Think Of The Homeless

There are over 30 million Americans who live on the streets of our nation. Can you consider giving something to a shelter near you? Your fellow human beings need socks because they walk everywhere. Food and shelter are great too, if they will take them. So please give.

Reviews by Hubie Goode: Ignoring Israel Part 7

Mount of Olives

Ignoring Israel

Part 7: Israel and Water

There is a natural four hundred meter drop between the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and the lowest spot on Earth which the Dead Sea occupies. There are those who have suggested the exploitation of this natural drop for the creation of hydroelectric power. If these two bodies of water were connected, say for instance by construction, then this power would not only supply the area with electricity but it would also provide added water for overwhelming the salt and dry sand of the area. The idea is a beneficial one, but not necessarily in line with Ezekial’s vision of the healing of the area.

If one remembers the Dead Sea scrolls, the ancient parchments that were discovered in a cave after centuries of untouched solitude, these documents were found in an area called the Qumran. The Essenes lived here prior to the destruction of the Temple in 70 A. D. by the Romans, a point we have already covered here. This is the area where a huge underground water source was found, it is about three miles around and has millions of cubit meters of water. Small pools of fresh water run all along the northern edges of the Dead Sea, apparently they originate from this underground water source. But that’s not all prophecy referred to....

Zechariah refers to a third water source that is to appear during the return of Christ.

Zechariah 14:4

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem in the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

When Christ ascended into heaven over 1,900 years ago, he led his followers out to Bethany, a small town on the back side of this mountain. In Acts 1:11 the apostles saw two men dressed in white who told them that, as they had seen him leave, he would also return. His leaving happened from the Mount of Olives and he will also return to the Mount of Olives. The mountain will split in half and a hidden water source from under the ground will erupt, half of it heading toward the Mediterranean and half toward the Dead Sea. (Zechariah 14:8)

Though the term “living waters” is used, there are two facts that make this prophecy a literal moment and not just a spiritual one. There has been discovered a fault line that runs from the surrounding areas of Jerusalem and includes the Mount of Olives. There are places in the land where no buildings can be erected due to the inevitable destruction should an earthquake occur.

These fault lines also run through what we know as the Valley of Armageddon. This two hundred mile site is to be a battle field during the final war of mankind. The entire Dead Sea region was also formed long ago by earthquake activity. Long fault lines run parallel to the length of the sea on both sides, the Jordanian and the Israeli sides. With all this fault line potential, it is not hard to see how waters could literally flow all over the land if the ground were broken and divided up over the top of underground waters.

According to Zechariah, at the return of Christ with the armies of heaven, which will land on the Mount of Olives, a great valley will be created by the splitting of the mountain. With the Dead Sea being 1,300 feet below sea level, the waters that will gush forth will run rapidly toward the Dead Sea and overflow the northern section of the sea with waters that may go back to the time of creation. There could be so much water due to all this shifting land mass, that the Dead Sea will be engulfed and obliterated by a much, much larger water source that can  contain “Pacific Rim” quantities of sea life.

Man made fish ponds are already in the area selling “Dead Sea fish”. These ponds come from water bleeding out of the underground lake. The future of the healing of the Dead Sea is already coming to pass as we see these types of things become more and more prevalent. People in Israel know about this underground spring, and they already benefit from it. But how much does the world at large realize the prophecy that is unfolding? How much of this is revealed in any other source of so called future predictions? In the mid 1980’s, this area was desolate with hardly any vegetation. It had been that way for thousands of years. We now have a springing forth of oasis areas in the desert where just 25 years ago, there was only barren land.

This is exactly what the prophets of the Bible said would happen before the arrival of the Messiah.
The Puritans

The American Water

In Zechariah the word of God promises that Israel will become an unavoidable irritation to the entire world, and that those who come against her in order to remove this irritation, will be broken to pieces as a result. (Zechariah 12:2-3)

Few realize, as the founding fathers of America did, that there is a unique connection between America and the nation of Israel. As her future final supporter, this fact will become painfully clear as time in the near future rolls by. Many around the world call America prudish, especially the Europeans, and this reference leads back to those who were called the Puritans. The Puritans felt that they themselves were fellow Jewish travellers. Their departure from England to start a new life in the area we know of as New England, as being akin to the Exodus from Egypt, which says a lot about the soul of Europe and where it has headed into our own day. The federal seal of the United States would in fact become the image of the Exodus of Israel from Egypt. Descendants of those Puritans fired the shot heard round the world that lead to the establishment of America and the original 13 states.
Ben Frankin's Seal

God instructed Israel that there was to be but ONE LAW for the people, just as the Mayflower compact settled the issue and held that there be one law for the people. That law was based on what Moses had written down in the Torah. John Endicott, a Puritan founder, wanted to make the Law of Moses the official law of Massachusetts.

