    Jesus’ donkey in Israeli jail

    On Sunday, March 28 2010, a Christian Palestinian rode on a donkey, and another one rode on a horse during the of Palm Sunday. Hundreds of Christian celebrators moved from the Nativity Church and walked in the city until they arrived at the Bilal bin Rabah Mosque, which the Israeli occupation stole. The Israelis also confiscated its surrounding area from the Holy City of Bethlehem and added it to the property of the military and the occupied city of Jerusalem. They built very high surrounding walls and military watchtower, which all prevent the free entry and exit from Bethlehem and the Aida refugee camp. They separated and paralyzed the social life of the Christians who live in Bethlehem the Christians who live outside, and later also the mosque which confiscated.

    Abbas Zaki, who took part in the Christian celebration of Palm Sunday said: “When we arrived at the Bilal bin Rabah Mosque, the Israeli metal gate in the middle of the Street in Bethlehem was open, we all passed through the gate. We walked about 700 meters until we reach the Israeli checkpoint 300.

    There was a military personnel ready to shoot and to clash with the Christians celebrators. We decided to return, the donkey and the horse were among us. Upon arrival at the gate of the Bilal bin Rabah mosque we went out while the Israeli occupation soldiers were watching us through cameras. They closed the gate trying to stop me and some others from entering the city of Bethlehem. We found ourselves between high walls and closed gates, and here the Israeli soldiers arrested the donkey and the horse, myself and 10 other Christian and foreigners”.

    “They laid the donkey and the horse down by use of force, and then they cuffed their legs and put them on a military vehicle. The scene was disgusting; especially when they tied up the four legs of these animals and transferred them to jail on charges of having entered a military zone”.

    According to the Christian Bible, the Prophet Jesus, Peace and Mercy be upon him, rode on a donkey from the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem when he went to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. This was on a Sunday three days before his crucifixion.

    Jesus Christ: Real or mythical?

    I was scanning the Wikipedia entry for Quetzalcoatl and came across these most interesting paragraphs:

    The exact significance and attributes of Quetzalcoatl varied somewhat between civilizations and through history. Quetzalcoatl is one of the four sons of Ometecuhtli and Omecihuatl, he was often considered the god of the morning star, and his twin brother Xolotl was the evening star (Venus). As the morning star he was known by the title Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, meaning "lord of the star of the dawn." He was known as the inventor of books and the calendar, the giver of maize (corn) to mankind, and sometimes as a symbol of death and resurrection. Quetzalcoatl was also the patron of the priests and the title of the twin Aztec high priests.

    Most Mesoamerican beliefs included cycles of suns. Usually, our current time was considered the fifth sun, the previous four having been destroyed by flood, fire and the like. Quetzalcoatl allegedly went to Mictlan, the underworld, and created fifth-world mankind from the bones of the previous races (with the help of Chihuacoatl), using his own blood, from a wound in his penis, to imbue the bones with new life.

    His birth, along with his twin Xolotl, was unusual; it was a virgin birth, to the goddess Coatlicue.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Christianity was stitched together from the myths of much older religions.
    It also seems likely that some prehistoric civilization existed that spread its culture all over the world. Apart from religious similarities, how else to account for similarities in architecture (e.g. pyramids on two continents with a vast geographical separation)?

    Re: Jesus Christ: Real or mythical?

    I believe that Yahshua Christ not only lived but still lives and is at the right hand of the Father. Any supposed similarities between him and any pagan god or legend is either coincidental or manufactured by jew controlled "historians"

    Turn the Other Cheek

    Turn the Other Cheek

    Almost without exception the clergy, of all denominations, preach pacifism, turn the other cheek. They would have you believe this is what God and the Bible want to be taught. Some will even admit that the Jews have evil ways, are parasites, usurers, even Anti-Christian; but if you are a good Christian you will tolerate their evil. You will not rise against them or even criticize them in any way, for this would displease God. After all they are God's chosen people and Christ was a Jew. These are the two most fantastic lies ever perpetrated on a gullible world. Nowhere in the Bible can you find such ridiculous statements. COULD IT BE THAT THE CLERGY IS USING THE JEWISH TALMUD?

