MISSING WORDS IN THE QURAN

Imagine if the following verses would be put into the Quran.  There would be no beheadings,no hands cut off, no sharia law,no genital mutilation, no wife beatings, no women inequality,no jihad, no suicide bombers, no suppression of free speech, no suppression of the freedom of the Press, no victim mentality, no hatred,  and no vengeance.

1. Matthew [Mattityahu in Hebrew] 22:39 

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (NIV)

2. Matthew 6:15 

But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.  (NIV)

3.  Matthew 5: 43-45  43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[b] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.  (NIV)

4. 1 John [Yochanan in Hebrew] 4:  7-9   7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son[a] into the world that we might live through him.  (NIV)

5.   1 Corinthians 13:  4-7  4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres  (NIV)

 6.  Colossians 3:10-12  

10and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. 11Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.  (NIV)

12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  (NIV)

7.  Matthew 3:9  

9Blessed are the peacemakers,
      for they will be called sons of God.
(NIV)

8.  Romans 12:19  

19Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a]says the Lord.  (NIV)

ACT FOR AMERICA: WARRIORS OF TRUTH, NOT OF THE SWORD

Truth will always overcome lies.  Light always overcomes darkness.  Love always overcomes hate.  The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob is on their side.  Read about their victories and join this force that is on God’s side.

                                     A Year of Accomplishment
                                            By Brigitte Gabriel

As we prepare for the holiday season, it’s hard to believe that 2008 has nearly come and gone already. Less than 14 months ago we launched ACT! for America, and we now have close to 50,000 members and nearly 230 local chapters.
I believe that, years from now, historians and political scientists studying the radical Islamist threat to America during the early 21stcentury will ask themselves this question: Why didn’t America follow in the path of Europe and Great Britain? Why didn’t America become like “Eurabia?”
And when they do, they will find the answer by looking at ACT! for America.They will look at this organization, founded in 2007, and when they chart its growth they will see how ACT! for America successfully pushed back against the Islamofascist threat.
As the ancient proverb says, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Well, in charting our growth for this year it’s undeniable that together we took a BIG step forward towards the completion of that very important journey.

  • In January we launched a petition and legislator-contact effort to help get “Rachel’s Law” passed in the New York state legislature. You may recall “Rachel’s Law” was introduced to protect New York authors from intimidation lawsuits filed against them in foreign jurisdictions. Thousands of you signed the petition and/or contacted New York legislators, and in late March the bill passed and was signed into law. The momentum from this victory led to the introduction of similar legislation, entitled “The Free Speech Protection Act,” in the U.S. Congress.
  • Also in January we posted, for the first time, a listing of our local chapters on our website. By late summer we more than doubled the number of active chapters listed on our website.
  • In April we commissioned a nationwide scientific poll, part of the “120 day plan,” to test voter opinion of numerous issues related to the threat of radical Islam. This random sample survey of 800 registered voters revealed that as many as 89% of American voters agree with our concerns about issues such as preventing the spread of shariah-compliant financing and de-funding terrorism. To our knowledge many of these questions have never been asked in such an opinion poll, and we have been able to use the results to better shape our legislative agenda and our educational outreach.
  • In the spring, with the help of the erstwhile leadership of former board member Jerry Gordon and our colleague Joseph Shahda, some key terrorist websites were taken offline by their American internet service providers. Later in the year this “dynamic duo,” working closely with the staff of Senator Joe Lieberman, helped bring about a new policy at Google/YouTube, which will no longer allow the posting of videos depicting terrorist acts perpetrated against Americans.
  • In March news stories reported that a charter school in Minnesota, the Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA), appeared to be engaging in impermissible promotion of Islam at its taxpayer-funded school. Through email alerts, the actions of our central Minnesota chapter, and other efforts aimed at the Minnesota Department of Education, we called on the Department to take action. It did, launching an investigation of the school. The investigation resulted in the Department of Education issuing two citations to the school for violations of law.
  • In May we launched our “PC (Politically Correct) Outrage of the Month” award, where we highlight a particularly noteworthy politically correct treatment of Islam.
  • In June we launched a nationwide petition calling on Congress to convene hearings to review extremist materials that have been found in American mosques, a petition we will present to the new Congress in early 2009.
  • In early August we learned that a Tennessee Tyson Foods plant had negotiated a labor contract with its employees that removed Labor Day as a paid holiday and replaced it with Eid al-Fitr, the Islamic holiday closing the month of Ramadan. In response to an email action alert we sent out, countless ACT! for America members called and emailed Tyson Foods to object to this action. Three days later Tyson Foods issued a press release reinstating Labor Day as one of its paid holidays and removing Eid al-Fitr as a required paid holiday for all employees.
  • In early September we unveiled our first “congressional scorecard.” This scorecard tracked nearly 50 votes on key issues in the U.S. House and Senate going back to 2003. With a few clicks of a mouse anyone was now able to find out how any U.S. House or Senate member voted on legislation and amendments relating to national security and Islamic terrorism.
  • Also in September we held our first “Citizens in Action” training conference in Chino Hills, California, with nearly 200 people in attendance. As one attendee put it: “This was truly THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT I have ever attended.”
  • In October we unveiled the ACT! for America 2008 Voter Guide. This voter guide effort was unprecedented in that we sought the positions of over 1,100 candidates for President, U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate on issues, such as Islamic shariah law and shariah-compliant financing, that have never been publicly debated in the halls of our national government.
  • My new book, They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It, released in early September and made the New York Times bestseller list in eight days. In the last two chapters ACT! for America is profiled as the centerpiece for an aggressive call to action to our nation.
  • Just this month we launched a project that takes direct aim at the infiltration of shariah-compliant finance into our society. On the heels of the recent financial crisis on Wall Street, shariah-compliant finance poses an immediate and extremely serious threat to our economic well-being and our freedoms. You will hear a great deal about this effort in the weeks and months to come.

