Ben Ariel not arrested...

Ben Ariel was not arrested on political charges...

Due to persistent false rumors that I, David Ben-Ariel, was involved in a plot to blow up the mosques in Jerusalem, even by lying religious leaders like Gerald Flurry of the Philadelphia Church of God (not just enemies of the plain truth of the Bible), I present here the State Department letter from former American Consul General in Jerusalem, Edward G. Abington, Jr. to Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. (Jr.'s hostility to the Temple Mount Faithful is explained in Why Edward Abington, Jr. Must Be Investigated! and his dubious character and conflict of interests in Something smells bad).

Jeremiah 10

Jeremiah 10
1 Hear the word which the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel.
2 Thus says the LORD:

Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;
Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,
For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the peoples are futile;
For one cuts a tree from the forest,
The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.
4 They decorate it with silver and gold;
They fasten it with nails and hammers
So that it will not topple.
5 They are upright, like a palm tree,
And they cannot speak;
They must be carried,
Because they cannot go by themselves.
Do not be afraid of them,
For they cannot do evil,
Nor can they do any good.”
6 Inasmuch as there is none like You, O LORD
(You are great, and Your name is great in might),
7 Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?
For this is Your rightful due.
For among all the wise men of the nations,
And in all their kingdoms,
There is none like You.
8 But they are altogether dull-hearted and foolish;
A wooden idol is a worthless doctrine.
9 Silver is beaten into plates;
It is brought from Tarshish,
And gold from Uphaz,
The work of the craftsman
And of the hands of the metalsmith;
Blue and purple are their clothing;
They are all the work of skillful men.
10 But the LORD is the true God;
He is the living God and the everlasting King.
At His wrath the earth will tremble,
And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.

Jeremiah 10 condemns idolatry, both in the letter and in the spirit, whether a physical idol or an idolatrous tradition based upon HEATHEN CUSTOMS like the "Christmas tree" that history clearly exposes as pagan in origin. Those who adorn their Christmas trees and remain in denial about its pagan origin, who play deaf, dumb and blind to the facts, who attempt to dismiss or downplay how it's a heathen custom, are living a lie and shamefully reject the clear commandments of God that speak against such spiritual adultery, mixing and matching pagan error with biblical truth, and will suffer the consequences for being so dishonest and deceitful.

Pagan holidays like Christmas and pagan customs like Christmas trees are both abominations to God. True Christians shun both, we avoid them like the plague, because we love God more than idolatrous traditions of apostate men!

Coveting pork is a sin

Re: Argentine president: Eat pork, spice your sex life

#6. To: beyond the sea (#0)

Argentines are among the world's biggest consumers of red meat, and most people here stubbornly reject the idea of replacing beef with chicken, pork or other meats. Despite Argentina lying along rich South Atlantic fisheries, seafood is rarely seen on dinner tables.

I didn't realize how much beef Argentina produces until I lived in Israel and worked as a volunteer for various kibbutzim (see God-given love for the Jews) in the kitchen (among elsewhere) and saw it stamped on the boxes. Being American, I thought most beef was from our beloved country. Maybe it is, haven't really checked it out.

Our Great Creator God blesses beef, chicken and certain seafood, so Bible-believing Christians and Jews should stubbornly reject any promotion of pork or other unclean foods that definitely aren't good for you, despite what serpents pimp.

Jesus Upheld the Biblical Dietary Laws
Unclean traditional Christianity has misled many with their lack of understanding of the Bible as a whole. They often take Scriptures out of context and totally twist their meanings, like they do when it comes to abusing Matthew 15 and slaughtering it to teach we can now eat anything.

Unclean Christianity vs. Peter's Vision
Unclean traditional Christianity teaches the religious lie that Jesus "did away with" the dietary laws, sinning against both God and man (1 John 2:4; Matt 5:17-20).

Is All Animal Flesh Good Food?
Were all animals made clean? What about the unclean animals shown to Peter in a vision? Here is a straightforward Bible answer, giving the New Testament teaching. This subject is important to your health and well-being!

Re: Women pastors and interracial dating/marriage remains sins!

Proverbs 9:13
13 A foolish woman is clamorous; She is simple, and knows nothing.

