Following the Leader

Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.'” The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”
(Matthew 21:1-11 ESV)

Many Christians celebrate this day as Palm Sunday, although there is overwhelming evidence that this event did not occur on a Sunday.

Before Jesus’ arrest (via betrayal by Judas Iscariot) trial and subsequent crucifixion He said, “”O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! See, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord'” (Matthew 23:37-39 ESV).

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD.
(Psalm 118:26 ESV)

This is a very important study, considering we are only days away from the United States Presidential Election (2012).

Many of the The Jewish people welcomed Jesus Christ into Jerusalem as their promised Messiah,

The Scribes, Pharisees (except Nicodemous), Sadducees and Sanhedrin would have nothing to do with what they considered heretical and blasphemous.The Pharisees and Sanhedrin were also involved in legal matters before the court, including recommendations to Herod the Great and Pontius Pilate regarding capital punishment.

The lesson of this story is that one should not follow the crowd. The vast Jewish people had accepted Him as the Messiah. Yet political pressure ad the leadership of the church found him guilty of heresy and blasphemy and He was put to death. The same principals rule our world today. Politicians, elected officials, appointed officials and police officers routinely abuse their position of trust to enforce the law as see they fit. So much for the rule of law.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD.
(Psalm 118:26 ESV)

The Religion of Peace?

As most of you are aware, violence broke out in Egypt and Libya yesterday over a internet movie about the “Prophet Muhammad” that apparently insulted Islam. John Christopher Stevens was an American diplomat and lawyer who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya from June 2012 to September 2012. He was killed when the U.S. consulate was attacked in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. Two U.S. Marines who were sent to the area when the disturbance began also died, along with Sean Smith, who was employed as an information management officer. According to the U.S. State Department, Stevens is the eighth U.S. Ambassador to be killed in the line of duty.

These American Patriots who died in the line of duty were possibly killed with weapons the Obama Administration supplied during the “Arab Spring” last year. The situation in the Middle East has degraded so far in just over a year that the world is on the verge of another World War. This could very well lead us into the wars that were prophesied in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39.

The violence continues today in the Sudan, Egypt, Libya, MoroccoGaza, and Kuwait.

These attacks were nothing short of a declaration of war against the United States of America by Egypt and Libya. President Barack Obama’s response was to apologize to the Islamists concerning the film that was made.

Representative Allen West said, “Americans need to question whether the deaths of these innocent patriots could have been avoided. The Obama Administration touted the Arab Spring as an awakening of freedom, which we now see is a nightmare of Islamism. President Obama’s policy of appeasement towards the Islamic world has manifested itself into a specter of unconscionable hatred. President Obama has clearly surpassed former President Jimmy Carter and his actions during the Iranian Embassy Crisis, as the weakest and most ineffective person to ever occupy the White House.”

Governor Sarah Palin declared on her Facebook page that Obama needed to “grow” a “big stick.”

Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney also criticized the Obama Administration for apologizing and has said that Administration has sent mixed messages to the world. He said, “President Obama has demonstrated a lack of clarity on foreign policy and purpose.”

The above link will show you the contributions to the world that the “Religion of Peace” have bestowed upon us.

Compare Islam with Judeo-Christian religions and values and you will clearly see who is the real religion of peace. It is also very obvious that Muslims do not worship the same God (YHWH) that we do. They worship a moon god. In reality, they worship Muhammad more than their own “god.”

I have seen the film on YouTube that set off these religious fanatics and murderers. It may be vulgar and inappropriate, but it is the truth.

Here’s a flashback for you to ponder. In 1987, the United States of America used taxpayers funds through the National Endowment for the Arts to fund an exhibit known as “Piss Christ,” a photograph by the American artist and photographer Andres Serrano. It depicts a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine. The piece was a winner of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art‘s “Awards in the Visual Arts” competition.

The photograph was one of a series of photographs that Serrano had made that involved classical statuettes submerged in various fluids—milk, blood, and urine. A print of the photograph was damaged using a screwdriver or icepick on April 17, 2011 while on exhibit in Avignon, France. Many attempts have been made to destroy this “art” over the last twenty plus years, but not one person has been injured or killed. The “artist” has never had a fatwa issued against him.

Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach) said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:15-20 ESV).

The “fruits” of Islam have been displayed for decades. Islam is not a religion, it is a cult of bigotry, pedophilia, necrophiliabestiality, and death.

Please follow the above link and read what the POTUS has said in the past. It is no wonder Barack Obama truly despises biblical Christians usually referred to as “evangelicals.” His situation ethics relativistic liberal religion is antithetical to biblical Christianity. If in the Oval Office, he will see to it that biblical Christianity is erased completely. There will not be one sign of the Judeo-Christian heritage left once Barack Hussein is in the White House.
