Ministry with Commitment | VOL. 35 * NEWSLETTER * SEPT./OCT. 1998 |
Dear OR TZION family & friends,
Please accept my apologies for the delay of this issue and missing the May/June and July/August* issues due to a Mid-April visit with my mother in Germany to celebrate her 80th birthday. Afterward I toured with my daughter around Israel one week, as the nation celebrated her 50th year of Jewish sovereignty back in the promised land. It was her first visit ever and she enjoyed every moment of it. Following our oldest son’s 23rd birthday I left for the U.S. There was simply no time to write a newsletter. Upon my return to Israel I needed several weeks to recuperate from the bad cold I caught in Michigan, and keep my left foot propped up as I had injured it terribly just before my last 4 days of ministry. The cold is gone, but my foot receives physio therapy to treat lingering weakness and swelling at the ankle.
My first week of ministry was at a Camp Meeting in LaPaz, Indiana. We had a select group of people eager to learn, with hearts ready to receive and obey. At the final service the Holy Spirit called us to a commitment of carrying the torch of G-d’s truth fearlessly, despite persecution and death1, as already occurs in many parts of the world.
Each of us was required to examine our own heart as to whether or not we were willing to pay the price of following Yeshua in the days ahead. As I held up the Bible as the Lord’s “Torch”, the people gathered about it and one by one their faces revealed how deeply aware they were of the gravity of this committment. While we committed ourselves to keeping His Word of patient endurance and not denying His Name2 the Lord granted counsel, guidance, exhortation and encouragement to a number of people through the prophetic anointing.
I want to thank all you dear, precious saints for sharing your home, food and blessings with me. I enjoyed being your guest. Let us always remember that whatsoever we do to one another, we do unto the Lord — literally. Although we may not see Him but rather another person, it is nevertheless Him visiting us, staying with us, having dinner with us and being treated with preference, indifference or prejudice.
The Lord Yeshua identifies completely with each believer, whether man or woman, young or old. His words to Saul on the road to Damascus, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?”; and, “Whoever welcomes you welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One Who sent Me” make this abundantly clear. Also, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me … and just as you did NOT do it to one of the least of these, you did NOT do it to Me”3.
Surely we would treat the Lord with the utmost reverence, preference and love, if we knew it was Him visiting us. However, when we see only a brother or sister, we sadly do not esteem them worthy of that same honor and love. And yet — IT IS indeed the Lord visiting us! If only we could remember this! What a blessed difference that would make in the Body of Messiah!
Just before my return to Israel, the Lord blessed the last service with His manifest Presence – binding up the brokenhearted, delivering from bondage, baptizing with the Holy Spirit, saving some, getting others to recommit, admonishing and encouraging with a prophetic word, and imparting His call in the presence of many witnesses. It is among such assemblies where the Holy Spirit feels truly welcome that there is freedom of ministry and the manifestation of the Lord’s Presence and power, as it is written: ”Where the Spirit is, there is liberty!”4
This year’s particular theme of ministry was “commitment” to be faithful, “even unto death,” as is written: “Consider Him Who endured such hostility against Himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood” 5. As His call went forth people came up to the front weeping, falling on their knees and on their faces, giving their lives to the Lord in deep consecration.
The Lord is raising up saints for the Last Hour to give testimony of Yeshua fearlessly, not treasuring their life above the Gospel. What a privilege to be granted a share in His suffering that we may also share in His glory.
The theme of my ministry for 1999 is “to be found in Yeshua; to be secure in Him; to walk and live as citizens of G-d’s Kingdom, in that authority and power.” I will teach again on the Rapture in more exhaustive detail. The Lord’s burden is for His saints to learn to walk in this truth. Hence, I will talk less about Israel this time, and more on our relationship with G-d and this world, that we may be equipped for difficult days ahead, and for the Rapture. It is most urgent for us to be established in our status as children of G-d, as citizens of heaven and co-heirs with Israel, lest we get shaken in our salvation and lose what we have6.
Therefore those of you who requested my return, please contact me immediately to schedule my visits with you (see page 8). Pray about what each of you can donate for my visit, so that with your combined efforts none is burdened unduly. Acording to the Lord I plan my visit for the first half of the year 1999. The second half I shall be in Israel and will not go abroad.
