blood red moon

Many people greatly anticipated Sukkot’s Blood Red Moon between 27th and 28 September 2015 depending on your location. We watched at 3 a.m as the blood red moons appeared closest to earth relating to events of significance for all, especially Jewish people among whom God Chose Jesus Christ for salvation of all mankind. During a full lunar eclipse, the moon turns red to reflect glow from earth’s simultaneous sunrises and sunsets according to NASA. The moon looks much bigger because it is closest to the earth at this time. Some predict this lunar eclipse signals a major earthquake or devastating apocalypse before the return of Yeshua HaMashiach Jesus the Messiah. The prophecy in the Book of Joel is the reason for such predictions. That prophecy states the coming of the Messiah will be preceded by celestial wonders, the darkening of the sun a solar eclipse such as happened earlier this year and a Blood Moon lunar eclipse. “The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood-red before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives according to Joel 2:31. In addition to the sun darkening and the moon turning red, God says He will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke in verse 30. True to Scripture, we must look for all of these wonders and other events identified throughout Scripture to occur before that terrible day of the LORD. The Jewish people take this prophecies seriously and seek God’s face intensely during Yom Kippur. Then during the fifteenth day of the seventh month the Lord’s Feast of Tabernacles begins and lasts for seven days.  The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work.  For seven days present offerings made to the Lord by fire, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present an offering made to the Lord by fire.  It is the closing assembly; do no regular work.”  (Leviticus 23:34–36) reciting prayers at the Western Wailing Wall with a lulav and etrog in his right hand.In addition to all of these wonders in the heavens. Scripture promised before the Messiah returns and sets up His Messianic Kingdom, Adonai will draw the Jewish People by His Ruach HaKodesh Holy Spirit and they will recognize Yeshua: “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.  They will look on Me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son as stated in Zechariah 12:10. How wonderful it would be if this mass recognition of Yeshua, a kind of end-time harvest, begins today and becomes the significant turning point that this Blood Moon signals for the Jewish People.  That is certainly in keeping with a season of rejoicing! Indeed, Sukkot, which follows after Rosh HaShanah Day of Judgement and Yom Kippur the day the judgement is sealed, represents renewed fellowship with God by prayer day and night. yom-kippur

And since this holiday is a pilgrimage festival linked to the harvest, it is known as Chag haAsif Festival of Ingathering. A portion of this song has severe words of rebuke against Israel’s infidelity and unfaithfulness to God. The recent nuclear agreement with Iran by the world powers seem to move forward Iran’s ambitions to destroy Israel and could precipitate a major world war with Israel, underscores that significance. Not only would God “hide His face” from His people but He would also render judgement. “I will heap disasters on them; I will spend My arrows on them. They shall be wasted with hunger, devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction; I will send against them teeth of beasts with poison of serpents of dust in Deuteronomy 32:23–24. Israel prays in total solemn humility in repentance before God at wailing wall and synagogues.The recent nuclear agreement with Iran by world powers, which seems to help move forward Iran’s ambitions to destroy Israel and could precipitate a major world war with Israel, underscores that significance. Although these rebukes seem quite harsh, they reveal the discipline of God for our good and will ultimately end in our final redemption. God’s Jealousy was seen in grafting in of Gentiles boldly into His Presence with full assurance through the blood of Jesus. The flesh of Jesus crucified was the veil that created the time of the Gentiles to follow the example of Christ to worship God in spirit and in Truth. The new covenant in Christ supersedes the old Abrahamic covenant. Moses’ song foresees that the people of Israel will make God jealous with their worship of other false gods and idols and that God in turn will provoke His people to jealousy with those who are called “not a nation.” “They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; they have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. God gives time to Gentiles to provoke Jews to jealousy by acceptance of Jesus Christ in fulfilment of the new covenant to Jews who prefer old covenant as children of Abraham to accept Jesus God’s only way.God provokes Jews to jealousy who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation in Deuteronomy 32:21; see also Romans 11:13–15This reference to not a nation is in Hebrew loh ami It is found again in the Book of Hosea: “I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.’  I will say to those called ‘Not my nation,’ loh ami ‘You are my nation’ and they will say, ‘You are my God in Hosea 2:23; Romans 9:25. Who are these people who were once “not a nation” and are now God’s people? These are the Gentiles who have come to join themselves with the commonwealth of Israel through the Jewish Messiah: “Once you were not a nation, but now you are the nation of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy in 1 Peter 2:10. MILLIONS of Jewish people in Israel all prayed to their Powerful God in greater depth similar to prayers held during kidnapped teens. On Yom Kippur, for nearly 26 hours, we “afflict our souls” in the following five ways We don’t eat or drink; We don’t wash; We don’t use lotions or perfumes; We don’t wear leather footwear; and We abstain from marital relations. The observance of this day is characterized by a sense of peace because of our confidence in our relationship with God and His provision for atonement. Jewish people weep before God at the Wailing Wall praying for forgiveness. Before the sun set, the Jewish People gathered in synagogues to hear the cantor chant Kol Nidre All Vows and recite penitential prayers at wailing wall. Israel depends on God’s Mercy like they did during kidnap of teenagers.

