David’s Comment: The Trojan Horse Rides Again
2 Cor 2:11 Do not be ignorant of the enemy and his devices
The ‘good‘ people of Troy had been held under seige. They had managed to keep their Greek enemy out for a long time, but the Greeks devised a plan. They built a huge wooden horse with which they planned to deceive and defeat the Trojans. I am sure most of you know the rest of the story. The Greek army retreated leaving the huge wooden horse behind as a ‘gift’, which the unsuspecting ‘good’ people of Troy brought inside the city gates. That was the downfall of Troy.
Over the last 40 – 50 years the Western world has been making the same mistake as the Trojans did. We have opened up our gates and invited millions of worshippers of another god into our nations. Of course not all Muslims are radical terrorists now, but that is not to say they wont be in the future. They are possessed and controlled by Allah – an evil murderous demonic spirit, and they have been slowly but steadily increasing their numbers in the major cities of Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. However now that slow process is becoming a flood and unfortunately that is not an exaggeration. It is happening right before our very eyes on the borders of Hungary, Greece, Italy, Germany, Austria and Sweden. Thousands of them every day, fleeing the death and destruction that fellow Muslims cause in their own countries. And thousands of them are camped out in France trying to get across the channel into Britian. On Facebook – One of the Saudi Leaders is quoted that they are all encouraging the refugee crisis in Europe to spread Islam:
The Trogan Horse is riding again and the end result will be the same – the end of the Western nations as we have known them to be.
The other point of concern is that the large Muslim communities that are already embedded in the cities of Europe and the West hate Israel and the Jewish people. Most recent attacks against Jews in the world have been carried out by Muslim immigrants. And now tens of thousands more anti-Semitic Muslims are pouring into these cities, thus making it even more dangerous for the Jewish people who live there. However there is a positive aspect to this – it is going to become even more umcomfortable for Jews to remain in the Diaspora, hopefully encouraging them to make Aliyah and return to the Promised Land, where they must be before Yeshua can return (Acts 3:21}
Josie and I have been watching the news in almost disbelief as the ‘good’ people of Europe stand and applaud as the refugees pour into their countries. Past experience tells us that these people dont assimilate into our society, but they expect us to change to suit them. It is simply another form of Islamic Jihad which will result in Islam taking over the western world if it is not stopped now.
This insane phomenon was given a major boost by the media pictures of the Syrian child who drowned. As usual the liberal, left wing, God of Israel hating media people are very subtlely manipulating the way their readers think. What most of the media did not tell us was that the dead boys father is a people smuggler who was reportedly driving the boat. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/latest-news/abdullah-kurdi-a-people-smuggler-migrant/story-fn3dxiwe-1227523239092?sv=3f053265acf6d3b0533c9e8b78027d77
To confirm what I am saying is indeed the case, I will quote some excerpts from 2 reports that I received last week ………..
1/ THE SYRIAN INVASION OF EUROPE: A DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY By Frosty Wooldridge September 7, 2015 NewsWithViews.com
In the past week, Germany and Austria opened their doors to a human mob numbering in the tens of thousands. Syrian refugees and other Africans flooded into Europe, smashed the doors down and poured into Western society. And most of them: Muslims. Unable to maintain viable civilizations, they race toward successful countries, ultimately to destroy everything they inhabit. The walls have come tumbling down. The Germans and Austrians have thrown their borders wide open. Syrian migrants in their tens of thousands are pouring in. Soon there will be almost a million of them, with an endless queue forming behind them. Word will get out to Africans and Asians: ‘The West is weak. They have given up. Their resistance is broken. Pick up your bags and let’s join the stream.’ We will remember this day for the rest of our lives. This is the day we lost our civilization. The enemy is within our gates, and more and more will pour in. We are finished.
2/. Germany Just Spent $6.6 Billion to Become a Muslim Country
Where are the 57 countries that make up the world’s Islamic constituency ? Oh – this has just been explained, has it not? The Islamic confederacies are deliberately ignoring the issue to deliver Islam into our homes. Says the Saudi authority — We already have a lot of Muslims here. We don’t need any more. Apparently we do. Lucky for these Syrians that they are indeed Muslims. If they were Jews they wouldn’t stand a chance. For the Jews in the same spot only a generation ago, no tears, no hugs, no welcoming arms, no open borders, no cry to help these people – notthing. Nothing but silence, the silence of complicity.