For speaking engagements, teaching sessions or camp meetings, please write me at:

The Year 1999, or the Y2Kpage 2
IN THE YEAR 1999:Some of you may remember the vision I had in 1979 regarding America. This was a vision of terror, like that of pharao’s seven thin cows swollowing up the seven fat and sleek ones:
I saw a huge sea of crushed cars pushing toward me which, rather than crushing me, formed a protective roof over me. As I stood beneath the shelter of crushed cars, a torrent of water came rushing over it. From where I stood I could clearly see the impressive building of Capitol Hill and masses of people running toward it seeking shelter from the huge flood. The waters rushed forcefully up the hill and into the building, causing the stone roof to crack and cave in. Falling pieces of stone smashed the people beneath. They scrambled desperately to escape the collapsing roof. Looking upwards to avoid the falling pieces, they didn’t see a huge hole which had opened up in the midst of Capitol Hill’s floor. Unaware, they fell into the hole while trying to escape death from the collapsing roof. Horrorstricken, I left the safety of the crushed cars and ran toward Capitol Hill to warn people of the hole, but no one heard me, no one heeded, not even one. Helplessly I watched the people fall into the hole. The rushing waters had done their work, and the very thing to which the people ran for shelter from the flood became their downfall and their grave.
“Warn the people not to invest any of their money in any of the government ventures, bonds or accounts. ALL will be lost, no matter how great a temporary gain some may make. Judgment is decreed upon the American Government,” the Lord said. This judgment was sealed by President Bush’s and Secretary of State Baker’s Tunis Talks Y with the PLO. During President Reagan’s tenure judgment was postponed (like Nineveh’s judgment got delayed), but now the measure has been filled up doubly by President Clinton, who is the co-signer of the Oslo Accords and the Wye Summit Agreements. There is no reversing of this divine judgment, and any prophecy to the contrary is a lie. The prophets in Jeremiah’s and Ezekiel’s days prophesied lies, causing the people to perish rather than prepare for evil days ahead.
In 1979, when there was no sign of doom and collapse, I was ridiculed and the message of warning not taken seriously. The same happened to David Wilkerson who had received a very similar message of warning.
Even Derek Prince, a well known preacher and teacher on Israel and Messiah Yeshua, has the last few years devoted almost his entire time of ministry to the U.S. due to the tremendous burden he has for the saints there.
I am not a doomssayer, but the Word clearly says: “A prudent man sees danger and hides himself; but the simple goes on and suffers for it” 7. The virtuous woman sees to it that her family and household is well provided for and safe 8, and does not remain idle in the face of approaching disaster. Calamity must strike the global economy to spur the one-world banking and trade system, the one of the “beast”. Once the global economy is secured in a uni-system, the “domino effect” is nipped in the bud. The so-called “Anti-christ” may be the architect of this one world system, by which he will “save” the world out of the economic debacle. It will seem to be a magnificent blessing, the solution to salvaging all failing economies.
Let us prepare for the possibility of a very bumpy transition into the next millennia. My family did not believe that Hitler would ever do what some people said he would and hence failed to leave Germany when there was still time. They paid with their lives for ignoring the warning signals. I surely don’t want to repeat their mortal error. Better to be prepared than overwhelmed by disaster, because we ignored the warnings. Had Noah not believed the coming of a flood and not obeyed God, he and his family would have perished together with all the others. But Noah took the warning to heart and made preparation as instructed by G-d, and so escaped.
G-d has been warning us since 1979, and with increasing urgency during the last few years. We are not meant to suffer loss and go down with the worldwide economic disaster. However, those who refuse to take heed and rather listen to lying prophets will have no one to blame but themselves. G-d was faithful, and so were (are) His messengers.
Indeed, we have not received a spirit of fear, and I do not in the least intend to instill fear in you. What we need is good common sense and enough wisdom and faith to gear up for the change of the millennium. The Lord is standing at the door! Let us trust and obey our Heavenly Father Who promised that when we pass through the waters He will be with us; swelling rivers shall not overwhelm us; and even when we walk through fire, it shall not burn us, and the flame shall not consume us 9.