Why not go educate yourself to what a truly holy woman should live like and strive to be rather than be such a busybody with all your idle chatter and plagiarism? You don't have to remain proud and stubborn in your idolatry and iniquity. You can repent of rejecting the Word of the Lord for your religious lies, and GET SOBER so you stop babbling your traditional nonsense like other Christian reprobates, Catholics and Protestants, drunks and whores.

Counterfeit Christianity has swallowed paganism hook, line and sinker!

Re: Herbert W. Armstrong's last letter to the Brethren & Co-Workers

#7. To: Lord Vader (#5)

Herbert W. Armstrong (and Garner Ted Armstrong)

Messrs. Herbert W. and Garner Ted Armstrong dared to share the plain truth of the Bible - whether about the baptized paganism of Christmas or Easter that counterfeit Christianity has swallowed hook, line and sinker - as well as proclaiming the GOOD NEWS of the WORLD TOMORROW: the KINGDOM OF GOD. Those who are honest recognize what they taught is true and don't get hung up on whether others (including C. H. Spurgeon) teach some aspects of these historical truths too.

The United States of Sodom?

Re:  Does the United States Appear in Bible Prophecy?

#106. To: SPQR (#81)

Genesis 13:13
But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Yes, the sins of Sodom are prevalent in these United States of America, these prophesied Lands of the Covenant (Artzot Habrit in Hebrew), this biblical inheritance of Manasseh the son of Joseph.

Christian Reprobates?

Why were Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed?

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.

The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites
Is God a racist? Does He discriminate? Did Jesus hate Gentiles? Was Paul prejudiced? Are Israelites and Jews superior to other peoples? Is God's favorite color white?

The Plain Truth about the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel
In order to warn Israel about the many prophecies that preview our coming captivity (due to our idolatry and immorality), it was first necessary for God to restore our identity. God has now restored our identity, He's again warning our nations, and it's up to us what will happen next.

FARMINGTON HILLS, Michigan - In the last hour of 2009's last day reached its goal of four million Web site visitors for the year. Web site also experienced an increase in traffic for the year, attracting 466,939 total visitors who viewed its Web pages two million times.

"In early December it became clear that the last few days of the month would determine whether or not reached its yearly target. To increase visitor traffic the site moved up its planned 2010 launch of its brand new Roman Empire section ( to mid-December. As the end of the month approached it all came down to how many visitors the site could draw on December 31st. To reach its goal the site had to perform 50% better than it did for the same day in 2008. I wasn't optimistic this large an increase would occur."

"However, as the last day of 2009 progressed, it looked more and more likely the site had a real chance of achieving its goal for the year. When the final statistics came in they showed God, in the very last hour of 2009, gave the site the traffic it needed to finish the year with 4,000,369 visitors!" stated Webmaster Alan Ruth.

Alan also stated 2010's goal of five (5) million actual visitors is off to a fantastic start. Stats for the first half of January project will serve 400,000+ monthly visitors and, for the first time ever, have its Web pages requested one million times in a single month...

Black Day in America

Black Day in America: Obama Wins, America Loses

What nation in its right mind, after 9/11, after Osama (at least his collaboration with the powers that be on it), after our alleged war on terrorism, would elect a questionable and dark character who is pro-Muslim, raised during his influential years in Muslim countries, has attended a hateful Afro-racist congregation that preaches anti-American and anti-white sermons typical of Black Liberation Theology, is endorsed by avowed Black racists and rabid Nazi Muslims, etc. would let Barack Hussein Obama even entertain the notion of running for president for a second? It certainly appears America is under a curse and those who treacherously voted for that fraud and foreigner are helping to make Marxist Jeremiah Wright’s wish come true that God damn America. Shame!

Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and others all represent the curse of reverse discrimination, the tail wagging the dog, the animals running the farm, the serious consequences for White Israelite disobedience to God (Deuteronomy 28:43).

We've failed to learn from history and have an illegitimate president elect; we've been deaf, dumb and blind to the two witnesses of raped Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and besieged South Africa (that testify against our madness); and we've rejected common sense. Now we'll have hell to pay for it! God save us all!

"I will say, then, that I AM NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races---that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and black races which will ever FORBID the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race."

Pathans and British-Israelites

Taliban of Jewish Descent? Experts are Checking
by Hillel Fendel

( Experts at the National Institute of Immunohaematology in Mumbai, India believe a large group of Taliban Muslims might be descended of the lost Ten Tribes of Israel – and an Israeli rabbinical expert agrees.

