Chief Rabbi Pollutes Jerusalem

UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE!

Israel's Ashkenazi chief rabbi, Yonah Metzger, has met with the Dalai Lama of Tibet (an alleged Buddhist god) and Israel National News reports that Metzger "suggested that representatives of the world's religions establish a United Nations in Jerusalem, representing religions instead of nations, like the UN currently based in New York.

"Instead of planning for nuclear war and buying tanks and fighter jets, it will invest in peace." Apparently a peace apart from the biblical blueprint, without proper repentance, and based upon misguided human efforts easily manipulated for political purposes.

Has the chief rabbi gone mad? Is Rabbi Metzger now a rabid meshuggah? Has God hardened his heart against Jerusalem and Israel to invite such disaster? Isn't the rabbi aware of the prophecies that warn about the world's evil eye upon Jerusalem, and how they covet the Temple Mount? What next, a rush visit by the Bavarian pope to vie for his attention seeking to gain a better position in the "New Jerusalem"?

Doesn't Yonah Metzger know he should be promoting the Third Temple, a biblical House of Prayer for All Nations interested in learning about the God of Jacob, learning Torah and repenting of idolatrous traditions - not for arriving to teach foreign ideas or bring strange ways to the Holy Land in the perverse spirit of Babylon.

Such nations must humble themselves to come up to Jerusalem to celebrate Sukkot (Festival of Tabernacles) -- not to engage in some interfaith orgy! The unacceptable alternative of the proposed religious UN, a modern Tower of Babel, must be condemned and rejected as an entirely unclean idea, a diabolical grand design, that would pollute the Holy City with the arrival of their Grand Master, a sorcerer-magician, a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Has Metzger gone over to the other side, seduced by the Babylonian Catholic Church (with its treacherous agents like David Rosen) that aims on crowing their universal king on Mt. Zion? Isn't he opening up the floodgates of hell by summoning "The World Council of Religious Leaders" to take up wicked residence in Jerusalem, to make the City of the Great King their unholy headquarters, invoking UN Resolution 181? Are they making alliances with alien organizations like United Religions Initiative that appear like light-bringers but hide a spiritual darkness that Nimrod would revel in?

This nightmare in the making brings Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion's prediction of January 16, 1962 to mind: "...With the exception of the USSR as a federated Eurasian state, all other continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished, and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a Shrine of the Prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah." (emphasis mine)

Isaiah didn't prophecy of any such godless scheme that is a dangerous counterfeit of the Temple of God -- not a "shrine of the prophets." How humanist, yet undoubtedly appealing as a pretty platitude and harmless plan to interfaith fools.

The prophet Daniel does expose the Third Temple will be polluted by Europe's wannabe divine emperor until King Messiah returns from Heaven (in full view of all mankind) and destroys such demonic activities, purifies Jerusalem and cleanses the Temple!

E.U. taken to task by two witnesses

The Muslim menace will soon be history after the EU rapid response to their nuclear jihad settles them into the dust of Arabia. The greater threat to world peace will be the German-Jesuit Europe that two witnesses from Jerusalem will boldly testify against in the spirit of Elijah against Ahab and Jezebel (Catholic Church and State).

"A terrible darkness has fallen upon us, but we must not surrender to it. We shall lift lamps of courage and find our way through to the morning." - a quote made in 1942 by a member of the French Resistance movement

Two Witnesses Testify Against Europe

Two controversial figures, referred to in the Book of Revelation as two witnesses, two olive trees, two candlesticks and two prophets, will boldly declare GOD'S JUDGMENTS and proclaim the LORD'S CONTROVERSY (Micah 3:8; 6:1-2), delivering a BLISTERING MESSAGE and a SCORCHING CONDEMNATION - just before NUCLEAR FIRE AND BRIMSTONE RAINS DOWN upon those who've rejected GOD'S ULTIMATUM (Isaiah 41:27; 30:27)!

The wise will hear this THUNDER and take shelter (Revelation 10; Proverbs 27:12). It's been said that history repeats itself because nobody listened the first time. Who's listening today? Does anybody care? THE MESSAGE IS LOUD AND CLEAR! Another HOLOCAUST is coming! That warning must roar from Jerusalem! That's the sensitive location where God will spark a NATIONAL DEBATE and ignite an INTERNATIONAL CONTROVERSY! (Jeremiah 15:10; Revelation 11:10).

It'll shock the Jews and anger the Germans! Both will immediately want to stop such "incitement" - calling it fear-mongering and racist - but such persecution will only fan the flames of this BURNING ISSUE (Isaiah 54:15-16)! God's going to make sure that everybody - from the least to the greatest - has had a chance to HEAR AND HEED (Jeremiah 5:4-5).