That Syrian infant washed up on shore. The world weeps. One and a half million Jewish babies never even got that far. Every door was closed. The refugee ship St. Louis tried to find an open door but was sent back. The New York Times could not be bothered. The paper that covered the Holocaust on page 36 as part other news, today lobbies and campaigns to bring Syrians into the United States – FRONT PAGE. But most of the good luck goes to the Syrians. They have the right papers. The Jews in the same situation always had the wrong papers and were always standing in the wrong line. Canada’s Mackenzie King government spoke for Canada. Asked how many Jewish refugees it was willing to absorb, a high-placed official uttered these famous words “None is too many..” He spoke for the world. He is still speaking for the world. A generation later its the same scorn, but this time it is for Jews who have come home to the Land of Israel.
Saudi Arabai has reportedly responded to the growing number of refugees flooding into Europe by offering to build 200 Mosques in Germany
Tomorrow is already here, but there is more coming. For you, dear Europe, there is no stopping Islam.
Very, very serious words and the timing is also very intersting – the end of a Biblical Shemetah year and the likely beginning of a Jubilee year. Could this be ‘payback time’ for Israel and the Jewish people ?
As servants of the LORD, we are called to show compassion to those in need, but not to the point of destroying our own once ‘Christian’ nations. We would have a serious heart issue if we were not deeply moved by the suffering of our fellow human beings, but we must see what is behind it, and where it is heading. So what are the options ? Here are some suggestions I have come up with.
1/ The UN and NATO forces should have dealt with the Syrian Civil war years ago and prevented the spread of ISIS which is now expanded to ISIL
2/ I am sure it would have worked out far less costly in the long term for the Western nations to have paid for and built new cities of refuge for these people in their own countries, or in other Muslim countries, And what about the mega rich, oil drenched Arab nations – what are they doing to help their fellow Muslims ? They could build many more Dubais if they really cared to. Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air-conditioned tents already erected that can house 3 million people. These tents are sitting empty and no refugees have been taken in. http://www.infowars.com/saudi-arabia-has-100000-empty-air-conditioned-tents-that-can-house-3-million-people-yet-has-taken-zero-refugees/
3/ As individuals we can send money or resouces to assist the displaced people to rebuild their lives. https://www.youtube.com/embed/LPjzfGChGlE
4/ Although the manipulative news media shows a lot of women and children, some reports I have receive state that a large number of these immigrants are young, single men,
seeking a better life away from their war-torn countries. As one NZ politician said ” they should go back and fight for their country’s survival.” Then in the case of genuine
refugees with absolutely no other options, we should take them in and show them real Christian compassion and kindness. We can then take the opportunity to introduce
them to the true God – the God of Israel and His Suffering Servant Son,Yeshua the Messiah of all mankind. But lets learn from the Muslim nations and tell them that they are
welcome, but their Korans and Mosques are not !
A few days after I wrote this comment, Hungary closed its borders and erected a high fence to keep the illegal immigrants out, and it seems Germany has worken up to the fact that their nation will be overwhelmed, and have taken steps to limit the flood of immigrants pouring in.
On a positive note the Next Biblical Event – Yom Kippur For the majority of Jewish people who have not yet accepted the sacrifice of Yeshua as their blood atonement, Wednesday Sept 23rd is Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. Even though there is no atonement for anyone apart from the Blood of Yeshua, the majority of Jewish people observe Yom Kippur (as instructed in the Torah). Let’s thank YHVH for sending us His Lamb and lets stand with the Jewish people this Yom Kippur and pray for the veil to be lifted so that they can also see the Lamb of God, and have their sins washed away.
The Lord bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the God of Israel . Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their God. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for that breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.