Israel’s government is partially funding a genetic study to establish if there is any proof of the link, bringing an Indian expert in DNA profiling and population genetics to the Technion in Haifa. The expert, Shahnaz Ali, will be supervised by Israeli genetic research expert Prof. Karl Skorecki.

Rabbi Eliyahu Avichayil, who has dedicated his life to seeking out descendants of the Ten Tribes and bringing them to Israel, says he does not need or trust genetic testing for this purpose: “Rashi’s explanation to Jeremiah 31, 20 implies that the way to identify the Ten Lost Tribes will be via the Jewish customs that they maintain – and in this case, there are many of them.”

Click here to continue

How can they have "Jewish customs" if they've lost their identity? The "Lost Ten Tribes of Israel" lost their identity because they lost the seventh day Sabbath and festivals and dietary laws. Those who maintain any semblance of "Jewish customs" are more likely either descendants of Jews or converts to Judaism - not Israelites.

Joseph isn't Jewish!
Not All Twelve Tribes of Israel are Jewish?

The birthmarks of fulfilled biblical prophecies include, as the Sabbath-keeping Church of God groups* and the Jerusalem-based Brit Am Israel organization teaches:

According to the Bible ten out of the twelve tribes of Israel split away (1 Kings 12:19), formed their own kingdom of "Israel" (1 Kings 12:20) and were exiled by the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:18). They forget their identity (Hosea 1:9, 7:8; Isaiah 49:21) and became the Lost Ten Tribes. In the future they will re-unite with the Jews (Ezekiel 37; Isaiah 11:13; Jeremiah 3:18) of "Judah", but until then they have a role of their own to fulfill. They were destined to be situated at the continental extremities of the earth such as North America, the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa (Deuteronomy 33:13; Isaiah 24:16, 26:15, 41:8-9, 49:6), to be the richest (Genesis 27:28, 49:25; Deuteronomy 33:13-16; Hosea 2:8), and most powerful (Numbers 24:8-7; Micah 5:7-9) nations on earth and to control major international strategic bases (Genesis 22:16-17, 24:60). All of these points together with numerous others show that descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes can only be found amongst Western Nations, especially the English-speaking ones.

There are exceptions to the rule. The Pathans are believed to be numbered among the Israelites in the East as the British-Israelites are located in the West, Israel in the Isles.

Gerald Flurry is an egomaniac?

Gerald Flurry is an egomaniac and false prophet!

Re: Was Peter the Chief Apostle?
Who was the human leader of the early New Testament Church? Was it one man, or a committee? Does the Bible tell us? By Fred Dattolo


Yes, Peter was the most outspoken, dominant and chief apostle under the Apostle Christ to Jews (Galatians 2:7-8). However, it's clear God worked through all the apostles doing miracles (not just Peter), and brethren supported the apostles (not just Peter), and it was the apostles' doctrine (not Peter's). Regardless, that was then, this is now.

There is no line of succession from Peter to Gerald. Peter also wasn't an egomaniac and false prophet like Gerald Flurry has revealed himself to be (who basically proclaims himself God in the Temple). Don't be so blind and gullible! We're to take all the scriptures on any given subject and see the Big Picture.

Ideally, the Church of God groups would work together and respect each others' ministry, as Paul and Peter did (and in that holy spirit I've shared articles from the PCG, the LCG and UCG all over the Internet even though shamefully none of them has even so much as given an honorable mention to Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall), and I'm on record for initially supporting Gerald Flurry as the leader in these last days of civilization as we know it:
Whether we like it or not, God, in His infinite wisdom, chose Gerald Flurry to reveal to God's Church what was going on -- and thereby allow us to show our true colors by how we responded to Malachi's Message. (That doesn't mean Mr. Flurry is infallible or that he doesn't need to continually apply the principles of Malachi's Message to himself and organization, as we all do as explained in my article Worldwide All Over Again?). - Philadelphia Church of God Leads the Laodicean Era (Part 1)
I no longer support Gerald Flurry because he has clearly become worse than Diotrephes!
I wrote something to the church; but Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them, does not accept what we say. For this reason, if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words; and not satisfied with this, he himself does not receive the brethren, either, and he forbids those who desire to do so and puts them out of the church. Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God. (3 John 1:9-11)
It appears Satan was feeding Diotrephes' ego (Diotrephes means "fed by Jupiter"). Diotrephes demanded brethren follow him and him alone. John wrote of Diotrephes' rejection of "we" and "us" - he didn't write about his rejection of Peter. John didn't agree that they should just blindly follow "God's man" or whatever Diotrephes had set himself up as, but to imitate what is good. Diotrephes was clearly evil. Gerald Flurry is evil for magnifying himself (2 Corinthians 4:5).