As you can see, we’ve had a very busy and very productive first full year – and this list only hits the high points of our projects, activities and accomplishments.
So I want to thank you for all you did to help make all of this possible. When you forwarded one of our emails, or made a contribution, or contacted a chapter leader, or took action on one of our action alerts, you helped move us forward. You helped make these accomplishments possible. We are steadily growing, and our collective voice is getting stronger and harder for politicians to ignore.
In 2008 we won some victories, but this is only the beginning. Our journey has begun, but we’ve only taken the first step. Tomorrow, we’ll look at some of the challenges that lie ahead and how we can take the next steps toward securing the blessings of liberty and prosperity to the generations that will follow us.
Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

WALL STREET LUNACY: THE DESTRUCTION OF THE ECONOMY

It is hard to believe how deceived some on Wall Street are about Sharia Islamic Finance. On November 6, 2008 the U.S. Treasury Dept. held meetings on exploring the adoption of Sharia Banking in America.  Is it any wonder about the economic crisis in America when one considers the atrocious lack of wisdom of some leaders on Wall Street.

American Congress For Truth made the following statement:

While America struggles with the sub-prime and credit market crisis, Shariah Islamic Finance, also known as Shariah-Compliant Finance, is quickly infiltrating our financial markets – and bringing Islamic shariah law with it.  As one leading Islamic authority on Shariah-Compliant Finance has stated, it is “jihad with money.” In a new ACT! for America video, Joy Brighton, ACT! for America’s financial expert on Shariah- Compliant Finance, warns America of this chilling threat.

Beware this Saudi deal to help bail out Britain. It comes with a devastating IOU
Melanie Phillips UK Mail Online

With all eyes fixed upon the political excitements in the U.S, few have paid much attention to a trip made by the Prime Minister several thousand miles in the opposite direction.
A week ago Gordon Brown, accompanied by his new best friend the Business Secretary Lord Mandelson, went cap in hand to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states to ask them to help bail out the stricken economies of the West by pumping billions into the International Monetary Fund.

It is more than a little strange that the British Prime Minister should have apparently taken it upon himself to speak on behalf of the IMF. But the real concern is that asking for help from Saudi Arabia is not like tapping your friendly neighbourhood bank manager for a bigger overdraft.

No, this loan comes with a devastating IOU — nothing less than a big slice of control over Britain and the West by a regime at the heart of the attempt to bring about the Islamisation of the free world.

Granted, this country is facing a truly grave financial crisis. But does this mean we should remortgage the future of the West to those whose most radical elements are actively engaged in seeing it destroyed?

Alarming
I have long been concerned by Britain’s failure to acknowledge the true nature of the threat from global Islamism. This latest move is yet more alarming evidence of that process.

Saudi Arabia is at the root of the Islamic onslaught against the West. It is Saudi’s Wahhabi form of Islam which, along with its Shi’ite counterpart in Iran, aims to restore the dominance of Islam in the world and destroy rule by ‘unbelievers’.

It is Saudi money which has fuelled the enormous spread of Wahhabi mosques, preachers and educational institutions in this country, delivering the message of holy war and radicalising countless thousands of British Muslims.

And it is this Saudi ideology which was the inspiration for Al Qaeda.

True, Al Qaeda turned upon Saudi itself on account of its ties with the U.S. As a result, Saudi regards Al Qaeda as its mortal enemy, and as such co-operates with Britain and the U.S in combating it.

But sometimes, to rephrase the old adage, our enemy’s enemy is not actually our friend, but our enemy as well.

Saudi Wahhabism seeks to conquer the West through a pincer movement comprising violence on the one hand and cultural infiltration and takeover on the other.

At the very least, Saudi Arabia speaks with the most lethal of forked tongues, and we should actively be seeking to diminish its influence over our affairs.

But instead our Prime Minister is effectively offering it yet more opportunity to control us.

Mr Brown claimed he did not want such investment to be used to gain political influence. But Lord Mandelson blurted out the truth when he acknowledged that the Saudis and other Gulf states would expect a bigger role in global institutions in return.

Takeover: The Islamic world has already bought Manchester City football club.
This should be enough to chill the British marrow. Islamic influence is already spreading in Britain and the West, way beyond Muslim communities themselves.

The Islamic world is buying a financial stake in increasing numbers of Western institutions. Among its latest acquisitions are Manchester City Football Club, which was sold to the ruling family of Abu Dhabi, and Barclays Bank, which has secured an almost £6 billion capital injection from Abu Dhabi and Qatar.

