WHAT IS THE TRUTH BEHIND THE SO-CALLED

PALESTINIAN HOMELAND?

 

Once again we have an example of how the politics of the world and Christianity overlap to the point of almost blurring the line of "separation of Church and State", but I feel moved by the Holy Spirit to speak out and instruct those who are in the dark and to give a warning, because what we are seeing today has been prophesized in Holy Scripture and people, especially those who are Christian need to open their eyes to the TRUTH.

 

It is somewhat understandable, to me, for non-Christians and non-Jews to be ignorant of the truth behind the accusations made by the Hamas, the P.L.O., and other Islamic and Arab groups, concerning the Palestinian Home-land issue, which involves the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Jerusalem .

 

For many years now, we have allowed the leftist news media to spoon feed the world one lie after another concerning Israel , Palestine , Jerusalem , etc., and we have allowed these same leftist news media to give a voice to the lies spewed forth by the P.L.O., Hamas and the rest of the Islamic and Arab terrorist groups. However, if one is a Christian, then there is NO EXCUSE to be taken in by these lies and half-truths. If your priests, ministers and pastors are doing their jobs, all Christians should know what Holy Scripture has to say about the Holy Land , and if the schools were doing their jobs, every student, when studying history, would also know the TRUTH.

 

What is the TRUTH? In the Book of Ezekiel, God says, speaking of Jerusalem and the surrounding lands, " This land is My land, and I have placed My Name upon the land". The Lord God, gave the land to His chosen people, the Israelites. When Israel and Judea were conquered, and the people were taken into captivity, God did NOT cede the land to anyone else, as it was His plan to have the scattered Israelites return to their homeland and to re-establish their nation. Therefore, contrary to popular belief, either political or religious, the Jews, the people of Israel , have a Biblical and historical claim to the land. There NEVER was a Palestinian Homeland.

 

In the 1800's, various well known individuals, among which was Samuel Clemens (better known as Mark Twain), made trips to the Holy Land and described, in great detail, what the land was like. Samuel Clemens' description was: "Of all the lands there are for dismal scenery, I think Palestine must be the prince. The hills are barren... The valleys are unsightly deserts fringed with a feeble vegetation that has an expression about it of being sorrowful and despondent... It is a hopeless, dreary, heartbroken land... Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes... Over it broods the spell of a curse that has withered its fields and fettered its energies... Nazareth is forlorn;... Jericho ...accursed... Jerusalem ...a pauper village... Palestine is desolate and unlovely."  This led Lord Arthur James Balfour to use a phrase coined by British lord Shaftesbury in 1884, when Balfour said: "A land without people for a people without a land".

 

Prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in May of 1948, the area known as Palestine , was devoid of people with the exception of nomadic Arab tribes-men. With the establishment of the State of Israel, the Jews, returning to the area from all around the world, began to transform the land from barren dessert to fertile farm land through and aggressive program of tree planting and agricultural programs and an establishment of Kibutzes (communal farms). Today, Israel is the main supplier of oranges and other citrus fruits to the western European countries. As Israel continued to flourish and prosper, many of the nomadic Arabs and Arabs from Jordan and Egypt began to flood into the area to work. Along with these immigrant workers, came hard-line Islamic extremists who could not stand to see Israel succeed. Their only desire, even to this day, is to utterly destroy Israel and to wipe the Jews from the face of the earth. This long-standing animosity toward the Israelites goes all the way back to Ishmael and Jacob ( Israel ).

 

When God promised Abraham and his wife Sarah (both were well up in years and childless) a child, they did not believe, due to their advanced years, that such a thing could be possible, so Sarah gave her maid Hagai to Abraham to bear a child. Hagai became pregnant and bore a son, naming him Ishmael. But this was NOT God's intent. His intent was for Sarah to bear a child. In due time Sarah bore a son and named him Jacob, later to be known as Israel . God's promise to Abraham was that his son Jacob would become the father of many who would be more numerous than the sands of the earth. When Hagai asked God, "What about my son Ishmael?" God answered: "Ishmael will also become the father of many, but that he will always be in contention and have animosity toward his brother through out history." Jacob ( Israel ) produced twelve sons who would become the founders of the twelve tribes of Israel , and Ishmael's descendants are the modern day Arabs. Both the Israelites and the Arabs are known as Semitic People. God also made another promise, which was a 'conditional promise', which was: "Those who bless My people Israel , to them I will pour out My blessings upon them, and to those who curse My people, I will curse them."