    How do the Jews accomplish this mass brainwashing? Remember, back in the twenties and thirties, the most horrible thing on God's earth, according to our news media, was a Russian Communist . Then one day Hitler attacked Russia. Within twenty-four hours, Russia became "the good guys." Quite a genetic change for an entire nation, overnight. Remember, headlines screaming that Hitler exterminated six million Jews; many still believe that fallacy. Hitler received a great deal of credit here that, unfortunately, he did not deserve. With their complete control of the news media, educators and the clergy, lies become accepted as truth through constant repetition.

    This same system is teaching us today that we should turn the other cheek and tolerate the evil practices of the Jews and, even worse, the evil of our brothers and sisters who have been contaminated by these offspring of Satan. These lies are not only advantageous for the Jews, they are absolutely necessary, to enable them to continue their parasitic existence, feeding on us, the host. Are we going to continue swallowing these lies, or will we study the Bible and learn the truth?

    Did Christ preach, or practice, turn the other cheek? Did He walk into the temple and tell the Jew money changers, "Now listen, fellows, this practice of usury is not very nice, please do not do it anymore"? As I recall, He said nothing of the kind. He beat them soundly with a whip and drove them out of the temple. Is this turning the other cheek? Is this pacifism? Certainly not. It is your duty as a Christian to denounce evil and do something about it. If you sit back and say nothing, you are condoning evil. Let the proselytes do that, for they have become twice the child of Hell that the Jews are. (Matt. 23: 15.)

    In Matt. 23. 27-28, Christ tells the Jews, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. For ye are like whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hyprocrisy and iniquity. " This does not sound like condoning evil to me.

    Does God turn the other cheek when His own children turn to worshipping false gods and race mixing? First, let us check His Law on the subject. Deut. 7: 1-6: "When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land where thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girga****es, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations, greater and mightier than thou. And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee, thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them. Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods; so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them: ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut clown their idols, and burn their carved images with fire. For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people who are upon the face of the earth. "

    Now we turn to I Kings, the 18th chapter. Space does not allow quoting the entire chapter, but please read it. I will merely give you the highlights. God caused a severe famine in Samaria because the people had turned to worshipping Baal (Satan). Jezebel slew the prophets of the Lord and had 450 Baal priests leading the people. Elijah says they have forsaken the commandments of the Lord and have become followers of Baal. The people were pretty well confused, just as they are today. Elijah states, "How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow Him: but if Baal then follow him, "

    Elijah continues, "Let's run a test and prove to ourselves who is the real God. Get two bullocks, one for you, one for us. Build are altar of stones, cover it with wood, cut the bullock in pieces, lay it on the wood, and put no fire under it. I will do the same. Ye call on the name of your god (Baal) and I will call on the name of the Lord, and the God who answers by fire, let Him be God." So the worshippers of Baal prepared their bullock and called upon Baal, from morning till noon, to set it on fire, but they received no answer. Then Elijah mocked them, saying, "Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is on a journey, perhaps he sleepeth, and must be awakened. " They cried louder and screamed louder and cut themselves, as was their custom, until the blood gushed out, but no answer from Baal. By evening they had given up.

    Elijah built a trench around his offering and poured four barrels of water on the bullock, then four more, and again four more. The sacrifice was soaked and the trench was filled with water. Elijah said, "Hear me 0 Lord, hear me that this people may know that thou art the Lord God and that thou hast turned their heart Back again. " Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and licked up the water that was in the trench. When the people saw this they fell on their faces. Elijah said to them, "Take the priests of Baal and let not one of them escape. " AND ELIJAH TOOK THESE PRIESTS DOWN TO THE RIVER AND KILLED THEM, ALL 450 OF THEM.

    II Kings, 10th chapter: Elijah commanded Jehu to kill Ahab's seventy sons, then put their heads in baskets and sent them to Jezreel, laying them in two heaps at the entrance of the gate. Then Jehu took his men into Jezreel and killed all who remained of the house of Ahab, all his great men and his familiar friends and his priests until he left none remaining. Jehu then journeyed on to Samaria and called for all the men of Baal and their prophets and their priests and their servants to attend a worship of Baal. When they were inside, Jehu did as Elijah had commanded; he had his guard kill them all, burnt their images, broke down the house of Baal, and made it a latrine.

