Red Alert: Syria, Lebanon, And Iran In The Crosshairs

“Their feet run to evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, devastation and destruction are in their paths.” Isaiah 59:7



It’s ALL for Apartheid Israel

“I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them (Israel). It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” — U.S. Navy Admiral and former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Thomas Moorer, during an interview in August 1983.



A Regional War For Israel Is Coming

Excerpt from the article by Philip Giraldi

Israel controls Trump

With the appointment of leading neoconservative John Bolton as National Security Advisor, the Zionist war-party takeover of the White House is nearly complete. With Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State, Nikki Haley at the U.N. and now Bolton whispering in the President’s ear, we have a fully endowed war cabinet that will make sure the Mullahs, Russkies and Rocket Man begin to pay attention. As Haley laid down the law in the United Nations recently, “Our patience is not unlimited.”

Bolton, the point man for Israeli-American casino billionaire and GOP kingmaker Sheldon Adelson, will be the spark plug that ignites a new round of warfare on behalf of Israel. Bolton has long been planning to attack Iran. He secretly and illegally met with Israel’s Mossad intelligence service in 2003-4 when he was in the State Department under George W. Bush to lay the groundwork for such a conflict. Today, right-wing Israelis are certainly cheering his appointment. Naftali Bennett, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet, has already praised the move, calling Bolton “an extraordinary security expert, experienced diplomat and a stalwart friend of Israel”.

War is likely to start in the Middle East as Iran, Lebanon and Syria are relatively soft targets with only limited capability to strike back. As neocon pundit Michael Ledeen put it, “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.” There have been numerous indications that Israel is preparing for war. Its planning clearly includes deliberately involving the United States in the conflict, turning American soldiers into de facto hostages, with U.S. casualties guaranteeing Washington’s direct and immediate involvement in the fighting.

Largely unknown to the American public, the United States has just completed the largest ever joint military exercises with Israel even though it has no defense agreement or treaty with Tel Aviv. That is, in part, because military alliances are dependent on an attack on one partner mandating support from all parties to the agreement. Israel has balked at such an arrangement because it cannot define its own borders, which are constantly expanding.

The recent maneuvers featured scenarios in which U.S. troops fought Syrians, Lebanese and Palestinians in a mock-up Arab village to defend Israel. Washington’s particularly vulnerability vis-à-vis Israel derives from the recent opening of a U.S. permanent facility at Mashabim Air Base in the Negev Desert.

It is described as a base within a base, completely contained by an Israeli air force installation and operating “under Israeli military directives,” meaning that if the facility is attacked Americans will likely die. It has no function in support of U.S. regional interests but is instead a shell facility with a few dozen airmen that can be ramped up considerably if Israel goes to war and calls for American assistance. Together with billions of dollars-worth of U.S. military equipment that is pre-positioned in Israel and can be used by the Israelis as needed, it is all about supporting Israeli war-making and has nothing to do with American security or defense interests except as a tripwire to bring about U.S. involvement.

For that reason, all of the above is something more than just the latest “we have to support Israel” gimmick. The American soldiers and airmen who are now based in Israel are the sacrificial lambs that will guarantee U.S. entry into a war that Israel intends to start, make no mistake about that.

When Israel attacks Syria and/or Lebanon, as it clearly intends to do, Hezbollah will retaliate with its missiles, some of which will surely be directed towards the Mashabim Air Base, which will be targeted to inhibit the base’s ability to bomb Lebanon. And once Washington is well and truly engaged in what is referred to as “force protection,” Israel will undoubtedly widen the conflict by drawing Iran in through attacks on that country’s identified bases in Syria that are supporting the al-Assad government. The bigger war will suddenly become America’s responsibility after Israel inevitably proves itself incapable of handling the escalation.


The Coming War On Lebanon

Excerpt from the article by Timothy Alexander Guzman

Washington’s plan to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has ultimately failed. Now Lebanon seems to be in the crosshairs with tensions between Israel and Hezbollah on the same level that led to the 2006 Lebanon war. There is also the possibility that a new offensive against Syria might take place as Washington maintains its troop levels in the devastated country caused by ISIS and other terrorists groups they supported.

Various reports suggest that the Pentagon may reveal that there are close to 2,000 U.S. troops stationed in Syria even though ISIS has been defeated. So why is Washington staying in Syria? Will there be another attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the near future? Most likely, yes. Adding the Trump administration’s continued hostilities towards Iran, the drumbeats of a new war in the Middle East is loud and clear.

Israel is gearing up for a long and devastating war against Hezbollah, an Iranian-ally who is based in Lebanon’s southern region to deter Israel’s expansionist ideas. Israel understands that a defeat against Hezbollah and the Lebanese military will be absolutely difficult to accomplish, therefore preparations to engage the Hezbollah this time will be an effort to create as much damage as possible and reduce their military capabilities, maybe in time for U.S. troops to enter the war through Syria and coordinate targets with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Israel’s plan to launch more aggressive wars against its neighbors to further an expansionist objective would come at a great cost to Israeli citizens as their economy sinks into the rabbit hole and with the threat of incoming missiles from southern Lebanon makes it that much more worse. Lebanon and to an extent Israel will be once again devastated by a new war. For both sides of the border, it is a formula for disastrous consequences.


Iran Nuclear Deal Hysteria Is A Cry For War

By Views Of News

All those within Government and without who oppose the nuclear deal with Iran are only doing so to please Israel. Their hysteria is totally unfounded. If one wants peace, one must deal with one’s “enemies.” Roosevelt dealt with Stalin, Nixon with Mao Zedong, Kissinger with Le Duc Tho, Kerry with Castro, etc.

Those who cry wolf over the deal and want to attack Iran are only following the diktats of the Israeli terrorist-in-chief Benjamin Netanyahu. After all, he’s their god and whatever he says goes – that’s the only explanation for their idiotic stand. Watch this video of Netanyahu lambasting Iran in the US Congress, or not – after all, who can stand to watch that demonic and arrogant cad ordering the US around.

“If America goes to war with Iran, as is increasingly likely, it will be all about Israel,” said Philip Giraldi, Former CIA officer.

Consequently, when the Middle East is set ablaze and millions of people lose their lives, the world will know who to haul at The Hague for crimes against humanity.


Dumb Moves Have Consequences

Excerpt from the article by Philip Giraldi

President Donald Trump (withdrew the US) from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement with Iran that was signed by the U.S. and five other governments in July 2015. As one informed observer noted, “a train wreck is probably coming, with very damaging consequences that are hard to predict.”

The unfortunate truth is that going to war with Iran is popular among the policy makers and media for the usual reason: it is a major foreign policy objective of the Israeli government and its powerful U.S. lobby.

The U.S. and Israel are also expressing concern about Iranian ballistic missile capability. Again, ballistic missiles would appear to be a weapon that Israel alone seeks to monopolize in its neighborhood because it seeks to regard itself as uniquely threatened, that is, always the victim. It is an argument that sells well in the U.S. Congress and in the media, which has apparently also obtained traction in the White House. It is nevertheless a fake argument contrived by the Israelis. The missiles under development do not in any way threaten the United States and they were not in any event part of the agreement and should not be considered a deal breaker.

Add into the equation the clearly expressed and oft-times repeated Israeli intention to begin a war with Iran, starting in Syria, sooner rather than later, a disaster for American foreign policy is developing that might well make Iraq and Afghanistan look like cake walks. Iran will surely strike back in response either to the termination of the JCPOA or to Israeli bombing of its militiamen and surrogates in Syria. American forces in the region will surely be sucked into the conflict by Israel and will wind up taking the fall. Someone should tell Donald Trump that there are real world consequences for breaking agreements and rattling sabers.

Defining Moment For Putin: Stand Up To Israel

By Russia Insider

Russia must reconsider its current relationship with Israel because it is wrong for so many reasons, not least because it sends mixed messages to Russian allies in the Middle East.

First steps are already taken; Israel’s ambassador has been summoned to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. But they should be doing much more than this. The whole current crisis is a consequence of Israel’s desire to prop up controlled chaos in Syria for decades to come and Russia being silent when it comes to Tel Aviv’s constant air attacks against Syria.

Syrian base bombed by Israel

Why is Russia keeping silent when Israel bombs Syria, but threatens the US when it says it wants to do the same? Where’s the logic? Why can Israel do it and the US, as a world’s first superpower, cannot? If Russia is not ready to retaliate against Israel, why do they claim that they are ready to retaliate against the US? It makes no sense. Therefore, Russia should not give Israel a free pass and should impose a similar set of economic and political sanctions as in the case of the U.S.