"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18). The historical precedent's been set. We're not an exception or invincible (Luke 13:3). Europe's already making preparations while we're on our deathbed: victims of tradition. THE UNITED STATES IS GOING TO FOLD, THE BRITISH COMMONWEALTH'S GOING INTO CAPTIVITY, AND ISRAEL'S GOING TO BE OCCUPIED!

Prior to Europe's invasion and occupation of the State of Israel, God will have stationed two men, especially trained for this mission, in Jerusalem. They're to serve notice that Jerusalem and Israel belong to GOD! These two men are witnesses that God will again choose Jerusalem. They won't rest until Zion fulfills her calling (Isaiah 62:6-7). They can foresee the future so clearly, it's as good as done for them (Romans 4:17). Since they know for sure what's going to happen, they can give an accurate forecast!

Why are there two of them? For several reasons: God's Law requires two or three witnesses to testify before the judge can pass sentence; they're Israel's eyes, to enlighten and help them see what's going on; and THEY REPRESENT GOD'S CHURCH AND STATE.

The prophet Zechariah first mentions these two. He saw them portrayed as two olive trees, standing next to a golden menorah, one on each side. When he questioned God's angel as to what this all meant, he was told: "These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth" (Zechariah 4:14).

It's understood that the menorah represents Israel - who's yet to become a "light to all nations." Today Israel's national symbol is this very candlestick with its two olive branches.

Ancient Israel only had two anointed positions: Priest and King. They were anointed with olive oil, symbolic of God's Holy Spirit, before taking office (Exodus 30: 30). It was a simple gesture asking for God's merciful guidance, and a humble request for Heaven's inspiration (I Samuel 16:13).

God reveals that His men are going to be on active duty for three and a half years. Their mission coincides with Jerusalem's Gentile occupation. They'll witness the atrocities committed against our people, and fast and pray. Therefore, the formal dinners and black-tie days are gone. God's prophets will be in mourning and wearing black: burlap!

Revelation 11:4 declares: "These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth." They stand at attention before God, ready and willing to carry out His every command. They're filled with the Holy Spirit and share their LIGHT of understanding with captive Israel (Zechariah 4:12). They'll give it all they've got, emptying themselves, to try and impart God's vision and spiritual insight.

Obviously, they're testifying against Europe's crimes against humanity, because the Beast wants them dead! They warn Europe their Day of reckoning is near and they thereby encourage Israel to never fear!

The prophet Malachi assures us: "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6).

Who in the Bible is most prominent before the return of Jesus Christ? In the Old Testament we find Elijah. In the New Testament we're introduced to the the Two Witnesses. They're both just before the awesome DAY OF THE LORD - the time when God directly intervenes with the SEVEN LAST PLAGUES!

Israel's two representatives will present their case from Jerusalem. They'll confront Europe's pope and wannabe divine emperor with the facts and hold them personally responsible for Europe's atrocities. God's two witnesses will take the stand and testify against Europe's cruel and unusual punishment inflicted upon our people. They'll charge the Beast and False Prophet with murder, treason, and extortion!

Israel's two anointed positions were priest and king. The priest tribe was Levi and the scepter tribe was Judah. Therefore, one of Israel's representatives will hail from the Royal House of David (Judah), and the other will join him as an assistant, from Aaron's line (Levi). Both will be deeply converted individuals from God's one and only true Church. They represent God's Church and State, like Moses and Aaron, against Satan's counterfeit Church and State!

"Elijah" will vigorously oppose Europe's evil empire and speak out against its corrupt system of government and religion! He'll denounce those Israelite nations in Europe who will have merged their markets with Babylon's daughter. Ahab (pagan Israelites) and Jezebel (the Catholic Church) will have to contend with Elijah again! Elijah's successor was promised a double portion of God's Holy Spirit: it'll be shared between the Two Witnesses!

Catholicism: Lesser of Two Evils?

Europe swings. Hardcore proof: the EU overwhelmingly passed a resolution last month against "Homophobia in Europe."

The liberals are dancing in the streets and the atmosphere is gay - - unless you happen to dare disagree, as Don Feder exposes in "HOMOPHOBIA," DEMOGRAPHIC DECLINE, ISLAMIC IMMIGRATION AND THE EUROPEAN DEATH WISH, stating: "Its anti-homophobia campaign is just the latest example of Europe's rejection of Judeo-Christian morality."

Europe swings from one extreme to the other. Still smarting from a history subject to the rigid rule of those under the influence of the Vatican, the Europeans have gone too far in denying the leading role that professing Christianity has played upon their stage.