Many of these Puritan leaders were fluent in the Hebrew language, not only in the Kings English. Many early universities taught Hebrew as a regular course, and the school insignias had much Hebrew imagery. People of the time hated Britain so much that they considered making Hebrew the national language. Wouldn’t that be something if that were the case today?

Primary components of a nation are law, language and land. Few people know that the boundaries and shape of the original 13 states resemble the nation of Israel. Early America had a major river to the East and an Ocean to the West, Israel had an ocean to the west and a major river to the East. Both nations came out of other nations. Both crossed the water into a new land. Both ran over the natives who lived there. National documents and morals are both based on scripture. Both were divided north and south during national conflict. In Israel the wars were usually won by the south and not the north. Both have and have had problems with Babylon and Iraq.

There are many more examples, but it is clear that America and Israel have a spiritual link. Few realize how this connection plays out in real life. For instance, there are two events that parallel in an interesting manner: Hurricane Katrina and the destruction of New Orleans, and also incidents of the Gaza strip.

The 9th of the month of AV is a date synonymous with destruction and defeat. This date, like many amazing dates that correspond to historical events in the Jewish calendar, is the anniversary of many events that Israelis keep an historic eye on. On this date: the scouts sent by Moses returned with an unfavorable report; Israel was sentenced to forty years of wandering; the first temple was destroyed by the Babylonians; the second temple was destroyed by the Romans; Jews were expelled by Spain in 1492. Other Jewish calendar dates are just like this, though others may be of victory, events of victory and joy can be spread out over hundreds of years and yet happen all on the same date. Do you know of any other nation on the Earth that has that kind of undeniable evidence of speciality? I mean, come on, both Temples destroyed on the same date hundreds of year apart?

The 9th of Av is thought to be the worst of these kinds of dates. The 17th of Tammuz is the second worst, and shares the same weird historical happenings. On this date, Moses broke the tablets of the law; the Romans breached the walls of the second Temple. With such strong traditional record keeping from generation to generation, how can there be argument as to the calendar length of our world as we know it? Europe, with its lost soul, has tried for a long time now to educate us as to there being millions of years of our world, despite the presence of a nation like Israel. They, too, in their striving to be intellectually superior, ignore Israel at their own peril.

The Gregorian calendar date of July 4th, 1776, was the date of America’s Declaration of Independence. This is considered a bright spot on this historic day on the Jewish calendar, and the 9th of Av also has a corresponding bright spot. It is the day that Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue to find the New World. Israel and America appear to be joined at the hip. Whatever happens to Israel also happens to America.

When Israeli settlers were forced from their homes and out into the streets in an attempt to clear the Gaza strip during America’s pressuring of the Israeli government to make way for others to occupy the land, many of those deposed were simply left with nothing and nowhere to go. It was Israeli forces themselves that removed these people from their homes and land, at the urgence of America and it occurred on the 9th of Av.
New Orleans flooded with Katrina waters

At the same time, Hurricane Katrina was forming in the Gulf Coast. The rest is history as the poorly built levies failed to keep the waters of Lake Pontchartrain from devastating the entire area. An area, by the way which yours truly grew up in, and an area which still to this day, some six years later, has yet to be re-seeded and re-built. It is still a disaster area. Many citizens were disposed from their homes with no idea where they were going to live or work, in much the same way as those in the Gaza strip.
The Day the Music Died

Many of the police in the area simply walked out of the debacle and several are on trail right at this moment for having been going around neighborhoods shooting innocent hurricane victims without provocation. The police, like the Israeli forces, assaulted their own. (allegedly at this point)  How many of us here in America lost faith in our government and its ability to serve the populace, much as many in Israel took umbrage at the government for disposing them. And don’t get me started on the FEMA camps that have been built around America, standing silent and empty as they await SOMETHING, surrounded by barbed wire.

Want more? Gaza and New Orleans are on the coast, Gaza and New Orleans are linked to ports, Gaza and New Orleans people lost their homes and work, Gaza and New Orleans people evacuated to their roofs, Gaza and New Orleans people were taken out in buses, Gaza and New Orleans people fought troops and police, Gaza and New Orleans people were relocated, Gaza and New Orleans people were refugees, Gaza and New Orleans buildings were torn down or destroyed, Gaza and New Orleans people were removed from cemeteries.

more on this next time