In any case, Russia should make clear to Israel that in case of Russian-American global war, Israel will be one of the first to be wiped out with the help of Russian nukes. This will make them think twice before instigating a global conflict against Russia.

Russia needs to understand that this has nothing to do with Assad, Syria or even the Middle East. It has everything to do with Russia. Israel and the U.S. decided it is the perfect time to inflict a humiliating defeat on Russia in Syria and take them out of this complex equation.

If Russia does nothing and hides under the table while whining and protesting against illegal American, British, French and Israeli strikes against the Syrian people, it will be the ultimate defeat and humiliation for Russia and Putin.


Putin’s Rules Of Engagement In Syria

By Views Of News

Putin is an extremely wise and cunning politician who’s no one’s fool.

He knows that Israel, fiercely supported by Trump and his administration, is hell-bent on starting a new conflagration by baiting Syria, an ally of Iran and Russia, into a wider war. However, Putin will not allow Russia to be sucked in this Middle East quagmire.

For one, Putin is not interested in a wider war nor in provoking one. And second, he wants to position himself as the level-headed peace-seeking adult in the room for the future World Order that will send every country running to him.

Still, in case of a major Israeli war involving Syria (and even Iran) he will not stand idly by. The reason is simple: Putin ABSOLUTELY cannot permit Assad to be deposed a la Muammar Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein; otherwise he will lose the base in Syria, which he cannot afford – he’d look like a fool and Russia would forfeit all the clout and good will it accumulated worldwide.

What will he do in case of a war? His rules of engagement are probably thus.

a. When the BIG WAR explodes Russia’s involvement will most likely be COVERTLY executed (e.g., Russian Soldiers and Jet Fighters disguised as Syrians).

b. Russia’s sophisticated weapon systems in Syria will ONLY be unleashed in the event said BIG WAR, which Apartheid Israel wants so bad, becomes inevitable.

“Putin will continue to hold his water, waiting for the opportune moment to reverse his opponent,” writes Tom Luongo, political commentator. “Russia’s limit has not been reached in Syria yet. Putin always does this. It drives his critics and his supporters crazy. It’s geopolitical judo and he’s the master at it.

“And when that reversal comes and Israel has been thrown flat on its back, Trump’s only move will be to settle. Why speculate on what he’ll do. Just watch and wait it out. The signs are all there.”


Listen Up, Israel!

By Views Of News

Your antisemitism trick has come to an end. Most everyone knows you are NOT Semites.

Your terrorism trick has hit a brick wall. Most everyone knows that those so-called “Islamic Terrorists” are really Israelis.

Your war plans and provocations are fizzling at an alarming rate. Most everyone sees through your evil shenanigans.

Your apartheid state will not last very long. Even some of your clear-minded citizens admit that much.

So take the following advice:

  1. Admit that you are NOT really the Hebrews of the bible.
  2. Forget about that nonsensical “Promised Land” that supposedly extends all the way to the Euphrates.
  3. Stop slaughtering the Palestinians, create a bi-national state, repatriate all their refugees, and pay reparations to all the families you have hurt.
  4. Give back to Syria and Lebanon the land you’ve stolen from them and make peace with all your neighbors.

If you do all these things, you may still have a chance to redeem your soul.

Insight: Jewish Deception And Destruction

“Whatever you get, get insight. Proverbs 4:7



The world needs to acknowledge and deal with a number of lies and deceptions concerning today’s self-styled Jews, who have arrogantly placed themselves above the rest of humanity by crowning themselves God’s chosen people. In the process, they’ve made a mockery of the spirit of brotherhood our Lord Jesus commanded us to abide in.

“The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide.” – Hannah Arendt

Let’s get a clear notion of the truth today’s self-styled Jews are trying to obfuscate through intrigues and stratagems.



Are Jews The Israelites Of The Bible?

Even a cursory study would show that those today who are known as Jews are not remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham.

Why Israelis Speak Hebrew

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: If Jews are not Hebrews, how come Israelis speak Hebrew? Doesn’t that prove their Hebraic heritage?

Answer: No, it doesn’t prove their Hebraic heritage.

1) Non-Hebraic Rabbinists (followers of the Babylonian Talmud) have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews – see How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine and create modern-day Israel without the objection of the Christian world, especially since they were Eastern-European Nomads seeking a new country following the loss of their homeland Khazaria.

Then they – who originally spoke Yiddish – resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after thousands of years in the dustbin of oblivion to make it Israel’s official language. In so doing, they consolidated in the world’s mind the impression that they were Hebrews rightfully returning home, when in fact they were not.

However, in their lust to deceive the world they got blindsided and completely overlooked the fact that, following the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 B.C., not even the Hebrews spoke Hebrew. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus.

That’s why Mel Gibson made the movie The Passion of The Christ in that dialect. In turn, the Jews became furious – still on a vendetta against him – because Mel made them look ridiculous, especially as they wanted to be seen as “kinsmen” of Jesus, which they’re absolutely not. See Are Jews the Israelites of the Bible?

Deception: Yids who faked their Hebrew names

Further, as Jewish land thieves disembarked in Palestine in the 1940s to seize Palestinian lands and homes that Zionist terrorist groups – such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah – had stolen in order to turn the country into Israel, they adopted Hebrew names to complete their “Hebraization” process – not unlike what they did when they scattered throughout Europe and America and assumed European surnames. See Israel: Land of Impostors

“We all went ‘native’,” admits Uri Avnery, Israeli political commentator. “On reaching the age of 18, we all exchanged our Jewish names for Hebrew Names. (That’s how Uri Avnery came into being.) We started to think of ourselves as a new nation, with a new “soul”, connected to Judaism, sure, but mainly historically.”

2) Are all people in countries where English is spoken of English descent? No. Were all Catholics, who celebrated mass in Latin, Romans? No. A spoken language is not indicative of a person’s ancestry.

A simple Solution To The Israeli-Palestinian Problem

From our CHURCH REFORM series

Israel is an apartheid country that is revved up by the anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor.”

It has repudiated the Prince of Peace’s message of neighborly love and peace, and has embraced the genocidal spirit of conquest, terror, and subjugation, which has injected into the Middle East a cesspool of conflict and hate that has begun to metastasize worldwide.

Palestinian fortitude in the face of Israeli aggression

Israel also deceptively insists that the Israeli-Palestinian conundrum is the fault of the Palestinians, when nothing could be further from the truth.

The Israeli-Palestinian problem can be easily solved because the solution is very simple. It would be settled tomorrow if Zionist Jewish leaders were not such bloodthirsty thieves.

How Rabbinists Became Known As Jews

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

Of the 12 Hebrew tribes, Judah was the most faithful and the most active in making converts, especially after they teamed up with the Levites.

“For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the LORD.” 2 Chronicles 11:14

Their converts became known as the proselytes (i.e., the ones who prayed to Jehovah, the God of Judah).

“Judahites and proselytes Acts 2: 11

The other 10 tribes, collectively known as Israel, separated from Judah and always did evil in God’s eyes.

“Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.” Hosea 11:12

So while Judah was helping the priests in the implementation of their office, Israel was basking in evil. Thus Judah became the one that carried the torch of God’s light unto the nations.

It was a process that would culminate with the advent of Jesus the Christ and His church assembly. Because, just like the Christian Church, the Judahite Hebrew nation was a proselytizing nation that wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe; even though, at one point, the conversion process had become totally corrupted because of the pharisaic teachings. Let’s hear Jesus:

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

Later on, those proselytes, who obviously were not Judahite Hebrews and who adhered to the pharisaic teachings, became known as Rabbinists, while their religion was called Pharisaism/Rabbinism, and their “holy writ” was entitled the Talmud, a Babylonian book full of lies and superstitions.

In the 18th Century, those very same Rabbinists hijacked the words Jew and Judaism, in order to change their appellation along with that of their religion (just like when Blacks didn’t want to be called Negroes no more). A change that was purely cosmetic, as their beliefs, which are still found in their enduring and cherished Talmud, did not change one iota.

The idea behind such superficial name changes was to deceive the world into thinking they were the Judahite Hebrews of the bible.

And what was their reason for wanting to hoodwink the world?