Extremist Islamist ideas are also being spread through Islamic study centres attached to our universities. According to Professor Anthony Glees, eight universities — including Oxford and Cambridge — have accepted more than £233.5 million from Saudi and Muslim sources since 1995, spreading radicalism and helping create within Britain two separate identities and sets of allegiance.

‘Bribery’
Shockingly, Saudi blackmail has also forced Britain to suspend its own rule of law by ditching the bribery investigation into the arms deal between Saudi Arabia and BAE systems, in response to an explicit threat made by the Saudi authorities that, if the case continued, ‘British lives on British streets’ would be at risk.

Those aren’t my words, they are from Britain’s former ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles.

Thus, the Islamists are already pulling British strings through the supremely manipulative combination of the threat of violence and the lure of unbridled wealth.

Apparently oblivious to all this, however, Mr Brown has pledged to make London the global centre of Islamic banking. Accordingly, Britain’s major banks are eagerly embracing sharia finance, on the basis that it is a source of vast wealth.

What they fail to realise is that sharia is also a project for Islamising society, and wherever it is embraced it will use its position to do precisely that. The assumption is that sharia banking — which has at its heart the prohibition of interest — accords with ancient Islamic religious principles. Not so.

Sharia banking was devised by mid-20th century Islamist ideologues specifically to further their strategy for global Islamic rule by creating separate administrative systems.

Muslims are required to donate a proportion of their income to charity, including the money that goes through the sharia banking system.

Yet in many instances, the clerics deciding where this ‘charity’ money should go are the spiritual godfathers of terror, such as Sheik Yusuf Qaradawi, who supports suicide bombing in Iraq and Israel, and Sheik Muhammed Taqi Usmani, who has admitted he ran a madrassa that supported the Taliban, yet who sits on the sharia supervisory board of the Dow Jones Islamic Index Fund.

It’s no surprise, then, that many charitable donations end up being channelled straight into terrorist organisations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

But apart from being a global money-laundering exercise for terrorism, sharia banking is also a beachhead in the attempt by radical Islam to infiltrate British and Western society.

‘Seductive’

The key point is that sharia does not recognise the superior authority of the secular law of the land.

Sharia financial institutions may not be making this clear — they don’t want to frighten people away — but at some future time they may do so. This is how they will endeavour to spread sharia beyond their own territory.

There are already examples of sharia regulations over-riding commercial decisions. Citibank, for example, launched the Saudi American Bank (SAB) in Jeddah and Riyadh. In 1980, the Saudis abruptly seized the SAB, denied Citibank all future profits and ordered it to train Saudi staffers because the bank was judged insufficiently Muslim.

When trillions of pounds and dollars become locked into Islamic banking and Saudi and other Islamic institutions, who will be in a position to argue with the Islamists when they finally call in their IOUs?

But our politicians and financiers seem blind to this prospect — because they are mesmerised by the seductive prospect of so much wealth.

Moreover, the British establishment does not believe that what we are being subjected to is a religious war. That is why their response to the steady encroachment of Islamic radicalism in our society is so weak.

And that is why I fear the British Prime Minister is in danger of selling this country to those who are intent upon undermining our most treasured freedoms.

More than giving hostages to fortune, he is enabling fortune itself to hold Britain hostage.

Charities and
Terrorism

by Phil Leggiere

Thursday, 06 November 2008
http://www.hstoday.us/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5956&Itemid=128

New paper examines how Al Qaeda uses moderate Muslims to ‘microfinance” terror.

Terrorist networks and organizations have many “underground” means of financing themselves, from drug smuggling to cybercrime. As challenging as these clandestine methods are to globally eradicate, an equally vexing problem is how to shut-off jihadist funding siphoned off from so-called “legitimate” charities.

Addressing that problem, according to Tolga Koker Department of Economics and Carlos Yordan Department of Political Science Drew University, means addressing the question of why tens of thousands of Muslims who are not terrorists and often opposed themselves to terrorism nonetheless support the work of charities that support jihadist operations. Their new paper

, titled Microfinancing Terrorism: A Study in Al Qaeda Financing Strategy, published Tuesday by the Social Science Research Network, tries to do just that.

Although new banking and financial regulations may have made it difficult for terrorist groups to move funds around the world, the authors argue, these groups have be quite resourceful in finding ways to adapt to the new regulatory environment and to undermine it.

“For terrorist networks,” they write, “especially those informed by jihadist ideologies, one source of finance is Muslims’ religious donations to Islamic charities. Although Al Qaeda and its affiliates have employed other funding mechanisms, individual donations are a key source of financing because it is a steady flow of funds.

Charities, according to the report, have been a fundamental part of Al Qaeda’s financial Infrastructure, not only helping Al Qaeda raise funds, but allowing it to move funds across national boundaries and hide the transfers from financial regulators.

Though some charities, according to the authors knowingly and actively supported Al Qaeda’s efforts, “most were not aware that al Qaeda operatives working for these charities or that they were siphoning off thousands of dollars to fund terrorist activities and to build Al Qaeda’s global network, which supported jihadist struggles in Chechnya, the Balkans, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia.”