G-d did NOT promise that we would never go through waters, rivers, fire and flames. Only false prophets promise such things. They are LIES! What our Heavenly Father DID promise is that He would safely guide us through such troubles. However — G-d does not protect nor help fools, nor reward presumptiousness! Those who say – while they clearly hear the words of warning – that the Lord will take care of them when the time comes, and that there is no need to make preparations for that would be a lack of faith, seem not to realize that G-d indeed takes care of them — by warning and instructing them.
Had David said, “G-d has anointed me. I shall never be moved,” and failed to flee from Saul when he sought his life, he would have been killed. David even lived among the Philistines in Ziklak to be safe from Saul. Joseph and Miriam fled from Herod to Egypt with Yeshua because that’s how and where G-d was protecting them. Had they not fled, we dare not think what could have happened at the massacre of the infants at Bethlehem! And our Lord did not just stay around Nazareth and Jerusalem when they sought to kill Him 10. He hid and fled to safety, until His time had come.
Let us not put the Lord to the test by acting presumptiously. Let us walk in the obedience of faith, with wisdom and foresight, without fear.
Y Dec. 10, 1998: The “Tunis Talks” seem to have been “swept under the table.” I cannot find a single document deliberating on this pathmaking event which rendered the PLO socially and politically acceptable.
Updated Jan. 20, 2005: I recently actually found 2 web sites mentioning these talks. See Archive Newsletter #7, footnote #9, and PALESTINE FACTS :
“Responding to the PLO’s public pledges of this policy change, Shultz quickly announced that the US conditions were met and a US-PLO dialogue began in Tunis. Those talks ultimately led to the 1991 Madrid Conference…”.
Up until then no government representatives of any nation met openly, publicly (albeit probably secretly) with PLO representatives. After U.S. delegates had met publicly and officially with PLO “officials,” the whole world followed suit. Now the U.S. government takes the next step with the U.S President, Bill Clinton, visiting Yasser Arafat in person in Gaza, thereby declaring the chief executive of international terrorism, Yasser Arafat, equal to elected heads of government The world has made of a murderer and man of lawlessness, on whose hands is the innocent blood of countless victims, a respectable “head of state,” although he does NOT preside over a state. What becomes evident from this sort of action by the leading man of the Western world is, that the replacement of the Jewish state with a Palestinian state is already a fact on the ground in his pursuit of U.S. policy.
The “Tunis Talks” only made the love affair between the U.S. government and the PLO publicly official. Now it is “kosher” for everyone to go to bed with the PLO.
7 Proverbs 22:2, RSV 9 Isaiah 43:2 8Pr 31:10-27, 28-31 10Luke 4:28-30; John 7:1; 8:59; 10:39-40
Global Warming, or Signs of the Time?page 3
Environmentalists say the rash of chaotic weather across the United States and around the world proves that global warming has started, and have urged Congress to approve a treaty reducing so-called greenhouse effects. According to new data compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the average global temperature last July was 61.7 degrees Fahrenheit, 1.26 degrees higher than the long-term average for July, and 0.45 degrees higher than the previous record for the month, set last year. Texas was scorched by triple digit temperatures for 29 consecutive days; severe flooding, storms and tornados hit the Midwest and fires raged in Florida. Uncontrollable fires in Mexico and Central America spread a blanket of smoke over most of Texas and Oklahoma, even effecting States as far away as Michigan and Indiana.
“This was the hottest July ever recorded in the history of the world,” Vice-President Al Gore said in releasing the data at the White House.
This year we have seen the beginning of fierce heat 11, and this time it will not relent. How long until the Church worldwide realizes that we are already living in the days prophesied in Revelation? This prophecy does not cover only the last seven years, but also most vividly depicts the events preceding the last seven years.
“Now when you break the record every single month, seven months in a row, it is really hard to ignore the fact that something is going on, and what that something is, is global warming,” Gore said.
Yes, something IS going on, but neither Gore, nor Congress, nor any other “expert” for that matter seems to realize that this “global warming” phenomenon may be a divine warning of impending judgment, in particular on the U.S., the world’s worst and greediest exploiter of earth’s treasures.