 

The name Palestine is the modern Arab word for "Philistine". During the Six Day War, the Israeli Army conquered the Gaza Strip, NOT from the Palestinians, but from Egypt , and the area known as the West Bank was conquered from Jordan , NOT from Palestine . Israel also took  the Golan Heights from Syria , as legitimate spoils of war, and held these areas as buffer zones to aid in defending their land. Contrary to those who would like to rewrite history, this IS A HISTORICAL fact. Israel , when conquering Jerusalem , made one BIG mistake, if they had done according to God's wishes and removed the mosque from the Temple Mount , they would have avoided a lot of the problems they are facing today. By not doing so, this allowed the Islamists a chance to perpetrate one more lie claiming the mosque as one of their most holy sites.

 

Today, we are constantly being fed the lie, by our President and other political leaders, that Islam is a peaceful religion. Either these leaders are totally ignorant of history or they are out�and�out lying to us. The Islamic (Moslem) religion, right from the start was spread by the sword and it was based on lies. The Koran is a mixture of things taken from the both the Old and New Testaments, in dispersed with falsehoods from the mind of Mohammad and his followers. Using the Temple Mount Mosque as an excuse, the P.L.O. is demanding that the Jews give up Jerusalem because since the Mosque is one of their holiest sites, they demand that Jerusalem be the capitol of their Palestinian homeland. Go back and read the Scriptures of the New Testament, especially the Four Gospels, during the period that Jesus physically walked the land, there was NO mosque on the Temple Mount . The Temple Mount is where Solomon's Temple stood. It is where the Jews worshipped, it is where Jesus, as a twelve year old boy, was found by his parents (Mary and Joseph) teaching the elders, it is where Jesus as a man, angrily overturned the tables of the moneychangers. The mosque, known as the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, was not built until well over a thousand years after Christ's crucifixion. It was built over the burial spot of Abraham, which is sacred to the Jews. The fact that Israel failed to remove the mosque, under pressure from the United States and Europe, at the end of the Six Day War, has fulfilled another warning to Israel from God: "If you do not remove these people from My land, I will make them a thorn in your side", and "I will cause Jerusalem to become a cup of trembling to the world".

 

The P.L.O. (Palestinian Liberation Organization) never had any legal or historical claims to the land. Yasser Arafat lied, when he appeared before the United Nations General Assembly with a gun strapped to his waist, and accused Israel of invading and stealing the land from the Palestinian people and removing them from their farms and homeland, and the leftist leaning news media played up Arafat's lies. When Israel , under the leadership of Menagam Bagin, was forced, by the United States and the European countries, to make concessions to the P.L.O., to give up land for peace, Yasser Arafat immediately declared himself to be the president of Palestine . These concessions go against God's plan, since He owns the land and gave it to Israel . It is NOT Israel 's land to give to anyone. Not once has the P.L.O. or Hamas ever honored any of the agreements that they signed onto, and they have no intentions to live in peace with Israel once they have taken possession of the West Bank and Gaza Strip lands. Israel will find itself surrounded by enemies on all sides. Can you not see how the nations of the earth are aligning themselves, according to the Scriptures, for the coming battle of Armageddon, when all the nations come against Israel ?

 

We, as a nation, will regret the misguided political actions of our leaders, going back to President Jimmy Carter all the way up to President George W. Bush, that have forced Israel to make concessions to the P.L.O and Hamas and give up land. God WILL curse us, as He promised. Giving up land in Gaza and the West Bank will NOT bring peace in the middle east. As Israel is emptying out the settlements and removing and uprooting the Jewish settlers from their homes, to turn the land over to the P.L.O., the Palestinian Liberation Organization, along with Hamas, are openly declaring victory over Israel and claiming that their campaign of violence has worked and they are vowing to continue with their violence until Israel gives up Jerusalem and they have completely wiped Israel from the face of the earth. Despite what they may say in the political arena, neither the P.L.O. nor Hamas has ever really agreed with Israel 's RIGHT to exist.

 

How much longer will we, as Christians, remain silent while our government continues to sell out Israel ? How much longer will we, as Christians, remain silent as we are lied to about how peaceful and wonderful Islam is? How will God judge us if we turn our backs on His people Israel ? Will you accept the TRUTH or will you turn a blind eye to the TRUTH and choose to believe a lie? The choice is yours to make, but will you make the right choice?