Jew Focus

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Why don’t you have anything extensive about Islam? Like you do about Judaism?

Answer: For the same reason we don’t have anything about Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. We preach the ONLY truth: pure Christianity. That’s enough to get all those of different faiths to ponder on what they should adhere to.

We, however, zoom in on Judaism/Pharisaism and Zionist Israel because they have infiltrated the church with their anti-Christ spirit; the other religions have not.

“They shall raise their voices against the serpents (or malicious ones)…” Mark 16:17

Therefore, we must be obedient to God and raise our voices to warn of the destruction that follows in the wake of Bolshevik/Zionist/Neocon Jews (a parasite by any other moniker is still a parasite):

Jesus’s peace and morality had been steadily increasing throughout the world, until that deadly, persistent Talmudic Ashkenazic Khazarian (aka Jewish) virus, which invariably hates the Prince of Peace and His followers, craves immorality, and engenders wars, began its assault on Christian civilization. But it won’t win.

“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8

A few decades from now, a generation will look back and label this anti-Christ period of Jewish influence and manipulation as a New Dark Age.

“Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end…” Isaiah 9: 7

Was Einstein Really A Genius?

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

Albert Einstein’s name has strangely become synonymous with “genius.”

But we couldn’t find one thing that man invented or came up with that made our lives better or that was not a fraud. NOT ONE THING! Even the equation E=mc^2 that is attributed to him is apparently from an Italian named Olinto De Pretto who published it in the scientific magazine Atte in 1903.

Yet everyone knows who Einstein is. His face and name are plastered on everything that hints at “sheer ingenuity.” Even his so-called “accomplishments,” besides being theories to begin with, were unsupported conjectures that amounted and led to NOTHING, especially his Theory of Relativity (including the GPS & Relativity myth). Nikola Tesla, a real scientific genius, categorized said theory as “the greatest historical aberration of scientific thought.” See Puzzled Scientists.

Here are some true scientific geniuses and visionaries: Johannes Gutenberg, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Auguste and Louis Lumiere, Charles Babbage, Reginald Fessenden, Guglielmo Marconi, Thomas Edison, Karl BenzWilhelm Conrad Röntgen, Wright Brothers, Jack Kilby & Robert Noyce, Tim Berners Lee, Alexander Fleming, Louis Pasteur, and Steve Jobs,  just to name a few.

All of them either invented or contributed to the invention of not useless theories but of things that improved our lives and catapulted humanity to a higher level of productivity. Yet none of them is uplifted like Einstein. Then again unlike Einstein they were not and are not Jews (some are still alive), so the Jewish-controlled media inflate their own to godlike status – even when they’re fake – in order to propagandize their misappropriated appellation of God’s “Chosen People.” See How the Ashkenazi Jews conquered the West.

The Destroyers Of The World

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

“We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever.” – Maurice Samuel

If one truly believes the Zionist/Jewish-dominated media, their fake news, and their constant barrage of “Holocaust” movies, one genuinely thinks that there’s only one group of people that everyone on earth hates: Jews. That’s how effective the brainwashing has been.

However, when one wakes up from the media’s induced stupor one realizes that Zionist Jews are themselves the victimizers of the world who camouflage themselves as victims.

Bolshevik Revolution: The Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, killed 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches.

World War 1: Britain was losing the war against Germany. The Zionists stepped in and bribed President Wilson to get the US into the war to help them. In return, the Jews asked the British Empire to deed them Palestine to create Israel. Their wish was granted in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which cost the world 18 million dead.

World War 2: The Zionists fomented that war (just like they’re doing today with Iran and other countries in the Middle East), so that European Jews could feel threatened. The deception worked as European Jews fled in droves to Palestine and took over the homes of Palestinians, who were evicted at gunpoint and then either massacred or driven out of their land into neighboring Arab countries. With enough Jews on the ground, Israel was created in 1948 at a cost of 80 million dead.

World War On Terror: Zionist/Jewish neocons, in cahoots with their bought-and-paid-for politicians in the US government, perpetrated their act of terrorism on 9/11. Then they conveniently blamed it on Muslims so as to obtain a green light to destroy the Middle East using the armies of the US and NATO and the terrorist groups they finance, with the ultimate view to creating Greater Israel. So far, the death toll is over 3 million, including Christians.

World War 3: With Russia protecting Syria and Iran from Israel’s Machiavellian design, will the Zionists succeed in bringing the world once again to the brink of disaster to create Greater Israel? If they do, will it instead bring about their downfall?

Conclusion: It’s a shame that Jews who stand up to Zionism form a minority. The well-financed and extremely powerful Zionist movement, revved up by a foul and racist ideology, drowns out their voices.

Zionist Jews of all stripes – secular, religious, political – have no concept of God’s commandment to love thy neighbor. Instead, the anti-Christ spirit of hate thy neighbor permeates their souls with a sulfuric stench, while Israel remains the undiluted expression of said diseased spirit – a scourge,  a cancer that needs to be dealt with.

Appeal: Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel and everything made there.

What’s Really Going On In The Middle East

From our VIEWS OF NEWS section

Many are under the impression that the chaos that is spreading throughout the Middle East is to protect the petrodollar and secure oil resources for American and Western companies.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

First, the petrodollar is backed by Saudi Arabia and the other Arab countries. Yet, the US Congress recently passed a law that allows victims of “terrorism” to sue the Saudis. See this Post here.

That’s not how one maintains the hegemony of the petrodollar. Besides, if the petrodollar was the concern, Israel would be the first country to go, as most Arab countries do not support the theft of Palestine by the Zionists.

Second, oil resources are available all over the world, including the US; so there’s no need for war to control them. At the beginning of the oil rush it might have been a truism that war was necessary, not anymore.

“Oil and gas are abiotic, [and] can be found deep below the surface of the earth in most parts of the world and in very large amounts,” wrote Vinod Dar in Abiotic Oil and Gas

In general, it is true that wars waged by the US are mostly for American control of natural resources, territorial expansions, and the benefit of the Military Industrial Complex. It is also true that all US imperialistic moves are always meant to benefit the country’s most influential elite of the time.

For instance, the Vietnam war was to favor the elite that controls the Military Industrial Complex, whereas the banana wars were engineered to secure control over banana plantations in South America and the Caribbean for another segment of the American elite. The most blatant of the banana wars were in Honduras where the US intervened seven times between 1903 and 1925. None of these wars was about the US dollar.

Today, the US’s most demanding and most pernicious elite are the Jews, who are only satisfied when Israel takes center stage in US foreign policy.

“It does not take a genius to figure out that the United States is deeply involved in a series of seemingly endless wars pitting it against predominantly Muslim nations even though Washington has no vital interests at stake in places like Syria, Libya and Iraq,” explains Philip Giraldi, Former CIA officer.

“Who is driving the process and benefiting? Israel is clearly the intended beneficiary of a coordinated effort mounted by more than 600 Jewish organizations in the U.S. that have at least as part of their programs the promotion and protection of Israel. If America goes to war with Iran, as is increasingly likely, it will be all about Israel and it will be arranged by the political and financial services Washington-Wall Street axis, make no mistake.”

So for the first time in America’s history, US-led wars are being waged to benefit a foreign nation, Israel, by wagging America from within, using the Jewish AIPAC as its whipping mechanism and bribe money as its corrupting influence.

Still, the US does want to maintain hegemony of the US Dollar. It does so through American control of powerful financial institutions worldwide, bribe, globalism, coups d’état, assassination, etc.

However, all current wars, conflicts, and fabricated terrorism in the Middle East are only to benefit Israel, destroy its perceived enemies, and facilitate its expansion plan.

Americans had better wake up before it’s too late! The Israeli parasitic infestation of the US government has reached critical mass.

“That (Jewish) stranglehold has got to be broken or this country is going down the drain,” explained Evangelist Billy Graham to President Nixon.


Urgent Appeal To Christians Who Support Israel

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

We know deep down no real Christian would support evil.

IDF Sniping Palestinian kids

Notice the Israeli Sniper’s bullet right through the heart of the deceased Palestinian boy

Doing so would be antithetical to everything our Christian faith stands for. Besides, we know that many of you were fed a bunch of lies concerning the ungodly State of Israel, which in turn caused you to sanction its demonic actions that are all contrary to God’s commandments.