These are the very people who God has called to salvation to provoke Israel to jealousy. “They stumbled in order that they might fall through their trespass so salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous in Romans 11:11.  What makes Jewish People jealous of Gentiles?  Is not it the other way around that the Gentiles are jealous because God blessed many Jewish people with favour as the chosen ones tio be the role model to all nations in spiritual and material prosperity. These blessings seem to be the cause of at least some of the world’s anti-Semitism. So when and how will the Jews become provoked to jealousy by Gentile followers of Yeshua?  It will be when they see the true love, joy, fellowship, and peace that these Believers possess in Yeshua, even when the entire material world around them falls apart. Likewise, it was this ability to sing in the face of apparent tragedy that set Moses apart from the others. All but a few of his generation had died in the wilderness because of their unbelief.  Moses himself was about to die, having never entered the Promised Land.  But he still praised God in song reminding Israel of God’s power, love, and faithfulness. The Rock and His Righteous Judgement metaphor of God as Rock means steadfast, strong, immovable and unchanging.  It is for these particular qualities this chosen a verse from Parasha is the opening line of the Jewish burial service called Tziduk haDin in Righteous Judgement. The prayer begins with Deuteronomy 32:4: “He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.” In contrast to all wondrous qualities of God the Torah portion describes mankind as corrupt, perverse and crooked to the point of being compared to Sodom and Gomorrah. “For their vine is of the vine of Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter.  Their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of cobras in Deuteronomy 32:32–33. There is no way to bridge the wide chasm between the corruption of man and the holiness of God except for one through the narrow gate that leads to life is through Yeshua HaMashiach Jesus the Messiah.  He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father but through Me in John 14:6In addition to being compared to a rock, Moses also likens God to an Eagle the bird of great strength and vision who took the children out of Egypt on His outstretched wings. “As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, spreading out its wings, taking them up, carrying them on its wings so the LORD alone led him. There was no foreign god with him in Deuteronomy 32:11–12. God’s message and significance of the red blood moon is that our actions have consequences for good or  evil and our very survival depends on our faithfulness to God our Rock. As Israel as a nation humbles themselves on the Holiest Day in Judaism the day of Atonement like Nineveh, so God ensures the saved elect’s names are sealed in the Book of Life forever in heaven! After Kol Nidre Services at night, the next day is completely quiet in Israel with many people in the synagogues in the morning and early afternoon. In mid-afternoon many people left synagogues to take a sleep in the heat of the afternoon while still fasting return to their local synagogue in a few hours for additional prayers. yom kippurIn the morning, returned to our synagogues for the Morning Prayer service in which several sections of the Torah portion are read.  The entire Book of Jonah will be read during the afternoon service. This service concludes shortly before sunset with the Ne’ila Closing of the Gates prayer, which is the last moment for repenting before God seals His judgements in His Book. Yom Kippur ends at nightfall with the blowing of shofar, and return home to enjoy a festive meal.  Many begin building Sukkah for holiday of Sukkot, which is just four days after. Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement Biblically speaking, is the holiest of the year. In Israel and Jewish communities around the world everyone is in local synagogues. Many secular Jews who do not observe Jewish holidays consider theme of atonement and repentance, significant. “It shall be a statute to you forever: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls and shall do no kind of work, the native-born or strangers who lives as foreigners among you in Leviticus 16:29. We all look forward to the future fulfilment of this Day of Ingathering when the Jewish People are gathered and Messiah will reign on the earth in Isaiah 27:12–13; Jeremiah 23:7–8. It will be a momentous time for all people.  The Bible tells us the nations will come before the Lord during the Feast of Sukkot to worship Him here in Jerusalem. And we know that time will come only after one more significant event a major war between these nations and Israel: “Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.”  according to Zechariah 14:16God’s loving kindness and faithfulness toward Israel ends with a promise of vengeance, redemption and atonement for God’s land and people. “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people in Deuteronomy 32:43 in the Bible. It is not only the people of Israel who will rejoice with this final redemption. The Gentiles will rejoice together with God’s people. God’s salvation is for all people of every tongue, tribe, race and ethnic background.  All Jews and Gentiles can rejoice together in unity at the goodness of God. The significance of blood moon is two-fold. First, this includes spiritual significant effects on Israel plus all nations in relation to Christ for Jesus’ rapture event and later second coming. The 2nd significance is that the blood moon’s closeness to earth means the blood moon’s centrifugal force impact’s earth’s gravitational force physically through electromagnetic wave pull so clashes with earth’s atmospheric pressure. These affects weather conditions, intensify climate changes, causes avalanches, extreme giant waves, storms, tsunamis, flash floods, typhoons, mud slides, landslides, earthquakes, fires, droughts etc. These intense natural phenomena some think reveal the subtle relationships between human behaviour and the cosmic environment which cause emotional distress, dust particles affect asthma related conditions, turmoils, some consider ozone, moonlight, gravity, tidal force, geo-magnetism, elecuomagnetism, weather, ions affect mind of mentally disturbed previously called lunatics because lunar moon changes are supposed to affect mental health, environmental toxic elements from air particles, birds and dogs exhibit changes as signs of warnings of physical upheaval, damage and loss of lives. As tragedies unfold it is important those directly affected need to be adequately prepared in advance if possible for minimal loss to avoid the results of aerosol propeller man-made causes of ozone structural damages and loss of lives. God’s end-time birth pangs require all to be in right relationship with God through Christ Jesus as events unfold to be saved in Christ eternally.

