Shocked by the Bible

WND failed to read Beyond Babylon

WorldNetDaily reports:
"Shocked by the Bible" is jam-packed with fantastic facts no one has dared to publish for general audiences.

Apparently WND and Joe Kovacs failed to read Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall. Regardless, it's great to see others help spread the Word! Kudos to Kovacs!

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall

Beyond Babylon fulfills the need to proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom of God while emphasizing a warning to the world; it includes the truth about our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities; about God's Sabbath and Holy Days versus Satan's Sunday and pagan holidays; about Israel's demise and Europe's rise -- these are foundational truths.

Beyond Babylon builds upon that sure foundation by pointing out that it's the sorcerer-pope, the false prophet, who presents Europe's imminent leader as the Savior of "Christian Western Civilization;" he'll perform miracles in his presence urging Europe to remodel themselves after the "Holy Roman Empire" (Rev. 13:14). Together they'll create a counterfeit Kingdom of God.

Beyond Babylon also explains -- FOR THE FIRST TIME -- why there are two witnesses, what their mission and purpose is, why they're stationed in Jerusalem and how they fulfill the Elijah role.

Kibbutz Regavim

I was part of the work-study program at Kibbutz Regavim in 1990, participating in another ulpan (intensive Hebrew course), continuing my Hebrew classes started at Kibbutz Sdot Yam.

The following are pictures of volunteers, students, kibbutzniks, Arabs who worked in the factories at Regavim and invited the volunteers to their village of Kfar Kara and volunteer trips to Rosh Hanikra (on the border of Lebanon) and Akko. We enjoyed volunteers from Germany, Holland, England, France, Turkey, Ireland, South Africa, the United States, etc.

Openly Zionist

Christian Zionist Orde Wingate

Re: George W. Bush’s True Legacy

That you are openly Zionist (Your writings and blog) Leaves me with some intuitive doubts. When a non Jew is holier than Herzl the question comes up Why? It isn’t love for the Jews ( if yes what type of Jew are you referring to?) and except for some geographical sites you probably don’t care much about the Land, O yes the Bible told you so, Right?

I’m sure Christian Zionist Orde Wingate heard such snide comments too, as he lived in Eretz Yisrael (promised to all Twelve Tribes of Israel) and did all he could to help the Jews and didn’t permit the prejudice of some to hinder his God-given purpose.

Christian Zionist Orde Wingate respected Jews but recognized Joseph isn’t Jewish and that family fact, that historical/biblical detail, didn’t disturb those Jews around him with “intuitive doubts,” any more than those Jews on the 8 kibbutzim I’ve lived on (see From Toledo to Jerusalem) or my Torah-observant friends throughout Israel had any problem with my understanding of the Hebrew roots and Israelite origins of the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples, and the Israeli leaders didn’t lose sleep over the fact that Herbert W. Armstrong believed the same with whom they met time and again, including former Mayor Teddy Kollek even presenting him (at a banquet in his honor in Jerusalem) with an Israeli sculpture of David (since Kollek knew Armstrong considered himself a scion of David through the British Royal Family).

German-American Israelites?

Is that why you think that YHWH is Odin?
I'm not a confused Roman Catholic cult member who indulges in mixing and matching paganism with some biblical truths to mislead the masses and entice the simple. Just look at the deceptive history of the accursed Roman Catholic Cult with its whitewash of Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Sunday and other pagan hollow daze. Shame, shame.

No wonder the bloody Vatican has always declared war on the Jews and the Sabbath-keeping Church of God for exposing their demonic replacement theology that would substitute baptized paganism for the biblical Sabbath and festivals Yeshua, the Prophets, the Apostles, the early Church of God with its converted Jews, Israelites and Gentiles faithfully kept, and soon the whole world will learn to observe also when Rome and its mass deception of a Gentilized Jesus, a counterfeit Christianity, another gospel, a different spirit, are history.

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent

Fort Meigs, Perrysburg, Ohio

This past weekend I went with a friend visiting from Seattle, Washington to Fort Meigs, Perrysburg, Ohio on the banks of the Maumee River. I haven't been there in years and the renovations are spectacular and the museum magnificent! Definitely a place to take family and friends.