The free-for-all Europeans have stubbornly refused to even acknowledge their Catholic roots with a nod within their proposed Constitution; Roots that Pope John Paul II pleaded with them to remember from Santiago and elsewhere. How can such dishonest European leaders face the daunting challenges that loom just ahead? Sound minds and strong character is required, a willingness to face harsh reality and not just powder it away with pretty platitudes.

What will strike the "fear of God" in Europe's dark and deceitful heart? What wonders can the Bavarian pope perform to have the masses eating out of his hand again? Will a nuclear Iran or belligerent Egypt (suffering a coup) crash the party and awaken the living dead or has Europe become reprobate without a conscience or a future?

Is pagan Europa capable of becoming a re-converted continent? With the double-edged sword of Islam and secularism ready to slit their throat, will the wayward EU act in time with a cool head and let logic and biblical reason prevail?

Must the European Union choose between Catholicism and hedonism? Secularism certainly couldn't save them because the ethnic Europeans would die out or be vastly outnumbered by the armies of the immigrants with their jihad of reproduction. Empty secularism could never withstand the drive and determination of the foreign bodies who would strip them of their carnal liberties. Will Europe consider Catholicism the lesser of two evils when they realize the writing is on the wall and they must choose? After all, it's a familiar face and not that of a stranger.

Mr. Feder's piercing piece concluded: "The book Europe's intelligentsia has rejected holds the key. In it, God says to Israel: 'I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.'"

What many Northwestern Europeans fail to recognize is their Hebrew roots, their Israelite origin, and that the Book they should go by doesn't sanction Islam or Catholicism but warns against both! There is an alternative way that Herbert Armstrong, ambassador for world peace without political portfolio, presented before many of their heads of state.

If Europe misses this opportunity of a lifetime to get it right, to remember their biblical roots and responsibilities, they'll soon fall under the spell of Germany and the Jesuits and swing far right again: "...the new Europe - a rough beast slouching toward Brussels..." is about to get struck by lightning -- transformed into a bloodthirsty beast bowing before Berlin.

UN to punish "blasphemers?"

The European Observer reports Solana warns against EU-muslim cartoon rift. Doesn't the EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana recognize the rift was already there and that the riotous cartoon episodes merely exposed it?


Solana: "We should not allow the latest developments to separate us"
(Photo: Austrian EU Presidency)

What is more ominous is how such inexcusable behavior of militant Muslims demanding Christian Western civilization submit to their Muslim law and primitive attitudes is now being abused as a pretext to create UN texts against blasphemy!

Javier Solana met in Saudi Arabia with the leader of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu. Hypocritically, Saudi Arabia is guilty of state-sponsored terrorism as Sheik Professor Abdul Hadi Palazzi has stated many times. Yet the Muslim terrorists want to focus on the alleged speck in the eye of the West while ignoring the log in their own evil eye!

The corrupt OIC is pressuring the occultic United Nations to adopt a reference against blasphemy in the tenets of a new human rights body. Who will control such a new body and possess the dark powers to punish real or imagined offenders? Another inquisition on the way? The UN to police "blasphemers?" What beast dare they unleash with such dangerous proposals?

What next? Will the UN forge a policy to demand economic unity at the expense of personal freedom and national sovereignty? Sounds like a chilling description of a politico-religious power foretold long ago:

Revelation 13:16-18
16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.


Mr. Solana stated, "We are working on some ideas. I cannot be very precise, but we are working on some ideas that maybe it is possible to get through," according to Reuters.

Deutsche Welle quotes Cristina Gallach, Mr. Solana's spokeswoman, as saying, "They want mechanisms to guarantee this is not repeated and we should be able to find it in UN conventions on human rights."

Beyond Babylon: Read it yet?



Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is destined to become a national debate and an international controversy because it dares to speak the plain truth in a world of lies!

Beyond Babylon
Introduction

Beyond Babylon
Chapter One

Survival Guaranteed!

The DEVASTATION unleashed against America and her British allies was without precedent. Destruction was everywhere and a body count impossible. The catastrophe was beyond calculation.

Europe - gripped with a messianic furor - justified this mass destruction of the body to "save the soul." Besides, they had the blessing of the pope. His white robes were stained with the blood of many martyrs.

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 2

Why National Defeat?

Why are we in mortal danger? Why will the American, British and Jewish people SUFFER national defeat? How could Europe ever turn against us?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 3

Truth or Consequences

As global tensions increase, and threats of confrontation escalate, we might very well wonder whether humanity will survive. Unless there’s a GOD to intervene, we have a bleak future indeed: a DEAD PLANET! Will earth become a nuclear fireball? Will charred bones - aftermath of unleashed atomic fires - and the smoldering ruins of a suicidal civilization be all that’s left?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 4

Victims of Tradition

Whenever our behavior gets out of control, God lets us loose control! When we’re held hostage to bad habits, and refuse to let them go, we go into captivity! A national lack of discipline results in God sending corrective punishment! Then we wake up and get with it, and beg God to save us. The whole purpose is to bring us to our knees and senses.