    There are unscrupulous people on the internet these days.  Some of them are not who they claim to be and in order to disrupt honest spiritual pursuits, they are known to send out e-mail under someone else's name or the name of another church or jurisdiction with attachments.  Anyone can do this, if they want.  Some of them exist in Toledo, Ohio... Some in Texas... Others in Michigan, California and many other places... Some are "haters of truth" who follow (whether they are willing to admit it ) those who have sway over less educated or ignorant people... as their are also those who do not even know what they are doing because they seek glory to satisfy their own vanity and selfish pride to take over a church or jurisdiction of another, or to wreck havoc over those whom they hate without considering the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ. 

 

    If you should ever receive an e-mail with an attachment claiming to be from anyone at "apostle1.com" - "apostle1.org" or even "apostle1.net" - - - know that our policy is to not send out e-mail from any of our domain names with an attachment except to those only who know us.  Please note that apostle1.com news messages not include file attachments. If you receive an email not meeting these strict guidelines, please do not open it under any circumstances. Instead, forward it to apostle1.com (thaddeus@apostle1.com) so its contents can be examined by our various affiliates. Therefore, don't open it! If you receive any e-mail from apostle1.com, apostle1.org or apostle1.net and have never before communicated with us... even if you have communicated with us... verify, verify and again, verify.  And, We do not open e-mail that is not identifiable or known to us either.

 

Unless we know exactly from whom an e-mail comes... nothing is clicked on or opened, especially those with attachments!  You would be surprised from whom 'hate' e-mail arrives and what attempts and extremes they go to make their e-mails "look" official when it is a lone person(s)  who hate TRUTH and love lies, hate anything from being posted that involves TRUTH because they may be affected with exposure to the LIVING TRUTH of Jesus Christ's Love. 

 

Also: Hang Up Telephone Calls constantly get to you?

We get them all the time.  But one thing we do many are unaware of... We keep an automatic telephone log and then we turn them over to the same group who monitors and interacts with the hackers, etc.

It no longer matters if the caller telephones once in a day, every other day or every day or several times a week, once a week or for several months... All get logged, even those who think they have escaped notice by using the actual I.D. Caller number of "000-000-0000" which is has been used, even those who don't show up on caller I.D. as hang-ups now. With new technology being what it is it only takes one ring at a person's (receiving phone to activate some of the new technology being used which locks the caller's phone number in, even when they use by-pass alternate numbers to make shrewd calls).  We are advised one caller is facing terrorism criminal charges even though he used three different go-through numbers ranging all around the world, but were found to originate their call from California.  Hmmm.... what does this tell you?   Others, we are advised were found to be out of Michigan, Ohio, even Illinois and another state.

It is known that a telephone number showing up on some caller I.D.'s may actually be a telephone service provider phone number, yet... they too keep logs and information as to each individual cellular or local (their locale) phone usage... 

In the not-to-distant future, we intend to post some of those telephone numbers and, hopefully, persons, which constantly show up as "harassing hang-up" callers.  May be, you too have the same? 

Keep Watch!

Those who do such unscrupulous things, HATE some of the news, quotes, and such as to inform the general public.  Some of them pose as clergy, while a few are actually clergy from various "other" offshoot AMERICAN ORTHODOX CHURCH or other jurisdiction(s) of the same or similar name of which we are, in some instances, their former MOTHER CHURCH (as is the same named Toledo, Ohio based, an offshoot, who had once been a part of us and unknowingly to our unworthy selves, were once a part of the clergy but they did not obtain permission to leave the jurisdiction they were under, according to Canon, and thus obtained for themselves re-ordination and consecrations, several times... and then using a variety of church names, including our own after they were defrocked and excommunicated, having more than three (3) times being excommunicated by other legitimate apostles/bishops); having joined in and with  "Independent" churches who have nothing to do with us or even true Orthodoxy.  We have the information on their numerous "Paper Church" names and name changes.  But the real issue is whether they were ever truly an ordained Priest and bishop?

 

It is true that when one is ordained to the priesthood, the old saying of "Once a Priest, always a priest forever..." holds true... But where there has been or is deception and fraud involved, the old saying is invalid altogether which is the stool kicked out from under any subsequent consecrations as a Bishop for the Episcopacy has then been obtained on a sheet of lies and therefore they are frauds, wolves in sheep's clothing.  The problem here is with civil authorities and agencies. 

