I didn’t mean to blow up, but this has been brewing in me for almost a year.
Occasionally, I visit JewsforJesus.org just to see what they are up to – where they are going, etc etc. Months ago, I did a double take when I saw on the front page of their site what looked to me as if they were condoning Kabbalah! I had to read it a few times to make sure that I was understanding the gist of the article.
You know how some websites have a person pop up and say “Hello, what can I help you with today?” Well, JFJ always has that. The first time I saw the piece on Kabbalah, I typed to the person and asked why they would be promoting or condoning this mystical practice.
He typed back an answer that made me want to say “yada yada yada” but instead I just went off the site. What he had said was that JFJ did not approve of Kabbalah, but they felt that because so many Jews are into that, they might be able to talk with some of them about Yeshua.
It reminded me of the “Seeker friendly” churches. “Come on in! It’s fine if you have short shorts with holes and a joint in your pocket – that’s really okay with us!! Just come in!” OY VEY!
The blow up
Yesterday, the article on JFJ front page was even worse about Kabbalah.
There are lots more articles on Kabbalah and Mysticism. But I’m getting nauseated putting the links in this article. So if you want to read them, go to Jews for Jesus and look up ‘Kabbalah.’
Brethren, maybe I’m right or maybe I’m wrong; but I don’t see our Lord Jesus giving His stamp of approval to people who attempt to reel in Jews by first affirming something that we know is inherently evil!
Isn’t that called lying?
Anyway, just wanted to get this off my chest. For those who are reading this – thanks for hearing me!
I wrote an article years ago about the Chicago Democratic Socialist Party of America, and how they supported Obama in his years as a State Senator in Illinois. Actually, I wrote numerous articles about Obama.
I think that this is the perfect time to bring back one of these pieces. It will help to refresh the memories of those who forget so easily.
“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” ~Sir Winston Churchill
The word “legacy” usually brings with it a positive connotation. We could say “President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy was certainly bringing an end to slavery in America.” For this reason, many consider Lincoln to be our greatest president.
In the case of our outgoing president, the term ‘legacy’ means something entirely different. It is not positive – unless of course you are a Jihadist. Islamist historians will revere Obama’s memory as a champion of Sharia Law and a fellow enemy of Israel.
Of course, many of us realize that Obama is merely a puppet for the globalists. George Soros groomed BHO and the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America propped him up during his bid for State Senator in Illinois. They held dinners for him and helped him to launch his career. We know that his friends helped him along the way – Bill Ayers, the unrepentant domestic terrorist played a huge part in Obama’s climb to the top.
2004 Keynote Speaker at the DNC
Obama was introduced to America on that fateful night in 2004. He quickly became the darling of the left. I watched him that night, and I knew that being chosen to deliver that speech was calculated and well planned.
I am taking the rest of this piece from an article I wrote about BHO almost a year ago. Some comments at the end will be new.
Fundamental Transformation of America
Obama said in 2008 that he planned to “Fundamentally Transform America.” He has remained true to that promise. Those of us who love and cherish our country did not see a need for transformation. I do not believe that anyone, other than the radical left, knew that this president meant a complete transformation from top to bottom and a change in foreign policy.
He began his destruction of our country with the infamous “Apology Tour.” Of course he went to those who have a history of despising the U.S. — Arabic countries. His talk of Muslims, and how much they have contributed to society, was really our first clue as to Mr. Obama’s plans. He spoke outright lies about America, and that she was never a Christian country. He downplayed our exceptionalism as if it was an evil thing – something of which to be ashamed.
Enemy of the State
Obama has placed the MOST radical Islamists in positions all over our government. I recently wrote a piece on Mohamed Elibiary, whom Obama put in a key position in our DHS. Elibiary was relieved of his duties there last September. There have been rumors of him leaking sensitive information, which is extremely troubling since this man is a member and staunch supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama has had multiple meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House. The last meeting he arranged, the press was banned from attending. How did we allow this to happen?? This is America — not Russia!
Obama Orchestrated the “Arab Spring”
Many people, especially on the left, honestly thought that the uprising in Egypt and other Middle East countries were spontaneous events. They were not. Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, planned to topple all secular governments. George Soros funded the protests. They wanted their friends, the Muslim Brotherhood to come into power. When BHO told Hosni Mubarak that it was “time to go” Mohamed Morsi was waiting in the wings to take power. Even though Morsi (head of the Muslim Brotherhood then) said that he had no intention of running in the new election after Mubarak left, he did run and he won. But a year later Morsi was ousted by the Military. He sits in a jail cell to this day. El-Sisi, the head of the Military became president. El-Sisi decreed that the Muslim Brotherhood would be outlawed in Egypt. There was a lawsuit against BHO and Clinton in Egypt for aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood. Meanwhile, Obama continued his relationship with this terrorist organization.
