My Prayer for Today – November 17, 2017

 For I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all countries and bring you into your own land.

Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanness; and from all your idols will I cleanse you.

A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

And I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall heed My ordinances and do them. (Ezekiel 36:24-27  Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

Abba Father,

I come before you to ask for the forgiveness of my sin of pride, self -centeredness, and the lack of knowledge of who you truly are. I only ask that you will take away this Heart of Stone and replace it with a Heart of Flesh and to give me your Holy Spirit to walk in all of your ways and follow after you through out eternity. I ask this in the name of you son Yeshua- Jesus the Messiah.    Amen

Scientists Trace Humanity Back to Single ‘Adam’ and ‘Eve’, Strengthening Creation Story

God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:26-27 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

 Yahweh-God created mankind on the Sixth day of Creation six thousand years ago, not hundreds of thousands of years ago!

Following the recent trend of congruence between science and Bible in different fields, fresh genetic research suggests that all females are descended from a single female and all males from a single male – corresponding with the Biblical account of Adam and Eve.

For many years the multiregional hypothesis, suggesting multiple origins for humanity, was predominant in genetic research. But new studies suggest that all of humanity has a common origin.

“The Torah has always claimed one common ancestor to all humanity as well as creation ex-nilo,” Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman told Breaking Israel News in response to the finding. “Recent discoveries in these fields seem to confirm these truths.”

The theory was first developed in 1987, when leading science journal Nature published a study investigating humanity’s origins. The study researched mitochondrial DNA, which is passed down from mother to both daughter and son. Because mitochondrial DNA is only passed on by the mother and never the father, it reveals maternal lineage.

Knowing this, the researchers were able to determine that every human being alive today can trace their ancestry back to a single woman now referred to as “Mitochondrial Eve.”  The original research placed Eve somewhere in East Africa between 140,000 and 200,000 years ago. More recent research suggests she may have lived less than 100,000 years ago.

The study was quickly attacked by other researchers, but subsequent studies confirmed the original findings and the theory is now generally accepted in the scientific community.

Professor Karl Skorecki, an expert on DNA and the discoverer of the “Cohen Gene”, which identifies members of the Jewish priestly caste through genetic testing, explained to Breaking Israel News  how the findings harmonize with the Biblical account.

“Analysis of mitochondrial DNA of all contemporary humans sampled today indicates that all of the different variations in the sequence of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) trace back, or converge to an original sequence in a given woman,” he explained.

“That woman, Mitochondrial Eve, transmitted her mtDNA sequence to her offspring, and over generations slight variations in sequence occurred and accumulated, leading to the diversity of existent sequences in men and women populating the earth today.”

Professor Skorecki said that while the findings confirm a single mother to all humanity, they do not suggest she was the only woman of her time. But this, he pointed out, is harmonious with the Bible, which identifies other human populations at the time of Eve.

Ancestral Adam was found in 1995, when a separate study on male ancestry examined the Y-chromosome, passed directly from father to son. Science published the results of a study in which a segment of the Y-chromosome from 38 men from different ethnic groups were analyzed for variation.

Their conclusion was that every man alive today actually descended from a single man whom scientists now refer to as “Y-Chromosomal Adam.”

“The last fifty years of science, especially in the fields of cosmology and quantum physics, have brought Torah and science together as never before,” Rabbi Trugman noted. “Perhaps now the same will occur within anthropology and Torah.”

“Although the Torah is not a science, history, anthropology, philosophy, or cosmology book in the common sense, it is actually all of these and much more,” he added.

The first studies concluded that “Eve” lived much later than “Adam” – some 140,000 years later. But recent studies indicate that Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam may indeed have lived around the same time.

End-times expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston took the comparison even further than confirming the Biblical account, explaining how he sees the confluence between the scientific view of Eve and the Biblical account as a signal of redemption.

“During the exile there was great Hester Panim – a hiding of God’s face. As a result the Bible became relegated to the back of man’s consciousness,” he said. “At the same time, science at first seemed to diverge from religion.