“Americans have suffered through weather extremes of biblical proportions,” a Sierra Club scientist said. Indeed they have, and the Lord had me warn of these coming conditions already in the eighties, saying that America’s role in dividing up G-d’s Land, in exploiting the earth and filling her with weapons and violence, her unrestrained revelry in luxury and surplus, in drugs, alcohol and fornication, and the murder of unborn children and profitable trade with their discarded bodies Y (used in the production of beauty products, especially skin care) would bring these disasters upon the nation.
To trifle with the oath of the Almighty concerning the inheritance of His own Land is mortally dangerous. Jimmy Carter, the self-proclaimed “born-again” U.S. President, took the lead in dividing up G-d’s Land when he brokered the Camp David Accords. President Bush and Secretary of State James Baker furthered this process of dividing up Israel piece by piece (that is the famous “p[ie]eace-process”) with the Tunis Talks, the Madrid Conference, and the Jericho-Gaza First Agreements. Clinton filled up this measure of wickedness by setting his seal to the “Oslo Accords” (also known as “Declaration of Principles) and sponsoring the Wye Plantation Summit.
Three American Presidents applied relentless pressure on three Israeli Prime ministers that they were unable to resist. Three American Presidents treated Israel’s leaders as “subjects” rather than as heads of state of a sovereign nation. Topping the Americans’ disgraceful handling of their Israeli guests was the outrageous double standard applied to them.
The chaotic weather pattern and the pests are only the beginning of G-d’s judgments on America. The coming economical disaster will bring her to her knees.
Nineveh was spared because her king heeded Jonah’s warning. The whole city, from the king on downward to the least of them, repented and humbled themselves before the Lord 12. And G-d postponed their judgment for one hundred years.
But the American leaders of today neither acknowledge G-d’s disciplining hand nor repent of their evil doings. Therefore, no amount of prayer will reverse G-d’s judgment. Rather, let prayers be offered for the salvation of many, and for the rescue and escape of the saints.
America’s government has challenged the Holy One of Israel, defying His oath, violating His statues and pressuring Israel’s leaders to break G-d’s everlasting Covenant13. Now the EC (or EU) with Austria in the lead, has joined in the plot against G-d and His people, as is written in Psalm 2:1-3, “Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the L-RD and His anointed 14, saying, ‘Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us.’”
This simply will not go unpunished!
A melting Antarctic glacier could lead to the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS), causing
global sea levels to rise up to 20 feet, researchers said. Antarctica, the fifth-largest continent, is almost completely covered with ice. About 90% of the world’s glacial ice is in Antarctica.
If the WAIS collapses it would push sea levels up throughout the world, with regions near sea level experiencing more flooding and faster erosion. It is speculated that warmer ocean waters were causing Pine Island glacier’s rapid bottom melting.
“If world sea levels went up six meters there would be problems for all coastal areas,” said Craig Lingle, a glaciologist at the University of Alaska in Farkbanks. Richard Alley, a glaciologist at Penn State University, foresees a worldwide disaster scenario if the glacier retreated too far 15.
11Rev. 16:8-9 12 Jonah 3:1-10 13 Isaiah 24 14 G-d’s Word is fulfilled more than once. Israel is also called G-d’s “anointed” (see Ps 105:13-15), whose administration and government they want to overthrow 15 Luke 21:25-26: “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and foreboding of what is coming on the world…” Y Since I reported on such activities and featured a link to a site graphically illustrating “the business”, the web site has been removed. Whether the site was a hoax or not, the truth about trade with discarded bodies of aborted babies and trafficking in body parts is not.
Global Financial Epidemic and the Implanted Chippage 4
A nightmare scenario is threatening to unfold for the global economy that could be beyond the reach of U.S. policymakers. ”Fix” proposed for World Financial System.
Who is the Man of Sin?
The Dow Jones registered its 2nd largest drop in history1, plunging more than 510 points, as worries over the global economy sent the market in a headspinning fall that erased all of 1998’s gain. This was followed by the highest rise ever recorded which in turn will go into another downward spin.
The financial crisis that started over a year ago in Thailand, then spread across Asia to Russia and finally to Latin America, once looked manageable. But now analysts warned it may turn into a global epidemic.
“This is a serious global emergency,” said Greg Master of the Washington based Economic Strategy Institute. “It is foolish to think that this problem is going to go away overnight.”