“Given that Al Qaeda and other groups fund most of their activities through donations, collected by Islamic charities, why would Muslims provide funds to these organizations,” the authors ask.

The answer, the authors conclude, is that “social pressure forces moderate Muslims to publicly support the work of charities that may provide assistance to Al Qaeda or groups inspired by a jihadist worldview.”

As they explain it, an individual will comply with social pressures and donate funds to a charity that may supports jihadi causes if he perceives it as critical to his reputation and public recognition as a “practicing” Muslim. Given the primacy of charitable donations in the culture and status system of Muslim communities the need to maintain reputation in this sphere is a powerful force, one that Al Qaeda has been able to tap.

“Microfinancing jihadi charities has a snowballing effect,” they write. “A Muslim who previously refrained from donating to Islamic charities is likely to find himself in a position to provide some funds to religious organizations if he constantly observes his fellow acquaintances’ donations. As a bigger portion of Muslims are yielding to social pressures to contribute extra monies to jihadi charities, al Qaeda and other groups informed by jihadi goals will secure more funds to run their violent operations.”

The reputational model of charitable behavior, the authors believe, has strong implications for policy and counter-terror strategy.

“The model implies,” they say, “that identifying first and then publicly exposing such charities may help pious Muslims, especially those with high expressive drive to sincerely voice their concern among their communities. Encouraging individual donors with high threshold to voice their opinion against violence may create a snowballing effect deterring others from contributing to possible jihadi charities.”

“More importantly,” they conclude, “finding ways to decrease reputational benefits is crucial in curbing the financial resources flowing terrorist networks. However, this is not an easy task. It needs the involvement of secular charities to provide several basic services that were considerably diminished with the neo-liberal polices since the 1980s in Muslim countries and elsewhere. Strictly regulated foreign aid to secular charities may help in this regard.”

The ultimate goal of this campaign of cultural outreach will be “making contribution to jihadi charities unpopular, and hence, changing the direction of social pressure from donating monies to such charities to avoiding such organization will have a paramount effect in the fight against terrorism. This is a long-term goal which is not feasible in the very short run since it asks for major revisions in world politics of which the jihadi charities are by-products.”

 

——————————————————————————————-AIG Offers First Takaful Homeowners Insurance Product for U.S.

December 2, 2008

http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2008/12/02/95930.htm

Risk Specialists Companies, Inc. (RSC), a subsidiary of AIG Commercial Insurance, is introducing what it says is a first in the U.S.: a homeowners insurance product that is compliant with key Islamic finance tenets and based on the concept of mutual insurance.

The Takaful Homeowners Policy is underwritten through RSC member company A.I. Risk Specialists Insurance, Inc., in conjunction with Lexington Insurance Co. and in association with AIG Takaful Enaya. Headquartered in Bahrain, AIG Takaful Enaya was established in 2006 to provide Takaful products, including accident and health, auto, energy, property and casualty products.

The Takaful home policy is the first installment in Lexington Takaful Solutions, a series of Shari’ah-compliant (Takaful) product offerings in the U.S.

According to Ernst & Young’s 2008 World Takaful Report, Takaful was estimated to be a $5.7 billion market globally with over 130 providers in 2006. The Takaful market is estimated to be in excess of $10 billion by 2010.

Takaful is similar to mutual insurance and cooperative risk sharing but there are key differences including a clear segregation of funds owned by participants and those owned by the insurance operations entity. Investments of funds are also restricted to avoid companies involved in entertainment, alcohol, pork and other elements prohibited by Islamic law.

Muslim countries only account for 5 percent of the global insurance market although they represent 25 percent of the world’s population, according to AIG, which launched its Takaful operation in October 2006.

The Takaful Homeowners Policy builds on LexElite, the homeowners policy from Lexington that is sold throughout the U.S. The Takaful Homeowners Policy is available in all 50 states.

According to Jim Crain, associate vice president and personal lines underwriting director for Risk Specialists, the coverage, terms, commissions and sales proceduers are the same for this new products as they are for LexElite.

“The introduction of Takaful products in the U.S. represents an important and emerging growth opportunity for AIG Commercial Insurance. We are pleased to offer socially responsible solutions to this segment of the domestic market,” said Matthew F. Power, president, Risk Specialists Companies, Inc.

AIG Takaful Enaya is licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain and its Shari’ah Supervisory Board is composed of Shari’ah scholars Sheikh Nizam Yaquby, Dr. Mohammed Ali Elgari and Dr. Muhammad Imran Usmani.

Risk Specialists Companies, Inc. is a U.S. surplus lines broker providing access to specialty casualty, property and personal lines insurance from Lexington and other AIG companies.

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS? / NO WAY!

There is a segment of our world population who would agree with all of their hearts with the title of my post.  There are others who are indifferent and could care less.  Many have accepted what others have told them, but have not checked the evidence for themselves to determine if it is true or false.

The Apostle Paul [Shaul in Hebrew] made a very bold statement about the resurrection
1Corinthians 15:14-15  And if Christ [Mashiach in Hebrew] has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.  More than that, we are then to be found false witnesses about God [HASHEM in Hebrew], for we have testified about God [HASHEM] that he raised Christ [Mashiach] from the dead.