“But since the Torah is the basic fabric of reality it cannot be hidden forever. As the redemption moves forward and the Jews return home, the Bible is coming back to the forefront of man’s consciousness. Along with this we see a growing harmony between science and the Bible. We have even gotten the point where science is now borrowing concepts from the Bible – such as with Mitochondrial Eve.” (Click to Source)

Shabbat Shalom! – Weekly Torah portion from the One New Man Bible – Toldot – Nov 17, 2017

Toldot

jesus-jew-2

25:19. And these are the descendants of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham begot Isaac:20. And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebeccah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister of Laban the Syrian. 21. And Isaac entreated the LORD* for his wife, because she was barren, and the LORD* was entreated by him and Rebeccah his wife conceived.

22. And the children struggled together within her and she said, “If it is so, why am I like this?” And she went to inquire of the LORD*.23. And the LORD* said to her, “Two nations are in your womb and two kinds of people will be separated from your body, and the one people will be stronger than the other people and the elder will serve the younger.” (Rom. 9:12)

25:24. And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25.And the first came out, red all over like a hairy garment and they called his name Esau (Esav). 26.And after that his brother came out and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel, and his name was called Jacob (Yaakov) and Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.27. And the boys grew and Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a plain man, living in tents. 28. And Isaac loved Esau, because he ate of his venison, but Rebeccah loved Jacob.

25:29. And Jacob made a stew and Esau came from the field and he was weary. 30. And Esau said to Jacob, “Feed me, I pray you, with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom, Red. 31. And Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright this day.” 32. And Esau said, “Look, I am at the point of death, so what good will this birthright do me?” 33.And Jacob said, “Swear to me this day.” And he swore to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob. 34. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank, then got up and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

Isaac Calls Rebeccah His Sister

26.1. And there was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines to Gerar.

2. And the LORD* appeared to him and said, “Do not go down into Egypt. Stay in the land which I shall tell you about. 3.Sojourn in this land and I shall be with you, and will bless you, for I shall give all these countries to you and to your seed, and I shall perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4. And I shall make your seed to multiply as the stars of heaven and will give to your seed all these countries. And in your seed will all the nations of the earth be blessed. 5.Because Abraham obeyed My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My Torahs (Teachings).”

26:6. So Isaac stayed in Gerar. 7. And the men of the place asked him about his wife and he said, “She is my sister.” For he feared to say, “She is my wife.” In case, he said, “The men of the place would kill me for Rebeccah,” because she was fair to look upon. 8. And it happened, when he had been there a long time that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window and saw and, behold, Isaac was caressing Rebeccah his wife. 9. And Abimelech called Isaac and said, “Look here! She surely is your wife, so why did you say, ‘She is my sister?’” And Isaac said to him, “Because I said, ‘Lest I die for her.’” 10.And Abimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of our people might lightly have lain with your wife and you would have brought guilt upon us.”11. And Abimelech charged all his people saying, “Whoever touches this man or his wife will surely be put to death.”

Hundredfold Return

26:12. Then Isaac sowed in that land, and in the same year reaped a hundredfold, and the LORD* blessed him. 13. And the man became great and kept increasing and grew until he became very great, 14. for he owned flocks, herds, and had numerous servants, and the Philistines envied him.15. For all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them and filled them with earth. 16. And Abimelech said to Isaac, “Go from us, for you are much mightier than we.” 17. And Isaac left from there and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar and lived there. 18. And Isaac dug the wells of water again, which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them. 19. And Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and found there a well of flowing water. 20. And the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, “The water is ours.” And he called the name of the well Esek, because they quarreled with him. 21. And they dug another well and quarreled for that also, and he called the name of it Sitnah.22. And he left from there and dug another well and they did not argue for that: and he called its name Rehoboth, and he said, “For now the LORD* has made room for us and we will be fruitful in the land.” 23. And he went up from there to Beer-Sheba. 24.And the LORD* appeared to him the same night and said, “I AM the God of Abraham your father. Do not be in awe! I AM with you and will bless you and multiply your seed for My servant Abraham’s sake.” 25. And he built an altar there and called upon the name of the LORD* and pitched his tent there and Isaac’s servants dug a well there.