In Isaiah 2:19-22 in the Bible, verse 19 says, they shall go into the holes of the rocks and into the caves of the earth for fear of the LORD and for the Glory of His Majesty when He Arises to terribly shake the earth. 20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which they made for himself to worship to the moles and to the bats. 21 To go into the clefts of the rocks into the tops of ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the Glory of His Majesty, when He Arises to shake terribly the earth. 22 Cease from man whose breath is in his nostrils for he cannot account for you before God. This chapter speaks of the glory of Christians, Jerusalem and gospel-church in end-time days. God’s Great Peace is introduced into the world through Christ Jesus to Jews first in Jerusalem. Those who reject the gospel will be rejected by God. God’s judgement will humble them from confidence in idols and arm of flesh. Jerusalem’s inhabitants will be full of the knowledge of God for everlasting honour. Those who put confidence in horses, chariots, silver, gold and idols will end up throwing their useless idols and valuables in caves to bats and moles as it cannot save them from God’s wrath. When the literal second coming of Jesus place takes on earth, the fear of God during the Day of the LORD, will cause panic that the idols of gold, silver, and valuables will be thrown away as they seek a hiding place in caves to get away from Presence of God. The spiritual worship which it shall introduce shall put down the idolatries of the heathen; and all other institutions in religion shall appear mean and despicable in comparison with this. As moles burrow into the ground to live in the darkness and feed on roots, so they try to hide from God in spiritual blindness. Like bat winged creatures that live in old ruins and caves, flying at night only so they will throw away their most prized possessions in the day God Will Come with Christ to punish the earth. Christians are to warn people of God’s due impending plans but leave their immediate and future punishment to God’s Authorised Son Jesus Christ. God commands His people to look up to Him as Source and Giver of life to all because all good and perfect gifts comes from God, therefore not to idolize or love wealth above God.downloadEven when God blesses through people God is the original owner because the earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof as God’s Establish His Kingdom through the Redeemer in the world Jesus Christ. Spiritual and physical Israel belongs to God to restore great knowledge in the gospel. In Isaiah 2:4 great peace through the Prince of Peace will be seen by those privileged in Christ who accept God’s plans for mankind. The LORD GOD ELOHIM AND ADONAI will strike all the people who covert wealth and treat God’s super abundance provisions for ALL humanity as exclusive private investment assets becomes useless to them on the day of the LORD. They will run to try to hide from God’s wrath in caves filled with bats and pigs. God will fight against all those getting richer depriving others poorer making themselves richer. So super abundant filthy rich wealth used to define status, class, dominance and control booty flowing to the few will totally become a scourge that destroys them if the do not repent. Those confiscating wealth ignoring and refusing to obey God’s command of selfless giving and receiving, will not be saved by their wealth. Although wealth might be initial answer to all things, the wealth and all the symbol of wealth, strength, abundance is not what God created wealth for. God intends wealth for fair sustenance, jobs, revenue for every family on earth entitled to increasing share equally from the enormous wealth generated globally.

The constant design by mankind to exclude original owners connected to the wealth due to fear of upsurge of rebellion and loss of wealth. The more people globally recognise their right to equal entitlement to their wealth, the stronger resistance of usurpers to protect their wealth from returning to rightful owners often vilified and hated by such unjust wealthy. Those standing up for justice usually are blackmailed and bankrupted to nip in the bud any attempts to raise awareness and possible restoration of wealth demands. The message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is equally available freely to the rich and poor to be saved before it becomes too late. It is not worth it to enjoy this life in abundance only to pay eternally for it for exploitation of others by abuse of God’s wealth. The earth is the LORD’S and the fullness therefore. Nobody can buy God or fight God using wealth to defend themselves against the day of the LORD. Do not perish for the things of this world that do not last because a man’s life does not consist of the abundance of things. Neither is excusing oneself as not being a religious person by burying one’s head in the sand that the Sun or moon does not exist will not change God’s Decision to punish those who destroy others. This your God sent opportunity to repair damage caused for centuries to save yourself. For what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul. Fear God who kills mind, body and soul.


In Zechariah 14:1-5 and Daniel 2:44, The God of Heaven Will Visibly Come to Reign from His earthly Capital  City Jerusalem with Jesus Christ and the saints who return on white horses after 7 years of rapture. The LORD GOD Almighty of Heaven Will Set Up His Kingdom on earth that will never be destroyed or be left to any other people ever again according to Daniel 7:22, Titus 2:13, Jude 14-15, Revelation 19:11-.21. God’s Visible Presence is confirmed in the Bible in Zechariah 5:5, Matthew 25:31, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, God’s establishment of His Kingdom on earth will be met with opposition from human kingdom governments who refuse to hand over power back to God according to Luke 21:31. Whether people recognise Jerusalem or not accept God’s decision and choice of Israel as His City, Jerusalem is God’s capital state. The All-Powerful God takes revenge on all who oppose God so furiously destroys His enemies who used to worship God but no longer do so. Those who hate the Act of God The Father join all the anti-Christ against the Lord Jesus Christ, The True genuine, authentic, Messiah using weapons of mass destruction against Israel. Those destroying God’s people and possessions, God ruins His enemies because the enemies of God’s people are enemies of God. God killed Pharaoh’s and all the first born of Egyptians, destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah by fire, Noah’s generation perished by flood Korah’s rebellion swallowed by opened earth, those who believed evil report of 10 spies never reached promised land as punishment by the Biblical God of Israel. Alliances formed against God’s people in end-time fulfil God’s Agenda of gloom and doom to those who think THE GOD OF LOVE cannot allow or tolerate wrath of God of unpalatable magnitude of destruction of humanity. in zechariah 14:3, God Will Fight all nations as Jehovah Nissi, the Almighty ONE in battle fights. Those who reject God and Christ wuill be destroyed by God of heaven Who Sets up His Kingdom in Jerusalem His City. As Judas Iscariot died in Matthew 27:5; Acts 1:18 for not repenting for betraying Jesus, God kills all enforcers used to destroy His enemies. God Destroys all enforcers HIMSELF according to Isaiah 33:1. All those who insist on coming against God and the apples of God’s Eyes, the Jewish people as God’s Chosen, God’s Beloved, the Jewel of The True Living God’s Crown, God declares He will Roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem, the earth and heavens will tremble as Jerusalem is invaded, ravaged and destroyed. Let nobody deceive you God is only invisible so does not relate as a loving Father to His Children in the flesh on earth. God appeared 44 times in the flesh to various people in the Bible. God will come to dwell on earth among mankind so come to terms with God’s plan. In John 16:1-4, Jesus said, these things I spoke to you about so that you will not be offended or stumble to desert God Whom you Trust. They shall persecute you, attack you, throw you out of synagogues, temples, churches, etc. Yea, the time will come when those who kill you think they are doing God’s work or service. But they do these things because they do not know the Father God Almighty Jehovah Nissi or His Son Jesus Christ. These things Jesus prophesied so that when these times come you will remember them. Physical structural churches are targeted and crushed to force anti-Christ rule from Jerusalem. Revelation 13-16, 19:11–21, Ezekiel 38-39, reveal nations are mobilized to divide and destroy Israel. Two-parts of the city will be destroyed leaving one part to fight against anti- Christ who sets up rule in God’s Temple Mount Holy City demanding worship in place of Almighty God Jehovah Yahweh Elohim.