The following are excellent links to help you examine the evidence:

JESUS THE TRUTH / ANY OTHER WAY IS A LIE!

None of the leaders of all the World Religions every claimed to be God in the flesh, nor did they every claim to be without sin.  Jesus was the only one who made these claims.  John 8:58  “I tell you the truth, Jesus[Yeshua in Hebrew] answered, “before Abraham was born, I am! (NIV)    In the book of Exodus, God identifies himself to Moses [Moshe in Hebrew] as  “I am”. To the  Jewish people,  Jesus [Yeshua] said:  “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin! If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?  He who belongs to God hears what God says.  The reason that you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”John  [Yochanan in Hebrew]  8:46-47 (NIV).

Men and Women try every which way to make them selves right. True followers of Jesus [Yeshua]  know that their attempts to make their selves right are worthless.  They know that only the blood of Jesus can make them right, and that only the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh in Hebrew] can transform them to walk in His ways.

All of the leaders of World Religions died.  It is only Jesus [Yeshua] who rose from the dead.  1 Peter [Kefa in Hebrew] 4:21b-22  …It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ [Yeshau  HaMashiach in Hebrew] , who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him. John [Yochanan] 11:25  Jesus[Yeshua] said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  HE who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”  Acts 17:22b  Paul[Shaul in Hebrew] was preaching the good news about Jesus [Yeshua] and the resurrection.  (NIV)

After Jesus [Yeshua] rose from the dead he told his disciples [talmidim in Hebrew] “This is  what I told you while I was still with you:  Everything must be fulfilled that was written about me in the Law [Torah in Hebrew] , the Prophets[Neviiem in Hebrew] and the Psalms.”[Tehillim in Hebrew]   Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures[Tanakh in Hebrew].  He told them, “This is what is written:  The Christ[Mashiach in Hebrew] will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance[t’ shuvah in Hebrew]  and forgiveness of sins will be preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem[Yerushalayim in Hebrew].  You are witnesses of these things.  I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”  John [Yochanan] 8:44-49  (NIV).  The promise of the Father was the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh].

If you are following any way except the way of Jesus [Yeshua] this verse in the Scriptures [Tanakh] is speaking to you.  Proverbs [Mishlei in Hebrew] 14:12  There is a way that seems right to a man [person], but in the end it leads to death  (NIV)

If you know you are not right with God, repent [t’shuvah in Hebrew].   Repent  means to turn from doing things your way and turning to God’s ways.  Trust in Jesus [Yeshua], not yourself.  Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh]   Attend a Church that believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  Get baptized.  Read your Bible daily and follow the teachings of Jesus [Yeshua]  Walk in His Love to all you come in contact with.

                                            Shalom in Jesus

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT ETERNITY?

All people are occupied with the daily processes of life on this planet, eating, sleeping, drinking, working, raising a family, daily chores and responsibilities, entertainment, etc.  We rarely give a thought to the reality of eternity.   We live our lives as if we have a guarantee of tomorrow and even the years to come.  There are those who think that when they die it is all there is, just death.  Others, push the thought of death far from their minds.  They may say, “I don’t want to be bothered with that thought”.

There are 8,760 hours in a period of a year.  According to The World Fact book, updated as of June 10, 2008, the average life span for a male on our planet is 64.18 years, and for a female 68.2 years  Total average hours of life on this planet is as follows:  56,221.6 for a male, and 59,743 hours for a female.  The World Fact book statistics can be found at this link: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/xx.html  All of us live our hours in both times of joy, and in times of sorrow.

In the Book of James ( In the Bible)  4:14 it says: “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes”. In the natural, our finite minds cannot comprehend eternity.  Ecclesiastes 3:11  (Speaking of God) says: “He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end”.

Eternity should be a major part of our thinking process, but why is it not?  2 Corinthians 4:4  “The god of this age [Satan, The Adversary, The devil] has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so they cannot see the light of the gospel [good news] of the glory of Christ (Yeshua, if your Jewish) , who is the image of God”.

We will all face death at some point in our life, there is no guarantee of our next breath.  Hebrews 9:27 :Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement”.   What should we be saying?, James 4:15-17 “Instead, you ought to say, If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.  As it is,  you boast and brag.  All such boasting is evil.  Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins”.  Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.  Romans 3:10   “There is no one righteous, not even one”.  How can we become righteous (right) with our Creator?  Romans 3:22  “This righteousness from God comes through faith [trust] in Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach, if your Jewish) to all who believe”.  Jesus (Yeshua) took the punishment of eternal  separation  from God,  which we all deserve,  because of our sinfulness.  How does a person come to salvation?  First we must be humble because it says in James 4:6  “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble”. John 14:6  Jesus (Yeshua) said:  “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”  We must acknowledge to our heavenly Father that we are a sinner, in critical need of salvation.  Tell Jesus that you want Him to be the Lord and Master of your life, and surrender your life to him.  Ask Him to change you and make you like Him.  Read the Bible and obey what it says to do.  The New Covenant (Brit Hadashah if your Jewish) is the greatest commentary on the Hebrew Covenant ( Old Testament [Tanach] if your Jewish)