26:26. Then Abimelech, his friend Ahazzath, and Fikhol the chief captain of his army went to him from Gerar. 27. And Isaac said to them, “Why did you come to me, seeing you hate me and have sent me away from you?” 28. And they said, “We saw that the LORD* was certainly with you and we said, ‘Let there now be an oath between us, between us and you, and let us make a covenant with you 29. so that you will do us no hurt, as we have not touched you and as we have done to you nothing but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD*.’”30. And he made them a feast and they ate and drank. 31. And they got up early in the morning and swore one to another, then Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace. 32.And it was the same day that Isaac’s servants came and told him concerning the well which they had dug, and said to him, “We have found water.” 33. And he called it Shibah: therefore the name of the city is Beer-Sheba to this day.

26:34. And Esau was forty years old when he took for wives Judith the daughter of Be’eri the Hittite, and Basemat the daughter of Elon the Hittite. 35. And they were a source of a bitter spirit for Isaac and Rebeccah.

Blessing Goes to Jacob

27.1. And it was that when Isaac was old and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son and said to him, “My son.” And he said to him, “Here I am.” 2. And he said, “Behold now, I am old, I do not know the day of my death. 3. Now take, I beg you, your weapons, your quiver and your bow and go out to the field and take me some venison.4. And make me savory meat, such as I love and bring it to me, so I can eat, so I can bless you before I die.” 5.But Rebeccah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison and to bring it.

27:6. And Rebeccah spoke to Jacob her son saying, “Behold, I heard your father speak to Esau your brother saying, 7.‘Bring me venison and make me savory meat, so I may eat and bless you before the LORD* before my death.’ 8. So now, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command you. 9. Go now to the flock and fetch me from there two good kids of the goats, and I shall make savory meat for your father, such as he loves. 10. And you will bring it to your father, so he may eat and so he can bless you before his death.”

27:11. And Jacob said to Rebeccah his mother, “Look, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man. 12. Perhaps my father will feel me and I shall seem to him as a mocker, and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.”

27:13. And his mother said to him, “Your curse will be upon me, my son. Only obey my voice and go get them for me.”

27:14. And he went, and got them and brought them to his mother and his mother made savory meat, such as his father loved. 15. And Rebeccah took clean garments of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house and put them on Jacob her younger son. 16. And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands and upon the smooth nape of his neck, 17. then she gave the savory meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

27:18. And he came to his father and said, “My father.” And he said, “Here I am. Who are you, my son?” 19. And Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn. I have done according as you asked me. Get up now, please. Sit and eat of my venison, so your soul can bless me.” 20. And Isaac said to his son, “How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?” And he said, “Because the LORD* your God brought it to me.” 21. And Isaac said to Jacob, “Come near, please, so I can feel you, my son, whether or not you are my very son, Esau.” 22. And Jacob went near to Isaac his father, and he felt him and said, “The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.”23. And he did not discern him, because his hands were hairy, like his brother Esau’s hands: so he blessed him. 24. And he said, “Are you my very son Esau?” And he said, “I am.” 25. And he said, “Bring it near to me and I shall eat of my son’s venison, so my soul may bless you.” And he brought it near to him and he ate, and he brought him wine, and he drank. 26. And his father Isaac said to him, “Come near now and kiss me, my son.” 27. And he came near and kissed him, and he smelled the smell of his raiment and blessed him and said, “See, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field which the LORD* has blessed. 28. And may God give you of the dew of heaven and the fatness of the earth and plenty of grain and wine. 29. Let people serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers and let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be those who curse you, and blessed be those who bless you.” (Gen. 12:3, Heb. 11:20)