Today, as prophesied, the brethren are scattered in different groups and organizations. Even as the early Church of God headquarters in Jerusalem was history just before their Great Tribulation, the destruction of the Temple and dispersion of the Jews, the Judean Church of God members fleeing to Pella (while the Church of God congregations continued to function in Asia Minor as the apostles carried on their God-given missions to the scattered tribes of Israel), the organized Work of God under Herbert W. Armstrong (that was centered in Pasadena, California) is history.

Gerald Flurry had a God-given opportunity to serve the brethren and has failed, even though God has given him some victories like he did for Ahab for His Overall Purpose and can work though anybody or anything (Philippians 1:15) - including a pagan Gentile sorcerer and a High Priest and can even raise up rocks to do His Work if He chooses to.

Remember salvation is not a group affair, contrary to those who brainwash some to believe such a doctrine of demons. We're to maintain a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ: work out your own salvation with fearfulness and trembling. We're to obey God rather than men who often set themselves up as God! Yet too many are still looking to men or organizations to save them:

1 Corinthians 1:12-14
12 Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

Even as the apostles informed the Gentiles if they followed certain basic requirements, they did well, so too today, regardless of which group or organization (if any) they're associated with, the brethren do well to remember the Sabbath and holy days, dietary laws, and basic doctrines.

We await the appearance of the Two Witnesses who will restore, by their presence, the Church of God headquarters to Jerusalem.

A few quotes from it in italics and my response:

My name was legally changed from David Hoover to David Ben-Ariel twenty one years ago, for religious reasons, as related within my articles God-given Names and From Toledo to Jerusalem.

Now which is it? Armstrongist or Armstrongite? Those who hate the plain truth of the Bible that Herbert Armstrong faithfully taught are confused as to what they would brand us who agree with the Word of God over the idolatrous traditions of Catholics and Protestants, apostate Christians, Christian reprobates.

A hard-line Armstrongist? I've also been called a hard-core Zionist (since I'm a Christian-Zionist) and racist of the week since I believe racism is not the unpardonable sin! Life goes on.

Gerald Flurry didn't appreciate my brief appearance on the Fox 25 Special Report on Philadelphia Church of God

Gerald Flurry's Outrageous Attack Against David Ben-Ariel

Hoover's fanaticism

It's rather fanatic to continue to call somebody by their former name rather than by their legal name, isn't it? Hoover is a great name but my surname is Ben-Ariel. It's also evident that my God-given determination and zeal isn't appreciated by those who lack such spiritual qualities. Regardless, my agenda is to serve the Great God of Israel, sharing the plain truth of His Bible and announce His soon coming Kingdom of God-Beings to rule on Earth and save all mankind from extinction. This clarity of mind, vision and purpose also includes serving as an emissary of Joseph (revealing the Israelite origins of the West). This God-given message must reach those high and low, rich and poor, regardless of race or religion.

Despite being the most prolific COG blogger by a country mile, Hoover's influence appears to be minimal - in fact almost non-existent - within the various factions of COGdom.

God knows whatever influence I have now or later, as a little known blogger, as an e-vangelist, is irrelevant to my calling and responsibility to get the Word out (how folks respond is their responsibility, not mine), but what I do know is this:

‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts (Zechariah 4:6).

Armstrong's shattered empire
Today, as prophesied, the brethren are scattered in different groups and organizations. Even as the early Church of God headquarters in Jerusalem was history just before their Great Tribulation, the destruction of the Temple and dispersion of the Jews, the Judean Church of God members fleeing to Pella (while the Church of God congregations continued to function in Asia Minor as the apostles carried on their God-given missions to the scattered tribes of Israel), the organized Work of God under Herbert W. Armstrong (that was centered in Pasadena, California) is history.- Gerald Flurry is an egomaniac and false prophet!
We await the appearance of the Two Witnesses who will restore, by their presence, the Church of God headquarters to Jerusalem.

