The Latest Catastrophe!

In the 9 years I have been involved in this ministry, I have written reports on the subject of the United Methodist's and there stance against Israel, as well as how strange it is that there are those in the Christian community who are offended with the Jewish people, just for being Jews - when their Messiah is Jewish. This reasoning always causes me pause and I must admit, much frustration. When someone writes an article that is accurate in its analysis and observations, why should I pontificate when I can make sure you get a chance to read the report for yourselves. Please take the time to read Jan Markell's article below, I found it to be very enlightening!

The Latest Catastrophe!
By Jan Markell

I recently wrote on Hamas in America and about the FBI watching Hamas leaders film a bridge on the East Coast. I will not be repetitive other than to say that many Americans pay no attention to terror in faraway places. That is why I must emphasize that these terror outfits operate right here in America and in this case, in Minnesota -- my home state.  What a chilling example of this here.  Scroll down to the YouTube "Hamas, Fatah, Fight it Out in Minnesota."
Now to the "catastrophe."  The United Methodist Church (UMC) is hardly acting Christian. Yes, I know there are good people in that denomination who would never go along with this. Nonetheless, the UMC is hosting a Capitol Hill exhibit portraying Israel's founding as a "catastrophe." Guess they are biblically illiterate! Do they even read the Bible?  Israel plays a role from Genesis 12 to the end of Revelation!  So, following that line of thinking, then the Bible also is a "catastrophe."
The display,
"60 Years of Dispossession," chronicles the "Nakba," the Palestinian word for "catastrophe" used to describe Israel's founding. The photo exhibit trumps a mass deportation of Palestinians, massacres of civilians, and the razing to the ground of hundreds of Palestinian villages. It is appearing in the lobby of the United Methodist Building in Washington February 3-24

Institute for Religion and Democracy representative Mark Tooley commented, "Religious Left activists claim they support Israel's existence. But the 'Nakba' mythology portrays Israel's founding only as a catastrophe. Will the United Methodist lobbyists ever host an event that celebrates Israel's existence?"

It would be nice if those members of the "Religious Left" would go after nations that deserve some condemnation.  How about calling North Korea a "catastrophe," or Iran?  How about at least respecting Israel for being our ally in the war on terror (a phrase hardly used anymore as it is politically incorrect and we don't want to offend).

I would recommend that you contact the United Methodist Church but they are likely to deny this just as the ELCA denied a similar problem. However, you can look up the UMC on the Web if you like and e-mail them politely.

The root of the problem is that the Methodist church and other mainline Protestant churches, and the Catholic church, believe in what is called Replacement Theology. That teaching states that the church is the new Israel and there is no relevance to Israel today. It is one of the more dangerous false doctrines out there as it skews the entire Bible.  And it creates the kind of anti-Semitism outlined above.

For more information on this, visit our "Spiritual Deception" category, "Israel" category, "Anti-Semitism" category, and Palestine? category at our Web site.

The Bible prophesies persecution of both Jews and Christians in the last days. How unfortunate that it is so-called Christians actually persecuting the Jews.  If one considers himself a Christian, then let me quote the following: 

How odd of God to choose the Jews,
Yet not so odd as those who choose,
the Jewish God, yet spurn the Jews.

LIVE RADIO THIS WEEKEND (Feb. 7): Tired of bad news? Keep looking up as Dr. Ron Rhodes and I will discuss his new book on Heaven. He is one of our "Understanding the Times 2009" speakers.  Also, Dr. Gary Cass from the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission will discuss how Christians are now coming under serious danger from new hate crimes and much more.  Will they push the "Fairness Doctrine" through and knock programming like "Understanding the Times" off the air? It will be a bumpy ride for believers in the months and years ahead.

Awaiting His return, 

Jan Markell

Because, in truth, because they have misled my people, saying, "Peace," when there is no peace; and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear whitewash on it. Say to those who smear whitewash on it that it shall fall.  (Ezekiel 13:1-16 / NRSV)

Interesting Story

From Walid Shoebat.com

This amazing story of Pastor Salamanca from Mexico city who is a Mexican Pastor in Mexico City who tells of the story when a few hundred pro Palestinian activists and they were throwing rocks and other material at the embassy during the recent Gaza conflict. Pastor Salamanca immediately mustered his congregation and fellow Pastors within two hours they marched with over 5000 Christian supporters of Israel and stopped the rioters and forced them to disperse with peaceful force, the 5000 Christians waving Israel flags scared the living daylights from the cowardly rioters who were attacking the Embassy. The Ambassador of Israel thanked the Pastor and his followers.

We salute Pastor Salamanca and his blessed congregation for his brave stand and his true faith in G-d and his people.