No Plan to Destroy ISIS
The rest of the country calls this Islamic killing machine “ISIS” but Obama and his minions call them ISIL. This is because of his hatred of Israel. The “L” stands for the Levant. It is a territory that includes Israel, which the terrorists plan to take, as they spread like cockroaches across the Middle East.
Obama has made it clear that there will be NO boots on the ground. I have read from credible sources that our so-called airstrikes against ISIS have been minimal, and when they do happen, they are hitting empty buildings.
Can you imagine if ISIS had been around during the Ronald Reagan administration? They would not have lasted a week.
“When you hear President Barack Obama speak about deadly attacks, he never says “Islamic terrorist attacks.”
However, he repeats the abbreviation “ISIL” often… You probably have asked yourself, why does he call the Islamic State that, instead of “ISIS”? It sounds strange and forced… but as America’s most popular conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh notes, there is a sinister reason why Obama uses the phrase: It’s an to insult Israel!
I think most people are wondering, “What is this ISIL? Why does he keep calling it ISIL? It’s ISIS.” They’re not saying, “Well, that’s because ISIS he can pin to Bush, but ISIL he can’t, so he doesn’t want to –” I just don’t think that anybody in the Regime even thinks that people are going to think in these terms. I think there’s a totally different reason for this. And I don’t know how to say it. (laughing) (interruption) Well, it does. Snerdley is asking me, “Doesn’t it have something to do with Israel?” Yes, because the Levant is the entire region.
ISIS stands for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, or Iraq and Syria, that’s the I-S, and ISIL, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant includes more than Iraq and Syria. It would include Israel, which, to these people, Israel is a fraud. Israel doesn’t deserve to be there. That’s all Palestine and that’s what I think is behind the pronunciation, this insistence that it be called ISIL. He’s the only one that does it. I mean, others in the Regime do. Even the media calls it ISIS, but he sticks with ISIL.
I think he’s got a different audience for the term. I don’t think he’s talking to the American people. I think he’s talking to Iran. We just heard Walid Phares say that Obama’s linkage here is not to oppose ISIL because Iran supports ISIL, and it’s all to do with the sectarian violence between the Sunnis and the Shi’ites and the fact that Iran capitalizes on the sectarian violence, does not want it solved because they hope to end up controlling the entire Levant — uh, sorry — region. Didn’t mean to say that.” –source
Egypt and Israel Say BHO is Playing a ‘Double game’ in the War on Terror
A story broke about BHO’s meeting with Muslims regarding the War on Terror. Egypt and Israel are claiming that Obama is playing a “Double Game” in this war.
“A recent White House meeting between President Barack Obama and Muslim leaders sent shockwaves through the Middle East, specifically in Israel and Egypt. The cause of the uproar: the group included leaders with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
‘We just don’t understand because we know the history of the Muslim Brothers,’ former Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Zvi Mazel told CBN News. We know exactly who they are. So how come the United States, the administration — in that case the president himself and the State Department — receive delegation[s] of the Muslim Brothers?’”–source
Importing Muslims to the U.S.
“Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period… Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there… House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul called the new policy ‘a federally sanctioned welcome party to potential terrorists.’”– source
Intense hatred of Israel and PM Netanyahu
There has never been a president of the U.S. who has been as hateful, disrespectful and shown disdain for Israel and her leader like this president. He doesn’t even attempt to hide this hatred. My words here pale in comparison to God’s Holy Word:
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)
The Infamous Arms Deal with Iran Posing Danger to Israel
Although PM Netanyahu is well aware of the disdain which BHO holds for Israel, he also knows that the American people are pro Israel and disagree with Obama concerning this reckless treaty:
We mustn’t forget the role that Obama played in getting the definition of marriage changed by the SCOTUS and gay marriage made legal across the land. In his first term, Obama said that he believed in the traditional definition of marriage – that being between one man and one woman. We did not know that he was saving his radical ideas for his second term.
Obama Watches as the Left Threaten to Tear America Apart over 2016 Election Results
With Donald Trump’s victory, which left the Dems in disbelief; George Soros and Michael Moore and other Leftists are threatening – no, promising that they will bring every major city in America to a stand still on December 19th and on Inauguration Day. Since Trump’s victory, Soros has been funding protests and riots all over America.
