nation and militants reject the spread of Christianity in the country.

This case has underscored growing tensions in rural areas of India, where Christians, including many converts from Hinduism, are reportedly facing growing opposition.

The main difference between Black Magic and Christianity, is that in Black Magic Satan is the center of the ritual, but that in Christianity, it is the Lord God.

According to Galatians 5:20, Christians should repent of witchcraft and sorcery, and compare with Romans 8:38.

But Jesus did many magical miracles; for example He raised Lazarus from the dead, see John 11:1 - 45, and Jairus' daughter, see Luke 8:54 - 55, and He was Himself Resurrected, see Matthew 28:1 - 10.

Christ healed lepers, paralytics and demoniacs. He healed a dumb man, a deaf man, and a blind man, and He also healed many in the Temple in Jerusalem, see Matthew 21:14.

"And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins", see 1 Corinthians 15:17, compare with Acts 13:11.

Jesus also miraculously fed 5000 persons, transformed water to wine, calmed the sea, walked on water, and He also did many other miracles.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it", see John 14:12 - 14.

Russian Orthodox Church: EU Must Protect Christians

Sine ira et studio. (Tacitus)

According to Christian Today, the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church, demands that the European Union does more to protect Christians worldwide, see http://www.christiantoday.com/article/russian.orthodox.church.rep.eu.needs.to.protect.christians/18630.htm.

Bishop Hilarion of Vienna and Austria - the Russian Orthodox Church representative to the European Institutions - speaks up for persecuted Christians.

He did so during a meeting between EU officials and some 20 European Religious leaders in Brussels, Belgium.

He reminded officials of Europe’s Christian heritage, and called on the EU to help preserve the continent’s history and identity.

Bishop Hilarion mentioned for example, that Christian Churches are being ruined, and that thousands of Christians are homeless and banished in Kosovo.

He added that this also is the case of the Cypriot area, which is illegally occupied by Turkish forces, where Churches are destroyed and Christians are suffering.

Bishop Hilarion said that Turkey seeks the accession to the European Union, but that it disregards the needs of its Christian population.

The European Union has recently become the leading Superpower in the world, with some 600 million citizens in 27 countries.

But the EU must do more on the ground, to further expand, in order to become the de facto leading Superpower in the world.

All the Mediterranean countries must be included in the EU, as well as Russia, and then there will be a new more important role for Constantinople to play.

I agree with Bishop Hilarion that Religious minorities should be protected, as it is written: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still", see Revelation 22:11.

It is thus clear that the European Union should do more for the protection of Christians, both inside and outside Europe.

Brussels: Religious Leaders Will Save The Planet

Cum tacent, clamant. (Cicero)

Brussels officials have now turned to Religious VIPs to mobilize our civilization for a sustainable future.

On Monday 5 May, twenty high level representatives - 19 men and one woman - from European Christian, Jewish and Muslim congregations met in Brussels, to discuss the sensitive issues of climate change and reconciliation between peoples, see http://euobserver.com/9/26083.

The meeting was cochaired by European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, Slovenian Prime Minister and current President of the European Council, Janez Jansa, and the President of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering.

The European President Jose Manuel Barroso said that Religious Leaders play an important role in implementing solutions to the challenge of climate change.

The Swedish Lutheran Archbishop, Anders Wejryd, told EUobserver he was disappointed there was only one woman among the Religious dignitaries - Pastor Letizia Tomassone - the Vice President of the federation of Evangelical Churches of Italy, who had also raised the point during the interreligious meeting.

The Swedish Archbishop emphasized: "We have neglected both nature and women, that was one of the messages we tried to get across at this meeting".

Some stupid critics were forwarded, which questioned the presence of Religious Leaders in strictly political fora in Brussels.

The EUobserver writes that the parliament's Party Working Group on the Separation of Religion and Politics in a letter to Hans-Gert Pöttering last year wrote: "It is unbecoming for any of the EU institutions to provide an exclusive platform to any particular grouping, including religions, in particular as the majority of European citizens are not religious or no longer practice their religion".