Any church you can "join" is NOT God's Church

Any church you can "join" is NOT God's Church
The Plain Truth
April, 1968

There are so many denominations, how does one recognize the
Church Jesus founded?
B. E., Canada

    The Greek word "ecclesia" translated "Church" in English means "the called-out ones"! 

     On the other hand, in the WORLD the very first great event Jesus foretold would be a deceptive COUNTERFEIT Christianity.

     "Take heed," said Jesus, "that no man deceive you. For many shall come IN MY NAME, SAYING I AM CHRIST; and shall deceive many!" (Mat. 24:4-5.)

     Notice carefully! These deceivers would come in Christ's name, saying Jesus IS the Christ. They would be calling themselves "Christian," but would in fact be the devil's representatives. It was NOT THE FEW who were to be deceived by them -- but THE MANY! It was the FEW who were to become TRUE Christians! (Mat. 7:13-14.)

     That isn't what the world believes, is it? Probably that isn't what you have always heard, and come to assume.

     But it is WHAT JESUS CHRIST SAID! How deceived this world has become!

     Yes, MANY would come in Jesus' name, proclaiming that Jesus IS the Christ -- preaching about Christ to the world -- yet, actually DECEIVING THE WORLD! (Mat. 24:5.)

     Simply by preaching ABOUT the PERSON of Christ -- extolling is virtues, worshipping Him, yet DENYING HIS MESSAGE -- the GOSPEL OF HIS KINGDOM!

     What a CLEVER counterfeit! And most of those preaching in Christ's name are SINCERE -- sincerely WRONG, themselves DECEIVED!

     It is SATAN who has deceived them! Satan has deceived the WHOLE WORLD!! (Rev. 12:9) He is the author of this confusion (I Cor. 14:33).

     It is SATAN who has made himself the god of this world (II Cor. 4:4) -- and is thus worshipped as though he were God! This world DOESN'T KNOW THE TRUE GOD, strange as that may seem. This world believes that if one just "accepts Christ" -- just "makes a decision for Christ" -- just "worships Christ" -- that is all that is necessary for salvation!

     That's what MANY preach today! But what did JESUS CHRIST teach? Did He say it was possible to WORSHIP Him, and STILL BE UNSAVED? 

     Listen to His words: "In VAIN do they WORSHIP ME," said Christ, "teaching for doctrines the commandments of men ... making the word of God of none effect through your tradition" (Mark 7:7, 13).

     Hard to believe, isn't it? You've probably been so drugged, so poisoned, so deceived, by this world's deceptions -- SATAN'S COUNTERFEITS -- that even the words of Christ are difficult to believe! Well, GOD HELP YOU TO BELIEVE CHRIST! It is one thing to believe ON Christ -- that is, on His person. It is something altogether different to BELIEVE CHRIST -- to BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS!

     Very few really understand what the true Church is. 

     Jesus purchased THE TRUE CHURCH by shedding His blood for it (Acts 20:28). The TRUE Church is not some politically organized denomination which one JOINS or becomes a member, of in order to be "saved." Jesus did not die for some one religious denomination or another -- called a church. 

     Joining a local church congregation does not put you into God's true Church! Any church you can "join" is NOT God's Church!

     You CAN'T JOIN the true Church; only God can PUT YOU INTO IT BY HIS SPIRIT (I Cor. 12:13). God alone can make you a member of His Church -- if you surrender your life to Him.

     God will give that Spirit only to those who are willing to "OBEY HIM"! (Acts 5:32.)

     When YOU receive God's Spirit -- which is the spirit of a sound, sane mind (II Tim. 1:6-7), you become at that moment a newly begotten member of the body of Christ -- which is the true Church of God!

     The receiving of God's Spirit and the MIND OF CHRIST (Phil. 2:5) upon REPENTANCE and BAPTISM PUTS YOU INTO, baptizes you into God's TRUE Church!

     "For by ONE SPIRIT are we all baptized into ONE BODY to (I Cor. 12:13).

     YOU can be part of God's true Church by earnestly repenting of your sins -- disobedience to GOD'S LAWS -- by asking God to cover your sins through the blood of Jesus Christ, by calling on God's true servants to baptize you, and by claiming God's promise of the gift of His Holy Spirit. In that way, and that way ONLY, does anyone enter into the true Church.

