We are well on the way to the building of the 3rd Temple. Isn't it curious that our current President is a builder? If you do your research, you will find that the Jewish religious leader believe Trump is the Messiah. That's right, do your research. This article is from World Net Daily. JERUSALEM – The re-established Jewish Sanhedrin is pushing the envelope on the rebuilding of the Temple next Monday, the last evening of Hanukkah, by consecrating a stone altar and reading of a declaration to all nations intended as an invitation to participate in receiving its blessings – leading to an effort to replace the United Nations with a new, God-centered organization.
A full-dress re-enactment of the Korban Olah Tamid (the daily offering) will also take place, with Kohanim (Jewish men of the priestly caste descended from Aaron) wearing biblically mandated garb leading the ceremony. Where the event takes place is not yet known as the city of Jerusalem is dealing with security concerns, as the ceremony could set off Muslim protests or violence if performed in view of the Temple Mount. Whether the priests will ritually slaughter a lamb or prepared meat be used is still a question, though the Sanhedrin has received the necessary permits from government organizations. In either case, the meat will be roasted on the newly consecrated altar. The Sanhedrin is the name given to the council of 71 Jewish sages who constituted the supreme court and legislative body in Judea during the Roman period. It continued to function for more than 400 years after the destruction of the Temple. There have been several orthodox attempts to re-establish it since that time. The current attempt to re-establish the Sanhedrin is generally referred to as the “nascent Sanhedrin,” the “developing Sanhedrin,” or the re-established Sanhedrin. The altar is currently in the form of stone blocks ready to be transported to the Temple Mount and stored in a manner that will enable them to be assembled at a moment’s notice. When complete, the altar will be a square nine feet on each side and five feet high. It will include a ramp for the priests to ascend. The decision to prepare the blocks and all the details of their composition is the result of a long study performed by the members of the Sanhedrin in conjunction with the Temple Institute. The stones are made of aerated concrete and are fit for use in the Temple. There are plans underway to prepare a new set made of actual stones which are considered a more ideal material from which to build the altar. A large menorah will be lit as part of the ceremony. “According to Jewish tradition, the tabernacle and Aaron the Priest were consecrated for service on the last day of Hanukkah,” explained Rabbi Hillel Weiss to Breaking Israel News. “It is fitting that we should invite the nations to the ceremony since Hanukkah is about bringing light to the darkness. The Jews were meant to do this for the entire world,” he said, quoting Isaiah 49:6. The King James version of the Scripture reads: “And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.” “The Jews were brought back to Israel for the purpose of spreading the light to the nations,” the rabbi said. “As the sages instructed the Jews to pray every day, ‘A new light will shine upon Zion, and we should all merit to this light very soon.’ This light is Torah, the light of Torah which comes from Zion, which reveals the hidden aspects of God.” The ceremony will also be part of the Sanhedrin’s ongoing effort to establish a Bible-based international organization to replace the United Nations. Rabbi Yoel Schwartz, president of the Sanhedrin’s Court for the Noahides, has been charged with preparing the declaration, called “The Song of Israel and the World,” that would describe the spiritual basis for the organization.

1 John 4:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? Yeshua went even further than this by saying, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shall love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy." "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." This can be extremely difficult to do because human nature prompts us to respond to hate with hate but Yeshua teaches us that this is not the way. I no longer celebrate Christmas so yesterday I decided to watch, "The Passion" because I never want to forget how He suffered for me and just how horrible the pain and suffering He endured was. The crucifixion was so painful that the Romans came up with a new word to explain it. That word is "excruciating". Though He suffered for hours after being beaten mercilessly and hanging on a cross for hours, yet, He said, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." This ties in with another scripture that states, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." So, you see those that oppose us are in blinded bondage to the enemy and Yeshua wants us to show His love, compassion and pray for them. The true enemy is Satan and what he has done to mankind by working through those who do not serve God. We are the only light that our enemies are going to see in this world so it is imperative we do as Yeshua has instructed us. He said, "If the world hates you, it hated me first." Count yourself blessed if the world hate you for you are on the right path. Darkness despises the Light, He is the Light and when we are in Him, we are the Light. Do not hide your Light under a bushel but let it shine for the entire world to see. True Christianity is no joke, we are living in perilous times and the fact remains that true Christians have been persecuted since the time of Yeshua and will continue to be persecuted. Christians in the United States have been blessed since the creation of this nation to not see the type of persecution that Christians in other nations endure and are tortured and murdered for. The days approach when this is going to change we can already see them coming. We must be prepared to face our enemies, not wavier and we may even have to die for our belief in Yeshua. Be ready, get prepared, draw neigh unto the Lord with fasting and prayer. I do not say that to be the voice of gloom and doom but this is the reality of the Word of God. God is a Refiners Fire, please be ready for what is ahead and lift one another up.
My mother is 78 years old and has Dementia. She has been in and out of the hospital. She just fell and broke her hip and has to have surgery. This is not good for someone her age and many times after breaking a hip, the end is not far. Please pray, that the Lord is with her through this no matter what happens. We know that to live is Christ and to die is Christ, if we indeed have Christ. When I was young, there was a wonderful lady in our church...she got cancer and was on her death bed when I went to read scriptures concerning living and not dying. I was exercising my faith with the sword of the Word of God. She passed away and being still young in the Lord and carnal, I said to the pastor, "Why her, why did she have to die." His answer, at the time, angered and appalled me. He said, "We are all going to die." As much as I did not like that answer, it was and is the truth and I have come to realize that it is, what it is. We all act so shocked and surprised when our loved ones get sick and die. This is the result of a fallen, corrupt and sin filled world and that is the very reason that Yeshua had to come, suffer and die for us. "The suffering and misery that we go through in this world will not compare to the glory we will see in Him on that day." This life is but a vapor and the only, and I stress, the only single most important thing is, if you belong to Christ or not. Unless He comes and takes us out in the Last Days, we are all going to face death and it was our choices in this life that decides which road you are going down and who is waiting for you at that road. So, please pray for Janet for her healing or transition. I am grateful for each and every prayer I can get. Love Carolyn