Shabbat Shalom …….. David & Josie
THIS WEEKS NEWS REPORTS
1. Syrian Refugees in Italy Still See Israel as The Enemy Times of Israel News Sept 12
Mahmoud’s nightmarish journey across the Mediterranean Sea from Libya was marred by beatings, starvation and dehydration, and the fear of drowning in rough waters. Yet despite the cruelty at the hands of Libyan smugglers, despite the suffering that was inflicted upon them by their own government that forced them to flee for their lives, Mahmoud’s family and other Syrian refugees still view Israel as their real enemy. “First of all I respect all religions, including Judaism… In Syria we have all races and religions living together, we are all brothers… but Israel, Israel is the ultimate enemy, that’s what we’ve been told since we were kids,” said baby Mahmud’s cousin Adman, 21, who studied tourism in Syria. Sitting with her parents and brother, Mais, 21, is another refugee from Syria whose family also harbors strong resentment towards Israel. “Israel is a colonial power, that’s it. They stole the Palestinians’ land,” her mother Inaia was quick to respond when asked her thoughts on the subject. Lets pray that Europe wakes up to the folly of allowing so many Muslims into their countries
2. Israel’s Ambassador Accuses the UN of Being Toothless Times of Israel News Sept 12th
Outgoing Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor slammed the agency as “toothless” in addressing Middle East unrest, and denounced its institutionalized discrimination against the Jewish state, in an interview aired Friday. Hours earlier, Prosor delivered his final speech to the UN General Assembly before stepping down as Israel’s ambassador after a four year stint. “I sometimes felt like I was on the game show 1 vs. 100,” he told Channel 2, reflecting on his tenure. Prosor, a former director general of the foreign minister and ambassador to the UK, is being succeeded by hawkish Likud MK Danny Danon, who was fired as deputy defense minister last year for denouncing the government’s ostensible soft policy on tackling Hamas in Gaza. “Almost every day I felt it: I’m talking about institutionalized discrimination,” said Prosor of the UN climate. “It’s incomprehensible that this body will sponsor resolutions against Israel every year for 20 years, and only pass one against Syria or Islamic State,” he said.
Prosor charged the UN was ineffective in its dealings with Iran, Syria and the rest of the Middle East. “Is the UN really solving what’s happening in Syria, or the genocides taking place in the other major conflict zones around the world?” he asked. Prosor pointed to the Iranian representatives who refused to speak or interact with him or any other member of the Israeli delegation as further proof of the agency’s inadequate diplomatic efforts. Prosor voiced support for his successor Danon, saying “I’m confident that he will be able to succeed in the task of protecting the state of Israel on the diplomatic front.” In his final speech to the Assembly, Prosor derided the UN decision authorizing the Palestinians to raise their flag at UN headquarters in New York. Please pray for Danny Danon as he takes over as he steps into ‘the lion’s den’ that the UN General Asmbly has become
3. PM Netanyahu Calls Emergency Meeting ICEJ News Sept 15th
Rioting broke out on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City on Tuesday for the third straight day, as dozens of young Palestinians wearing masks and hurling rocks and firecrackers attacked Israeli police who were escorting Jewish and Christian visitors to the site. The US State Department reacted by issuing formulaic condemnations for “acts of violence” and demands for “restraint from all sides” while Jordan’s King Abdullah issued his own formulaic condemnations for what he called Israel’s “acts of aggression against Moslem holy sites” in Jerusalem. “Any more provocation in Jerusalem will affect the relationship between Jordan and Israel,” Abdullah said. “Jordan will not have a choice but to take actions, unfortunately.” Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu planned to convene and emergency security cabinet meeting at the close of the Rosh Hashanah holiday on Tuesday evening to address the situation. Please pray for the situation in Jerusalem to calm down and that God will inspire the Israeli government to take back full control over the Temple Mount – and ultimately that the Mosque be removed
4. PM Netanyahu to Visit White House Times of Israel News Sept 17th
The White House on Wednesday confirmed that US President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet in Washington on November 9. It will be the first formal meeting between the two leaders in months. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the two men will discuss the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal and other regional issues, as well as efforts to counter the Islamic State’s activities in the region. Obama pointedly refused to see Netanyahu in March when the Israeli leader appeared before a joint meeting of Congress to harshly criticize the US-negotiated nuclear deal with Iran, which regularly urges Israel’s annihilation. Republican Lawmakers had arranged Netanyahu’s appearance without White House input.
