A Visit to Tell Dan
On a recent trip to Isreal, we visited the site of Tell Dan. While visiting the site we learned about all the history of this place. Most of us know Dan only for the fact that one of Jeroboam’s calves were placed at Dan. Come explore with us the complete story behind this city and discover why it is one of Israel’s most fascinating sites. It is really worth the visit.
False Prophets – 7 more Signs
This is the second part of our study on how to identify a false prophet. We have determined before that it is our responsibility to ensure that we are not deceived. YHVH teaches us through His Word how to identify these false prophets or teachers. It is our responsibility to search His Word for the truth. Some of the Scripture quoted in this article is bound to offend some, but if we are offended by Scripture, we need to do some searching.
The Vision of Slaughter….Turn from your wicked ways and live!
We just witnessed the opening of another Olympic games. It reminded me of Pompeii in the Roman times. We recently went to the town and saw, among the well-preserved ruins, the layout of the arena. The guide told us how they had special rooms for the â€œathletesâ€ just outside the arena where they could go after the games to indulge every lust. It is no different in our time! The organizers have ordered 100 000 condoms just for the use of the athletes in the Olympic village. The number exceeds what they ordered for the previous games with 30 000. Immorality is the norm and growing in popularity. Idolatry is another similarity between the Olympic games and Pompeii; proof to this is the many ruins of temples to pagan deities. They worshiped a variety of idols, but now only ruins of that wicked city remain as a reminder to us. Their end was complete! It is the same in our time; idolatry is the norm. People canâ€™t talk enough about how spectacular the opening ceremony was. This ceremony was pure evil and loaded with Illuminati and occult symbolism; this is nothing else than idolatry. The Olympic stadium was an altar for satan; it was all done in honor of him. This relates very well with a passage in Ezekiel, “The vision of slaughter….”
When you enter the land – Understanding the full context leads to better understanding
I have often heard the phrase â€œWhen you enter the landâ€ mentioned in discussion on the applicability to a specific commandment. I have previously spoken about our logic getting in the way of our obedience. Could the use of this condition be another example of us trying to reason which of the instructions of YHVH to obey? A good example of this is the sabbatical year. Should we or shouldnâ€™t we keep the instructions regarding the sabbatical year? Is it only applicable to people living in Israel or is it applicable to all? What about the pilgrimage feasts? Should we go to Israel three times a year or not? Let us do a detailed study of this phrase and see what conclusions we can make and how that needs to be applied in our lives today.
Yom T’ruah is not Rosh haShanah
During this time of year we hear a lot of discussions as to whether or not we should join in the celebration of Rosh haShanah (Head of the new Year). We all know that Exodus 12:2 specifically tells us that the beginning of the year is in Aviv (spring time). Yet, we hear some very convincing tales as to why the Scriptures actually allows for more than one new year (like we have today – calendar year, fiscal year, school year, etc…) In this article I will proof to you that the Scriptures only refer to one new year and it is not Rosh haShanah on 1 Tishri!