In June, the world’s financial problems dominated the top-level talks among financial leaders gathered for the International Monetary Fund’s annual meeting. President Clinton told the conference it was crucial to boost an ailing global financial system.
“We must ensure that the international financial architecture is prepared for the new challenges of our time, especially the challenge of building a system that will lessen and manage the risks in the global market to allow countries to reap the benefits of free-flowing capital in a way that is safe and sustainable.”
The “implanted Media”, allegedly Clinton’s favorite project, is a chip containing the individual’s entire data to be implanted on the forehead or hand. Experiments have already been done on Alzheimer’s patients and specially gifted children and schools in California updated January 19, 2005! 2
U.S. Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin has warned frequently that U.S. prosperity and jobs could be at risk if Asia’s economic sickness infected other emerging economies. The Asian crisis has caused the U.S. trade deficit to soar which, combined with a collapse of Latin American economies, might all hit closer to home than most Americans anticipate.
The collapse of the world’s economies in conjunction with the Y2K problems may pave the way for the one-world eco-system, and for the man (government) who will create it. The following is an excerpt from my book, “The Unchangeable Calendar of G-d”:
IN THE YEAR 1999:The European Community (also called EU/European Union) had its conception in 1974 (see “history” of EU). There is a likely possibility that the EC is the “little horn” in Daniel 7:23-26, which boasts of great things. In 1999 the EC will, in all likelihood, have achieved its unity in the financial, economic and military sector and will become one of the world’s most formidable power-blocs. The EC could be the ten toes of Daniel 2:33, 41-45. Although their monetary, economical and military union will have “iron” strength, their “marriage” will not last because of national jealousies and pride ([represented by the clay], despite efforts to create a United Europe stripped of individual nationalism). However, for a time no single nation will be able to withstand the EC, and the U.S. may have to give up both crown and throne.
1 March 16, 1999, Dow Jones placed a record high of 10,000 points. Its a roller coaster, and eventually will crash land. 2 Updated information on the “Implanted Chip”: WorldNetDaily: Bio-chip implant arrives for cashless transactions – Announcement at global security confab unveils syringe-injectable ID microchip; Posted: Friday, November 21, 2003, 7:42 p.m. Eastern, by

The International Monetary Fund, the Red Dragon and the Beastpage 5
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) was established in 1944 with 48 nations. Today the IMF boasts 181 member nations, of whom the TEN ( G–10 ) most powerful, industrial nations are the decision makers. These nations are:
More food for thought
of a very potential likelihood
of Daniel’s vision, and Rev. 12:3 and 13:1-18:
♦ No one can borrow from ANY bank apar t from the IMF!!!
1. U.S.A. 2. Canda 3. Ger 4. Brit 5. Fra 6. Italy 7. Sweden 8. Belg 9. Lxbg 10. Jap 11. Swiss
♦ The decisions of the European Community (EC) do not affect the whole world as yet.
♦ The BIG TEN of the IMF affect EVERY nation in the world!!!
♦ The EC has increased to a membership of 15 (27 in 2007) — not 10 — nations. If the EC represents the ten horns, then we have to dismiss the IMF. But — the IMF has SEVEN (7) HEADS!!!
♦ Since 1975 the GREAT SEVEN (now G-8) of the BIG TEN (now G -11) O have been meeting once a year, their picture promptly appearing in all the major papers and magazines the world over. The G-7 are the heads of state of the following nations:
1. U.S.A. 2. Canada 3. Japan 4. Britain 5. Germany 6. France 7. Italy 8. Russia
♦ The Beast of Revelation 13 also has ten Horns and seven Heads. But this time there are ten Diadems on the ten Horns. I.e., this beast consists of ten Powers who are crowned with leadership! It is difficult to ignore the worldwide leadership and dominance of the G-10, and the incredible power of influence and decision making of the G-7! 16
One of the seven heads (see above) will receive a “mortal” blow from which it will seem impossible to recover. Yet this leader (government) will reemerge, and apparently become even the “top-head” of the ten-nations-beast. Whoever this may be, he probably will be the architect of a one-world financing and eco-system, to avoid any future crisis and collapse as we will most probably experience in the transition from 1999 into the year 2000. And the whole world will gladly subscribe to this new system. It is the “beast” whose “mark” we must not bear.