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 5

Europe's Fate

What’s going to happen to Europe? We know what’s going to happen to the American and British peoples, as well as to our Jewish brethren. The coming WORLD CRISIS is prophesied to fall especially hard on them. Why?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 6

Jesus and the Jews

Why don't the Jews accept Jesus?" I've been asked that so many times. My usual reply? "Why haven't the Christians?" At least the Jews are waiting for the proper imperial restoration. The Messiah's coming to sit on DAVID'S THRONE - not Caesar's or "St. Peter's." The Anointed One's going to rule from JERUSALEM - not Rome!

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 7

Elijah's Key Role

Israel's about to host the greatest showdown on earth! A spiritual conflict of interests will create such a scene in Jerusalem that the whole world will watch! Zion will be an arena of prophets and sorcerers, warriors and kings! The forces of good and evil are set to duel: the sons of light will battle the sons of darkness, and truth will confront error head-on!

Truth

"All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed; and
Third, it is accepted as self-evident."
-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

The Intelligence Summit

Greetings to one and all, in the name and memory of Herbert W. Armstrong who visited and addressed many leaders of the nations you represent here today. Mr. Armstrong, ambassador for world peace without political portfolio, was a man sent by the Great Creator God (who made all men and determined the boundaries and languages of each nation) to deliver a bittersweet message.

I shall also deliver that bittersweet message, standing before you, facing the nations, dressed in a black t shirt, jeans and sackcloth -- not your typical attire for such important affairs, but these are not normal times and business as usual will soon be history, as you all very much know and express your concern by gathering here in the United States of America to address these issues that threaten all mankind.

The world waits with bated breath to hear the recording of the former tyrant Saddam Hussein and questions whether they will confirm his weapons of mass destruction program and justify President George W. Bush's decision to launch his preemptive attack against belligerent Iraq. Regardless, our American troops have already been dispatched, they have bravely fought and deposed the proud dictator who imagined himself a modern Nebuchadnezzar driven to destroy the Jews, and free elections have now been held in that liberated country - not that democracy alone is the message God has ordained our British-Israelite nations to spread. But I share with you a greater recording that will directly affect each and every one of you, and trouble your nations and bring mankind to the brink of extinction unless that "Strong Unseen Hand from Someplace" intervenes and saves us from ourselves.

From reading Ryan Mauro's book, Death to America: The Unreported Battle of Iraq -- it was impressed upon my mind how mad some Muslims are driven by the jinns of jihad and insanely seek to wreak havoc and destruction upon all the world who rejects their false vision. I gladly testify that not all Muslims share their perverted passion, as is evident in noble men like Sheik Abdul Hadi Palazzi of Rome, Italy.

However, I do solemnly affirm that such spiritual sickness does not only afflict the Muslim world, but that such religious fanaticism is again to rear its ugly head in blood-soaked Europe. Europe's rapid response to jihad will be a new crusade that will slaughter both Arabs and Jews and every Christian who doesn't agree with the Roman Catholic Church!

The Prophet Daniel records some great provocation, an Islamic confederation or network of sorts that is soon to butt heads with Catholic Europe (Daniel 11:40-45), resulting in a blitzkrieg operation that will strike them dead in the Middle East, taking out countries like Egypt and subduing Libya and Ethiopia and undoubtedly overwhelming Iran.

That is good news. Europe -- not America -- will neutralize the Nazi-Muslim threat. However, the bad news is that it will bring out the beast in Europe and only whet their appetite for more blood. Europe will morph into the final revival of the unholy Roman Empire of the German Nation, and demand Jerusalem become an "international city," as called for by the accursed UN Resolution 181. The Germans and Jesuits have been the major influence behind this strategic move and have their evil eyes on the prize of Jerusalem, especially the coveted Temple Mount.

The whole world has been focusing on Islamic terrorism, as is understandable, but the greatest threat to world peace is the German-dominated European Union! The United States has foolishly been helping to create such a Frankenstein Monster that will brutally betray both the American, British and Jewish peoples. Herbert W. Armstrong warned of this clear and present danger -- as an early warning system -- for years. The weapons of mass destruction that the increasingly fascist EU possess will unleash nuclear terror upon our major cities and rain down death and destruction upon us and those who survive will suffer deportation due to our idolatry and immorality.