Do we hear Barack Obama condemning this? Do we hear a clear message from the White House that this is not the way to express disappointment? NO. Pure silence. And this silence from Obama speaks LOUDLY.
Pray for America
Brethren, we should be praying for our country and for the safety of Trump and Pence and their families. We also should be on our knees, praying for a great awakening in America – that millions would be saved. We should be praying for revival in the church and praying against the apostate churches; mainline denominations, the Emergent church, the Protestant pastors who want to return to Rome. Pray that God will bring His truth to many who have never known it.
Pray that Barack Hussein Obama will leave our White House peacefully, and that God will thwart any attempts by him to meddle in our government again. source
Today, I found an excellent article on Socialism and what is does to a nation:
Sorry if You’re Offended, But Socialism Leads to Misery and Destitution
On the same day that Venezuela’s “democratically” elected socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, whose once-wealthy nation now has citizens foraging for food, announced he was lopping five zeros off the country’s currency to create a “stable financial and monetary system,” Meghan McCain of “The View” was the target of internet-wide condemnation for having stated some obvious truths about collectivism.
During the same week we learned that the democratic socialist president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, is accused of massacring hundreds of protesters whose economic futures have been decimated by his economic policies, Soledad O’Brien and writers at outlets ranging from GQ, to BuzzFeed, to the Daily Beast were telling McCain to cool her jets.
In truth, McCain was being far too calm. After all, socialism is the leading man-made cause of death and misery in human existence. Whether implemented by a mob or a single strongman, collectivism is a poverty generator, an attack on human dignity, and a destroyer of individual rights.
It’s true that not all socialism ends in the tyranny of Leninism or Stalinism or Maoism or Castroism or Ba’athism or Chavezism or the Khmer Rouge—only most of it does. And no, New York primary winner Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t intend to set up gulags in Alaska. Most so-called democratic socialists—the qualifier affixed to denote that they live in a democratic system and have no choice but to ask for votes—aren’t consciously or explicitly endorsing violence or tyranny.
But when they adopt the term “socialism” and the ideas associated with it, they deserve to be treated with the kind of contempt and derision that all those adopting authoritarian philosophies deserve.
But look: Norway!
Socialism is perhaps the only ideology that Americans are asked to judge solely based on its piddling “successes.” Don’t you dare mention Albania or Algeria or Angola or Burma or Congo or Cuba or Ethiopia or Laos or Somalia or Vietnam or Yemen or, well, any other of the dozens of other inconvenient places socialism has been tried. Not when there are a handful of Scandinavian countries operating generous welfare state programs propped up by underlying vibrant capitalism and natural resources.
Of course, socialism exists on a spectrum, and even if we accept that the Nordic social program experiments are the most benign iteration of collectivism, they are certainly not the only version. Pretending otherwise would be like saying, “The police state of Singapore is more successful than Denmark. Let’s give it a spin.”
It turns out, though, that the “Denmark is awesome!” talking point is only the second-most preposterous one used by socialists. It goes something like this: If you’re a fan of “roads, schools, libraries, and such,” although you may not even be aware of it, you are also a supporter of socialism.
This might come as a surprise to some, but every penny of the $21,206 spent in Ocasio-Cortez’s district each year on each student, rich or poor, is provided with the profits derived from capitalism. There is no welfare system, no library that subsists on your good intentions. Having the state take over the entire health care system could rightly be called a socialistic endeavor, but pooling local tax dollars to put books in a building is called local government.
It should also be noted that today’s socialists get their yucks by pretending collectivist policies only lead to innocuous outcomes like local libraries. But for many years they were also praising the dictators of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the nation’s most successful socialist, isn’t merely impressed with the goings-on in Denmark. Not very long ago, he lauded Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela as an embodiment of the “American dream,” even more so than the United States.
Socialists like to blame every inequity, the actions of every greedy criminal, every downturn, and every social ill on the injustice of capitalism. But none of them admit that capitalism has been the most effective way to eliminate poverty in history.
Today, in former socialist states like India, there have been big reductions in poverty thanks to increased capitalism. In China, where communism sadly still deprives more than a billion people of their basic rights, hundreds of millions benefit from a system that is slowly shedding socialism. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the extreme poverty rate in the world has been cut in half. And it didn’t happen because Southeast Asians were raising the minimum wage.
In the United States, only 5 percent of people are even aware that poverty has fallen in the world, according to the Gapminder Foundation, which is almost certainly in part due to the left’s obsession with “inequality” and normalization of “socialism.”