27:30. And it was, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob had scarcely gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. 31.And he also had made savory meat and brought it to his father and said to his father, “Let my father get up and eat of his son’s venison, so you yourself may. bless me.” 32.And Isaac his father said to him, “Who are you?” And he said, “I am your son, your firstborn Esau.” 33. And Isaac trembled very exceedingly and said, “Who? Where is he who has taken venison and brought it to me and I have eaten of all before you came, and have blessed him? Yes, he will be blessed” 34.And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry and said to his father, “Bless me, me too, O my father.” 35. And he said, “Your brother came with deceit and has taken away your blessing.” 36. And he said, “Is he not rightly named Jacob? For he has outwitted me these two times: he took away my birthright and, behold, now he has taken away my blessing.” And he said, “Have you not reserved a blessing for me?” 37. And Isaac answered and said to Esau, “Behold; I have made him your master and I have given all his brothers to him for servants, and with grain and wine have I sustained him: and what will I do now for you, my son?”38. And Esau said to his father, “Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, me too, O my father.” And Esau lifted up his voice and wept. 39. And Isaac his father answered and said to him, “Behold, your dwelling will be of the fatness of the earth and of the dew of heaven from above. 40.And by your sword will you live, and will serve your brother. And it will be when you have the dominion, that you will break his yoke from off your neck.” (Heb. 11:20)

27:41. And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, “The days of mourning for my father are at hand. Then I shall slay my brother Jacob.” 42. And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebeccah and she sent and called Jacob her younger son and said to him, “Behold, your brother Esau, as touching you, comforts himself, purposing to kill you. 43. Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. Rise, flee for yourself to Laban my brother in Haran. 44. And tarry with him a few days, until your brother’s fury turns away.45. Until your brother’s anger turns away from you and he forgets that which you have done to him, then I shall send and fetch you from there. Why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?”

27:46. And Rebeccah said to Isaac, “I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth. If Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these of the daughters of the land, what good will my life do me?”

Jacob Goes to Get a Wife

28.1. And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and charged him and said to him, 2. “You will not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padan-Aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father and take a wife for yourself from there of the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother. 3. And God Almighty will bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, so you will be an asssembled multitude of people, 4. and give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, so you may inherit the land in which you are living, which God gave to Abraham.” 5.And Isaac sent Jacob away. And he went to Padan-Aram, to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebeccah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.

28:6. When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Padan-Aram, to take a wife for himself from there, and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge saying, “You will not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.” 7.And Jacob obeyed his father and his mother and went to Padan-Aram. 8. And Esau, seeing that the daughters of Canaan were bad in the eyes of Isaac his father, 9. Esau then went to Ishmael, and took Mahalath to be his wife, in addition to the wives that he had. She was the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebaioth.  (Click to Source)

Trump Administration Close To Unveiling Major Deal In The Middle East

362314052

The Trump Administration is getting closer to unveiling what the President calls “the ultimate deal” – a final solution to the Israeli-Palestinian “problem”:

Trump, who considers himself a dealmaker, decided to adopt the challenge when he took office in January, intrigued at the idea of succeeding where other presidents failed, and he assigned the effort to Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser. Neither had any background with the issue, and the effort was greeted with scorn, but the fact that the president entrusted it to a close relative was taken as a sign of seriousness in the region.

Trump’s team sees the convergence of factors that make the moment ripe, including an increased willingness by Arab states to finally solve the issue to refocus attention on Iran, which they consider the bigger threat.

With that in mind, Egypt is brokering a reconciliation between President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, who presides in the West Bank, and Hamas, which controls Gaza, a deal that would cement the Palestinian Authority as the representative of the Palestinian people. Saudi Arabia has summoned Abbas to Riyadh to reinforce the importance of a deal.

“The stars begin to align in a way that creates a moment,” said Nimrod Novik, a fellow at the Israel Policy Forum who served as foreign policy adviser to former Prime Minister Shimon Peres, who negotiated the Oslo Accords in the 1990s.

The New York Times is confirming this news:

WASHINGTON — President Trump and his advisers have begun developing their own concrete blueprint to end the decades-old conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, a plan intended to go beyond previous frameworks offered by the American government in pursuit of what the president calls “the ultimate deal.”