These biblical warnings, based upon reliable information obtained from Daniel and the Book of Revelation, are the greatest recording all mankind must hear and heed -- if we're to be spared from WWIII. I'm here to announce this plain truth as a witness and a warning and share it within Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall. What you do with it is between you and your Maker, but I encourage you to take it seriously and choose life and help save your respective nations.

Germany has nuclear weapons

Germany already has a nuclear arsenal and is getting ready to come out of their nuclear closet. Germany promised not to develop nuclear weapons as long as the United States and NATO protected them, as part of their deceptive Grand Design.

Would Germany tolerate such a vulnerable position? Never! Hitler wasn't supposed to rearm and the rest is history. What have we learned from it?

Germany 'needs a nuclear arsenal of its own'
By Kate Connolly in Berlin
(Filed: 27/01/2006)

A former defence minister has provoked outrage and broken a major taboo by suggesting that Germany should have its own nuclear arsenal.

Rupert Scholz argued that Berlin needed to embrace the idea of a nuclear deterrent in the light of threats from terrorists and the Middle East.

"We need to ask ourselves how we could react in an appropriate manner to a nuclear threat from a terror state, and if needs be, even by using our own nuclear weapons," he said.

Mr Scholz, 68, who was the defence minister in Helmut Kohl's government in 1988 and 1989, said he doubted whether other nations' guarantees, made during the Cold War, to keep Germany safe in the face of a nuclear threat, could still be trusted.

"Without the appropriate guarantees of protection by our partners, the question of our own nuclear deterrent needs to be discussed openly," he said.

"I am aware that I am addressing a taboo. But in the light of the dangers that weapons of mass destruction could end up in the hands of terrorists, this is a question which deserves serious debate."

Germany agreed not to develop nuclear weapons after the Second World War in return for protection from the United States and Nato.

Mr Scholz's comments came under attack yesterday.

The security spokesman for the opposition Free Democrats, Rainer Stinner, accused him of "throwing oil on the fire" of the tension between Iran and the West.

Rainer Arnold, the defence spokesman for the Social Democrats, part of the governing coalition, said Mr Scholz's remarks would not be taken seriously.

Slovakia feels Vatican heat

Slovak cabinet falls over controversial Vatican Treaty
07.02.2006 - 10:46 CET | By Renata Goldirova

EUOBSERVER / BRATISLAVA - The Slovak government is on the verge of collapse due to a dispute among ruling coalition parties over a Vatican treaty criticised also by the EU...

The document disadvantages non-Catholics, while the Catholic Church would gain a large area of influence and be able to interfere in civil matters, said Mr Dzurinda.
****************

This is merely the tip of the iceberg: the Vatican intends on escorting select politicians to power and reviving dormant thrones who will in exchange for services rendered enforce the bloody Roman Catholic Church position on everything from employment to worship. This ought to set off alarm bells to those who don't want to be subject to a new inquisition! Watch Slovakia fall into line and the rest will follow.

Valentine? Feb. 14? Cupid? Hearts? WHY?

St. Valentine's Day Christian Custom? -- or Pagan Holiday

by Herman L. Hoeh



Isn't it time we examined why we encourage our children to celebrate St. Valentine's Day - when it is never mentioned in the Bible as a practice of the New Testament Church?

Let's stop teaching our children these pagan customs in memory of Baal the sun god - the original St. Valentine - and teach them instead what the Bible really says!


The Silence of Educators


(Valentine's Day float sponsored by a school)

Teachers are all too often silent about the origin of the customs they are forced to teach in today's schools! If they were to speak out, many would lose their jobs!

Isn't it time we examined why we encourage our children to celebrate St. Valentine's Day - when it is never mentioned in the Bible as a practice of the New Testament Church?

Today, candymakers unload tons of heart-shaped red boxes for February 14, while millions of the younger set are annually exchanging valentines. Florists consider February 14 - St. Valentine's Day - as one of their best business days. And young lovers pair off - at least for a dance or two - at St. Valentine's balls.

Why? Where did these customs originate? Where do we find any such practices in the Bible?

How did we come to inherit these customs?

A Christian Custom?

Did you know that centuries before Christ, the pagan Romans celebrated February 15 and the evening of February 14 as an idolatrous and sensuous festival in honor of Lupercus, the "hunter of wolves"?

The Romans called the festival the "Lupercalia." The custom of exchanging valentines and all the other traditions in honor of Lupercus - the deified hero-hunter of Rome- was also linked anciently with the pagan practice of teen-agers "going steady." It usually led to fornication. Today, the custom of "going steady" is thought very modern. It isn't. It is merely a rebirth of an old custom "handed down from the Roman festival of the Lupercalia, celebrated in the month of February, when names of young women were put into a box and drawn out by men as chance directed." That's the admission of the Encyclopedia Americana, article, "St. Valentine's Day."