    Now according to today's clergy this was not a nice thing to do. Elijah should have condoned this evil. Did God punish him? Quite the opposite. Because he acted, Elijah never tasted of death. God took him into Heaven.

    NO REWARD COULD BE GREATER.

    Does God turn the other cheek and verbally admonish His Children when they mongrelize, or does He act? Jude, verse 7, says, "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, (non-white) are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. "

    Numbers 25: 7-13: Phineas took a Javelin and killed Zimr! (an Israelite) and Cozbi a Midianite (colored) woman for mongrelizing. Did God punish Phineas? No, God rewarded him; giving Phineas, and his seed after him, an everlasting priesthood. Should Phineas have turned the other cheek?

    When the clergy preach pacifism, turn the other cheek, tolerate evil, love thine enemy, they are teaching just the opposite of what God and the Bible want to be taught. With just a little study they would know that in Hebrew (not Yiddish) there are six words for enemy, all having a slightly different meaning, private, public, national, etc. The six words are: AYAB; OYEB; JSER; AR; SANE; SHARAR. Unfortunately, when translating to English they used the same word throughout - ENEMY.

    What God is actually jelling you is this: "Forgive thine enemy (personal) but slay Mine. " For example, you and I could both be good Christians, but we dislike each other; perhaps just a personality clash, or maybe you took advantage of me in some way. You are my White Racial Brother, a Son of God - we are both working for Christ, so I should forgive you. What'you did to me, although not right, is not that important in God's overall plan, but if you are an enemy of Christ then I should slay you. Luke 19: 27.

    To survive, the Jew must use all his power, in every field, to make sure that Christians are taught to turn the other cheek. The host must learn to love the parasite that is destroying him. It is an irrefutable Law of Nature that the parasite must destroy the host, even if in doing so, he destroys himself.

    The Jews know full well what God has promised them, and it is not that they shall rule and possess the world, as they would have you believe. If Satan's plan were successful and his children completely eliminated the White Race through mongrelization, THERE WOULD BE NO REASON FOR CHRIST TO RETURN, AS THERE WOULD BE NONE OF HIS CHILDREN HERE. This planet would become Satan's kingdom, with the Jews in full control. The black, yellow and mongrelized races would be their slaves.

    Consequently, these Jews live in cringing fear of the day when we awaken and become ACTIVE CHRISTIANS, for God says, "We shall be His battle axe. " IT SHALL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, AND THERE ARE NO JEWS IN HEAVEN.

    The Resurrection: Yeshua Messiah Lives!

    Resurrection and Liberty
    By Pastor Thomas Robb

    Matthew 28: 1-7

    The resurrection of Jesus Christ changed the world for ever. There has never been an event in all of history that had such a powerful impact on the affairs of the world.

    The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ must be looked upon as a singular event. The Death of Jesus Christ on Calvary would have no meaning if it was not followed by the resurrection three days later.

    But the resurrection would lose all meaning if it were not for the crucifixion. The story of the resurrection is not simply about Jesus Christ rising from the dead. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is what made the resurrection so important. The crucifixion is the story of the sacrifice and the atoning blood that was offered on the altar of Calvary. For four thousand years from Adam to the very hour in which Christ offered himself up, the only way to approach God was through the temple, the priests and the rituals of the religious law. But then Christ came, in fulfillment of the promise to Israel. Christ entered the temple ONCE and bought redemption with his blood forever.

    “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God.” Heb. 10:12.

    The crucifixion is the story of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to fulfill the promise made to our fathers. Heb 15:8. The crucifixion proved that God keeps his covenants to Israel.

    “But when the fullness of the times was come. God sent forth his Son, made of a women, made under the law. To redeem them that were under the law, (Israel) that we might receive the adoption of sons.” Gal 4:4-5.