After 10 months of educating themselves on the complexities of the world’s most intractable dispute, White House officials said, Mr. Trump’s team of relative newcomers to Middle East peacemaking has moved into a new phase of its venture in hopes of transforming what it has learned into tangible steps to end a stalemate that has frustrated even presidents with more experience in the region.

With a dramatic geopolitical realignment occurring in the Middle East as Sunni enclaves Egypt and Saudi Arabia join with Israel as a bulwark against Iran, it seems that the prospects for a mutually agreed upon treaty have never been higher.

Crown Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia is about to take the reins in his country and Abdel el-Sissi of Egypt has successfully negotiated reconciliation in Palestine, so the Sunni-axis of Arab states seem to be jumping at the gun to finally make “peace” with Israel and force an agreement on both Israel and the Palestinians.

The time has never been more ripe and I increasingly expect a final agreement by the end of this year or in 2018, which will be the actual 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth.

Nimrod Novik’s words in regards to the prospects of an agreement seem particularly interesting in light of 2017’s Revelation 12 Sign: “The stars begin to align in a way that creates a moment.”

 

In other news, Australia has just become one of the last major Western-aligned nations to approve gay marriage.  After the 61% to 38% vote, celebrations kicked off with rainbow-clad celebrators dancing naked in Hyde Park, Sydney.  The West has collectively endorsed the right to freedom of behavior at the expense of freedoms of speech, religion, and association.  The naked, defiant throngs of gleeful people provide demonstrable evidence that this movement is not about love at all, but purely about the basest and most degrading desires of sinful humanity.

Folks, don’t get comfortable.  The West is lost and our only hope is Christ.  We are now living in what is the textbook definition of the biblical last days.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

The Battle Still Rages
There are two areas of this Torah portion I would like to expound on this week. In the end the two will tie together as a theme.
The first area to cover is the words of Rivkah (Rebecca). She is found to be barren. Yitzchak prayed for her and she became pregnant. It was not long into her pregnancy that the two boys in her womb began to fight. Let’s stop right here and consider, what these boys were fighting about? Was it because they were uncomfortable in their cramped living quarters and trying to find a bit of room? Absolutely not! It was not a physical fight, but rather a spiritual fight for the position of the Malki-Tzedek priesthood of the first born. This is, by the way a theme which runs from cover to cover in Scripture. Ya’akov and Esav’s fight was so fierce that Rivkah desired to die instead of continuing as the womb of this battle.
Here is a point for each of us to consider. We too are like Rivkah in that two seeds are battling within us. Paul called these two natures. This is the same principal and is one which we all deal with on a daily basis. It is evident to me by my own life and talking with many elders through the years that we are not going to, in this lifetime, reach some magical day in which the fight inside us ceases. The option many people take is hinted in the words of Rivkah, words of surrender to the battle instead of continuing to fight.
Herein lays a place of soul searching we must do. Is there a place, a time, an event in our future in which we will say the fight is too much for us and quit? Consider it this way. What would it take for you to throw in the towel and quit the fight? Be careful in the answer and within the answer consider 1Corinthians 10:12, “Therefore, let anyone who thinks he is standing up be careful not to fall!” Let us keep in mind that winning the battle is not about our strength, but rather His strength in us. As for Rivkah, she found HaShem’s strength and in the end has the testimony to prove it. May the same be true for each of us.
The second area to look at happens after the two boys are adults. The account is very familiar to all of us. It is about the red stew. That is not really true. It is not about stew, but rather the birthright. Esav had won the race from the womb and the birth right was his. He never cared about it. He never walked in it. To him it was just a trophy on the wall which no longer had meaning. To Ya’akov it meant everything and he was determined to do whatever necessary to have the birthright as well as the blessings and responsibilities that went along with it. In the end, Ya’akov would not steal the birthright as he has been accused of, but rather he would barter for it, fair and square.
Here is our second point to consider. Just what does it mean for us today to walk in the birthright? Is it about relationship with our Creator, walking in the redemption offered to us? Is it about our being a priest in service unto Him and an example of Him unto others? The answer is “yes” to all the above and so much more. So what is that birthright worth to you? Is it something worth fighting for and protecting at all costs? I can only answer for myself.
Here is the theme of this week’s Torah portion, fight for what is being offered to us. Fight and never be willing to compromise the inheritance which has been afforded us. I’ll state it this way. In this life we must always remember that we are not on a playground, but rather on a battleground. The battle being fought is for your very soul. Not something to play games with! (Click to Source)