(Lupercus, the "hunter of wolves")

When Constantine made "Christianity" the official religion of the Roman Empire there was some talk in church circles of discarding this pagan free-for-all. But the Roman citizens wouldn't hear of it! So it was agreed that the holiday would continue as it was, except for the more grossly sensual observances.

It was not until the reign of Pope Gelasius that the holiday became a "Christian" custom. "As far back as 496, Pope Gelasius changed Lupercalia on February 15 to St. Valentine's Day on February 14." (p. 172 of Customs and Holidays Around the World by Lavinia Dobler).
(Pope Gelasius)

But how did this pagan festival acquire the name of "St. Valentine's Day"? And why is the little naked Cupid of the pagan Roman so often associated today with February 14? And why do little children and young people still cut out hearts and send them on a day in honor of Lupercus the hunter of wolves? Why have we supposed these pagan customs in honor of a false god are Christians?

Who Was the Original "St. Valentine"?


(Nimrod the Mighty Hunter)

Valentine was a common Roman name. Roman parents often gave the name of their children in honor of the famous man who was first called Valentine in antiquity. That famous man was Lupercus, the hunter. But who was Lupercus? - and why should he have also borne the name Valentine among the heathen Romans?

The Greeks called Lupercus by the name of "Pan". The Semites called Pan "Baul," according to the Classical Dictionaries. Baal - mentioned so often in the Bible - was merely another name for Nimrod, "the mighty hunter" (Genesis 10:9) It was a common proverb of ancient time that Nimrod was "the MIGHTY hunter before the Lord." Nimrod was their hero - their strong man - their VALENTINE!

How plain that the original Valentine was Nimrod, the mighty hunter of wolves. Yet another of Nimrod's names was "Sanctuc" or "Santa", meaning "Saint'. It was a common title of any hero-god. No wonder that the Roman Lupercalia is called "St. Valentine's Day"!

But why do we associate HEARTS on a day in honor of Nimrod - the Baal of the Phoenicians and Semites?

The surprising answer is that the pagan Romans acquired the symbol of the heart from the Babylonians. In the Babylonian tongue the word for heart was "bal" (see Young's or Strong's Concordance). The heart - bal - was merely a symbol of Nimrod - the Baal! or Lord of the Babylonians!

Executed at Rome

Nimrod - the original St. Valentine - was also known as Saturn, the Roman-Babylonian god who hid from his pursuers in a secret place. The Latin word Saturn is derived from the Semitic speaking Babylonians. It means "be hid," "hide self," "secret," "conceal." The original Semitic (Hebrew) word, from which the Latin Saturn is derived, is used 83 times in the Old Testament (see Young's Concordance under "Sathar," also "sether").

According to ancient tradition, Saturn (Nimrod) fled from his pursuers to Italy. The Apenine mountains of Italy were anciently named the mountains of Nembrod or Nimrod. Nimrod briefly hid out at the site where Rome was later built. The ancient name of Rome, before it was rebuilt in 753 B.C., was Saturnia - the site of Saturn's (Nimrod's) hiding. There he was found and slain for his crimes. Later, professing Christians in Constantine's day made Nimrod - the St. Valentine of the heathen- a Saint of the Church and continued to honor him under the name of a Christian martyr.

Why February 14?

But why should the Romans have chosen February 15 and the evening of February 14 to honor Lupercus - the Nimrod of the Bible? (Remember that day in ancient times began at sunset the evening before.)

Nimrod - Baal or sun god of the ancient pagans - was said to have been born at the winter solstice. In ancient time the solstice occurred on January 6 and his birthday therefore was celebrated on December 25 and now called Christmas. It was the custom of antiquity for, the mother of a male child to present herself for purification on the fortieth day after January 6 - Nimrod's original birthdate - takes us to February 15, the celebration of which began on the evening of February 14 - the Lupercalia or St. Valentine's Day.


(Semiramis the "Queen of Heaven," and Nimrod the "divine son of heaven.")

On this day in February, Semiramis, the mother of Nimrod, was said to have been purified and to have appeared for the first time in public with her son as the original "mother and child."

The Roman month February, in fact, derives its name from the februa which the Roman priests used in the rites celebrated on St. Valentine's Day. The febru were thongs from the skins of sacrificial animals used in rites of purification on the evening of February 14.

Cupid Makes His Appearance


(Isis and Osiris)

Another name for the child Nimrod was "Cupid" - meaning "desire" (Encyclopedia Britannica, art., "Cupid"). It is said that when Nimrod's mother saw him, she lusted after him - she desired him. Nimrod became her Cupid - her desired one - and later her Valentine! So evil was Nimrod's mother that it is said she married her own son! Inscribed on the monuments of ancient Egypt are inscriptions that Nimrod (the Egyptians called him Osiris) was "the husband of his mother."