     Church attendance is not the most important thing! Church attendance does not, by itself, mean CHURCH MEMBERSHIP in God's sight! Some people view "church going" as an end in itself. But it most definitely IS NOT.

     God expressly forbids His people ever to join in with the worship of counterfeit church bodies -- no matter how "close" to the truth they might seem! Only the genuine worship of God with His TRUE Church is acceptable to Him!

     You need to thoroughly EXAMINE YOURSELF. You NEED TO BE SURE!

White Israelite by race and Christian-Zionist by grace

Re: Hebrew midwives

#1.  David, I have noticed that instead of writing God, you instead use G-d. Do you consider yourself to be a Jew or a Christian?

Yitzchak Reuven is the author of the article and utilized that traditional Jewish practice. On occasion, if I'm writing specifically to a Jewish audience, I've become "all things to all men" (as the New Testament teaches) and done the same.

I am a white Israelite by race and a Christian-Zionist by God's grace.

German-American Israelites?
The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites

It's terrible that traditional Christianity, apostate Christians, pimp their baptized paganism, their replacement theology of Sunday for Sabbath and whitewashed pagan holidays for the biblical festivals, and shamefully misrepresent God, Yahshua and Christianity to Jews, Israelites and Gentiles. Thankfully, that will soon be history when all learn about the God of Jacob.

Nazi Muslims infamous for lies

Re: Reports: Iraq De-Judaizing Ezekiel's Tomb (will turn it into a mosque)

Nazi Muslims have a historical tendency to engage in such deception, infamous for their proclivity to lie, especially upon the Temple Mount in Jerusalem - Judaism's holiest site (which you wouldn't know since Jews and Israelis have woefully neglected the Temple Mount, enabling the Islamization of it, although thankfully that's beginning to change).

I was unjustly deported from Israel for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Arab occupation in an article published in Jerusalem and read throughout Israel and now the world. How well I remember! (From Toledo to Jerusalem and Israel's Unjust Deportation of David Ben-Ariel describe my ordeal in detail).

The Curse of Jimmy Carter

Re: Drop Dead Jimmy Carter?

I agree with Mr. Graulich's sentiments, his rebuke of Jimmy Carter, and his rejection of a basically worthless apology, but repeating the lie that Jimmy Carter is a Christian is inexcusable. Only non-Christian Christians could accept him as one, and others who do are woefully ignorant of biblical Christianity. The Christian faith also doesn't demand "all Jews should and actually will forgive him." The Christian faith demands we overcome daily, that we express heartfelt repentance, in attitude and in actions, in words and in works, and whether or not folks choose to accept apologies from truly repentant folk is irrelevant. In God's eyes, they are forgiven.

As for the United States and Israel being the two "most moral nations in modernity," being merciful to a fault (must be in our blood - 1 Kings 20:31), often showing the "mercy of fools,"  I'm reminded of Meir Kahane's scathing condemnation of such a self-righteous "purity of arms" that we would do well to remember (Malachi 4:4).

I remember The Plain Truth magazine's frequent references to Carter and his unclean ilk as symptomatic of the national curse and malaise that was foretold, the breaking of the pride of our power - evident in both Israel and Judah today.

Jewish Zionists learning about Muslim Zionists from Christian Zionists

Cracking the Qur'an Code

Section Five

Salah Choudhury

Cracking the Qur’an Code


I first learned about Bangladesh Muslim human rights and pro-Israel Zionist activist Salah Choudhury from David Ben-Ariel, a Christian Zionist

Jewish Zionists learning about Muslim Zionists from Christian Zionists might seem surprising, but today these contacts are growing. Jews and Israelis often believe that we stand alone in an increasingly hostile world. While it may be true that parts of the world grow increasingly and openly hostile, it is only a partial truth.

In these days of Ends and Beginnings others also come forward, such as Sheikh Palazzi, Salah Choudhury and David Ben-Ariel, to stand with the People of Israel in this Time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).

Jewish, Christian and Muslim Zionists share the belief that the outcome of the battle between those who stand with and those who stand against the God, Torah, Land and People of Israel has been foretold. We do not envy the fate of those who play on the losing team.