Converted Jews of today are NOT the Hebrews of the bible. They’re Eastern European nomads who lost their country Khazaria and were in search of a new land. So they stole Palestine and renamed it Israel pretending to be Hebrews, when all Hebrews are irrevocably dead. See A Brief History of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah.

a) Modern Israel is not comprised of the 10 Hebrew tribes like in scriptures; b) the country’s current geographical demarcation is not as delineated by God in the book of Joshua; c) the nation would be called Judah instead of Israel, with the Levites sheltered therein, if Jews today were of the tribe of David; and d) the modern impostor state of Israel is made up of Jewish converts who are not Semitic descendants of Abraham.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

Therefore, as you shake off the falsehoods you were brainwashed with, we ask the following of you.

Gaza Christians mourning their dead

Stop encouraging the US Government to fund Israel to the tunes of billions of dollars a year out of America’s coffers for Israel to wage war and oppress another people, while millions of Americans go hungry, jobless, and homeless.

Stop organizing fund raisers for the Zionist “settlers.” In so doing you’re actually helping these land thieves steal another people’s land, while empowering them to kill the original inhabitants in the process.

Stop lobbying the US government to provide the Apartheid criminal state of Israel with diplomatic cover in the international community.

For the sake of peace, start doing the opposite.

Call your political representative and give him/her a piece of your mind: that Israel should no longer get away with murder, and that Israel should accept a Palestinian State. Then organize mission trips to the West Bank and Gaza. Stop these pussyfooting “Holy” Land tourist trips. Go and help the oppressed. That’s the Christian mandate.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17

Unfortunately, many of you, poisoned by compromised preachers and their false teachings in reference to converted Jews being “God’s chosen people,” are infected with Israel’s anti-Christ spirit of hate thy neighbor, especially you leaders of the “Christian” media who sold out Jesus and His Love-Thy-Neighbor command to Israel for 30 pieces of Jewish silver. Your unabashed loathing of Arabs and Muslims to please the Jews is shamefully evident to all.

“The companion of fools will suffer harm.” Proverbs 13:20

Remember the words of our Savior when you, with that anti-Christ spirit, call Him Lord – so don’t be surprised on Judgment Day.

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7: 15, 22-23

However, you can cure yourselves.

“If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7

Call To Action: Christians United For Palestine

“I will show you my faith by my deeds.James 2:18



Supporting Palestinians Living Under The Yoke Of Israeli Oppression



CUFPa is comprised of Christians from all over the world fighting for a Free Palestine.

They cross denominational lines and join together as one to face the greatest threat to world peace today: Israel, which is manipulating and wagging the American Empire to set the Middle East on fire to create Greater Israel.

In the process, the racist Israelis are brutalizing the Palestinian people and dispossessing them of not only their homes and land, but also of their freedom and dignity by treating them like no-class citizens in the ugliest form of Apartheid.

Join CUFPa in their fight against Israeli oppression, racism, and war crimes by sharing their site with others and by becoming active and vocal, while exercising a personal boycott of Apartheid Israel and everything made there.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17

Make sure you visit CUFPa’s site and support such an important agenda.

The Church Cannot Stay Quiet

Christians United For Palestine

Catholic News Agency

– The Catholic Church will speak out against injustice and avoid any attempt to normalize the “festering wound” of the Israeli-Palestinian situation, a commission from the region’s leading Catholic bishops has said.

Targeting Children

Israeli Monsters #1 Target: Palestinian Children

“The Church cannot ignore fundamental injustice or acts that endanger peace and the welfare of the human person.

“By her very nature, the Church opposes occupation and discrimination and is committed to promote justice and peace as well as the unique dignity and equality of every human person.

“The Church can never ignore injustice as if all is well but rather is obligated to speak out, resist evil and work tirelessly for change. Like the prophets of old, the Church, a prophetic body, points out injustice and denounces it,” the Justice and Peace Commission said.

The Justice and Peace Commission saw an important intersection between the Church’s position against injustice, and political discourse against “normalization” of the Israeli-Palestinian situation. The local Church is responsible for reminding the universal Church that the situation is “an open, festering wound and that the situation cannot be considered normal,” the commission said.

While in the State of Israel, Jews and Arabs have equal rights in principle, in practice Arabs face discrimination in access to development, jobs, education, and public funding for their cities, the group added.

“Some of these forms of discrimination are embedded in legislation, but others are indirect and hidden.”

The military occupation of Palestine undermines the residents’ daily lives, through settlement, road-building, Israeli construction on Palestinians’ private land, but also military incursion, assassination, arbitrary arrest, collective punishment, confiscation of land, and destruction of houses. Checkpoints limit their freedom of movement, which hinders economic development and family reunification.

“In both societies, Israeli and Palestinian, the life of the Palestinians is far from normal and acting as if things were normal ignores the violation of fundamental human rights.”

Palestinian citizens need Israeli permits and approval for many parts of life, such as visiting holy sites and Palestinian parishes, schools and hospitals in Israeli-occupied Jerusalem. Similarly, they need Israeli permits to build homes and businesses in Israeli-controlled areas.

South Africa Cuts Off Ties With Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

If there’s a country that knows about Apartheid, it’s South Africa.

And the fact that they’ve cut off all diplomatic ties with Israel is not only symbolic, but a powerful catalyst that will energize the coming downfall of Apartheid Israel.

“The South African government is intending to cut diplomatic ties with Israel in protest of its treatment of the Palestinian people, the country’s Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor announced yesterday,” reports Zero Hedge. “Pandor informed parliamentarians of the government’s resolution during a ten-hour joint debate on South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) that he delivered last week.”

Confirming the decision, Minister Pandor said: “The majority party has agreed, that government must cut diplomatic ties with Israel, given the absence of genuine initiatives by Israel to secure lasting peace and a viable two-state solution that includes full freedom and democracy for the Palestinian people.

That move is in no small part due to the pressure put on the S.A. government by the people of South Africa themselves. Bravo!


Oscar Celebrities #SkipTheTrip To Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By Ramah Kudaimi, USPCR

Israel had offered all-expenses-paid trips to 2016 Oscars host Chris Rock and 25 top nominees including Mark Ruffalo, Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Mark Rylance, and Cate Blanchett. The Israeli tourism ministry organized the trip with hopes that the superstars would use their platforms to show Israel in a positive light, countering worldwide outrage over Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

So what happened? It was an utter failure. Now, it appears that not a single star visited Israel. The AFP wire service even ran this extraordinary headline appearing in many media outlets, “Israel invited 26 Oscar stars to visit. So far none has.

Bringing celebrities to Israel has long been part of a “Brand Israel” strategy to improve the country’s image abroad. As Israeli tourism minister Yariv Levin explained last year, “These are the most senior people in the film industry in Hollywood and leading opinion-formers who we are interested in hosting. Their visit will have enormous resonance among millions of fans and followers, including social media.” But as of now, the Israeli tourism ministry would not confirm any visits by the stars, and there was no evidence of trips on social media.

It seems that the harder Israel tries to improve its image, the worse it fails. That news comes on the heels of former Super Bowl star Michael Bennett and several other NFL stars also choosing to #SkipTheTrip that they were offered by Israel.

Far from achieving their desired effect, these propaganda trips give us an opportunity to create broader awareness about the Israeli government’s brutal policies and attempts to whitewash them. While not every celebrity will turn down such offers, our cultural boycott campaigns are ensuring that every celebrity facing the choice must now consider the Israeli government’s cynical motivations and the impact on Palestinian communities struggling to survive.

That’s why days after the Oscars trips were announced last February, the US Campaign helped organize a coalition of Palestinian, Israeli, European, and U.S. organizations to launch a #SkipTheTrip campaign including a petition to the stars, individual letters to actors, and a comprehensive social media strategy. The dynamic campaign included creative memes, a comical video, and a satirical invitation from the legendary Brian Eno highlighting the types of “holiday” experiences one could have visiting Palestine like being interrogated, tear-gassed, beaten, and shot at.

Our efforts caught the attention of the Academy, which quickly distanced itself from the gift bags that included the trip and filed a lawsuit against the company that put them together. Then, when we tried to place an ad with member group Jewish Voice for Peace in Variety — the most important paper in the entertainment industry — calling on performers to #SkipTheTrip, we were censored! We were not about to be stopped. We called out Variety’s double standard and placed a full-page ad in the LA Times, generating headlines worldwide.

In the end, Israel’s big Oscars outreach campaign to showbusiness ended up netting them a bunch of no-shows instead.