As Nimrod grew up, he became the child-hero of many women who desired him. He was their Cupid! In the Book of Daniel he is called the "desire of women" (Dan. 11:37). Moffatt translates the word as Tammuz - a babylonian name of Nimrod. He provoked so many women to jealousy that an idol of him was often called the "image of jealousy" (Ezekiel 8:5). Nimrod, the hunter, was also their Valentine - their strong or mighty her! No wonder the pagans commemorated their hero-hunter Nimrod, or Baal, by sending heartshaped love tokens to one another on the evening of February 14 as a symbol of him.

Nimrod, the mulatto son of Cush the Ethiopian, was later a source of embarrassment to the pagans of Europe. They didn't want an African to worship. Consequently, they substituted a supposed son of Nimrod, a white child name Horus, born after the death of Nimrod. This white child then became a "fair Cupid" of European tradition.

It is about time we examined these foolish customs of the pagans now falsely labeled Christian. It is time we quit this Roman and Babylonian foolishness - this idolatry - and get back to the faith of Christ delivered once for all time.

Let's stop teaching our children these pagan customs in memory of Baal the sun god - the original St. Valentine - and teach them instead what the Bible really says!

EU to defeat Islamic forces

An excerpt from the European Observer article:

EU hesitates on Mohammed cartoon reaction
06.02.2006 - 10:26 CET | By Teresa K├╝chler


...Seven EU leaders meeting in the German city of Dresden also called for a joint EU approach to the problem.

"Violence and threats are not acceptable under any circumstances," the German head of state, Horst Koehler, said speaking for colleagues from Finland, Italy, Latvia, Austria, Portugal and Hungary.

"It is important that we speak with one voice on this issue in the European Union, uphold our common values but also make an effort toward de-escalation," said president Heinz Fischer of Austria.

*****************

Based upon the two witnesses of the Bible and history, I can testify that the barbaric situation will only get worse and bring non-Muslim Europe together against them; that Catholic Europe is destined to strike at the Islamofascist threat growing to the south and will be most victorious, a smashing success!

Islam will rue the day they provoked the EU to rage, bringing out the beast within them that will devour the whole world.

Keeping an Eye on Germany

From: HawaiianKane (Manager of A FORUM ON THE MIDDLE EAST)


Let me point out, although David Ben Ariel may not hold exactly the same opinions that we personally hold, we believe his aptitude and insight has always been unique and worthy of examining in detail. His rectitude has always been admirable and his concern for Israel unquestioned.

Because of his outstanding interest and admiration of Israel, we made him part of our Management Team and held him responsible for alerting us to any shifts in European covert actions against Eretz Yisroel.

Many Jews still hold strongly to David's insistence regarding innate Germanic attitudes regarding dominance of all other states and having a secret agenda directly ultimately against Jews and the rest of Mankind. Although I may not entirely agree, honestly I can't definitely believe he is wrong. My instinct believes he is really "onto" something, which none of us can ignore.

Herbert Armstrong: a Diamond among Coal

Worth repeating:

A new comment has been posted on your blog entry:
Germany Behind the Mask: Monster or Marshmallow?

From Name: Ruvy in Jerusalem
Comments: Didn't see this till now (21:40 Israel time, Motzaei Shabbat)

First of all, David, this is an excellent piece. We don't track on everything, but on keeping a close eye on Germany, we most assuredly do.

So, I have a question for you. Have you seen any machinations behind Chancellor Merkel? Evidences of the Social Christian party of Bayern in action?

Finally, for Dave Nalle and others reading this article.

I've noticed that looking behind the conventional and comfortable sources of data, news and ideas is very difficult for you, to put it politely. It is for most people. But survival in the future will depend on being able to look beyond what is your comfortable source of news, data and ideas.

A future that you do not understand at all is rushing at you with gathering speed. The riots in Damesek, the burning of two Danish embassies are just small signs of this.

While I am not a Christian and do not agree with everything that David ben Ariel's church believes in, the Philadelphia Trumpet has had a habit of calling events before they've occurred. That is something worth paying attention to.

Occasionally, I would listen to some of the Christian preachers on TV while I lived in the States. Curiosity would draw me there. The majority were just hucksters with only garbage on their tongues. Herbert Armstrong stood out as one man making sense, a diamond amongst a pile of coal. He actually provided analyses, where the other preachers provided nothing but thin air.

Again, I point out that I am no Christian and never will be. But David is worth paying careful attention to.