When it seems Israel is about to be wiped out completely from the face of the earth, God Steps in by fire from heaven to destroy His enemies to save Israel in one day battle of Armageddon to finish mankind’s rebellion against God forever. In Zechariah 14:1-20, the literal feet of Jesus Christ with nail prints will actually stand on mount Olives and the mountain split in half during the second coming of Jesus with God. On that day darkness will end with extra light emitted by Radiant Light of God and Christ’s Presence. Zechariah 14:2 says in the Holy Scriptures say there will be the residue of the people and the chosen elect who shall not be cut off from the city during the crisis moment but be saved because Jerusalem belongs to God. Jerusalem is the only city on earth where God wrote His Name because heaven and earth meet in Jerusalem. The whole world is commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem because peace affects all people on earth. Jerusalem in the past was ravished by 6 empires that captured, destroyed and occupied Jerusalem in the past in history but are no more . Therefore the most important thing to do to handle God’s Truth is ensure one comes into agreement with God directly through Jesus Christ to be saved in Jesus Name eternally.

2. GOOD MORALS is essential protection for one – self. Applying good right conduct shows one has the understanding in knowing distinctions between right and wrong helps to make better choices.

Good morals help to understand various points of view on personal, cultural values, codes of conduct or social mores. God’s Absolute Moral Truth Stands Above and beyond human perception in terms of right conduct so connote objective claims of right commandments. People sure have strong beliefs about what’s right and wrong so morals vary from person to person. Confidence in God’s moral absolutes is to help make society workable. Enduring principles expressed to us by Godly authority for human behaviour is based on the Bible. God expects people to do the right thing to accept His Way for good.

One can have a feeling of deep admiration for someone or their abilities, qualities, or achievements with a lot of respect.

These are standard normal values reasonably expected of nearly all people to make good decisions without any need for debate. Common  sense  means there is assumption that a person is expected to automatically know what to do. Therefore people may not be trained specifically yet observed to do the right thing. In addition, some common sense is unique to a vicinity or locality. And so only those familiar with the normal lifestyle know what to expect. Those who do not conform to the expected standard of common sense are seen as not smart enough. An awareness process of adaptation is required to gain better knowledge and understanding. Young people learn common sense from trial and error to gain experience to discern what works best or what to avoid. Others watch some people’s choices and common experiences to advise themselves. Common cannot be taken for granted because it comes with wisdom and maturity. Common sense is not as commonly assumed it is because some people seem to have more money than common sense.6. TRUST is confidence and reliance agreement that something committed or entrusted to one’s care for use or safekeeping is safe. In relationship trust means one feels comfortable to be the real true self without wearing masks. One is sure to be accepted warts by the other person.

It means one belongs to the standard group or community with specific patterns of behaviour. To behave outside the norm of a particular class means one is not in tune with class. Personal taste lifestyle depends on class. Class is a diverse set, collection of groups or configuration containing members regarded as having certain attributes or traits in common. This depicts a kind or category of people whose accent, wealth, education plays a role in defining who they perceive themselves to be in specific  classes in society.

Intimacy and sexual interaction is an essential part of relationship. Love involves intense feelings of unconditional love, positive emotions, instincts demonstrating affection. God is originator of love so sent Jesus to save mankind. So marital love is rooted and grounded in God who said it is not good to be alone so created Adam’s spouse Eve for companionship and as a help meet to replenish the earth. Expressing love to all fellow human beings is obligatory. Love means all people are respected and valued even if having different opinions.  

Human emotions and instinct are known to affect falling in love, mutual attraction, friendship, common interests, to what makes one look appealing in opposite sex relationship. Love all people loved  and give the necessary attention required to all individually. One can have acquaintances, friends, colleagues, family love respectively. There is specific love for each of the above category, so one does not feel sharing Godly love means betraying anybody. Above all, love God, Love Jesus, Love yourself and family and surround yourself with people you love who love you. Have a good positive attitude and remember money cannot buy all things although money certainly makes the world go round to some extent.