Congratulations to everyone whose efforts led to a great victory. And if you want to be a critical part of future successful campaigns like this one, please consider making a contribution to the US Campaign today.


Every Christian’s Goals

By CUFPa

“…the assembly of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

The pillar of the truth has been severely damaged by Jewish Zionist lies and manipulation. It’s time to repair it. To do so, the following are needed:

1. REMOVE the word Jew from the translated Christian Bible, since it is not in the original non-translated version.
2. Organize a BOYCOTT of the Apartheid and Oppressive state of Israel.
3. Propagate the fact that today’s converted JEWS ARE NOT the Hebrews of the bible, and have no so-called divine right to historic Palestine.

4. Promote a ONE-COUNTRY solution where Christians, Jews, and Muslims have the same right in the land.

It’s about time we Christians became once again the buttress of the TRUTH, and leaders in the fight against OPPRESSION.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17


Israelis Sniping Palestinian Children

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

“The bloodthirsty hate the innocent.” Proverbs 29:10

Israel is not a country. It is a den of vipers, whose crimes against humanity would make Hitler blush.

To understand the Israelis’ mindset in committing crimes with impunity, there’s no one better to explain it than Israeli journalist Arieh Shavit, “We believe with absolute certitude that right now, with the White House in our hands, the Senate in our hands and The New York Times in our hands, the lives of others do not count the same way as our own.”

Palestinian Children Killed

Moshe Ya’alon, Former Israeli Defense Minister: “Proud of killing the most Palestinians.”

Small boys baited

“Israeli cruelty, and what Palestinians view as sheer hatred for their children, was epitomized by the killing of 13-year-old Iman Darweesh Al Hams,” wrote Kamel Hawwash in his article Israel implements a deliberate policy to terrorize Palestinian Children.

“She was shot by Israeli army soldiers from an observation post in what Israel claimed was a ‘no-man’ zone near the Philadelphi Route in Rafah. As if that were not enough, the Israeli army commander fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into Hams’s body. A year later, that commander during trial expressed no regret over his actions and said he would have ‘done the same even if the girl was a three-year-old.’

“He was cleared of all major charges.”


Israel’s Moral Bankruptcy

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

“Moral Bankruptcy: the state a person reaches when he trades away or violates too many moral values.” – Peg O’Connor, Ph.D.

How many

How many Israeli terrorists does it take to arrest one Palestinian kid?

The moral bankruptcy of a people can easily be gauged by the way they treat children. Israel has shown time and time again that it is past being morally bankrupt. It is way into dark territory, satanic even.

“The Israel Defence Force’s arbitrary use of violence against Palestinian children, including forcing them to act as human shields in military operations, has been exposed by veteran soldiers in detailed statements chronicling dozens of brutal incidents,” writes journalist Ruth Pollard.

“The most disturbing trend that emerges from the soldiers’ testimonies relates to the wounding and killing of children in the occupied West Bank and Gaza by either targeted shooting or by failing to protect minors during military operations, the report from veteran soldiers’ group Breaking the Silence says.”

Children who survive the IDF’s inhumane treatment while in detention are left scarred for life.

“In most cases, I found children who suffer from various traumas,” recounts documentary photographer Samar Hazboun. “Some were not able to talk about what had happened in prison; others burst into tears. In many cases, the children suffer from insomnia, involuntary urination, nightmares, depression, and fear of going out and facing people.”

Political analyst Randa Wahbe goes further: “Since the beginning of the second Palestinian uprising against Israel’s occupation in the early 2000s, over 10,000 Palestinian minors have been arrested by the Israeli military and subjected to cruel treatment, interrogation, and imprisonment – most are arrested on flimsy charges of stone throwing, punishable for up to 20 years. According to Defense for Children International-Palestine and UN OHCHR, 82% of minors experience physical violence at the hands of Israeli soldiers during their arrest and detention, and 97% of children undergo military interrogation without a parent present.

“On average, children spend 13 days in solitary confinement. During this period of intense isolation and questioning, children are coerced into signing confessions, written in Hebrew, a language most cannot understand or read, and are then indicted on that basis. Considering that the military court has a 99.7% conviction rate, the fastest way for a child to be released from custody is by pleading guilty, even when they are innocent.

“Israel is the only country in the world that systematically tries children in military court. At least 700 children are tried every year. It is worth noting that Israeli children illegally living in settlements on Palestinian land are subject to Israeli civil law rather than military law, further indicating the racist and discriminatory use of law for the purpose of criminalizing Palestinians.

“Now, more than ever, it is urgent for Congress to pass Betty McCollum’s proposed bill, which would prevent the use of US tax dollars for the Israeli military’s detention and mistreatment of Palestinian children.

“The message of McCollum’s bill is simple: As Israel’s largest benefactor, the US must stop funding Israel’s human rights abuses against children.

“Congress shouldn’t stop with this bill. Israel uses military law as a weapon to stifle any form of Palestinian resistance against its now 69-year-old military occupation and colonization of Palestinian land. Over 800,000 Palestinians have been arrested since the military occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and upwards of one million have been arrested since 1948. Political detention is central to entrenched occupation, and Congress must stop funding the instruments of oppression that affect Palestinians.

“Palestinians of all ages should not be persecuted for maintaining steadfastness on their land, nor should they be targeted for struggling for their freedom.”

Meet The Fake Hebrews

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

Converted Jews of today are not the Hebrews of the bible.

They have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews – see How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine and create modern-day Israel without the objection of the Christian world, especially since they were Eastern-European Nomads seeking a new country following the loss of their homeland Khazaria.

As Jewish land thieves disembarked in Palestine in the 1940s to seize Palestinian lands and homes that Zionist terrorist groups – such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah – had stolen in order to turn the country into Israel, they adopted Hebrew names to complete their “Hebraization” process – not unlike what they did when they scattered throughout Europe and America and assumed European surnames.

“We all went ‘native’,” admits Uri Avnery, Israeli political commentator. “On reaching the age of 18, we all exchanged our Jewish names for Hebrew Names. (That’s how Uri Avnery came into being.) We started to think of ourselves as a new nation, with a new ‘soul’, connected to Judaism, sure, but mainly historically.”

Then they – who originally spoke Yiddish – resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after thousands of years in the dustbin of oblivion to make it Israel’s official language. In so doing, they consolidated in the world’s mind the impression that they were Hebrews rightfully returning home, when in fact they were not.

However, in their lust to deceive the world they got blindsided and completely overlooked the fact that, following the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 B.C., not even the Hebrews spoke Hebrew. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus.

Consequently, Israeli Jews are nothing but impostors living on stolen Palestinian land.

Their very presence in historic Palestine is the working of dark spiritual forces, which are trying to destroy the New Covenant of Christ by “resurrecting” the obsolete Old Covenant, using converted pharisaic Jews who are NOT even remotelydescendants of the patriarch Abraham.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

In so doing, they hope to totally muddy up the Christian faith, and obscure the truth of the superseded Old Covenant and of Christ’s fulfilled prophecies concerning the total annihilation of the Hebrew people and the destruction of Jerusalem, which took place in 70 A.D.

“For the land is full of adulterers; it mourns because of the curse. Their pastures have dried up into a wilderness. Their course also is evil, and their might is not right.” Jeremiah 23: 10

There has not been peace in the Middle East the moment non-Hebraic, pharisaic Jews set their sight on Palestine and created Israel in 1948.

The founding of that Apartheid country was forged on lies, especially on the misrepresentation that today’s Jews are Hebrews rightfully taking possession of inherited land, when in fact they’re NOT Hebrews at all – all Hebrews are irrevocably dead, their land inheritance buried along with them.

“The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” 2 Kings 17:18,20


Churches Are Standing Up

Christians United For Palestine

By Anna Balzer

Stand UpHave you heard the news? In the last several weeks alone, more than 35 local, regional, national, and international church bodies have taken bold actions in support of Palestinian rights!

A flurry of churches — 17 and counting — have declared themselves HP-free across the country in denominations including American Baptist, United Methodist, United Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalist, Presbyterian, Church of the Brethren, Quaker, Catholics, and others, as Friends of Sabeel – North America announced this week. The global Boycott HP Campaign campaign continues to escalate pressure on HP until it responds to these key questions and commits to ending its role in Israel’s abuses of Palestinian rights. Are you part of a church? Learn how your congregation can become HP-free. It’s easier than you think!

