2010 REVIEW AND 2011 HOPES

Hello again folks! I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for visiting my blog: HERESY WATCH: CONTROVERSIAL KEITH this year and to wish you a exhorting; encouraging and praiseworthy New Year! Although it's been a little quiet here in the last quarter of 2010; this 'ol blog has now attained nearly 28,000 visits and - naturally - courted a little controversy.

I have to say that there was a time a couple of months back where I considered halting HW:CK. It wasn't because of criticism - that's par for the course. It was because of the pettiness of those folks who seek to knock the messenger for the sake of it - going after the saw dust rather than the construction. And it should come as no surprise that on that very night that two [2] different and unrelated regular visitors; who could not have known my thought life; emailed to encourage me when I was at my lowest point. And for that I am eternally grateful. Because I carried on. I do have to say that it is sometimes easier to get on with atheists; pagans and all manner of folks than those who claim to follow Christ. Indeed; one of my friends has said this year that Christians sometimes can be quite obnoxious - and not because of a particular doctrinal stand. This year - 2010 - has been a struggle on many fronts; interesting and a learning curve ... I pray that 2011 is a blessing to all of you too!

THREE WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT EITHER!

Hello again folks! Further to my previous blog earlier this week on Monday 06-Dec-2010 entitled: 
WHEN TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT [THEORY]!; I was today given this cutting from 'The Sun' newspaper here in England from yesterday's edition. Whereas on Monday there were two [2]'wrong' climate predictions; this latest article revealed that there were actually three [3] false prophecies. And we all know what the biblical definition and result of untrue prognostication is. If they've got it wrong two or three times ... then why trust these scientific 'experts' anyway? As with that THEORY of evolution; this is something else that must needs checking out for one self. This is why it is dangerous when a preconceived agenda uses [so-called] 'science' to reinforce its own mantra and does not investigate facts and evidence in an unbiased; neutral manner. I always advise folks to check things out for themselves ... don't even take on board what I say without some analysis and Bereanology!

WHEN TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT [THEORY]!

Hello again folks! Most of you who are regular visitors to this blog know that I don't happen to believe in [human-caused] 'Global Warming'. They will know that I believe the current panic and extreme violation of 'neutral' scientific enquiry w.r.t. to this THEORY is more likely a vehicle for the imposition of a freedom-smashing; global; one world government.

Readers should know that markets were regularly held on a frozen Thames in London in days gone by before the Industrial Revolution. They should also know that vines were grown and wines produced up in Northumberland in the Middle Ages. We have had warm periods and cold snaps before. The output and intensity if the Sun is indeed cyclic roughly every.t eleven [11] years. And when one also considers that Orontius Finaeus Delphinus [1494-1555] mapped the entire ice-free coast coast of Antarctica in 1531; it is indeed a good thing to investigate past climatic changes that occurred well before those darned CO2 emissions [supposedly]. Indeed; if we didn't live in a global greenhouse called Earth; we would not exist at all!

The article in 'The Sun' newspaper here in England was highlighted to me today and I thought it of enough interest to share with you guys. Basically it is saying that two [2] of those [so-called] stone cold certain predictions of the [human-caused] global warming myth fraternity "were wrong". Those very prognostications were the basis for the movie: "The Day After Tomorrow".

The problem with publishing THEORIES as fact without sufficient evidence is that it is unscientific in and of itself when the 'research' is tilted to prove the THEORY in the first place. Of course there are extremes of climate and climates do change. My argument is that it may be accounting too much of the cause of us tiny humans and not enough attention on the cyclic rumblings of the universal clockwork ... as created by God Himself. Whether you agree with me or not - and debate is good - it is most important that you the reader always check these things out for your good selves.

The size of the article on page #29 of this national daily newspaper somewhat makes my point. After all the hype ... the actual 'facts' are printed well away from the front pages where the allegations were first made. Most of the population will remember the headlines but not the small grain of truth just after 'Dear Deirdre' and before the sports pages.