However, we each must make our own choices and take personal and national responsibility for those choices. The Qur'an says that as Pharaoh was drowning in the Red Sea, he repented and acknowledged that he had sinned against God by oppressing God's People Israel:

"We took the Children of Israel across the sea: Pharaoh and his hosts followed them in insolence and spite. At length, when overwhelmed with the flood, he said: 'I believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in: I am of those who submit (to God in Islam)'. (It was said to him): 'Ah now! But a little while before, wast thou in rebellion! And thou didst mischief (and violence)! This day shall We save thee in thy body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!'"
Qur'an, Sura Yunus ("Jonah"), 10:90-92

Hopefully, the players on the losing team will wake up to what they are doing, and turn back from marching against Jerusalem, before sharing Pharaoh's fate.

In this section we read about the courageous activities of Salah Choudhury in Bangladesh, and of his Jewish friend and colleague Dr. Richard Benkin in the United States.

We are proud to say that both Salah Choudhury and Dr. Benkin serve as R&B Islam-Israel Fellowship Council members.

Deceitful souls!

Re: Understanding Colossians 2

#3 To Don (#2)

you refuse to learn the truth

No, otherwise I would still be a Protestant. It is Roman Catholics and Protestants, stuck in the muck of Babylon, who refuse to let the plain truth set them free. I can see clearly now, having dealt with so many Christian reprobates, "Christians" in denial, it's due to their traditional dishonesty with the Word of God, themselves and others, preferring idolatrous traditions and traditional darkness to the light, condemning themselves. Such drunks and whores, deceitful souls, have been warned and are left without excuse.

Do you know who the Two Witnesses are?

Re: Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion)

I took particular notice of the last paragraph about the two witnesses who you say are soon to take the stand. There seem to be a lot of people who know about these two. I have recently seen a few people saying something similar. It's almost as if something is in the air. How did you find this information out?? Do you know who they are? Could you point to where I can contact them? - Paul Lambert

When you see two men in Jerusalem wearing sackcloth and performing all sorts of miracles, and yet are absolutely HATED by the world for what they're saying, you'll know they're the ones prophesied.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11. Who are these two prophets? What do they have to say? Why are they called the two witnesses? How will their message be proclaimed? And is there any special significance to the fact that they're headquartered in Jerusalem?

Two Witnesses to Testify in Jerusalem Against Europe
Two controversial figures, referred to in the Book of Revelation as two witnesses, two olive trees, two candlesticks and two prophets, will boldly declare GOD'S JUDGMENTS and proclaim the LORD'S CONTROVERSY (Micah 3:8; 6:1-2), delivering a BLISTERING MESSAGE and a SCORCHING CONDEMNATION -- just before NUCLEAR FIRE AND BRIMSTONE RAINS DOWN upon those who've rejected GOD'S ULTIMATUM (Isaiah 41:27; 30:27).

Will the Church of God Welcome the Two Witnesses?

The Work of God Must Go Forward!

The New Covenant: Does It Abolish God's Law?

From the publisher of The Good News magazine.


"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds" (Hebrews 10:16, New Revised Standard Version).

Does the New Covenant negate God's law and do away with any need to obey the Ten Commandments and other laws of God?

The belief that it does has long been a popular teaching in traditional Christianity. We'll thoroughly examine this question in this booklet.

Even more important, we'll address the real purpose of God's biblical covenants—more than one—and their vital role in the Creator's overall plan for mankind. It's highly important that we understand their true meaning.

How many people even know that the structure of the Bible is organized around a series of divine covenants—what we might call contracts or agreements—that reveal and describe the relationship God would like to have with every human being?

These covenants reveal God's promises. They also define the conditions that every person must meet to receive the blessings of those promises. God's covenants are the foundation of His divine plan to properly shape the way all people should think and behave.

God has a specific goal in mind. The final result of His plan is a divine family of sons and daughters who have developed the same righteous character that was evident in Jesus Christ when He was with mankind as a human being.

That character can be created only through an interactive process that takes place between each individual and God. It is a very personal process.

Why freedom of choice?

To make it possible for us to build that divine, holy and righteous character, God gives us freedom of choice. By giving us the liberty to make choices, He allows us to learn by our own experiences that we, with our limited abilities, cannot foresee all of the hurtful consequences that wrong choices produce. Only by relying on God's guidance will we learn how to avoid making bad choices.

Making wrong choices began with our very first human parents, Adam and Eve. They had to choose between two critical options.