Nearly half of American millennials would rather live in a socialist society than in a capitalist one, according to a YouGov poll. That said, only 71 percent of those asked were able to properly identify either. We can now see the manifestation of this ignorance in our elections and “The View” co-host Joy Behar.
But if all you really champion are some higher taxes and more generous social welfare, stop associating yourself with a philosophy that usually brings destitution and death. Call it something else. If not, McCain has every right to associate you with the ideology you embrace. source
So, if you have friends and family who are duped by the Democratic/Socialists – please show them this article. And pray hard that they begin to understand that Democrat=Socialist. There truly is no difference any longer.
In 1999, my mother got terribly ill. She would tell me that there was something very wrong with her nose and sinuses. Her doctor had her on some kind of sedative since the passing of my father in 1997.
Her doctor would tell me that she had “hysterical female” syndrome. Now, I’m certainly no feminist, but I could not help but feel that her doctor was blowing off my mother’s complaints and blaming everything on losing my dad.
Mom was a very smart and rather independent lady. She was the best bridge player in her building – the ladies fought over her – wanting her to be on their team. She read the news front to back and was always up on current events.
Trips to the ER
Mom was so convinced that something was wrong, she would call 911 and go by ambulance to the emergency room several times. The doctors there never called for any CT Scans or MRI’s to rule out something physical causing her complaints.
But then my mom began to slur her words and that was alarming. It was so bad that I could not understand anything she was saying. She thought that she was speaking to me clearly, and when I didn’t understand her, she would get mad.
The Last Doctor’s Visit
I went with my mother to her doctor when none of us could understand what she was trying to say to us. When we were back in his exam room, he heard my mom attempting to speak. He took me aside and said that he was sure that she was taking too many sedatives; and also that “hysterical female” diagnosis came out of his mouth.
I prayed in my head for the Lord to keep me from slapping him! I was very upset. I demanded that he put my mother in the hospital and have them do appropriate testing to rule out a physical problem.
He told me that he would NOT put my mother in the hospital and that he was 100% sure that it was psychology and not physical. At that point I could not speak to him any longer. I felt a rage come up inside of me.
I took my mom home and stayed with her until she was ready to sleep.
The next day I received a call from a neurologist at the local hospital. My mother had called 911 again and was in the ER. The doctor said that a CT-Scan showed that my mom had a large and inoperable tumor in her brain. He told me that most likely it had been growing for months.
I met my sisters and brother at the hospital. The doctor was sure that the tumor was malignant. He said that it was embedded in the area of the brain which control speech and memory.
A biopsy was done and they told us that the cancer was the most aggressive type known.
Chemo and Radiation?
After being told by the oncologist that chemotherapy and radiation might only give my mother 4-6 weeks to live, we had a family meeting. My brother and I said that we should bring mom home and keep her comfortable with her family around her.
My two sisters wanted chemo and radiation, and that is how they treated the cancer. A few days into the chemotherapy, my mom began aggressive behavior toward the nurses. She would trip them and hit them. Her oncologist told us that there were heavy amounts of steroids mixed in with the chemo, and thought that it was causing the erratic behavior.
One day when I came to visit my mom, I was shocked to see that she had been tied down to her bed. I went to the nurses station and told them that it was too dangerous to restrain my mother like that. I asked them if it was even legal. What about the possibility of a fire? The head nurse immediately untied my mom.
The Private Nurse Hand Picked by Our Lord Himself
One of my sisters hired a private nurse to stay with mom for most of the day. I came to see mom every day after work. I walked into her room and saw the private nurse. She introduced herself and I did the same. Then a remarkable thing happened. This nurse (I think that she was Jamaican) looked into my eyes and said to me “You know the Lord Jesus!”
The reason I said that this was remarkable, was that my mother’s last name was Rosenberg, and most people would know that was Jewish. But this beautiful nurse knew that I was born again! She saw Jesus when she looked in my eyes.
Through tears I told her that I indeed knew Jesus and that He was my Savior. We hugged. She was crying too.
Singing Hymns Day after Day
Every day I would come for my visit. The nurse would tell me that she had sung hymns to my mom all day long! She said that my mother would smile and that her favorite was Amazing Grace. I knew that God Himself had chosen this nurse for my mother.
The irony to this story is that the sister who hired this private nurse was and is an atheist! When I pondered in my heart that this was indeed a miracle from God, I kept it to myself. I didn’t want my sister to fire this nurse. I treasured the thought that this sister in Christ was with my mother while I worked, and that she sang hymns and talked to mom about Jesus. What a Savior!