Ariel Sharon failed to read Beyond Babylon

Amazon.com review of Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall.



Times of truth., February 2, 2006
Reviewer: Jewish Patriot "SHmuel" (Eretz Israel) - See all my reviews
I obtined two copies of the Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall and as a LIKUD Central Council Member attempted to deliver one to Mr. Sharon due to my excellent opinion of the book. He would not accept it.
Eventually I understood why. And I am sorry to say he not longer could reconsider his refusal.
Miss Rice declared not long ago in fact days ago the "we did not have a pulse"... She was wrong in more than way.
One has to have a soul and heart and brain in good working order to pick up THE PULSE.
This book leads the reader to, even if not Christian such as I am, understand the deep roots of the critical situations we confront. And to THE PULSE...

Germany Behind the Mask: Monster or Marshmallow?

For over 50 years, Herbert W. Armstrong warned that a German-led European combine would thresh the nations. When Germany lay in ashes after WWII, Mr. Armstrong had no doubt Germany would be back with a vengeance and he pounded this theme home through the pages of The Plain Truth magazine read by millions worldwide.

Are We Wrong About Europe? by Ryan Malone of The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine, reveals how they continue in Armstrong's tradition.

Konrad Adenauer said the West was "taking a calculated risk" when they started rebuilding Germany after the Holocaust. Before that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill agreed: "It is our inflexible purpose to destroy German militarism and Nazism and to ensure Germany will never again be able to disturb the peace of the world."

Nevertheless, Helmut Schmidt reported Germany was again putting on "imperial airs," and author Bernard Conally wrote that France was struggling to "hold the old demons of Germany's character in check." Margaret Thatcher warned her deaf audience that "Germany is very powerful now - her national character is to dominate." Are they all just crying wolf? Or is the German beast about to devour again?

Robert Locke is opposed to the increasingly fascist Europe (but doesn't believe Germany dominates it) stated: "I can't agree with you about Germany. It is a castrated PC marshmallow of a country, not a lion preparing to rule the world."

Consider Luigi Barzini's reference to "The mutable Germans" in The Europeans where he questions: "Which is the shape of the German Proteus this morning? Which will be its shape tomorrow? Johannes Gross thinks his countrymen wear a mask. 'But the day may come when someone lifts the mask," he wrote. "The face that appears may be less full-cheeked and rosy than today's... So long as we wear the mask, we remain hidden and continue to conceal the situation from ourselves.'"

Ron Fraser (Is a World Dictator About to Appear?) exposes: "Although Germany is the prime mover in all these [European unification] efforts, in order to dispel any idea that the country may have expansionist intentions, these initiatives have generally been made under the cloak of being for the common good of the European Union."

This sentiment concurs with Bismarck, who wrote in his diary (Nov. 1876): "I have always heard politicians use the word "Europe" when they were making requests to other powers which they did not dare formulate in the name of their own country."

What is Germany hiding? Nuclear weapons? Who would be so foolish to imagine Germany without their own nuclear weapons when they were ahead of us in developing them? Certainly the grand design Franz Josef Strauss had in mind (with much at his disposal as Federal Minister of Nuclear Energy, and later Defense Minister) demanded independence from the United States. And Germany's Dolphin submarines delivered to Israel, equipped to handle nuclear weapons, underscore German military capabilities, yet the United States continues to blindly promote their control of the European continent, oblivious to The Dangers in US-German European Policy.

How many German plants in America are serving the interests of Germany's budding Fourth Reich? It's not only German factories and German businesses in America proving "that basic thoroughness of the orderly German" (Johannes Gross), since the secret Nazis had predetermined such a strategy, but bought and paid for American prostitutes in diverse and perverse positions of power aid and abet them! They expose our country to danger and will leave us infected as a nuclear wasteland!

What is Germany hiding behind the mask? Even if skeptics dismiss the mystic relationship between Germany and the Vatican (both forging Europe into their image believing "the German spirit will heal the world" -Emanuel Geibel), and doubt the Bavarian pope is soon going to promote a particular strong man and platform to save Europe and the world from the threat of Islam, shouldn't those responsible for our national security seriously consider the scenario of a United States of Europe betraying us? Shouldn't the intelligence experts consider that possibility and prepare for it? Why suffer the element of surprise that Germany is infamous for? "The German is acquainted with the hidden paths to chaos..." (Nietzche).

"...it is once again important to keep an eye on the German Proteus in an attempt to fathom the probable shape of things to come. What form will he assume next? After all, Germany is still le coeur de l'Europe" (Barzini). Is the German marshmallow about to mutate into the German monster? Will the EU mask come off and expose the beast? Will the heart be healthy for Europe or dark and dangerous?