NOW THERE'S A RARITY!

Hello again folks! Whilst on a rare day off from work today; I spotted this display in a Wolverhampton city centre toy shop. The only shop that ever displays anything remotely to do with the reason for the season around here. You all know my opinion that December 25th is more to do with Saturnalia than the birth of the LORD Jesus Christ [He was - in this writers opinion - more likely born during September/October during the Feast of Tabernacles]. But despite that ... I found this most refreshing all the same; being as Christ is being scrubbed out of Christmas anyway these days as the atheistic agenda of this country apparently prefers the title 'Winterfest'! More fool they.

FYI: The shop is entitled: "The Entertainer" and it is located between the Mander and Wulfrun Centres in Wolverhampton. It's owner is a True Christian. The website address is ably advertised in the window!

PETITION: PLEASE HELP SAVE ASIA BIBI FROM ISLAMIC EXECUTION IN PAKISTAN

Hello again folks! Sally Richardson has just sent me this important and heart-rending story. There is a petition being raised with the intent of saving a lady named Asia Bibi from execution in Pakistan. The link below will take you to a site where you can, if you wish, sign a petition to save her. In the time that it takes to drink a cup of coffee or read this blog; you may be instrumental in saving a woman from execution by hanging on a trumped up Islamic blasphemy charge. You already know my thoughts on the [so-called] 'religion of peace'. So please take the time to sign the petition via this link below:


Please pray for this sentence to be revoked and for the immediate release of Asia Bibi. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

PRAYER FOR ISRAEL

Hello again folks! While we here in England are [at the behest of the media] pre-occupied with the white stuff and England's [not so unsurprising] failure to land the 2018 World Cup; it is imperative that we stay focussed and pray for the folks in northern Israel who are threatened by a huge wildfire as a result of doubtful origin and fanned by high winds and lack of rain. Over forty [40] folks have already been killed and many thousands forced to flee their homes. Even the 'Palestinians' are lending a hand. One cannot be sure as to whether this is the judgement of God or something that God will use to glorify His Name ... but one thing is for sure ... we need to be there for our Jewish/Hebrew/Israeli friends in and around Haifa:

WANNA LEARN HEBREW ALPHABET IN THREE MINUTES?

Hello again folks! Not so much Controversial Keith today folks as [hopefully] be-a-blessing Keith! Those of you who know your Bible will know that there is a great advantage and blessing involved if one tries to get their head around the Hebrew language or New Testament Greek. I've learnt so much in doing this even with just a handful of sentences or a word study down the years.So I was cheered and most surprised when a friend over on Facebook posted this three [3] minute long YouTube video that has the intention of teaching the man-on-the-street the basic Hebrew alphabet via a musical ditty. It's great. I hope you like it:


This writer firmly believes that the language in Heaven will be pure Hebrew. You will breathe it - not speak it though! There is therefore a firm advantage in getting a taster of it here on Terra Firma before the new One arrives!

YACOV PRASCH

Hello again folks! Sally Richardson [God bless her!] has forwarded this news to me. I really like this man; his teaching and his stance on certain [so-called] 'controversial' subject matter and I wish him all the very best. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jacob; his family; his friends and his supporters worldwide:

"Blessings in Jesus. Jacob Prasch returned from Jordan with a recurrent edema and increased blood pressure plus new [although not serious] changes in his EKG results. He has had a battery of blood chemistries and will be undergoing further medical tests and his medication dosages to control atrial fibrillation and hypertension have been increased. Prayer is requested. After consultation with his cardiologist changes will need to be made to Jacob’s schedule into the forthcoming year. Jacob will be fulfilling his speaking schedule through next month only. He will also still be speaking in a Calvary Chapel in New York where he will be visiting family for New Year and, while already in the USA, he will still address the Phoenix Conference at Calvary Chapel, Tempe, Arizona. No further engagements will take place in late December or January. On his cardiologist’s advice the USA itinerary for February, March, and April will be canceled as will all UK and other engagements in the North of England, Wales, or the Midlands [except Nottingham and Grantham]. As anticipated, there will be no visit to Australia or to New Zealand in 2011. There will also be no Bible study tour of Israel in 2011 and the scheduled September study tour of Greece will likely be rescheduled. The June itinerary for South Africa will be pushed back until late July as his cardiologist recommends a 6 month suspension of heavy travelling except for medical treatments or holiday. No decision has as yet been made concerning Singapore. Jacob will be confined to speaking only around London and the South of England mainly on Sundays and within close driving distance of his home base and the Moriel UK office not requiring long distance travel, long distance driving, frequent jet travel for itineraries and jet lag, etc. In addition to a medically supervised exercise program the plan is for Jacob to use the down time for writing his next book, spending more time with his wife, preparing for their daughter’s wedding, and producing new teaching material for recording, filming, and the internet. Moriel and Jacob apologetically regret these unfortunate cancellations. After the near stroke in Africa last year [which would have likely been fatal] there is medically no sensible alternative. Once again, prayer as always is much appreciated. In Christ."

MINE BE THE GLORY!

Hello again folks! Joanna Livermore has come up trumps again with this uplifting story from Chile ... a country that deserves a lot of credit in this writers opinion [via "Les @ Outback Patrol"]:

"Here are some interesting parts of the rescue .. When the miners came up one-at-a-time in that capsule; most were wearing special yellow T-shirts. These had been created by the Chilean branch of Campus Crusade for Christ. Emblazoned boldly across the front of the T-shirts were the words, in Spanish, "Thank you, Lord." The miners, in fact, had requested these words. The shirts were made and sent down to them while they waited for rescue.

But that's not all. A quotation on the back of the shirts which began "porque en su mano estan..." was actually Scripture. It was Psalm 95:4: "In His hands are the depths of the earth, the heights of the mountains are His also."

Campus Crusade had also provided the trapped miners; while still deep underground; with MP3 players with the audio version of the "Jesus" film. They also received the Bible in audio format. Now here's the Good News. Rev. Aldredo Cooper; the chaplain to the President of Chile; said of the rescued miners: "They're all wanting to testify to the Lord Jesus Christ. All 33 of them are saying that they found God in the mine. Five or six were already Christians and held services down in the mine. Many went down with no faith at all but they all say this: ‘We were not 33; we were 34 because Jesus Christ was with us down there.'"

One miner, Mario Sepulveda, told reporters, "We never lost faith. We knew we would be rescued. I have been with God and I've been with the devil. I seized the hand of God. I always knew God would get us out of there." One interesting point that I had missed was that a medic actually was sent down the rescue hole before the other miners could be brought up. Isn't that a picture of what God did? He sent His Son down to us before we could be rescued. We all, like the miners, were in darkness. But, as Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life" [John 8:12]. And, "I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness" [John 12:46]. I can only imagine the reaction, if those miners, trapped deep underground, came across Psalm 88 on their audio Bibles, when these words rang in their ears:

"I am counted with those who go down to the pit; I am like a man who has no strength, Adrift among the dead, Like the slain who lie in the grave, You have laid me in the lowest pit, In darkness, in the depths. You have put away my acquaintances far from me; I am shut up, and I cannot get out; My eye wastes away ... LORD, I have called daily upon You; I have stretched out my hands to You. Will You work wonders for the dead?

CORNELIUS SAVED HIS HOUSE!

Hello again folks! We all need a spiritual pick-me-up from time to time [me more than most!]; so I truly hope that this devotional from David Wilkerson may encourage and exhort you when you read it. With thanx [again!] to Joanna Livermore ... my Shropshire Sentinel!:

“There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band. A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always" [Acts 10:1-2]

The life of Cornelius proves that God seeks full-hearted devotion, obedience, and ceaseless prayer. Consider the ways in which this devoted man of God saved his house and the miracles his devotion wrought. Cornelius was so determined that he and his house come into God’s fullness that he actually neglected eating in order to seek God. Food was secondary to his deep spiritual hunger and longing for God. Days of fasting without a corresponding hunger and thirst for God avails nothing; in fact, it is better to eat than to fast in an effort to earn blessing from heaven. But hunger for God takes the edge off the desire for food for a man with a heart in pursuit of him.