Disease outbreaks are often staged to generate funding for Big Pharma

pills-money-pharma

(Natural News) When you have a product to sell, you need to strike the right balance between supply and demand. The basic laws of economics state that when you have a supply of products that you’d like to move, one way to sell them is to create a demand for them. If you’re selling scarves, for example, you might try to get a celebrity to wear one of your creations so the masses will covet it, and the only thing that suffers in this scenario is people’s wallets. But what if the products you’re peddling are vaccines and drugs?

One great way to convince people they need shots and medications is by scaring them. Most of us take our health very seriously and would do anything in our power to avoid suffering a disease unnecessarily, so when we hear about those scary disease outbreaks on the news, our first question is how we can avoid becoming victims ourselves. In many cases, this entails taking some medication or getting a vaccine. Where none exist, governments and other agencies are compelled to fork out more funding so they can be created.

With disease outbreaks being such a win-win scenario for Big Pharma, it’s not a stretch to imagine that they are staging some of them while exaggerating their prevalence and danger for the purposes of boosting business. The mainstream media, as we already know, is all too willing to serve as their mouthpiece, whether they’re showing frightening images of mass burials in remote African villages to scare us into getting shots or “helpfully” providing us with lists of local centers where we can line up with other nervous individuals to get injected with more chemicals that will supposedly keep us healthy.

Flu, measles, and Ebola outbreaks used to scare people

Take the flu for example. The CDC has a habit of overstating the dangers of the flu virus, exaggerating death counts so that people will get shots while completely ignoring the fact that many flu shots have a poor record when it comes to efficacy and are also dangerous. It has been proven that getting repeated flu shots year after year actually reduces your ability to fight the virus in the future, which will just give them even higher numbers of flu cases to use to scare others into getting shots and help secure more funding for Big Pharma to research new vaccines in a never-ending cycle where pharmaceutical companies win and people everywhere lose.

Consider also the Disneyland measles outbreak, which spurred calls for the public to get vaccinated against the disease, even though it often affects people who have been vaccinated and can even be caused by the vaccine itself. It also carries the risk of autism, but don’t worry, Big Pharma will then be able to sell you medications to deal with those symptoms, too!

As discussed by Mike Adams in his thought-provoking video lecture, The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks, many people in the vaccine industry believe that the strains of Ebola behind the recent outbreak in Africa were allowed to escape there so their epidemiological impact could be studied while creating a panic to generate billions of dollars in new pharma funding (which President Obama quickly approved).

The next time a disease outbreak takes over the mainstream media, take a moment to ask yourself who is going to profit from this, then seek out natural ways to protect yourself. (Click to Source)

Could This Christian Rehab’s Faith-Based Solution to Drug Crisis Change America?

drugs-coke

New York Teen Challenge announced today that it has proposed to the federal government and President Trump a faith-based initiative asking the federal government to recognize faith-based programs and establish a faith-based administration to allocate funding for “Beds and Buildings” to help combat the Opioid Crisis. Jimmy Jack, president and founder of New York Teen Challenge, along with New York Yankee baseball  legend Mariano Rivera and New York Teen Challenge State Director Ramon Rosa Jr., presented the proposal to President Trump. They were invited on the platform to join President Trump at the White House on Thursday, October 26th to hear the president’s declaration announcing the state of emergency regarding the opioid epidemic.

Rev. Jimmy Jack, is a 1985 graduate of Brooklyn Teen Challenge. He and 50 of his family members have all battled with addiction and have gone through the Teen Challenge Program. He truly is a passionate and inspiring leader who has experienced both sides of the drug culture.