Jesus spoke more about hell, then about heaven.  No matter what anybody else has told you, hell is a real place Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die , and the fire is not quenched”.   Jesus (Yeshua) said in Luke 12:4-5  “I tell you my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.  But I will show you whom you should fear:  Fear him who , after killing the body, has power to throw you into hell.  Yes I tell you, fear him.”  Jesus (Yeshua) said in Matthew 25:41 “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”  Not to come to Jesus  (Yeshua) for salvation is rebellion against the Heavenly Father’s  only way that he has graciously provided for us. Remember that our life here on this earth is like a “mist”,  in comparison to eternity.  It would be beyond foolishness to reject Jesus (Yeshua) and spend eternity (never ending) in the fires of hell.  The absolute worst conditions you can face here on this earth will be like heaven,  compared to the separation in hell from our Heavenly Father

Remember that our life here on this earth is like a “mist”,  in comparison to eternity.  It would bebeyond foolishness to reject Jesus (Yeshua) and spend eternity (never ending) in the fires of hell.  The absolute worst conditions you can face here on this earth will be like heaven,  compared to the separation in hell from our Heavenly Father.

For those who consider themselves atheists and are reading this, you need to ask yourself the following two questions.  1.  What if  I am wrong?  2.  Am I willing to allow my stubbornness and pride to casue me to make the gravest choice possible?.  Remember that you will choose your own destiny, and have no one to blame, except yourself.

My words echo the words of Paul ( Shaul, if your Jewish)  ” We are therefore Christ’s (Mashiach’s, if your Jewish) ambassadors , as though God were making his appeal through us.  We implore you on Christ’s (Mashiach’s) behalf:  Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”.  All the love and joy and peace that you can ever imagine are found in Jesus (Yeshua)   2 Corinthians 6:2  “I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation”.

If you know you are not right with God, repent [t’shuvah in Hebrew].   Repent  means to turn from doing things your way and turning to God’s ways.  Trust in Jesus [Yeshua], not yourself.  Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh]   Attend a Church that believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  Get baptized.  Read your Bible daily and follow the teachings of Jesus [Yeshua]  Walk in His Love to all you come in contact with.

Shalom in Jesus (Yeshua)

Some Doctors are beginning to wake up about the Truth of which foods are the best for your body.  These Doctors are in the minority, so you will not hear the fullness of this Truth in the Media.  I strongly urge you to watch this Video, and you will be shocked about how you have fallen for lies.

MODERATE MUSLIMS are more dangerous than the so called “terrorists” and “Radical Islam.  You have to understand the History of Muhammad, to  truly understand Islam. The Islamic State is PURE ISLAM.  I realize that this  is a shocking statement to many, and that is due in a large part to the Liberal Media.  The Liberal Media is a cancer on this world.  It is not Journalism at all.  It is saturated with comments, and viewpoints, and not the presentation of FACTS.

To understand The Islamic State, one has to study the history of Muhammad. His History is Atrocious.  If you do not study history, you will fall in line with the liberals who claim these people are not representing Islam.  The Veil needs to be lifted off of Islam.  The following link will open your eyes to The Truth.

WHAT IS A MODERATE MUSLIM?

We hear so much lately about Moderate Muslims and how they are so different from the “radicals”.  We hear how the “radicals”  have hijacked Islam.  We have heard that Islam is a Religion of Peace

What really is the definition of a Moderate Muslim?      FALSE MUSLIM

If Muhammad were alive today, he would kill everyone  who considers themselves a Moderate Muslim.  If you do not believe me, check out this book on Lifting The Veil:    http://www.al-rassooli.com/blog/

THE TOP 2 IDOLATRY BELIEF SYSTEMS: MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN

A friend pf mine wrote the following article.  It is HARD TRUTH for those whose hearing has not been turned off:

The Father vs. Idolatry.

The temple in Israel was where the presence of Abba reigned on this Earth. Because of the wickedness and waywardness of His children, He allowed His Enemies to destroy The Temple.

The only way to destroy Islam, is to destroy the Kaaba in Mecca. Every Muslim in The world should be so grateful that I am not a Pilot that has an F-16, because I would give my life to Destroy the Kaaba, and thereby, destroy Islam. They would then know that Allah has no power.

Abba is not into buildings, no matter what form they take. Mosques, Temples, Churches. He made HIS STATEMENT about BUILDINGS, when He allowed His Temple to be destroyed by the Roman Barbarians.

Outside of The Vatican the Kaaba in Mecca are the 2 Largest Idolatry Sites. Remember , it was the Vatican that created Islam. Both are WHORES.

EAST COST BLIZZARD 2015: DO YOU KNOW THE MESSAGE?

I want to state that I have compassion for the people who will encounter the brunt of this Storm.  There is a lesson that is to be learned from this Event, that few have thought about, or will even consider.  Nothing happens by Chance, their is a reason for everything.

There is a Far Greater Event that is just on the Horizon.  Because there is so much Apathy in America, most will fail to heed the Warning.  I hope you, the reader, are not in that Crowd.