I shake my head to that comment, and as the European President Barroso said, it is thanks to the moral authority of our Religious leaders, their outreach, and their structure, they will make a valuable contribution and mobilize our societies for a sustainable future.

So it should be and so it is. Our Religious Leaders set the frame, and according to the foundation, which is found in the New Testament.

Then it is up to our political leaders to serve God, by implementing the best policy, while they respect the framework of our Religion to the glory of God.

"Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God", see 1 Corinthians 10:31.

Celebrate "International Day Of Prayer At The Pump"!

Quod bonum, felix faustumque sit! (Cicero)

President Bush proposes "International Day of Prayer".

At the 20th annual National Day of Prayer, at ceremonies held Thursday at the White House, President Bush said: "I think it makes sense to hope that one day there may be an International Day of Prayer", see http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewNation.asp?Page=/Nation/archive/200805/NAT20080505a.html.

Why not combine this suggestion of President Bush, with the Prayer movement of Rocky Twyman: "Pray at the Pump", see http://ohlundonline.blogspot.com/2008/04/pray-at-pump.html, and celebrate the "International Day of Prayer at the Pump"?

This would be a chance for people of the Christian faith around the world to stop at the same time to pause, and to praise the Lord God Almighty.

One Church Is Left In Northern Cyprus

Dum inter homines sumus, colamus humanitatem. (Seneca)

2.000 years after the Apostle Paul took his first missionary journey to Cyprus, to proclaim salvation through Jesus Christ, we find that more than 530 Churches and monasteries, have been pillaged, vandalized, or destroyed in Northern Cyprus.

According to the Christian Post, see http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080428/32154_The_Last_Church_Standing_in_North_Cyprus.htm, there is only one Church left in Northern Cyprus - all the others have been more or less destroyed since 1974.

Apparently 2.000 years of Christian and Byzantine history has been erased in very short time in Northern Cyprus.

I remember when I visited Ayia Napa 25 years ago, and talked to refugees from Famagusta, how they told me heartbreaking stories of how they had fled from their homes.

It is obvious that the Church often misunderstands the Gospel, and fails to spread the positive message about Christ and what He stands for in large regions of the world.

The riches of Christianity: liberty, freedom, and democracy, were never meant to be the exclusive privilege of the few, but were meant for "all nations", and this is why God allowed this to happen to Northern Cyprus, compare with Matthew 28:18 - 20.

There Is No Connection Between The Antichrist And The EU

Latet anguis in herba. (Vergil)

Some Pastors wrongfully think there is a connection, between the revealed Antichrist in the Old Testament book of Daniel, and the formation of the European Union.

We know from the book of Daniel - which was written before the Babylonians came and destroyed both Jerusalem and the Temple, and had the Jewish people deported - that from the Babylonian Empire shall come the "prince that shall come" - the Antichrist - according to the end time Scriptures, see Daniel 9:26, and Revelation 17:8.

Anyone who knows the beginning knows also the end.

Some Biblically incompetent persons, who want to revive the Babylonian Empire and strike deals with terrorists in the Middle East, say that the European Union is the evil beast, and they also say the same concerning the Catholic Church, and Rome, but compare with http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1208870534661&pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull.

First, neither Europe nor Rome is the evil beast, Babylon is, compare with Revelation 17:5.

Secondly, to say that people from Scotland, Sweden, and Finland, are revived Romans is plainly stupid, because most of Europe is composed by the "lost" tribes of Israel, see Matthew 10:6. As a matter of fact, it is more accurate to call the European Union: revived Israel.

Thirdly, the Bible tells us that the Antichrist will come from the revived Babylonian Empire, and not from Europe, see Daniel 9:26, and compare with Revelation 18:24.

Fourthly, the New Testament is in fact praising both Rome and the Latin language, see for example Romans 1:7, 16:20, and compare with Revelation 9:11.

Now, why are these lies about the Antichrist and his supposed connection to the European Union propagated?

Saint Paul was a tent maker, see Acts 18:3, and as he consequently was economically independent, he could preach the truth with great integrity.