My guest said he hadn't realized how important Ohio was in the history of our country and how closely connected Ohio was with the War of 1812.

We clearly saw how Manifest Destiny was played out here, as we are both firm believers in it understanding the *Hebrew roots and Israelite origins of the Anglo-Saxon-Celts and White peoples of Northwestern Europe as faithfully taught by Herbert W. Armstrong. We found a few references to Manifest Destiny, but wish it were emphasized more as it is in the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum I recently visited in Oklahoma City.

Reading some of the posted private accounts of our Ohio pioneers, of our soldiers, and what they had to go through, what privations, cold and ice and water and battles, simply is unbelievable but true! How soft we are today, and how ungrateful too many Americans are for those who cleared the way and made it possible for us to get where we are today. I'm glad some of my ancestors, like Ohio pioneer John Mervin, were here when this area was known as the Black Swamp and persevered and prospered.

We enjoyed a conversation with a pretty red-haired young lady in pioneer dress (with bright blue eyes) at the Quartermaster building who was ready to answer our questions and explained how near to war Michigan and Ohio were over our boundaries and how Michigan had included sections of Toledo and Maumee...

*The Plain Truth about the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel

The Plain Truth About British Israelism

What is British Israelism and is it Biblical?

What follows are some excerpts from and information from the Ohio Historical Society:

The War of 1812 was fought over free trade, sailor's rights and to decide once and for all who would control the "western country." Great Britain was stopping American merchant ships on the Atlantic Ocean, seizing their cargo and impressing sailors into the Royal Navy. In response, the United States declared war on June 18, 1812. Fort Meigs stood at the center of American military operations in the Northwest Territory. Between June, 1812 and February, 1813, the United States lost Fort Mackinac and Fort Detroit in the Michigan Territory and Fort Dearborn in the Illinois Territory, as well as a major defeat at the Battle of the River Raisin in Michigan. Only Fort Wayne, in the Indiana Territory, withstood British attack.

General William Henry Harrison established a fort on the south side of the Maumee River on February 2, 1813. The fort was to serve as a temporary supply depot and staging area for an invasion of Canada. Named for the Governor of Ohio, Return Jonathan Meigs, the garrison was a home for more than 2,000 men comprised of U.S. regulars and militia from Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

When the enemy laid siege to Fort Meigs on May 1, 1813, they found General Harrison ready. With a strong fort, 1,200 troops, and twenty to thirty pieces of artillery, the garrison dug in with the knowledge that reinforcements were on the way. The bombardment ended after four days, when a troop of Kentucky militia arrived to reinforce Fort Meigs. On May 9, the enemy lifted the siege and returned to Canada. The Indians who had accompanied the British during the siege were bitterly disappointed by their failure to take the fort.

In July, 1813, the British attempted to appease their allies by again besieging Fort Meigs. The Indians staged a mock battle to lure the garrison out. The Americans, however, saw through the ploy. After the failed siege attempt, the British moved on to Fort Stephenson, where Fremont, Ohio stands today. That attack also failed, causing heavy British losses and forcing their retreat to Canada.

On September 10, 1813, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry defeated a British naval force on Lake Erie, giving the United States the upper hand in the Northwest. Harrison transferred all but 100 men from Fort Meigs north to Canada and ordered the fort dismantled. In its place, a small, square stockade was constructed to serve as a supply base and to protect the Maumee rapids.

With Harrison's victory at the Battle of the Thames in October, 1813, the war in the Northwest was all but over. Peace came in December, 1814 with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent and in May, 1815 the United States formally abandoned Fort Meigs. Shortly after it was abandoned, Fort Meigs burned to the ground, either by the military or by careless squatters.

The site was preserved by the Hayes family who purchased the land and used it for grazing cattle. In 1840, William Henry Harrison returned to the site to hold a rally during his successful run for the Presidency.

In 1908 the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Civil War veterans, held a reunion in Toledo, Ohio. To commemorate their arrival, and to honor the memory of the soldiers who served at Fort Meigs, a monument was erected on the site.

The fort was reconstructed by the Ohio Historical Society and was opened in 1974. Since then, the site has seen thousands of visitors and continues to fulfill its charge to educate the public.