 

Any documents a false one obtains from those who ordained him, including subsequent documents relating to consecrations; civil authorities never (or hardly ever) verify their validity and thus issue their own documents and errantly recognize the individual. 

 

These false sheep in wolf's clothing seek to go out of their way to character assassinate and disparage religious web sites who do not meet their own brand of standardization and those who know where the proverbial "bones are buried on them" which is evidence of the wolf not being "Orthodox" "Christian" or even "Catholic" no matter what their nomenclature corporate name may be.  The Toldeo, Ohio based same or similar named person/group under his/their so-called leader has been deposed, defrocked and excommunicated more than three different times by various bishops/apostles.  He, and several others, have become just as bad as the modern day Ecumenists of the National Council of Churches, World Council of Churches, the World Council of Bishops and more.  It matters not now... whether they use the so-called name of "Athonite" "Benedictine" "Celtic" "Old Roman" "Old Catholic" - etc..  A name does not make one Christian. Their ultimate aim and goal is destruction to those from whom they had either originated from or gone through to obtain the same or similar named "church" they claim to hold to by the state's civil law in which they reside alone.  They are not a "Schema-monk" or even a true "monk" for they were deposed and excommunicated for violations of the Holy Rule they claim to subscribe to, giving and openly providing false misleading and inaccurate information about other more honorable clergy.  These 'wolves in sheep's clothing attract other nefarious and questionable persons whose aims are similar: for fame, image, power and glory, and if it should be that 'fortunes' come along, all the more is their power based.

 

    Remember, anything that is a HALF TRUTH is not truth but a lie!  Many there are that you may know who fit those descriptions... pray for them.  Pray that God will send his Spirit of Truth upon them and lead them to Salvation through tears of Repentance, conversion of their cold and calculating hearts toward seeking forgiveness from God and those whom they attempt to harm. 

 

    Those who receive e-mail from us, know who we are and from where we send mail.  There are also many who know that they can send e-mail under another group or person's e-mail address, which has been happening.  If you receive e-mail that purports itself to be from us, verify first by hitting your "reply" button and ask, "I received this e-mail but would like verification if it is from you.

 

    If you are of another jurisdiction, you too could find that your parishioners, clergy and faithful might become subject to the same as we have recently found. 

 

    Let this be a warning to visitors so as to be safeguarded against unscrupulous e-mails which contain viruses, worms and unsavory material from person(s) organizations or institutions that are more self-serving than uplifting and informatively news worthy. 

 

    For ourselves, we have, as in the past, so once again, acquired the assistance of those who are able and capable of tracing e-mails back to their source and taking appropriate action in North America. 

 

    We have learned that the organization we subscribe to, whose members come from various legal and law enforcement backgrounds amongst other areas of society, are committed to the faith even though they may hold different theologies.  Yet, in their monitoring of electronic communications of various persons or people, they do not always make haste to bring perpetrators to justice until after enough evidence has been gained in order to build a solid case.  We do not always know what information they have gained, but we do know the organization, whom we've been asked not to name, has had a 97% success rate in bringing to justice and obtaining a conviction against individuals, people, and sometimes even religious organizations of a persona that gives the appearance of both secular and religious bearing but who abuse and misuse technology.  The organization views those who abuse and misuse the internet and other technologies as nothing more than a form of "domestic terrorism" - - - - and, it would seem to appear that the courts are in agreement!

 

 Those kinds of people, organizations, etc. who misuse and abuse communication technologies are no different than those who attempt to use coercive measures, and in some instance, even blackmail for the same idea is involved... to cause havoc and wreckage, to destroy the spirit and activity of those who struggle in the faith out of pain of heart for the Orthodox Church which is TRUTH. The degree that some have been known to go to, as seen by other jurisdictions, is to take advantage of questionably mentally challenged or those who have a lack of education and understanding to get them to make statements, even outright lies, in writing, in order to destroy.  Such persons or groups are spiritual terrorists for unholy and un-Orthodox causes, aims and goals.