    The resurrection was not just about a man who rose from the dead, but it was THE MAN, the God Man, whose earthly genealogy is traced through Israel and therefore establishing legal right to pay the price of redemption as the kinsmen redeemer of Israel.

    Why is the crucifixion and resurrection so important?

    The Resurrection of Jesus Christ brought three great blessings to Israel.

    #1 The resurrection bought salvation for our soul.

    #2 The resurrection brings peace and comfort to the believer.

    #3 The resurrection brought national liberty.


    Of course it would be impossible to fully examine each of these in the few short minutes we have. In fact thousands of books have been written and thousands of words have been spoken and the mystery still stands before us.

    We are left with the perplexing question WHY? Why did God have mercy upon us?

    The mystery and power of the resurrection is that Jesus bodily rose from the grave!

    He told Thomas to feel the scars in his hands.

    It was his body - not a spirit, not a replacement not a duplicate or a clone. It was His own body which rose from the dead!

    Let us now examine the first blessing which came about as a result of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    #1 The resurrection bought salvation for our soul.

    From the beginning of time, our forefathers knew that a messiah would come and redeem them.

    In the book of Daniel, 500 years before Christ, we can read the story of how Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace. They were faithful to the Lord and would not worship the golden image that the king had set up. The interesting part of this story is that 500 years before the birth of Jesus Christ, when old king Nebuchadnezzar looked into the fire he said, “Did we not cast three men into the fire, Lo I see four men walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

    In fact, seventeen hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ, the Bible records Job saying, “I know my redeemer liveth and he shall stand in the latter day upon the earth.”

    Isaiah wrote in chapter 7vs14 “Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Immanuel.”

    Every sacrifice laid upon the altar from Adam until the cross was done so in anticipation of the blood of Jesus Christ.

    Did these sacrifices take away their sin?

    No! They only pointed the way to the Cross. They could never find forgiveness of their sins by keeping a ritual.

    “For it is not possible for that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sin.” Heb 10:4. Also Heb 9:8-12.

    In other words, the Bible states that the sacrifices were useless. It was only by grace through which they could obtain forgiveness. “For I desired mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.” Hos 6:6.

    The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ bought our salvation. We could not earn it by living a good life, keeping religious rituals or sacrificing even a herd of sheep.

    Salvation comes through the unmerited grace of Jesus Christ.

    “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9.

    “For by grace are ye saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Eph 2:8-9 His death and resurrection was a fulfillment of the covenant God made with our Israel forefathers.

    Heb 15:8 Says that Christ came “to fulfill the promises made unto the fathers.” See also Isaiah 9:6, Matt 1:23.

    Luke 1:68 says “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for he has visited and redeemed His people.”

    The resurrection secured our salvation!

    #2 The resurrection brings peace and comfort to the believer.

    The Christian has hope in this life that passes all the understanding of mortal man. Nothing can reveal the inner contentment of an individual than to look at the songs he sings. For generations upon generations Christian have written songs of joy and comfort. There is not another religion that can make such a claim. Over the years there has been so many songs of faith written that it would take the rest of our lives to name them and sing them all. We sing songs of his birth, songs of his life, songs of his death, songs of his resurrection, songs of His blessing, songs of his love, and songs of his peace. There is hardly a spot in our white Christian Israel nations where a person can not find a Christian radio station. Christians can not sing enough to satisfy their desire to praise God.

    Christian men, women and children gather together in worship, not in fear of punishment for making God angry, but for no other reason than to recite scripture, hear words of faith from the pastor and to praise Jesus Christ.

    Songs of praise fill the lips of God’s people like no other. How Great Thou Art, What a Friend we Have in Jesus, Amazing Grace, In the Garden, The Lighthouse, There is Power in the Blood, The Old Rugged Cross, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, Higher Ground, He Touched Me, Just As I Am, Blessed Assurance, Ivory Palaces, Throw Out the Lifeline, and Faith of our Fathers are but a tiny example of the multitude of songs of our faith.

    The resurrection gave peace to our soul!

    #3 The resurrection brings freedom to our lives.

    Our national freedom the very concept of SELF GOVERNMENT is a result of the resurrection.