These principled churches have brought local congregations into the larger snowball of regional, national, and international churches taking action. Brace yourselves… there are a lot of them!

  • The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada affirmed the rights of Palestinian children and called for withholding U.S. military aid to Israel with a nearly unanimous vote!
  • The World Communion of Reformed Churches, with a membership of 80 million Christians worldwide called for solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and rejected any use of the Bible to legitimize injustice.
  • The Mennonite Church voted by approximately 98% to institute a policy against investment in Israel’s military occupation!
  • The United Church of Christ (UCC) General Synod (national) passed with 79% a resolution in defense of Palestinian children, having already passed divestment in 2015.
  • JThe Minnesota Conference of the UCC voted 144 – 5 to divest its $8 million in investments from companies involved in the occupation.
  • Fifteen United Methodist Annual Conferences — representing thousands of congregations — adopted a total of 23 resolutions this year supporting the HP boycott, excluding investment in occupation, opposing anti-BDS legislation, and more.

That’s a lot to take in! After you’ve caught your breath, take a moment to thank the DisciplesMennonites, and UCC so they know what broad support they have in this time.

17 Christian Groups Defend Right To Boycott Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter

A coalition of 17 Christian groups have sent a letter to Congress, urging them to reject a bill that would make it official U.S. policy to oppose boycotts of Israel.

The various Christian leaders, including many liberal mainline Protestants, sent the letter Monday, arguing that the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” that is going through both houses would unjustly suppress “nonviolent peaceful action meant to bring about social change.”

“We are concerned by any legislation that suppresses legitimate criticism of public policy, and that restricts freedom of expression and our ability to determine our own witness through investment and selective purchasing practices,” read the letter.

The faith leaders also stressed in the letter that they view their efforts as “an effort to change unjust Israeli policy toward Palestinians,” but not “to delegitimize the State of Israel, nor to marginalize or isolate our Jewish neighbors, or their enterprises.”

“As churches and church-related organizations, we reject any efforts by the state to curtail these rights. We urge you to oppose the proposed legislation, and thus support the rights of individuals and institutions to spend and invest in accordance with their faith, values, and policies,” they concluded.

Signatories of the letter included the Rev. Teresa Hord Owens, president of the Disciples of Christ; Jim Winkler, president of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA; the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; J. Herbert Nelson, II, stated clerk of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); and the Rev. John Dorhauer, president of the United Church of Christ.

Introduced in the Senate as S.720 and in the House as HR 1697, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act would amend the Export Administration Act of 1979 to prohibit support of international state-sponsored boycotts of Israel by U.S. citizens engaged in interstate or international commerce.

The “findings” section of S.720 explained that the United States has a history of opposing boycotts against Israel by international bodies.

“For a half century, Congress has combated anti-Israel boycotts and other discriminatory activity under the Export Administration Act of 1979,” noted the bill.

“Congress recently passed anti-boycott, divestment, and sanctions measures in the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 …”

The bill has bipartisan support in both the Senate and the House.

To Infinity And Beyond

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Infinity: Finite And Infinite
Thoughts on the eternal

Thoughts on the Eternal by Laisk Serg

To be finite is to be a small part of infinity.

We humans are finite or partial and possess only finite minds; therefore we cannot comprehend nor grasp the whole which is infinity, God’s domain. And because God Himself is infinite and not finite, He is thus whole and perfect, thereby not partial; ergo He’s uncreated in His infinity.

However, because we’re created (i.e., plucked out of infinity), thus limited, finite, and partial, we cannot fathom anything that is not created, just the way we cannot truly fathom God’s perfection because of our imperfection.

Consequently, we, finite, imperfect, and partial beings, know and understand only in part, but one day we will know and understand fully – when we are reattached to the Eternal Lord in His infinity (or eternity), from hence we came.

“For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away… Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully…” 1 Corinthians 13: 9,10,12

Beyond: Our Mortality
antonio-de-pereda-allegory-of-vanity

Allegory of Vanity by Antonio De Pereda

It is quite strange that our mortality, especially during the stronger years of our lives, doesn’t much occupy our thoughts. It seems that the vigor of our younger selves always manages to steal away the reality of what awaits us at the end of the journey.

You would think, because death is only a breath away from spoiling our fleshly abode, that we would stop and think of the seemingly futility of it all; but no, we don’t.

As a matter of fact, in spite of the dreadful end which awaits us, we work without ceasing, generation after generation, to build as wonderful and magnificent a world as possible.

The result so far would not have been possible if we had stopped to seriously ponder on our guaranteed demise; and even though we know for a fact that we will die, we continually act as if we will not.

Which begs the question: why are we so disposed?

“He has also set eternity in the human heart.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

That’s why.

God has set eternity in our hearts, and no one can remove it.

“I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it.” Ecclesiastes 3:14

The eternal spark that burns deep within our souls powers up our productivity and causes our lives to be fruitful. It’s almost as if we “instinctively” know our endeavors have eternal strings attached.

Consequently, our work is anything but futile since whatever we do we do for God, who alone holds the master plan which contains the end result of our combined labor.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

The account of our earthly toil will be settled in eternity by the great Lord Himself, with either a reward or a punishment.

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness… And throw the worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 25:21,30

Similar compensations will also be meted out for our obedience or disobedience to His commandments.

“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.” John 5: 28-29

Turning Humans Into Pavlov Dogs

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Classical conditioning (also known as Pavlovian or respondent conditioning) is a learning process in which an innate response to a potent stimulus comes to be elicited in response to a previously neutral stimulus.” — Wikipedia

“A bully pulpit is a position sufficiently conspicuous to provide an opportunity to speak out and be listened to. This term was coined by President Theodore Roosevelt…” — Wikipedia

Bully PulpitHave you ever wondered why politicians adopted and spread propaganda-style the expression Bully Pulpit, a term that reeks of religious connotation?

First, allow us to advance an explanation as to the true meaning of the term Bully Pulpit, not the “terrific platform” meme that was peddled by Theodore Roosevelt and his ilk.

When Christians go to church they are “bullied” to no end by a preacher who stands behind a “pulpit.” The reason it is qualified as bullying is because the preacher single-handedly commandeers Christ’s authority unto himself, as he disregards every gathering or assembly law stipulated by Christ and the Apostles in the bible. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

Christians have been so “properly conditioned and programmed” by the Bully Pulpit practice that politicians salivated with envy, and could not resist the compulsion to appropriate it for their own end.

Who can blame them?

Let’s face it. Bully-Pulpitism is a very effective brainwashing method.

When believers attend church they are not allowed to speak or express their minds, even when the “preacher” spews out false dogmas. They are trained to passively sit in the pews and to robotically say “Amen.” They are thus perfectly molded to accept anything a mortal and fallible man says as long as he happens to stand behind a “pulpit.” Consequently, from a spiritual perspective, the Body of Christ suffers a debilitating paralysis. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

However, for government leeches such a method is Nirvana or Elysium; Scoundrel Heaven, if you prefer.

The Pavlov Experiment

“Preachers do it and get away with it,” they properly deduced. “Why not use it for our benefit? Most of the work is already done. All we have to do is get the sheeple to associate us with the word ‘pulpit’ and… Abracadabra!”

Hence politicians have not only arrogated Bully-Pulpitism, they have perfected it to such a degree that Authoritarianism is becoming the norm almost everywhere.

That’s why Presidents, Congressmen, Politicians, and Public Servants of all stripes act all indignant whenever people question their actions or their stands on the issues.

“How dare the sheeple talk back to us?” they bark. “They’re supposed to stay quiet and acquiesce with just ‘Amen.'”

The political practice of Bully-Pulpitism has become so bad that the People’s Representatives even vote against the will of the people they supposedly represent, not feigning so much as a modicum of care for the wishes of their constituents. Said disposition has even trickled down to cops who have turned savagely wild on those they have sworn to protect and serve.

To further cement the process, these government rascals, in cahoots with  the Medical Community, have engineered a solution for those who dare think for themselves and question “Authority.” See Of Authority and Christians for an exposé.

They classify them as mentally ill.

In reality, such a dubious “scientific” diagnosis should have been expected. It wasn’t long ago that these whorish pseudo-scientists bravely concluded that two-year-olds who naturally act out suffer from Oppositional Defiant Disorder. It must be that behind their own “pulpit” of Make Believe or Make Disease, Anti-Authoritarianism – as a “sickness” – is a natural extension or progression of that invented kiddy disorder.