 

    Yes, our Metropolitan Archbishop, +Joseph Thaddeus, SSJt., Ph.D. strongly defends the Seals of the Confessional for such leads to true Repentance in thought, word and deed whereby the penitent is required to make amends, where possible, to seek forgiveness of those harmed by his actions whether real or imagined, and to give his forgiveness to those who have harmed him before taking the Holy Body and Blood in the Eucharist, Jesus the Christ.  The reality of this understanding is bound up in and with the findings for which cause he, himself, had been character assassinated by his detractors who claim the courts prevented him from breaking the Seals of the Confessional which is not the truth at all.... Click here to see what another bishop's findings are...

 

    The workings of Holy Spirit will not be daunted by those who attempt to cause disruption!  It is for these and other reasons that you are urged to read what true repentance and forgiveness means for real "Christians".

About:

Apostle1.com, Apostle1.org and Apostle1.net

We are an educational, News-informational and research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life.

A few have sent us inquiries as to why we post information and/or articles relating to what might be considered as political and sometimes from other Protestants .  And the reply is much the same as it states on the entry page....  We Are:

A Non-Profit Religious Hosting Service

and

an Educational, News, Informational and Research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life for various

Traditional Orthodox Jurisdictions

While the answer and question above is not sufficient for some to understand, we take the view (which we believe is ORTHODOX) that all things pertinent to life and living affects, and has an effect, upon not just our belief (Orthodox), but (for many) the way in which we act in accordance with our belief, our very faith. 

Because this is a highly Protestant Country in which we live, having an effect upon the laws of the land, we should know something of what is on-going and where efforts by those denominations may affect and have a intrinsic effect on our very laws, for such does have an effect upon our daily lives as Orthodox Catholic Christians. 

If one is not cognizant of the real events happening both locally and in the world, although many are removed from the world... one will not know what to expect or what to do, or how one can or cannot act which might betray one's faith and accrue the wrath of civil authorities as laws change.  Yet, we are also reminded that these things must happen and it was for that which there exists many early Christian Martyrs and Saints. 

While we can remove ourselves from the world, we still live in it.  And for the faithful, theirs is a struggle for knowledge and understanding.  All things are pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith which is the very foundation of Christianity.  As such, we can not abandon them and leave them blind to events and happenings. 

What we post as related to those things similar to various articles which might have a political theme or non-Orthodox Catholic Christian content of sorts ... does not mean or imply that we are supportive of, for, or against something articulated in an article, so much as it is NEWS and our faithful should be made aware, for such may be the very thing that will impact their day-to-day life.  It is for them, their free will... to judge the relevancy.

Remember, not all Protestants, especially hard core cultic groups such as "Charismatic" - "Evangelical" "Promise Keepers" "Church of Christ" "Methodism" "Pentecostals" "Jehovah's Witnesses" "Mormons" and other people are not so generous in their viciousness toward anyone and anything that appears "Catholic" whether of the Roman or Orthodox jurisdictions, for they do not know or want to learn that which makes them "different" in their walk and talk as being far from the roots of Christianity. 

Remember, it is the Roman jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which has more outwardly shown that it can be one of the most vicious toward those who are not Roman but are very much "Catholic" - for the sun and moon does not rise and set on the Vatican (Latin or Roman) jurisdiction as to who is or is not "Catholic" for the Roman jurisdiction split (schismed) from the roots of "Catholicism" which is founded in what is termed and called today as "Orthodoxy".

Any good article or piece of information will be considered so long as it is not defamatory or slanderous toward an individual when not based on TRUTH or FACT, or which is altered out of context from its original publishing by recognized sources. All new articles submitted, after viewing and recommendations, are passed to our Editor, our Vladyka, +Joseph Thaddeus, OSB, SSJt., Ph.D.

   "It would be better to have ten (10) true repentant X-felons who ask for and give true forgiveness than it would be to have one (1) non-x-felon or common person whose self-righteousness exceeds even the Pharisees, Sadducees, the gossip mongers, slanderers and un-repentant; for the repentant x-felon understands the true meaning of the Church's purpose as being the spiritual hospital."

Yes... "Prejudice Makes Prisoners of the Hated and the Hater..." (1992-Fr. Alan Stanford)

 

One can ask, "What part of 'Prejudice' and 'hate' do you not understand?  Are you a complacent person?  In light of the saying, examine yourself!  You may be surprised if you are honest with yourself for your soul may convict you before Jesus Christ convicts you in the times to come!

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit." Psalms 32:1-2