16 Thought inspired Mr. CHARLES MILLER, whom I heard speaking on “The March Toward World Government” at a Symposium on Israel at Bridgmont, MI, in September 1996. The symposium was organized by Blossoming Rose under the direction of Dr. DeWayne Coxon.
O Since 1998 many changes have taken place. The “potential likelihood” of the G-7 and G-10 being part of the dragon in Rev.12 and 13 has evaporated, as they are now G-8 and and G-11. I keep this page nevertheless as a realistic picture of the coming 7 heads, 10 horns and 7 crowns, and the 10 crowns on the 10 horns.
If the Foundations are destroyed, what can the Righteous do?page 6
1. Following techniques used by British researches to clone Dolly the sheep, Japanese scientists at the Kagoshima Cattle Breeding Development Institute produced in July 1998 a cloned calf at the reseach facility in southwestern Japan. The male calf weighed 57.2 kg (126 lbs), larger than most calves, and died 16 hours after it was born of massive internal bleeding. A surrogate cow died earlier that month after giving birth to twin cloned calves at the Ishikawa Research Centre in Japan. Cloning cows shall supply Japan with cheaper meat, replacing the costly imports.
Watch! Be alert! Beware! Cloning is becoming daily a more acceptable way of reproduction! It paves the way to “farming” organsboth of animals and humans! Producing a “harvest” of human babies (from “sub-humans” such as Jews and Christians) is no longer merely an utopic vision of a demonically inspired mind! It is a fearsome possibility!
2. U.S. prison population increased by more than 61,000 inmates last year to a record of nearly 1.25 million state and federal prisoners, the Justice Department reported. During the last seven years, the nation’s prison population has soared by more than 60%, increasing by more than 470,000 inmates. The numbers do not include the approximately 567,000 people who are held in local jails.
The Lord’s warning of increasing lawlessness and terror is clearly documented in these statistics!
The quote, which was featured here, has been removed since it could not be verified. CBS denies ever having featured an interview with AG Janet Reno on “60 Minutes” or any other program. The (apparently not trustworthy) source who supplied the quote could not be reached to verify the quote. My apologies for a statement that could not be verified and therefore is to be regarded as untrue. This web site is not a place for gossip, but for the truth. Again, my sincerest apologies!
Israel has resisted U.S. proposals calling on it to cede another 13% of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to Palestinian “self-rule” (i.e., a terrorist police-state) in exchange for “concrete” Palestinian security guarantees. At the Wye Plantation Summit meeting the Palestinians gave again “guarantees” on the table, the same which until this day never have been substantiated with action. False guarantees (“lies”) are regarded as evidence of Palestinian good-will and cooperation 18, sufficient to insist on Israel ceding yet more land.
The only “concrete” thing is the Land handed over, NOT PLO guarantees!!!
How effective are prayer and intercessory ministries when they completely lack the vision for Israel? The curse of the Holy One of Israel 19 will devour America, while many have still no inkling of what might have changed America’s fate.
Arafat has repeatedly threatened to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as capital, unless a final peace settlement is reached with Israel by May 4, 1999 – the deadline under the Oslo interim accords. On his first state visit to South Africa in August Arafat stressed that there would be no peace in the region without the “return” of Jerusalem 20 to Palestinian hands.
“Peace will not prevail and security and stability be achieved without the return of Jerusalem to its homeland and owners,” Arafat said. “Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine. There is no concession or bargaining for it.”
However, G-d says, “I have set my king upon Zion, my holy hill… Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.” 21 Arafat’s words leave no doubt that his understanding of the peace process is the process of dividing up Israel piece by piece, until Jewish sovereignty can be eliminated and the Jewish people obliterated.
Let me state it again: anyone who supports – actively or passively – this Palestinian “claim & cause” joins the enemies of G-d 22, Who has chosen Jerusalem as His dwelling place in the midst of the restored tribes of Israel. There is not a single Scripture to the effect that G-d has retracked His oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob concerning the inheritance of the Land and made the Palestinians the new heirs and owners. G-d is the Sovereign Creator of the whole earth. He has chosen to give this land to the descendants of Jacob.
Who then, is Arafat???!