Dinah was defiled is today’s main Scripture portion from Genesis 34:2. And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. This is the rape of Dinah, Jacob’s only daughter.  When Dinah goes out to see the women in the town of Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite also named Shechem takes her by force and lays with her; afterwards, he wishes to marry her. Interestingly, the Hebrew meaning of the name Hamor is donkey, a herd animal renowned for its strength, intelligence, keen sense of curiosity, and stubbornness, which arises from an instinct for self-preservation.  Shechem turns to his father Hamor for help in securing Dinah’s hand in marriage covenant. The Hebrew in this passage of Scripture may hint Dinah is responsible for her actions, though not her misfortune. In Hebrew, a male youth is called a na’ar נער and a female youth is a na’arah נערה. In describing Dinah’s adventure to see the daughters of the land, the Torah calls her a na’ar and not a na’arah. True, it is only the difference of one letter, but this letter is the letter hey (ה), which can be used as an abbreviation for the name of God, and it is the suffix that generally makes words feminine in Hebrew, which is a gender-based language. “His heart was drawn to Dinah daughter of Jacob; he loved the young woman [han-na-‘ă-rā, הַֽנַּעֲרָ֔] and spoke tenderly to her.” in Genesis 34:3. If someone is not aware of how precise and exacting Torah scribes are, one might think this a simple typo a technical error. Knowing preciseness with which Torah scholars transcribe each Torah scroll, one would know removal of the letter hey was not a mistake, but deliberate act. It perhaps suggests Dinah’s solo jaunt into the city was made without awareness of her vulnerability. Dinah was going to visit women of the land not the men.  As the sister of 12 brothers, the longing for female company her own age could be considered quite natural.  She may have felt safe there, as well, since her family lived in the area in peace, having bought the land they dwell on from the sons of Hamor. We do not know the exact circumstances. Dinah went out with the confidence of a young naive woman not conscious of the predator dangers of entering the city alone as a young woman. Even today women need to recognize their vulnerabilities and walk in wisdom, not putting themselves in situations where purity or sanctity of mind, soul, and/or body could be endangered.  Of course, parents, both spiritual and legal, have a responsibility to teach, warn, and advise their children about these realities.Young girls and women lack knowledge without brain cortex fully formed to understand risk consequences. The idea and modern teaching says “women can do everything men can do and better, no way suggests women should sit around at home, either. Whatever her reasoning was, Dinah bears some responsibility for venturing out alone, while Shechem carries the full responsibility for his criminal and violent act toward a defenceless woman. The whole town paid a hefty price as all the men were killed by Diana’s brothers. They achieved this feat by asking them to be circumcised to qualify to marry Dinah. While nursing fresh wounds, they pounced on them in revenge killings so punished them for defiling Dinah. In Genesis 39:6-23 Joseph escaped from Potiphar’s Wife’s attempted rape. He escaped out of his cloak, leaving it in her hand and runs out of the house. She lied and told her husband the Hebrew tried to rape her, using her powerful position she was believe. So innocent Joseph who feared God refused to sin against God yet punished instead for 13 years. Dinah’s brother Joseph, almost suffered the same fate, seduced in attempted rape by Potipher’s wife, shows the case of relying on confession testimony of perpetrator for verdict is unreliable for justice. The innocent survivor is punished by society while perpetrator seems to go Scotch free but God will deal with them on judgement day. In Another case in point is Amnon, David’s oldest son in 2 Samuel 13:1-22-39, the first in line for the throne. Amnon was Tamar’s half-brother. Amnon son of David fell in love with Tamar, a virgin and beautiful sister of Absalom son of David. Amnon longed for Tamar so much that he became lovesick.It was even more difficult for him because she was a virgin meaning that she was available for marriage, but not to Amnon because marriage between half-brother and half-sister was forbidden. Amnon became so infatuated and obsessed by Tamar’s lovely beauty. Amnon’s friend Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David’s brother advised him to fake sickness and invite Tamar to cook for him. So alone with Tamar because David commanded it, it gave part of the responsibility to David. He refused to eat, Amnon showed by this everything he told David was a lie. He continued the deception so forced himself upon Tamar in the bedroom. This plan worked as Amnon isolated her and asked all siblings to give them privacy. This was a terrible mistake to leave those two on their own because Ammon’s motives towards his sister was evil. He forced himself upon his sister and raped her. Immediately after, Amnon hated her worse than he loved her so destroyed Tamar’s reputation and damaged her reputation. Amnon rejects Tamar then Amnon hated her exceedingly, so that the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, “Arise, be gone!” evil of sending Tamar away is worse than rape as nobody will have her in those days.

