So Little Time And So Much To Do!

George Whitten2 90x115by George Whitten

1 Cor. 15:51-54 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: for the trumpet will sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory."

Last night began the Biblical festival of Rosh Ha Shana. What’s interesting about Rosh Ha Shana (the Jewish celebration of the New Year), is that it doesn’t fall on the first day of the first month. It actually falls on the first day of the seventh month! It’s difficult for outsiders to understand this concept, but if we study how the Jewish year begins and how God is outlining this age according to the Jewish feasts it all makes sense. The first month of the Jewish year begins with Passover. Two thousand years ago, the new age began with the crucifixion of Yeshua (Jesus) on the Cross on Passover! Next, Messiah rose from the dead precisely on day of the celebration of first fruits. Then, fifty days later, the Feast of Shavout (Pentecost) began the celebration of the harvest season. This day marked the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the beginnings of the first harvest right here in Jerusalem as three thousand souls came into the kingdom!

Europe Is Finished

Yes, finished.

It never ceases to amaze me how dumb sophisticates can be, particularly when it comes to Israel and the Jews. History is littered with the wreckage of civilizations that thought it was expedient to either oppress the Jews, or be indifferent to their plight.

Now comes word that Greek announces the European Union might ban goods made in the “settlements.” Once again, it’s not hard to hear them hiss when they say “sssssssettlements.”

There are gleaming Jewish communities throughout the land of Israel—although much of Judea/Samaria (international community: the “West Bank”) is still empty. In the modern era’s inversion of the truth, calling good evil and evil good, Israel is “racist” when it comes to dealing with the Palestinians. Even though the ultimate racism is preventing Jews from living wherever they want. No one tells a person from Oman that he can’t live somewhere.