When my mom was close to death, the private nurse was also a hospice nurse and remained with her. I was there, holding my mom’s hand when she took her last breath.
The nurse hugged me and said “Don’t worry about her. She is with our Lord.”
I had led my father to the Throne of Grace in 1997 on the very night of his death. I had been writing to my father about Jesus and how He truly was the Messiah. I keep letters from my dad in my Bible. He began to watch Billy Graham crusades whenever they were on TV. Mom and dad lived in Melbourne, FL for a few years.
Mom was convinced that dad was “meshuganah” (crazy in Yiddish) but I smiled whenever she complained to me about him. She wanted nothing to do with Jesus.
I pray that my mom truly understood the Gospel because of the nurse whom our Lord had chosen for her. And I pray that she trusted in the Lord Jesus for her Salvation. I pray that she is in heaven with my father waiting for me.
It WAS Amazing Grace that God in His compassion and mercy had sent this beautiful daughter of His to care for my mom in her last days – physically and spiritually!
There are a few Congressmen who should be excused from their offices. This is utterly ridiculous! I love our First Amendment, but at times it allows speech which should NEVER come out from the mouths of elected officials in Congress.
Someone needs to speak up about this in Congress!
Maxine Waters needs to be tried for Treason – pure and simple.
Bombshell: Traitor Maxine Waters Just Publicly Sided with Iran
Rep. Maxine Waters has gone from treating Trump supporters like the enemy to taking a real enemy’s side.
The California Democrat has previously been best known for incessantly chanting “impeachment” when it comes to President Donald Trump and urging her supporters to confront Trump’s officials wherever possible.
But in a Twitter post Sunday night, she openly took the side of the Islamic Republic of Iran in its dispute with the United States, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas didn’t let her get away with it.
Waters was commenting on last week’s downing of an American military drone by Iranian forces. Iran maintains the drone was in its airspace when it was shot down.
American military officials and the Trump administration say the drone was in international airspace.
Naturally, we know who Waters is going to believe.
”Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran,” she wrote. “Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence.”
It’s worth noting that Waters didn’t say how or why she believes Tehran’s version of the story.
It’s a good chance she doesn’t know herself — beyond her Pavlovian distaste for anything to do with the current commander in chief.
The fact that such a woman actually chairs the House Financial Services Committee is a sad indication of just how low the Democratic Party has dragged itself during the Trump years.
And Crenshaw, one of the most outspoken members of the Republican freshman class, didn’t take long to put Waters down even further.
“This is a shocking quote from a House Committee Chairwoman,” Crenshaw wrote in a Sunday evening tweet.
Now, as most people know by now, Crenshaw is not a normal politician in 21st century America.
A former Navy SEAL, he lost an eye in combat in Afghanistan. It’s a good bet he has a deeper appreciation for the military and its relations with the government than just about anyone on Capitol Hill — Republican or Democrat.
And he certainly has a much deeper appreciation for the military than a loudmouthed liberal like Waters.
There were plenty of responses to Crenshaw’s post — many, many of them from Twitter users taking Waters’ side, and questioning why Crenshaw was so uncritically accepting of the official version of events.
That may well be a valid question, but for liberals like Waters that isn’t the point.
The point for the anti-Trump left is that the enemy of their enemy is their friend.
And if Iran is a friend, Iran is to be trusted, no matter how hopelessly insane that sounds.
That’s why Waters can switch from bashing Trump supporters to supporting the murderous mullahs of Iran without even pausing to wipe the spittle from her lips.
It’s why the host of Trump haters on social media can feel free to respond to a genuine war hero with two Bronze Stars (one with “valor”), a Purple Heart and a Navy Commendation Medal with Valor as though he’s an ignoramus about matters of war and peace in the United States.
God knows there’s always room for skepticism in the United States when it comes to the government.
Decades of liberal lies going back to the New Deal and the eight years of the Obama administration have left their mark.
So questioning is one thing.
But leaping, as Waters did, to the side of the mullahs is a different matter entirely.
Without reference to any knowledge of her own, Waters’ tweet is simply repeating, Quisling-like, the words of the leaders of a country that has been antagonizing the U.S. to some degree for the past 40 years.
Democrats have been accusing Trump of “treason” since before he even took the oath of office.
Waters’ tweet makes her look much more guilty of being a traitor than Trump ever has — and probably ever will.
Crenshaw called Waters’ post “shocking.” Unfortunately, considering Waters’ past, “shocking” it isn’t.