What Amnon did to Tamar was wrong, but he could still somewhat redeem the situation by either marrying her or paying her bride price in accordance with Exodus 22:16-17 and Deuteronomy 22:28-29.The payment was meant to compensate for the fact Tamar was less likely to be married because she was no longer a virgin. Her privileged position as a princess dressed in a robe of many colours extending all the way down to the wrists and ankles. Her garment of virginity soiled, he called his servants to put ‘this woman out and bolt the door behind her.’ Tamar deserved better treatment as an Israelite, a relative and as a sister. Tamar deserved better treatment as a princess. Despite all this, Amnon spitefully treated Tamar as this woman. In verse 19-20 Tamar mourns and Absalom comforts her. Then Tamar put ashes on her head, and tore her robe of many colours that was on her, and laid her hand on her head and went away crying bitterly. Absalom her brother said to her, “Has Amnon your brother been with you? hold your peace, my sister. He is your brother; do not take this thing to heart.” So Tamar remained desolate in her brother Absalom’s house. So Tamar exposed Amnon and put ashes on her head, and tore her robe: Tamar correctly treated this as a calamity so did not hide the truth of the terrible crime committed against her. She did not give place to the voice of shame saying, this was your fault. David did not punish Amnon’s lust despite pleas from Tamar’s mother and brother. Amnon refused to marry her so she was disgraced permanently and never married. Her God sent gift to marry was never accomplished because considered ‘damaged good’ in such a community. Coerced non-consensual unwilling participants in sexual unions with benevolent,sex is considered wrong inside and outside contractual agreement in marriage that condone rape of a spouse. In such cases, the punishments for rape is not compassion or trauma to the woman herself but for honour, tribal purity sense that a useful woman is damaged goods. A rapist can be forced, essentially to buy his victim. By contrast, a woman who voluntarily gives up purity may be killed because she transformed herself from family asset to liability. Coerced sex is considered wrong inside and outside contractual agreements of spouse in marriage. Some think as David wronged Bathsheba so Amnon wronged Tamar, “like father like son.” However, 2 wrongs do not make things right so rape and sexual abuse is not justified under any circumstances of revenge because all vengeance belongs to God. Trauma pain lasts all life long so destroys marital intimacy as violated person lives nightmares forever. Consequently, Absalom planned revenge years later inviting siblings to family get together party. He gave secret instruction to his servants to kill Ammon only during the party so caused family confusion for years.In modern society liberal views present sexual intimacy often sold with cars and material things as the source of pleasure in a relationship. So diminishes and devalues romance and the original choice and the proper use of sexual intimacy. So has porn and on-line website and perverse adult sites and revenge wars dehumanize sex with terrible consequences and rejection of survivors in some communities. Accepting rape pregnancy and falling in love with resulting child is unmitigated good of God the heavenly Father Jehovah Jireh Who Provides and supplies all needs. Therefore, seeing all pregnancy as God-intended and all childbirth as a blessing from a loving heavenly father helps to make this possible. Hagar and Ishmael provided for by God after sexual abuse of Abraham condoned by Sarah so prosper richly to date from Genesis 16:1-16 to Genesis 21:14-21. It is often assumed or expected as long as one exercises the right to fulfil the flesh, one is free to find someone to consent. The problem is the targeted person may not be keen or interested as much as the pursuer desperately seeking relieve. The survivor deals with rape and sexual abuse consequences for life. While perpetrators may not even remember the sexual abuse or rape because they treat people as sex objects. They manipulate, beat, kick, pull hair, grope, hurt, blackmail with guilt survivors who lives with pain, injury, broken bones,from violent abuses and remain affected for life. It is important and necessary not to trivialize sexual abuse, promiscuity and immorality deeply entrenched generationally. In the emotion of Lot’s family was a sacred invasion of sacred body Temple of God. No wonder the heathen Sodom and Gomorrah promiscuity lifestyle impacted Genesis 19:31-38 father daughter incest near the town of Tzo’ar is that the first born daughter Moab said to the younger daughter Ben-Ammi Ammon, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth. Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the first born went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the first born said unto the younger, Behold, I lay last night with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our Father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. And the first born had a son, and called his name Moab the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. And the younger, had son and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day. Lot willingly drank and, when he was drunk, he lost what little control and common sense he had in Genesis 19:30–38, and this is the final step in Lot’s backsliding. The lesson can we learn from this is, when a person has too much to drink, he does not make good choices and loses control of his morals and operates out of the sinful, carnal nature. As a result of the incest, two children were born, and those two children are the fathers of two nations that have been at odds with and the source of much suffering to Israel down through history. Lot as a father offered his daughters to be gang raped in Genesis 19:1-11 so influenced their inhibitions on sexual boundaries. So schools must educate children from 5 years onwards of the priceless nature of their body. Emphasize nobody is allowed to touch and violate them secretly by concealed groomed gifts or special secrets. Not to be lured to partake rituals to indulge perverts in disguise lusting with ‘affection.’ Remember a child is not born with knowledge of sex so must taught to protect their body from 3 years to wash and clean themselves. To chaperon them with reliable trustworthy adults to avoid isolation and being taken advantage of by perverts. Parents accompany your children to parties and supervise them for their own good. Do not be manipulated into thinking it is a preserved environment for children only to condone perverts lurking around. Support children daily to ensure they do their homework and stay ahead in learning at school or home. Read to them to input reading skills and bedtime stories at night. Encourage sports to enable character forming life skills. Have a fruitful career solution to listen to your spouse to better balance work and family life. Booster your eternal family which lasts forever as all other things pass away. Your career must never interfere with Godly family life. Alcohol and drugs remove inhibitions so children must be made aware of their own body value early. Above, teach children early self-control, fear of God to resist like Joseph sexual motions not to act on own without Godly meaningful, loving, genuine, caring spouse is lust. It causes more harm, pain, hurts, sorrows and life time generational consequences. By the Grace of God, Christ Jesus forgives and washes all sins as red as scarlet as white as snow so repent and ask God for peace and inner healing from abuse. Forgive pervert and yourself because you do not want to be a neighbour to the pervert in hell. With God all things are possible as many testimonies exist including Joyce Meyer’s testimony among others encourage people to heal thrive in Jesus Name.


Ghana-Chad Martyr - Mathew Ayairga (resized)

21 African saints acknowledged their faith in Jesus Christ, moments before their beheading by Islamic State (IS) militants in Libya a Ghanaian joined 20 Egyptians according to the details by Christian sources. Mathew Ayairga aka Samuel Alham Wilson as many well-informed Christians said in Chad from Ghana, was among the 21 men killed by IS fighters for refusing to embrace Islam. He was not Christian but forced to join the kidnapped men dressed in orange jumpsuits, knelt at beach with black-clothed attackers standing behind. Just moments before his death was asked to follow Islam Ayairga he refused according to video footage. After reportedly witnessing ”immense faith” of fellow African believerswho all came from Egypt, decided to be follower of Christ. This great testimony of brave faith dignity in Christ, trust, confidence in God, courage, resilience endured to end by death. Had reassurance of in Christ to receive reward of overcomer’s crown of life and resurrection in the eternal life. They accepted their predestined faith with hope in Christ with full assurance of salvation. Evangelical Christians agree it is never too late to become a Christian in life referring to man crucified with Jesus who asked, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him “Truly I tell you today you will be with me in paradise in Bible in Luke 23:43. Great faith is a testimony badge of honour to Christ. Revelation 6:9 says Lamb Jesus opens fifth seal, saw under altar, souls of those slain for word of God and testimony  upheld.          image9 (1)