But today's Churches are unfortunately tax exempted business corporations, which accordingly primarily seek profit and to please local governments, instead of serving the Lord, compare with Luke 22:31, and Acts 5:29.

Tax exemption corrupt many Churches, and many persons now falsely believe the lie that the Antichrist will rise from the European Union, but the Antichrist will in fact rise from the revived Babylonian Empire.

"No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house", see Mark 3:27.

This Is The Time To Watch!

Tarditas et procrastinatio odiosa est. (Cicero)

It is insane to divide Jerusalem and Israel.

There were four red blood Moon Eclipses in 1948 - at Passover, and Succoth, the feast of Tabernacles - when Israel was created.

The last time this occurred on a Biblical holiday, before that, was when the Jewish people was kicked out of Spain.

In 1967, when Jerusalem was liberated, there were also four blood Moon Eclipses. This is God's way to point a finger at us.

We should watch the Biblical holidays, as it is written: "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you", see 1 Thessalonians 5:1.

From Genesis 1:14, we know that Solar and Lunar Eclipses, are for signs and seasons, and compare with Matthew 24:29: "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken".

The next and only time in this century there will be four red blood Moon Eclipses on Biblical holidays, will be in the Sabbatical year 2014 - 2015.

The Lunar Eclipses will be on Passover - April 15, 2014, Feast of Tabernacles - October 8, 2014, Passover - April 4, 2015, and Feast of Tabernacles - September 28, 2015.

"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood", see Revelation 6:12, and compare with Acts 2:20.

There will be 4 Lunar Eclipses, and 2 Solar Eclipses between September 25 in 2014, and September 13 in 2015.

Remember the words of Christ: "O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?", see Matthew 16:3, and compare with Luke 21:29 - 31.

It is true that we non Jews - have bad or no knowledge of the Biblical calendar, since it was abandoned by the Church. And no wonder, because the different Church denominations can not even unite in celebrating Christmas and Easter on the same days...

In Revelation 3:3 it is written: "If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee".

However, in 1 Thessalonians 5:4 it is written: "But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief".

Thus, if we watch we will know perfectly well when Christ's Second Coming will be.

We already know how the sheep will be separated from the goats, see Matthew 25:31 - 46.

But Christ will also make difference between the sheep who watch and those who do not, between the wise virgins and the foolish virgins, see Matthew 25:1 - 13; between the faithful and wise servant and the evil servant, who says Christ will return later, see Matthew 24:42 - 51.

When Christ said: "ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh", see Matthew 25:13, He referred to the foolish virgins and evil servants, who did not watch, and therefore He commands us to watch.

Later this year, a 7 year period will start with a Solar Eclipse on July 31, Av 9, in the Biblical calendar. This day is of great significance, because it was on this day the ten spies brought a bad report and did not want the Holy Land, see Numbers 13:32, and it was also on this day Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple. It was on this day the Romans destroyed the Temple, the WW1 started, and Hitler proclaimed to kill the Jews. It was also on this day Gaza was evacuated.

So I will not be surprised if I hear about a foolish decision by the nations later this year to divide Jerusalem and Israel...

Concerning blood Moon Eclipses, and Christ's Second Coming in 2015, see the video interview with Pastor Mark Biltz, on the Prophecy In The News website, http://prophecyinthenews.com/, and the article in WorldNetDaily, http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=63076.

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh", see Luke 21:28.

Jesus Is The Messiah, Because He Was killed

Trahimur omnes laudis studio. (Cicero)

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life", see John 5:39 - 40.

The Old Testament prophecies concluded that Messiah would be killed, that He would be "cut off", see Daniel 9:26.

Psalm 22:12 - 18 accordingly prophecied:
"Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture", compare with John 19:23 - 24, 34, and Isaiah 53:1 - 12.

Concerning the Resurrection of Christ we read: "For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption", see Psalm 16:10, and compare with Luke 24:2 - 8.

Christ body will never decompose, and the Resurrection bears witness to this, as Jesus Christ is the living God, see Acts 1:10 - 11, and Romans 9:5.