    The very existence of our civil liberties are directly related to the fact that our founding fathers recognized our rights of free speech, freedom to assemble, freedom of the press, freedom for self protection, freedom of religion and free enterprise are given from God.

    Not only were they God Given, but they were secured through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the very reason why these concepts of self-government sprang forth from the people of Europe. They are the children of the Covenant.

    Through the resurrection and the preaching of the Gospel God’s people (Israel) understood that no authority stand between God and man.

    We do not bow before any man, whether he be a government leader or an ecclesiastical leader. There is no king but King Jesus!

    In the Old Testament our forefathers were under the law of religious ritual. Man had to approach God through the ritual of sacrifice, temple worship, priests, feast days, and high holy days. Man was surrounded by the ritual of the ecclesiastical law. These religious laws and rituals were THE DOOR Israel went through to approach God.

    But with the coming of Jesus Christ - HE became THE DOOR. We could approach God directly through Jesus Christ. That is the great symbolism of the renting of the temple curtain at his crucifixion.

    No King or priest stood between us an God. The understanding of this concept became the basis for our Constitutionally protected rights of free speech, free press, freedom to worship God and free enterprises. They gave us a government ruled by the people who had but one higher authority - Jesus Christ!

    The resurrection of Jesus Christ gave salvation to our souls, peace to our lives and liberty for our nation.

    What other people have a God that can be likened to our God!

    “Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants,” I Kings 8:23

    Six-storey Jesus statue struck by lightning

    Six-storey Jesus statue struck by lightning


    A six-storey statue of Jesus Christ was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, leaving only a blackened steel skeleton and pieces of foam that were scooped up by curious onlookers Tuesday.

    The "King of Kings" statue, one of southwest Ohio's most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati.

    The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 p.m. Monday, Monroe police dispatchers said.

    The sculpture, about 19 metres tall and 12 metres wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown in American football.

    It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained Tuesday.

    The fire spread from the statue to an adjacent amphitheater but was confined to the attic area, and no one was injured, police Chief Mark Neu said.

    Estimated damage from the fire was set at US$700,000 — $300,000 for the statue and $400,000 for the amphitheater, Fire Capt. Richard Mascarella said Tuesday.

    The Ohio State Highway Patrol was at the scene Tuesday to prevent traffic jams and potential accidents from motorists stopping along the highway to take photographs.

    The patrol began issuing citations about 4 p.m. Tuesday to motorists for stopping on the side of the highway, dispatcher Adam Brown said. The number of gawkers coupled with construction had slowed I-75 traffic in the area to a crawl, the state Highway Patrol said.

    Some people were scooping up pieces of the statue's foam from the nearby pond to take home with them, said church co-pastor Darlene Bishop.

    "This meant a lot to a lot of people," she said.

    Keith Lewis, of nearby Middletown, arrived at the church around 7 a.m. Tuesday to photograph the remains for his wife. Lewis said he had viewed the statue as both an oddity and an inspiration.

    Cassie Browning, a church member from Dayton, said she was driving home when she saw smoke and noticed the statue was missing.

    Travelers on I-75 often were startled to come upon the huge statue by the roadside, but many said America needs more symbols like it. So many people stopped at the church campus that church officials had to build a walkway to accommodate them.

    Bishop said the statue will be rebuilt.

    "It will be back, but this time we are going to try for something fireproof," she said.

    The 4,000-member, nondenominational church was founded by Bishop and her husband, former horse trader Lawrence Bishop.
    Lawrence Bishop said in 2004 he was trying to help people, not impress them, with the statue. He said his wife proposed the Jesus figure as a beacon of hope and salvation.

    Exodus 20:4-6; "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yahweh thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments."

    Some people just never learn! :devil:

    Re: Jesus Christ: Real Person or Mythical Fad?

    I AM the Way, the Truth & the Life [2006] In this study Pastor John Visser expands upon Jesus' powerful statement found in John 14:6; “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” This terrific sermon not only further proves that Yahweh is the Messiah ( or Jesus Christ is God ) but also that only through the Living Word can the "way of life" be revealed to His chosen seed.