After the president’s announcement, Jimmy, Mariano and Ray met with some of the president’s senior counselors and sat with Kellyanne Conway to discuss the details of the proposal.

About the Faith-Based Proposal

The proposal demonstrates that faith-based programs will help expand capacity and add thousands of beds to the existing secular inventory of residential treatment. The cost to rehabilitate 24,000 patients at a secular program would be $8,640,000,0005. A faith-based program like Teen Challenge can rescue the same number of people at a cost of only $840 million, a savings of $7,800,000,000 or 928 percent.

With only 3,678 clinical residential treatment centers, there are not enough long-term facilities in the US to solve the drug and opioid epidemic problem. It has gotten to the point where traditional secular rehabilitation centers are now strained and overburdened with the influx of those seeking help. In 2015, only 2.5 million people received treatment, this represents only 11 percent of the 23 million addicted population. With over $34 billion spent on treatment averaging $162,000 per addict. With most insurance companies only covering 28 days of residential treatment and only use the clinical model, the average addict is excluded from receiving the necessary long-term residential care.

A faith-based program like Teen Challenge will successfully recover 16,800 patients (verses 720 patients in a secular program) at a proven 70 percent success rate. The faith-based model heals 2,233 percent more patients. The return on investment for the federal government funds is noticeably higher, while at the same time providing proven results.

About Teen Challenge

Teen Challenge is a worldwide organization, established by David and Don Wilkerson in 1958, that has a proven track record of success. Teen Challenge is a faith-based, long-term residential treatment center for young men and women caught in the vicious cycle of drug and alcohol dependency. There are 1,600 Teen Challenge programs in 125 countries, providing 35,000 beds of residential rehabilitation treatment, and 261 of those centers are located in the United States. (Click to Source)

Ex-Witch: Satanists, Occultists Have Infiltrated the Christian Church

Ex-witch Beth Eckert says satanists and occultists have overrun the Christian church, corrupting it on nearly every level.

Believers in this day and age have turned a blind eye to sin, she says, and gone against Paul’s appeal in Romans 16.

“Upon closer examination of these churches, I think anyone can find one fault or another,” Eckert says. “There is no one church that is perfect for everyone. Church is an institution of man, and man is full of sin. There is no such thing as a perfect church, just a church that strives its best to follow Jesus Christ and spread the gospel message.”

But some churches have strayed away from this central message.

Watch the video to see if your church is one of them, and what you can do to help reverse course. (Click to Source)

Massive Earthquake Strikes Iraq As Star Of Bethlehem Rises Over Israel

venus-jupiter

A massive 7.3 magnitude earthquake has just struck Halabjah, Iraq, just miles from the Iraqi/Iranian border as the long-expected Jupiter-Venus conjunction is rising over Israel and the Middle East.  Details are coming out slowly, but at this time we can report that at least 400 have been killed and over 6,500 injured in the devastating earthquake.  It was the most powerful earthquake in the entire Middle East in five years, and the most powerful earthquake in Iraq in recorded history.

This is happening while a very close conjunction of Jupiter and Venus is rising over the Middle East early Monday morning.  The conjunction follows a number of amazing astronomical occurrences that led up to what many have come to call the Revelation 12 Sign.  This conjunction on Monday is reminiscent of a similar conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2 BC that many scholars contend was the single best candidate for the Star of Bethlehem at the birth of Christ.

Perhaps even bigger news is afoot in Israel as news is breaking that a soon-to-be-revealed Middle East peace plan designed by the Trump Administration has won the backing of Saudi Arabia and the Saudis are demanding that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas either agree to the peace plan once revealed or resign.  The Palestinians are sending signals that they may be caving to Saudi demands.

UPDATE: 4 hours and 5 minutes after the earthquake in Iraq, a large 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck Japan, which was followed 4 hours and 4 minutes later by an even larger 6.5 magnitude quake in Jaco, Costa Rica (source).   (Click to Source)