A CRITICAL LESSON FOR THIS MLK DAY

http://www.wtsp.com/…/polk-swat-situation-haines-…/21832809/

On this Mlk Day we need to talk about Common Sense, The White Mother and Daughter were viciously gunned down by 4 Black Men. Do you see Whites in Florida, rioting, looting , and burning, in retaliation for these Murders? VIOLENCE SOLVES NOTHING.

MLK USED PEACEFUL TACTICS to change the Justice System in his day. The Despicable way Blacks were treated and looked upon was changed through Peace.

On this MLK DAY, will you please STOP DESECRATING THE MEMORY OF MLK, BY NOT RESPONDING AND ACTING FOOLISHLY, TO INJUSTICE.

Never forget that Wrong is Wrong irrespective of the skin color. KEEP MLK’S DREAM ALIVE.

ATTACK ON FRANCE: WHAT NATION IS NEXT?

I have studied Islam for over 17 years. the recent killings in France call for a critical understanding of what Islam is all about.  Just because the majority of Muslims are not Terrorists, does not negate the fact that Islam is the Most Dangerous Belief System in the World.  Yes there are peaceful verses in the Qu’ran; but one has to understand why those verses exist.

When Muhammad was in Mecca he was of a small group and had very little power..those verses from Mecca are the ‘nice verses’  in the Qu’ran,  when he was trying to win converts.  When he moved to Medina, this is where him and his coverts grew powerful, and thus the violent verses are put in the Qu’ran.  The nice things that were said about people groups in the beginning,  are changed to violence and opposition.  Very few people know this, and thus do not understand what Islam is all about.

It is said by Muslim Scholars that the Qu’ran was written in perfect Arabic and can only be read in and Recited in Arabic.  What do the facts reveal about this statement?  There are Egyptian,Hebrew, Greek,Syrian, Akkadian, Ethiopian, and Persian words and phrases in the Qu’ran.  It is thus not Perfect Arabic.  Here is an axiom to reflect on.    If you were lied to about this, what else in the Qu’ran were you lied to about?

The Middle East Scholar, Canon Sell pointed out,

The number of foreign words is very great.  They are borrowed from many languages In the Mutawakki by Jalalu’s-Din as-Syuti one hundred and seven words are enumerated and commented on.  This valuable book has been translated by W.Y. Bell, Yale University.  The Arabic text is also given.  It incidentally shows how many ideas have been borrowed.   Edward , Studies in Islam , ibid., p. 226

The majority of Muslims in the World are illiterate and recite the Qu’ran in Arabic, with no understanding of what it means.  They are told by others what it means.  This is an extremely Dangerous practice.  When people are told:  you are not smart enough to understand something, so just trust us,  to tell you what it means.

Sheik Salah al-Lahadun, Saudi Psychologist said the following:   “Women who drive cars suffer from ovarian problems and ‘rolled up pelvises’   giving rise to congenitally defective babies.”

Hajatosalem Kazem Sedighi , Iranian Scholar said:  “Many women who do not dress modestly, lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity, and spread adultery in the society, which  INCREASES EARTHQUAKES”

There is so many more facts that can be enumerated on,  but if you really want to know the Truth about Islam, you will do your own research, and thus arrive at the same Truth I have learned.

Free Speech is squashed in Islam,  because if they knew the facts, they would abandon it   A friend of mine told me that Islam is an Ingenious Political System that keeps people in Poverty,  while the leaders amass their wealth.  He said the ingenious part of it is that instead of hating those who have stolen their wealth, they are taught to hate others.

There is so many more facts that can be enumerated, but if you really want to know the Truth about Islam, you will do your own research, and thus arrive to the same Truth I have learned.

Do you see now,  how Dangerous and Detrimental the Belief system of Islam is?

Stay Strong France.  If you loose Free Speech, you have lost everything, and will arrive at a Dictatorship!  Never Forget that there is NO FREE SPEECH IN ISLAM.

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,400 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

CLEARING THE FOG ABOUT MICHAEL BROWN AND FERUSON

All of the riots and destruction that have ensued since the clearing of Dennis Wilson is caused a firestorm of emotional responses.  the following comments from a Black Man is a Masterpiece of Common Sense about  the Black Race and others who are not of that race:

REPOSTING BECAUSE I AGREE 100% (long but worth the time to read): This was posted in the Ferguson Scanner, and later deleted. My friend copied it before it disappeared, and emailed it to herself. My friend and I found this man’s message to be in keeping with our own thoughts about the events going on in Ferguson.
My Name is William G. Lillas….
I wanted to clear up a few black and white questions and answers. The things I state are facts. They are not downloaded from some media website, not propaganda, just observations from a 83 year old black man, born in America:
“I was told by my parents (yes, a married man and woman with my last name), that I was n*****. We lived in “N***** Town” in a small Texas town, no A/C, grass growing through the floor, no car, no TV. We washed our bodies with lye soap that my mother made, by hand. I thought I was a n*****, until I graduated high school, went to college, did an enlistment in the Army, and got a job. I am now retired, own my own home, have 6 children by ONE WOMAN, and we all have the same last name. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, a Master’s Degree in Sociology. My retirement, VA disability from combat in the Korean War (I only have one leg), and part-time pay in a local college, is about $125,000 a year. From dirt poor n*****, to old, black, proud American.
Yes, I am black, and I can say “n*****”, because I understand the true meaning of the word.
Let’s clear up a few things about the Michael Brown incident.
-Fact: It is not called “shoplifting or stealing”, it’s called “robbery”, which is a felony. Brown stole something and assaulted someone, that means ROBBERY. It’s on video, and it’s a fact. Not shoplifting, not theft, not “lifting” a few cigars, but ROBBERY!
-Michael Brown, like Trayvon, was portrayed by the media as a “little black boy”, cute little headphones, and his cap and gown photo, gunned down by a ruthless police assassin, executed by “whitey”. First, I have never seen a cop drag a person into their car’s driver door to arrest them. So, let us be clear, Michael Brown was a n*****; a sorry assed, criminal, hoodlum, n*****. Nobody wants to say that, but I will. He had a criminal record a mile long, was known for numerous assaults, robberies, including the one you saw with your own eyes, and still refuse to call it a robbery. He was, like so many others, living a life that he thought he was “entitled” to, just for being alive. Gangsta rap, weed, drinking, guns, and those stupid-assed low profile rims, makes him some kind of bad-ass n*****.
-I have fought communist Chinese and North Korean soldiers in the 1950’s with more honor than that n*****. Yep, I peeled potatoes and shot communists. That’s the only job a n***** soldier could get.
Rodney King? Black Riots!
Trayvon? Black Riots!
-Hurricane Katrina? Black Riots! Stealing TV’s, designer clothes, etc.
-O.J. Simpson kills white man and white woman, found NOT GUILTY? Did white folks riot? Nope!
-In fact, when is the last time white people rioted? Civil War, maybe? That’s because they are, relatively, civilized people, much like many black Americans. Protesting is one thing, hell, I’m all for it. Even if you are an ignorant idiot, you have a right to protest.
-Stop only showing the young black “cap and gown” photos of Michael. Charles Manson may have a few of those laying around, as well. Show the n***** “gangsta” photos of the “poor unarmed teenager” (grown man) pics that have been removed from his Facebook page, holding the loaded pistol, smoking weed, with a mouthful of money.
-Militarization? The stupid-assed media that publicizes this has no idea what “militarization” really is. Cops wear helmets and vests, and drive armored vehicle because unemployed n*****s thrown bricks at them, moron! You put on an “Adam 12” uniform and walk down the streets of Ferguson during the criminal riots. I can guarantee that you’ll jump into the first armored “military tank” that you see.
-You only “want the police” when you “need the police”, otherwise, you mock and fear what you do not understand about the police. And by the way, the police are trained to take your shit, but I wouldn’t fuck around with those Army National Guard, they aren’t as well disciplined “culturally” to take your shit like police do every day. They will ventilate your black asses with M-16s, with military precision and extreme prejudice.
-And finally, the way we protest and demand justice, is run down the streets breaking shit, looting stores, and acting like a bunch of untrained monkeys? Hell, after Rodney King, criminal n*****s were actually killing people, thinking they were entitled to be worse criminals than they already were. For those black criminals that do that, you are a disgrace to your race, inflamed by idiots like Al Sharpton, instead of listening to logic from proud black Americans, like Bill Cosby, Samuel Jackson, Colin Powell, Allen West, me, etc.
-You blame white people for your ignorance, criminal acts, unemployed laziness, etc.
-You blame white people for 89% of the prisons in America being full of blacks. They did nothing wrong, the racists white cops framed them all, right? No chance at school, no chance for college, military, employment?
BULL SHIT!
-More n*****s kill n*****s, than n*****s killing whites, whites killing n*****s, and whites killing whites….COMBINED. I find this astounding.
-It’s not white peoples’ faults, the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by a white man years ago. You can go to school, get a job, buy a house, and vote, JUST LIKE WHITE FOLKS!!!! You are not a slave, you are not discriminated against! Slavery is abolished, and nobody alive today, was alive when it was popular. Get over it! You are discriminated against because you are a criminal, sorry-assed n*****. Otherwise, black Americans are treated like everyone else.
-If you choose to create “baby daddy and baby mama”, and fake disabilities as an excuse for laziness to draw social security disability…… instead of husband, wife, family, job, mortgage, it’s YOUR FAULT, not white folks. And there are a lot of proud black Americans that will tell you the same, as I AM ONE OF THEM!!!
-Remember, the way you act on the camera, is remembered by everyone who sees it. They will never forget it. It shows them how you, as the black race, respond to situations that don’t particularly go the way you think they should. It will become a reference standard, something they expect from you when the next media report doesn’t go your way. Stop being stupid n*****s, and be a proud black American. My parents raised me well, but they were wrong about one thing, I am not a n*****.
I will not be around long. While my mind is still sharp, and my aim is still good, my body is eating away with cancer. It started in the prostate, and is spreading rapidly. After I die, I have asked my children to publish my writings, and include my name. Although I am not expecting any miracles, I can only hope that Americans will stop blaming color, start blaming criminals, and see people for what they really are. We have too many countries that want us dead. We should not be fighting each other.
“William G. Lillas”