17During his speech at the Wye Plantation signing ceremony Yasser Arafat made a revealing slip of the tongue: instead of “final status” he said “final solution.” Under this banner the Nazis’ undertook the genocide of the Jewish people and Arafat’s uncle, Grand Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini, attempted to import ther Nazis’ “Final Solution” into the British Mandate named by the Brits “Palestine” – lest the world would realkize that the geographical mass of the Mandate actually was “Eretz Israel,” the Land of Israel. . It is genocide, and not peace, that is Arafat’s “final solution.” 18Please compare with the Word in Ja 1:22; 2:14-26; if acts do not follow the agreements then they are as worthless as faith without works is worthless; and if they make only speeches on “peace” but are not doers of it they deceive themselves and others. 19Genesis 12:3; 27:29; Numbers 24:9 22Obadiah 10-11
When NATO and the Arab League Meet at the Euphrates, 2 Billion will Diepage 7
The EU in the Arab-Israeli
( or better, Hell-Heaven) Conflict
The Austrian Chancellor Viktor Klima, whose country holds the EU (European Union) presidency, pledged that Austria would use its EU presidency to maintain pressure on Israel. Arafat said that he had high expectations of Austria’s (anti-Semitic) EU presidency. Klima said furthermore that Austria would press the EU to continue with a programme of financial aid for the Palestinians — worth $ 1.9 billion — and would seek talks with its partners about a French/Egyptian initiave for a new Middle East Peace Conference.
This, despite the fact that a 1997 official report of the Palestinian Auditing Office said that Arafat’s Palestinian Authority squandered $ 326 million; and a scathing parliamentary probe alleged that corruption and mismanagement was rampant. Reforms and council resolutions have been left unsigned or unimplemented by the executive branch. Palestinian lawmakers have charged that Arafat has worked systematically to contain and weaken council attempts to check the executive’s authority.
But Israel is pressured to hand over concrete portions of precious land to a man who does not keep his promises even to his own people. He was and is a man of lawnessness.
5. Syrian President Hafez al-Assad visited France on his first trip to a Western country in 22 years, trying to get Europe to play a more forceful role in the peace process to counter-balance the U.S., which he sees as “biased” in favour of Israel. “Syria wanted to make peace with Israel,” Assad said, “but would not give the Jewish State any concessions on land or rights. We will continue to confront the aggression and occupation with steadfastness,” Assad added, changing the facts by turning them upside down, trusting in the worldwide ignorance and indifference concerning actual facts. Two weeks later the Egyptian foreign minister Amr Moussa visited the French capital for the same purpose and to discuss a Franco-Egyptian proposal to hold an international conference to kick-start again the “piece-by-piece” process.
Indeed, anyone not completely favoring the Arabs’ view in the conflict is considered “biased” in favor of Israel. Watch the approachment of the EU and these Islamic Arab countries! They will soon form an alliance previously unimaginable! The plot against G-d’s Land and people, and, by implication against the Return of the King of Israel, thickens!
First Signs signaling the Coming War at the Euphrates River 23Signs of the time are like embryos: we may not have recognized their inception, but we can see from the shape their development takes what they will turn out to be. Hence, the information given in this letter is not of a “political” nature or interest, but is meant to help recognize the “shape” these embryonic signs are taking: the one-world system G-d calls “beast” has been conceived and is developing before our eyes, as is WWIV(?) which will erupt at the banks of the Euphrates River, and Damascus’ fate – she has never ever been destroyed – to become a heap of ruins.
Turkey and Syria were in an “undeclared war” over Syria’s sponsorship of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebel group, worsened by rising tensions over territory 24, water sharing and Turkey’s military alliance with Israel.
In response to Turkish threats Syria called for Arab support on a level with that seen in the 1973 Middle East war when Arabs united behind Syria and Egypt against Israel. The Arab League echoed Syrian and Iranian charges that Turkey’s new informal ally Israel had fomented the row.
Syria, “sandwiched” between Turkey and Israel (actually between Turkey and Jordan), says the pair’s military ties are directed against Damascus and accuses Turkey of limiting crucial water supplies into Syria with their huge (Attatürk) dam project on the River Euphrates.