CONCLUSION

Bully-Pulpitism originated in the Church. It then extended to the political arena where savvy propagandists made sure it infiltrated every stratum of society. Unfortunately for all, it has turned fully cognitive humans into pitiful Pavlov dogs.

“We must obey God rather than human beings!” Acts 5:9

When Bad Things Happen

God Is Not Unaware
C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

“When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?” Amos 3: 6

When bad things happen, it is because the Lord purposed it.

“And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that Job has is in your hand…'” Job 1:11

In effect, God handed Job over to Satan. As a result, disaster struck his house.

“…another also came and said, ‘Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.’ ” Job 1: 18, 19

“Then Satan… smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head…” Job 2: 7

THE HANDING OVER

God doesn’t hand anyone over to the dark forces unless such a one has sinned. And all of us have sinned, so we’re all fair game.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” Romans 3: 23

“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.” Psalm 51: 5

Many will say that Job was a righteous man and always made sure his sins and the sins of his family were covered.

“When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would make arrangements for them to be purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, ‘Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.’ This was Job’s regular custom.” Job 1: 5

Job's children killed by Satan

Job’s children killed by Satan

Were Job’s children sinning? Of course. So why the use of Perhaps? It was Job thinking, fooling himself, like many parents do today.

So even though the bible doesn’t openly reveal it, deep down Job knew about the unrighteous ways of his children. Parents always know.

Otherwise, what was that obsession or custom Job had in offering a burnt sacrifice for each of them?

It’s also no surprise God allowed them all to be killed.

They were most likely spoiled beyond redemption, with hearts lifted up, souls that ignored their Maker (hence Job offering sacrifices for them instead of them for themselves), and a lifestyle that welcomed excess – causal effects of their father’s unfathomable success, not unlike the sons of the prophet Eli.

“His (Job’s) sons used to hold feasts in their homes…” Job 1:4

“Take care lest you forget the LORD your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God…” Deuteronomy 8: 11 – 14

“Now the sons of Eli were corrupt and did not know the Lord… the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.” 1 Samuel 2:12, 4:11

Job might have been “blameless and upright” (Job 1:1), but he was also sinning in a way only God could see.

“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16: 7

He was conceited and arrogant, a sin that finally surfaced during the handing over.

“Know then that God has wronged me…” Job 19: 6

Really? God wronged Job?

At that point, Job had lost sight of the fact that none of us is righteous on our own. Therefore we cannot be wronged by God. Our righteousness solely comes from God’s election of us as His children, and as such only said choice causes us to become righteous.

When we become Christians, we become righteous through Jesus’s doing, hence neither righteous nor good in our own right.

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5: 21

Even when we follow His commandments, we are not following our will but His, and therefore whatever good deed we end up doing becomes His since it was set in motion by His law.

“When you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have done only that which was our duty to do.'” Luke 17:10

So, to set Job the Aramean straight, in addition to handing him over to Satan, God sent a Buzite fellow, a non-Hebrew like Job, purposely named Elihu or “my God is He” – shade of Jesus – to point out Job’s flaw to him.

“Elihu’s wrath aroused because Job justified himself rather than God…” Job 32: 2

Elihu realized there was more than a hint of vanity in Job’s life.

“In this you are not righteous… for God is greater than man.” Job 33:12

Prosperity and success had caused Job to become prideful and self-righteous.

“He was the greatest of all the men of the east.” Job 1: 3

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16: 18

Job had become so full of himself that he thought he was on par with God, a Prince who could approach the Almighty on an equal footing.

“Behold, here is my signature; Let the Almighty answer me! And the indictment which my adversary has written, Surely I would carry it on my shoulder, I would bind it to myself like a crown. I would declare to Him the number of my steps; Like a prince I would approach Him.” Job 31: 35-37

He injected the poison of his conceit and self-righteousness in what was his true righteousness, the righteousness of God.

God appears to Job

God appears to Job

But when Jehovah appeared to him, the Glory and Holiness of the Almighty made Job realize how small, insignificant, and wretched he really was.

“My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you. Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” Job 45: 5,6

As sin takes control of us, it spoils the righteousness we have been handed. It’s the fly in the ointment, the leaven in the lump.

“Dead flies putrefy the perfumer’s ointment…” Ecclesiastes 10: 1

“A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” Galatians 5: 9

Even the Apostle Paul experienced the handing over. But in Paul’s case it was a preemptive strike.

“In order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.” 2 Corinthians 12: 7

That is why Paul was so strict with Christians of his time. He knew sin needed to be dealt with. And many times the only way to deal with it is for the sinner to be handed over to the dark forces.

“I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” 1 Corinthians 5:5

When our flesh is destroyed, our sinful nature is henceforth dashed to pieces like pottery; and God’s iron scepter is made evident in our lives as he keeps us in line, away from the malicious influence of life’s alluring but deadly valley of sin.

“You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Psalm 2:9

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

THE MARK OF PERFECTION

When we sin, we basically tell God He’s not our Father.

Consequently, our sinful actions identify us as belonging to a different household, that of the dark forces. So, like the father of the prodigal son, God says, “You want it, you got it.”

Job and his wife

“Why don’t you curse God and die?” Job 2:9 Job’s wife curses him

The handing over may seem harsh, but it is to help us get rid of sin, thus making us perfect.

“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5: 48

To be perfect is to rule over sin.

“You must rule over sin.” Genesis 4:7

And how do we rule over it?

1) Constantly judge ourselves and recognize our wrongdoings.

“But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged by God in this way.” 1 Corinthians 11: 31

2) Wholeheartedly repent to God and other offended parties (not to a “catholic priest”). The prodigal son sinned against God and against his father, so he repented accordingly.

“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'” Luke 15: 21

3) Follow God’s commandments.

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.” John 14: 21

Unfortunately, sin is quite insidious. It is a disease that’s always at the door, always at the ready to entrap.

“But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4: 7

It sometimes hides itself so deep within our hearts that, like Job, we don’t even realize we’re neck-deep in it.

“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Jeremiah 17: 9

So God many times resorts to the handing over in order to remove it.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” James 1: 2-3

The handing over is a mark of God’s love. He orchestrates it to help those who will learn from it turn their lives around for His glory.

“Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?” Hebrews 12: 7

CONCLUSION

Bad things don’t happen to good people.

“There is no one righteous, not even one.” Romans 3: 10

Bad things happen to sinners, all of us. But in their wake, if we truly repent, we let go of our unrighteousness or self-righteousness and become the righteousness of God.

“But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? May it never be!” Romans 3: 5,6

Once we learn our lesson, and when we’re ready for it, God hands us the pot at the end of the rainbow, containing only the blessings we can handle.

“Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning.” Job 42: 12

It would do us no good for God to bestow upon us all the blessings in the world and in the process lose our soul.

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” Matthew 16: 26


ADDENDUM: PREEMPTIVE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

The following questions will surely pop up.

1. Does this mean when someone is killed during an accident or a catastrophe that person was beyond redemption?

The answer is Yes and No.

“I will cut off from you the righteous and the wicked…” Ezekiel 21: 4

Yes, it could be. And No, it could also be this:

“No one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.” Isaiah 57: 1

When the righteous are taken away in such a fashion, it simply means that God was done with them, that their mission was accomplished, and that God no longer wanted them to endure the evil in this world. But in the case of Job’s children, it is quite doubtful that they were righteous.

So how can one know which is which?

No one can, except God. He purposely made it thus so there would be no formula to figure Him out.

“God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.” Ecclesiastes 7:14

It’s one of the reasons those who preach church tithing are sinning, because what they’re saying is that tithing is the guaranteed formula to be financially blessed by God. In the end, even Job wasn’t blessed because he tithed. He didn’t tithe. He was blessed because God chose to bless him. And today God acts no differently, especially as the New Covenant changes everything. See Ministry Money and the Tithe Lie.

Even when we’re doing all that God wants us to do, there’s no telling what will transpire in our lives.

“For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” 1 Peter 3:17

True faith is the understanding that God does whatever He wants, whenever He wants, however He wants.

“I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” Romans 9: 15

2. Why does the bible mention the righteous if none is righteous?

When God mentions the righteous, it is to be grasped as those who understand that their righteousness is of God and not of themselves.