They could allow God to fully guide their thinking and their way of life, or they could experiment and try to discern the best way to live by their own experiences.

They chose to learn by personal experience instead of fully putting their trust in God's instruction, guidance and help. All of mankind has followed that same path, reaping the same sad results.

God's covenants reveal His plan to reverse that dangerous pattern of harmful choices. In these covenants, He promises His divine help and blessing to those who turn to Him with their whole heart for the guidance and help they need.

Some of the blessings He gives for accepting His guidance and help are spiritual, offering us eternal benefits. Others are physical, designed to bless us in this temporary, physical life.

Why was the promise of a new heart so necessary?

God's latest and most important covenant revealed in the Bible is centered on His promise—His unwavering commitment—to create a new heart in those who unconditionally turn to Him for help.

Why is divine intervention essential in receiving that change of heart? It's really very simple. We were created incomplete!

God indeed made human beings with an amazing ability to think creatively—with an intellectual capability that far exceeds the creativity of any other physical creature. The unique talent He has given to us to design and produce what we imagine is patterned after His own astounding creative capacity (Genesis 1:27).

But there remains a missing dimension in our thinking, a dimension that needs to be added so we can properly control our thoughts and the actions they produce. The Bible reveals that God is committed to creating in us that additional ability.

He promises to give us the knowledge, understanding and the power to rightly manage how we think, feel and behave—if we choose, willingly and sincerely, to give Him our full cooperation. We desperately need that added ability! The sad record of human history shows that we cannot consistently make right choices or maintain right attitudes without God's divine help.

Instead, each of us naturally weaves his own web of thoughts and patterns of behavior into a conflicting mixture of good and evil. Not everything we think and do is wrong. But neither is it always right. Like Adam and Eve, we reap the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil.

Whether our life will be only physical and temporary or will last forever depends on whether we allow our Creator to actively change our hearts and minds.

As He told the people of ancient Israel: "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice" (Deuteronomy 30:19-20, emphasis added throughout).

From the beginning God has wanted all human beings to walk the path that leads to eternal life. Yet only one person has ever heeded His voice completely and walked that path perfectly—Jesus Christ!

All the rest of us have fallen short (Romans 3:23).

At His crucifixion, Jesus, through His death, implemented the New Covenant. This is why, on the evening before He was crucified, Jesus "took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is [figuratively speaking] the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you'" (Luke 22 :20).

In that new covenant God gathers together all of the carefully planned details of His plan of salvation. To benefit from that wonderful plan, it is essential that we correctly understand the meaning and purpose of the New Covenant that Christ implemented. Far too many people still misapply or distort what the Bible actually says about that New Covenant. Let's now unravel those distortions.

Understanding Colossians 2

Colossians 2
16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. 18 Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.

20 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations— 21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” 22 which all concern things which perish with the using—according to the commandments and doctrines of MEN? 23 These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh. [emphasis mine]

Those who rightly divide the Word, who submit to the plain truth of the Bible, know that Colossians was speaking of both pagan Gentile and strict Jewish criticism of the Church of God for keeping the biblical Sabbath and biblical festivals in spirit and in truth.

I encourage those who are interested in what the Bible really teaches, and who love the plain truth more than the idolatrous traditions of apostate Christians, to check out:

Colossians 2:16-17 by Larry J. Walker
Colossians 2:16-17: Are God's Laws Obsolete?
Colossians 2:16 Shows Gentile Christians Kept the Holy Days

Furthermore, it is making reference to the commandments and doctrines of MEN - not the dietary laws of God! How do so many manage to read right over that? They're wearing traditional blinders!

House of the God of Jacob

The God of Jacob

All nations must learn about the God of JACOB [not Esau or Ishmael] or they'll become history.

Isaiah 2:3
And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the [Temple] mountain of the LORD, to the [temple] house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law [it wasn't done away], and the word of the LORD [not allah] from Jerusalem [not Rome or Mecca or Medina].

Here's a wonderful description of how the God of Jacob works and how He teaches the nations:

Zechariah 14
16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles [not pagan Christmas or pagan Easter that apostate Christians observe or Ramadan]. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Traditional Christians, counterfeit Christianity, reprobate Christians, must repent of their accursed replacement theology that cheaply substitutes Sunday for Sabbath and pagan holidays for biblical festivals.

Plea to Protestants and Catholics to Repent!