“Israel is behind this crisis,” Arab League Deputy Secretary-General Ahmed Bin Hilli charged. Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Sezgin countered that “the interpretation of Arab countries doesn’t interest me… To relate our attitude, our stance to the (Turkish) prime minister’s visit to Israel is the product of dreams.”
The United States and much of the Arab world worry that the dispute may spin out of control, destabilize the region and destroy Middle East peace making. In order to calm the tensions Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf countries, and Iran got involved in solving the disputes diplomatically.
Syria and Iran maintain close strategic ties since Syria backed Iran in its 1980-1988 war with Iraq. Teheran and Damascus have condemned the emergence of a Turkish-Israeli military alliance, saying the pact is directed against Syria, Iran and Iraq.
“The only side that will benefit from any military confrontation between the two neighbors Syria and Turkey is Israel,” Syrian Defense Minister, Lt. General Mustafa Tlas said.
May this be so!
In addition. to the development of the “Euphrates conflict” we can observe an Iraq/ Syria rapprochement: A decision by Iraq and Syria to reopen an oil pipeline, closed since 1982, has set relations on a new track. “The rising tension between Syria and Turkey, especially in view of a strong military alliance between Turkey, Israel and the U.S., is pushing Damascus toward a reconciliation with Baghdad,” Z a Western diplomat said.
Hence, we see the leading Arab powers getting involved (now only diplomatically) in the conflict between Syria and Turkey, Israel serving most probably again as G-d’s fuse to ignite the dynamite of their enmity and malice. Irresistably drawn by the cords of their pride and hatred, the Arab League nations will gather behind Syria, only to find themselves suddenly pitched against the NATO nations gathering behind Turkey.
As four of the most evil and powerful angels shall be released from their chains at the River Euphrates 25, a third of mankind, ca. 2 billion, shall perish. May America by that time have rectified its stance toward Israel, lest her sons falling in that war will number in the millions!
23 Revelation 10:13-18 24 Assad’s government lays claim to the province of Hatay ceded to Turkey in 1938 after colonial rule by France. For the time being the dispute has been resolved diplomatically, but will flare up again over the Euphrates. 25 Revelation 9:13-18; Z see also Baghdad – Intl. Herald Tribune
Israel’s Jubilee, The Electronic Tabernacle and Y2Kpage 8
Until here these were our first pages on-line. The response to the newsletters was particularly encouraging which motivated me to continue with it for a time. However, the scope of this Web site is much larger than providing only information. It is foremost prophetic. It is meant to motivate, encourage, and give vision for a meaningful, exciting and fulfilling life. Above all, it is an invitation and challenge to come “face-to-face” with the G-d of Israel and her Savior, Yeshua HaMashiach, who has become the Savior not only of Israel, but also of the Gentiles.
The Lord named this site face=”Lucida Casual”>“The Electronic Tabernacle”, for there G-d met with man face to face. Once He tabernacled in the wilderness, then in a Temple, now in man through faith in His Son, the Redeemer of fallen man. And He chose to name this humble site His Electronic Tabernacle, that whosoever would earnestly seek Him here would also meet Him.
He also prompted me to illustrate a prophesy given me many years ago in Dallas, Texas, by a woman of G-d, Helga Zidermanis (or Zederman). We never had met before and never met again. She did not know me nor my name nor where I come from, and I did not know her. She could not proceed with her Bible study until she spoke this word she had received from the Lord for me. The picture of “The Mountains of Israel” on the homepage illustrate this prophecy.
After seeking G-d earnestly for the timing of the Website, He said, “Succot”. I worked day and night, and with my huband’s help the Electronic Tabernacle went on the world wide Web exactly mid-Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles [Booths]). The second half of Sukkot we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the beautiful Red Sea, with the Lord’s provision. While there I realized the extraordinary timing for the going forth of the Electronic Tabernacle — during “Succot”, the joyful festival of harvest and promise of the eternal Kingdom of G-d; in the Jubilee (50th) year of Israel’s rebirth, in the week of our 25th wedding anniversary. I could never have thought up such timing!
May G-d bless and keep you in health and in His perfect peace, make your plans succeed and the work of your hands prosper. Please pray always for the peace of Jerusalem and the salvation of Israel, and for “Or Tzion” and our family to succeed with our mission.
Yours in Him,
Founder of “Or Tzion” [Light of Zion), Inc.