Even in Job’s case God knew He could turn Job around, and that in the end he would become the righteousness of God. That’s why He told Satan not to take his life.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.” Job 2: 6

3. Who created the Devil and why does God use him?

God created the Devil and his demons. God uses them to bring about His ultimate plan and purpose, which is to challenge man’s free will and put through the fire unbelievers, atheists, and Christians alike in order to test their zeal for either the truth of God and Jesus whom He sent or the lies of the evil one and his minions.

4. Doesn’t God violate His own commandment of Thou Shall Not Kill?

What kind of a stupid question is that? 🙂

That commandment is for us who are the Thou or YOU. He didn’t say You and I shall not kill. He said “YOU shall not kill.” Period. Many have a bad habit of either taking bible verses out of context or adding to God’s word.

From the very beginning God told us we would die if we ate of the forbidden fruit. See The Consequences of Sin.

“…for when you eat from it you will certainly die…” Genesis 2: 17

Man saw fit to disobey and chose death. No need to spin it otherwise. And whether we die of old age or in an accident or by any other means before old age is irrelevant. Death is death.

The “inconvenient” means and timing of our demise don’t make death any less a result of our wrongful choice. So don’t be like Job and say God wronged you by not following the Thou Shall NOT Kill command.

We will all die or be killed someday, it’s just a matter of time. Our death – whether we see it as God “killing” us or not, same difference – and its timing thereof are dictated by the Almighty who uses whatever method and schedule He sees fit to bring about our demise, a consequence of our sinful nature.

We were never given any assurance that we would live beyond the instant we emerged out of our mothers’ wombs. From the moment we came into the world, a death appointment has been scheduled. So every day is a gift. Count your blessings.

“For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.” Philippians 2: 13

Some point to the various killings in the Old Testament to somehow “prove” that God always had a blood lust, and that He often commanded the ancient Hebrews to kill in wars.

What they don’t understand is that the Hebrews then were an extension of God’s army on earth. God used them to remove the wicked from the face of the earth. So when they killed on God’s order in specific and directed circumstances – which cannot be transferred to today’s circumstances –  it was God’s doing, not theirs.

“The LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you…” Deuteronomy 20:4

But, as the prophet Zechariah prophesied, with the advent of Christ everything would change.

” ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6

Now it’s no longer by the might of the sword nor by the power of one’s army, but by the Spirit of Christ that things truly change for the better.

“The wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:20

Ever since Jesus’s birth, death, and resurrection the world has not been the same.

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5: 17

Those who really know God understand how He operated then and how He operates now, just the way Jesus understood and did not fear those who could kill the body.

“Pilate said to Him, ‘You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?’ Jesus answered, ‘You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above.’ ” John 19: 10-11

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10: 28

The only ones who utter such nonsense about the 6th commandment are those who hate God and fail to see that physical death is nothing compared to the eternal death of the soul in hell.

Such a harmful disposition prompts them to spit on the Father’s authority to do as He purposes, and to ignore Jesus’s sacrifice which was offered for the renewal of the world through peace and for the salvation of man’s soul through the New Covenant in His blood.

“But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8: 36

Consequently, remember this:

“Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” Ecclesiastes 12: 13

Speaking In Tongues

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels…” 1 Corinthians 13:1

There’s quite a polemic within the body of Christ regarding the gift of speaking in tongues.

VARIOUS TONGUES: OF MEN AND OF ANGELS

Biblically speaking, to speak or pray in tongues is to speak or pray in a celestial language. When said language or tongue is being spoken, each endowed individual strikes a unique cadence of sound and heavenly words – hence tongues, plural.

On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues” Acts 19: 4-7

Day of PentecostHowever, at the first Pentecost, speaking in tongues took on a different aspect as well.

Judahite Hebrews, who were born and lived abroad, like the Apostle Paul who was born in Tarsus, Cilicia, were visiting Jerusalem for the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of Weeks, and heard the disciples speak in their various native dialects.

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Judahites from every nation under heaven... Every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all this which speak Galileans? ” Acts 2: 5 -7

The speaking of foreign languages, as prompted at that time by the Holy Spirit, was for the benefit of these men who were part of the Hebrew House of Ancient Israel.

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2: 36

It was also for the benefit of spreading the Gospel worldwide, especially as many foreigners from around the world constantly traveled to Jerusalem, a major trade center at the time.

“And how hear we every man in our own dialect wherein we were born? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and the parts of Lybia, about Cyrene, strangers of Rome, Judahites and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, We do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.Acts 2: 8-12

“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.” Acts 8:4

The Holy Spirit saw the need at that particular junction to supernaturally prompt many of the disciples to speak in various foreign dialects.

The bestowal of said gift (i.e., to speak in a foreign dialect) still occurs today, albeit not supernaturally like at the first Pentecost but as a talent or an aptitude, since many individuals all over the world are now fluent in more than one language. It thus recalibrates the event at the Tower of Babel where God confounded man’s one universal language into various dialects, and caused them not to understand each other.

“Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 11: 7

Man’s hope at the Tower of Babel was to reach Heaven (Genesis 11:4). Now Heaven reaches down to man in the person of Jesus, using not only the aforementioned gift but a new universal language as well, a heavenly tongue, which itself reaches to the once unreachable Heaven, even unto God Himself.

Christ - el Greco“For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God…” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

However, unlike the supernatural outpouring of common languages at the First Pentecost, the heavenly tongue has kept its supernatural endowment, as it is God’s umbilical cord whereby He supplies His children with divine mysteries.

“…one who speaks in a tongue… utters mysteries in the spirit.” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

As such it is mostly for the benefit of oneself in prayer.

“One who speaks in tongues edifies himself…” 1 Corinthians 14:4

“Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groans which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26

Praying in tongues is something many Christians don’t do for whatever reason, whether out of traditional bias, ignorance, or unbelief. However, it’s one of many spiritual tools or gifts available in the Christian arsenal – just like God created many kinds of fruits and vegetables for all those with different tastes and gustoes.

“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another mighty works, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of languages, and to still another the interpretation of languages. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.” 1 Corinthians 12: 7-11

But the day one desires the gift of speaking in heavenly tongues, which increases wisdom in the things above, all one has to do is ask God who gives to all liberally.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all [men] liberally, and without reproach; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

When one speaks in a heavenly tongue, something is birthed deep inside the spirit man and one is edified.

“For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the spirit.” 1 Corinthians 14: 2

Yet, when we congregate it is better to prophesy in a common language and not speak in tongues.

“But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself, but he that prophesieth edifieth the assembly.” 1 Corinthians 14: 4

The one who prophesies in a common language edifies the body of Christ. But that doesn’t mean he is forbidden to pray in tongues when he’s on his own.

“So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.” 1 Corinthians 14: 39

“I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you.” 1 Corinthians 14: 18

In a congregational setting speaking in heavenly tongues should only occur with the presence of a gifted someone who can interpret.

“The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the assembly may be built up.” 1 Corinthians 14: 5

Otherwise, it’d be a waste of the congregants’ time if someone is edifying himself at the expense of others who can’t be edified at that moment. See Church Services ARE NOT Biblical.

“Nevertheless, in the assembly I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.” 1 Corinthians 14: 19

CONCLUSION

Many harbor a bias towards speaking in tongues, and fight tooth and nail not to speak it.

They spin the fact that when one speaks to God in a tongue, one actually speaks in one’s native dialect, and therefore others who don’t speak said dialect do not understand what is uttered. But that’s not true. If one speaks one’s own dialect, one’s mind is fruitful, but if one prays in a heavenly tongue, one’s mind is not, but the spirit man is.

David Praying in the Night“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful.” 1 Corinthians 14: 14

Besides, isn’t it silly to babble in one’s native dialect in a congregation where no one else speaks that language?

And if one suddenly starts speaking in a foreign dialect that he doesn’t understand, prompted by the Holy Spirit like at the first Pentecost, how does he edify himself? He doesn’t. He edifies others who speak that language. But if he speaks in God’s heavenly tongue, he is edified by God Himself as “he utters mysteries in the spirit .

Speaking in tongues, as Christians came to describe it since its advent at Pentecost, is different in scope than speaking in common dialects or languages. It is of angels, while the other is of men. It edifies oneself, while its counterpart edifies others.

“The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the assembly.” 1 Corinthians 14:4

To speak in a heavenly tongue is God-given to build us up individually. As with any gift anyone can choose to accept or reject it.

But why would anyone reject a gift from God?

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1: 17