Revelation 6:9-12 says souls under the altar in heaven asked God to take vengeance on murderers. Those slain in the LORD says Revelation 14:13 are blessed for their testimony in Christ so demand God acts to intervene. And Jesus also said in Revelation 2:10, Do not be afraid of what you suffer or go throughBe faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life. Such a testimony of an amazing triumph of faith in adversity by not loving their lives unto death because they will resurrect and live again in Christ. Jesus said if anyone believes in him, though he dies yet shall live in forever in eternity. Jesus said in John 11:24, l am the resurrection and the life he who believes in me though dies has an everlasting life. In Revelation 12:11 in Bible, they overcame satan by the blood of Lamb, and word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. The murder of Ish-Bosheth by two of his army-captains, Rechab and Baanah who assassinated him asleep in bed in c 1005 B.C. recorded in 2 Samuel 4:5. They said to king David in Hebron, behold head of Ishbosheth son of Saul your enemy. King David punished murderers who expected reward. Jehovah Nissi gives justice  to saints in Christ. According to Luke 18:1-8 God brings justice on earth in Jesus Son of  Of God and Son of Man Who surely finds genuine faith tested tried in faithful loyal 21 Coptic believers of Egypt. Coptic Church is founded in 1st century A.D. by St. Mark author Gospel of Mark. The majority of Christians in Egypt members of Coptic Orthodox Church with about 15 million members.             lesson-9-the-four-horsemen-18-728 (1)


On camera, one of the militants could be seen asking Ayairga: “Do you reject Christ?” He responded boldly: “Their God is my God.” He then became “one of the 21 men who laid down their lives for faith in Christ,” advocacy group ‘voice of martyrs,’ monitors the plight of the persecuted Christians in area. Ayairga’s death is like preacher John Baptist beheaded for preaching righteousness to Herod who married his brother Philip’s wife. Ayairga,  identified as Samuel A. Wilson, recognized by friends after IS released video footage of massacre. He had been missing since January 2015, Christians said. New revelations about his death came after Ethiopia ended 3 days of national mourning for Ethiopian Christians who were killed by Islamic State (IS) group militants in Libya refused to convert to Islam. Strong Godly Christlike character of Kamel’s brothers, Bishoi Astefanous Kamel, 25, and Samuel Estefanous Kamel, 22, Milad Makeen Zaky, Abanub Ayad Atiya, Maged Solaiman Shehata, Yusuf Shukry Yunan, Kirollos Shokry Fawzy, Malak Ibrahim Sinweet, Tawadros Yusuf Tawadros, Girgis Milad Sinweet, Mina Fayez Aziz, Hany Abdelmesih Salib, Bishoy Adel Khalaf, Worker from Awr village [name unknown at this time], Ezat Bishri Naseef, Loqa Nagaty, Gaber Munir Adly, Esam Badir Samir, Malak Farag Abram, Sameh Salah Faruqhad went to Libya in search of work they could not find at home. Coptic Orthodox Church announced the 21 Egyptian Christians commemorated as martyrs yearly in Church 8th Amshir Coptic calendar is February 15th Gregorian feast Presentation of Jesus in Temple.            IMG_20180323_014122NOT GIVING UP HOPE

A dozen beheaded on beach, another group of at least 16 being shot in the head in a desert area. Militants were heard calling detainees “followers of the cross from Ethiopian Church.” A masked fighter in black brandishing a pistol made a statement threatening Christians if they did not convert to Islam but all believers refused. The murder of Christians for their faith is not limited to early church history. In many parts of the world it is still happening. In John 16:1-4, Jesus said, these things I tell you, so you will not be offended or stumble to desert God. Persecuted, attacked, thrown out of synagogues, temples, churches, etc. Yea, the time will come when those who kill you think they are doing God’s work or service. They do these things because they do not know the Father God Almighty Jehovah Nissi or His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus prophesied these times come so remember them. In statement to supporters, advocacy group Voice Of Martyrs said it was crucial not to give up hope. “Thank God for unshakable truth to make all things right in HIS perfect timing, despite the evil onslaughts of enemy. Group in contact with the persecuted believers rejoice in knowledge all  21 martyred present with Lord Jesus in heaven in Bible in 2 Corinthians 5:8.” Pray for the grieving loved ones God’s Compassion, Comforting presence be experienced in special way providing and meeting needs,” says the group prayer message. Pray God shortens evil days pray for martyr families, for God’s Mercy on God and Jesus’ believers! Martyrs include Old Testament and Jewish, Christian put to death in the lion’s den and in time of Maccabees; see 2 Macc 6:7–7:42; 4 Macc 5:1–6:30; 8:3–12:19; Hebrew 11:32-38). Those behind visions killed (v. 11), or stated in 14:13 dead who died in LORD as Christians martyred for testimony of Jesus. Leviticus blood sacrifice of bull poured out “at base of altar of burnt offering” (Lev 4:7) says life is in blood of animals, and of humans (Lev 17:11, 14), `life,’ `soul,’ `self,’ sacrificed victims under altar (Boring 1989:125) before throne (4:5-6) under (Greek hypokato) has a strong meaning “below” “beneath” souls under altar in heaven seen on earth. The souls are not disembodied spirits so visible to John although “lives” slaughtered as victims.