In his annual pre-High Holidays call to Jewish rabbis, Obama said that he was ready to meet with Netanyahu during the United Nations’ General Assembly opening session, which starts next week and runs through October 6. Netanyahu until now has rebuffed such overtures because of his disagreements with the US leader. “Our consultations have already begun with Israeli military and intelligence officials,” Obama said during the call. “My hope is to have a long discussion with Mr. Netanyahu about these issues when he comes to the United Nations during the General Assembly of the United Nations, or immediately after that,” he said. Congressional Republicans failed this week to block the nuclear deal with Iran from going forward. We still need to ask GOD in prayer to overturn the Iran nuclear agreement
5. Europes Refugee Crisis Arutz 7 News Sept 12th
Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders called the wave of refugees pushing into Europe an “Islamic invasion,” that exposed deep divisions over how the Netherlands should respond to the crisis. Wilders called the wave of refugees passing through Hungary and other countries “an Islamic invasion of Europe, of the Netherlands.” “Masses of young men in their twenties with beards are singing Allahu Akbar across Europe. It’s an invasion that threatens our prosperity, our security, our culture and identity,” he said. Tens of thousands of people, many fleeing war and ISIS in Syria, are trying to get to Germany where Merkel has said they will be allowed to stay. Wilders said the fact that they were pushing northwards through the EU from the Mediterranean indicated many were economic migrants, not refugees. “Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia are safe countries. If you flee them then you are doing it for benefits and a house,” said Wilders, whose Party for Freedom leads Dutch opinion polls. (
Millions of people in Syria could become refugees and head to Europe if there is no end to the war, Peter Salama, UNICEF’s regional director for the Middle East and North Africa, said on Friday 11 September, 2015. “There could be millions and millions more refugees leaving Syria and ultimately going to the European Union and beyond,” he said, adding that almost 8 million people were displaced within Syria. Lets pray that many of these refugees will receive relief – and hear and accept the good news of Yeshua in the midst of their tragic situations
6. Iceland Votes to Boycott ALL Israeli Goods Times of Israel News Sept 17th
Iceland’s capital’s city council voted Tuesday in favor of boycotting all Israeli-made products. The Reykjavik municipality passed the motion, which approved a boycott of Israeli goods “as long as the occupation of Palestinian territories continues,” Council members said the boycott was a symbolic act demonstrating the Icelandic capital’s support for Palestinian statehood and condemnation of Israel’s “policy of apartheid.” Israel’s Foreign Ministry condemned the move, and, in an apparent reference to Iceland’s status as a hotbed of volcanic activity, said “a volcano of hatred spews forth from the Reykjavik city council building. “For no reason or justification, except hatred for its own sake, calls of boycotting the state of Israel are heard,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “We hope someone in Iceland will come to their senses and end the one-sided blindness fielded against Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East.”
One local attorney may step up to the task, the Icelandic news site, visir.is reported. Einar Gautur Steingrímsson claimed that the motion violates the Icelandic constitution. “This is as illegal as refusing to do business with red haired people and it makes no difference whether they justify their decision with references to some alleged actions by the Israelis,” he told the website. Lets pray that the God of Israel will let the people of Iceland know His feelings about this uncalled for boycott
7. Israel Bound Jet Diverted to Save Dogs Live Jerusalem Post Sept 16th
Dogs are mans best friend, and it seems some men know how to return the favor. An Air Canada flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto made an unscheduled landing in Germany after the pilot noticed that the temperature control systems for the luggage compartment were failing. Normally, it would not be a concern, except that on this flight a dog belonging to one of the passengers was being transported in a special cage. As an airplane’s altitude increases, the temperature in the luggage compartment dropsFearing for the health of Simba, a seven-year-old canine, the pilot of flight AC085 informed the 232 passengers on board that he was diverting the plane and landing in Frankfurt. In Germany, the dog and its owner were placed on another plane and flown to Toronto. The total delay was just 75 minutes, and the other passengers accepted the reroute with understanding and empathy. .