Believer’s physical death has the final resurrection as John’s vision of the souls the people with voices, real bodies, beheaded souls in Revelations 20:4. Martyrs, bear testimony (Greek martyria, v. 9) were “killed” (v. 11) for testimony of Christ. Abel, first martyr, “still speaks, though dead” (Heb 11:4; compare Gen 4:10) so they cry out for justice to be done. Their prayer (v. 10) is the heart of the fifth seal “prayers of the saints” (5:8; compare 8:3-4). So Christian martyrs considered a direct path to sainthood many names recognized as saints. In living history from creation time righteous people in the Lord are slain. Generations of millions of the saints slain for their faith in Christ recorded. List too long to publish but known to God to seek vengeance on their behalf. Revelations 20:4 says souls of beheaded for witness of Jesus, for word of God, did not worship beast, his image, not received mark on foreheads or their hands live again in the eternal life.


Beheaded for Christ Chief International Correspondent  BosNewsLife | h/t Glen Roberts @Trop


These 4 blood moons were foretold as part of the coming events before the rapture and the second coming of Jesus 7 years later after rapture to fulfil the great and terrible day of the Lord. Among the modern proponents of blood moon prophecies are teachings from the Bible on the Blood Moon Prophecy by some Christian ministers, such as John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which states ongoing tetrad of a series of 4 consecutive lunar eclipses aligning with Jewish Holidays of 6 full moons in between with no intervening partial lunar eclipses. Mark Blitz points out that this is only the ninth time in 2000 years that this has happened where a Tetrad has all four Blood Moons occurring on Jewish feast days.  The number “Nine” in Hebrew has the meaning of ‘judgment.’  The last Blood Moon of this Tetrad will be a Super Moon appearing larger than usual. The eclipsed moon will be setting over Jerusalem on a feast day. In the very middle of the Shemitah Jewish Year is a Solar Eclipse.  This eclipse path will be in the North Atlantic between Iceland and Ireland travelling north-east into the Arctic Ocean.

In the Jewish tradition this is a sign of bad things to occur for nations of the world. In Leviticus chapter 25 God commands his people to not plant the fields on the seventh year.  This is to be a Sabbath Year to rest and honor God. During this year all debts are to be forgiven, slaves set free, the land is to rest, and the economy of the land will be reduced. Shemitah Years can bring down economies, kingdoms or nations that do not follow God’s will.  If the people follow God’s Laws the nation is blessed that this time; if not it, can mean bad times for a nation.  In Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s book The Mystery of the Shemitah he explains the many unique  important events have happen in history on Shemitah Years. this is the first time in 2000 years that a Tetrad of four Blood Moons has occurred all on Jewish feast days and in a Shemitah Year!  An unprecedented event. During the last Jubilee Year in 1967, State of Israel took possession of Jerusalem for the first time in 2000 years.

Jerusalem is the holy city in which Solomon built the Temple that God lived in, and Abraham was about to sacrifice his son Isaac.  It is also the city where God had his son Jesus sacrificed for mankind’s sins. In September 2015 we start a new Jubilee year.  The new Jubilee starts with a partial solar eclipse.  It is of special note that this is 40th Jubilee Year since Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem.  It is the 70th Jubilee year since the first one proclaimed by God. The number 40 is the Biblical time period of redemption. The number 70 has the Biblical meaning of perfect completion. So this coming Jubilee Year will very likely have very special meaning for mankind. Perfect completion of redemption continues so be prepared! Be right with God. History records blood moons that began with number of Tetrads per Century as follows:- 1. 0-99=0; 2. 100-199=3; 3. 200-299=6; 4. 300-399=4; 5. 400-499=3; 6. 500-599=0; 7. 600-699=0; 8. 700-799=3; 9. 800-899=7; 10. 900-999=6; 11. 1000-1099=0; 12. 1100-1199=0; 13. 1200-1299=0; 14. 1300-1399=6; 15. 1400-1499=4; 16. 1500-1599=6; 17. 1600-1699=0; 18. 1700-1799=0; 19. 1800-1899=0; 20. 1900-1999=5; 21. 2000-2099=8.

What has interested prophecy teachers is not just the number of lunar eclipses in the next two years but the timing of the eclipses. In both 2014 and 2015, a full lunar eclipse will occur on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot the Feast of Tabernacles. In addition to the two lunar eclipses of 2015, two solar eclipses will also occur. Similar lunar eclipses in back-to-back years have happened seven times since the time of Christ. Some occurred in years of significance for the Jewish people, such as 1948 when Israel was granted statehood and 1967 when the Six-Day War was fought. References to a moon like “blood” are found in two passages of the Bible. Joel 2:30–31 says, “I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” In Revelation 6:12, John describes one of the seal judgments of the Tribulation: “I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood-red and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.

The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.” Other passages refer to the moon being “darkened” in Matthew 24:29 and Joel 2:10. John’s and Joel’s descriptions of the signs of the Day of the Lord refer to these solar and lunar eclipses. Sceptics prefer other explanations of these phenomena occurring as part of changes in the atmosphere mentioned in Revelation 6:12. The blood-red moon prophecies are signs to alert mankind to awaken and respond to God’s Grace and Mercy before His full wrath is unleashed in judgement then it is too late. The Bible warns against setting dates for the coming of the Lord because that day or hour no one knows” except God the Father in Mark 13:32. Jesus Promised He will not leave His believers as orphans but be with us until the end of the age. Jesus already warns of signs of the times in Matthew 24 to prepare and continue to pray for God to shorten the evil days in Jesus Name. Continue God’s will in obedient service to remain as God’s chosen elect among God’s sheep.