This man Cornelius should put us all to shame. He had no teaching tapes; he didn't even have a teacher. He was not a Jewish proselyte but simply a man desperate for God. What he had learned had come the hard way - no seminars, no conventions, no how-to-get-it-from-God books. He did not even have the HolyGhost in him yet, urging him to pray and seek God's face. Yet he fasted and prayed always. His prayer life made him a giver of alms. God still had not answered his prayer for his own household, yet he gave generously to all in need. He was not so wrapped up in his own need that it took all his time, attention and money.

Praying men always get God's attention and the praying man hears God speaking. It's been that way since the beginning. You can save your house the same way Cornelius saved his. In a single day, with
one glorious miracle, his entire household was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. In one day his house was transformed from spiritual blindness to marvellous light and life. All because this man set out with great determination to save his house. God help us to get serious about praying for our lost family and friends" [end quote]

ST. MICHAEL 1 SATAN 0


Hello again folks! What a busy month October has been for KJS! Last week I took a much needed four [4] day break with the Sinclair clan down in Hayle; Cornwall; England last week. We had a good rest and did not a little sightseeing. We visited St. Michael's Mount on the Wednesday and whilst doing the tour; I spotted this interesting sculpture depicting the defeat of satan by St. Michael the archangel.

It's an interesting piece. It prodded me to explain to the family briefly the significance of Michael w.r.t. end times theology [eschatology]. One is reminded to re-read the book of Daniel and its scriptural sister; the Book of Revelation when one receives such prods!

It is always a good thing to be reminded and comforted in that when everyone else is losing his/her head; God has been ... is ... and always will be in control. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

STRANGE MAGIC

Hello again folks! Most regular visitors to this 'ol blog will know that I am a huge ELO fan. Back in 2007; SonyBMG re-released ELO's 1986 album 'Balance of Power' and on it was an alternate version of a track entitled: 'Heaven Only Knows':


This new version included references to the Lord's Prayer and on the above unofficial music video at 1:33 is a great church sign quoting said song title that brings a smile to my face! Not being a technical whiz kid; I don't know how to copy this particular frame as a picture so you need to watch the video clip to see it. I've lost count of the times that my earthly hobby has led to heavenly conversation! There are always doors that open for witnessing ... they often come along 'Out of the Blue' and every 'Time' they are a real 'Discovery'!

CURRENCY CROSSFIRE

Hello again folks! I know that this may invite a sigh of resigned frustration from one or two of you; but I found this piece of news reported on Thursday 07-Oct-2010 by the BBC of some interest:


The reason for my comment is this. There may well have to be a catalyst for the precursor to the dreaded '666' or 'mark of the beast' before it actually arrives and is put in effect. One of those catalysts MAY be a currency war that leads to a worldwide double-dip recession being initiated. And that financial furore would likely lead to global calls for a one world currency and by extension government. Of course there will be other factors for sure. One of those being that the current world population of approximately 6.5 billion is too high to monitor and control. We know that the government above the government [NWO/Illuminati et al] are keen on a reduced population around 0.5 billion so me thinx that there are still a few pivotal events to happen. In any case it is good to be watchful and not put our eggs all in one basket w.r.t. end times theology - in my personal opinion that is. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

THE MARVEL OF FRUIT AND FELLOWSHIP

 Hello again folks! Just a brief blog tonight! We have tonight have had an excellent evening; meal and marvellous fellowship in Wolverhampton [centre of the universe!] with our good friends Dave and Christine Hall of Living Waters Ministries Cyprus [http://livingwatersministiescyprus.blogspot.com/] and Hearing The Masters Voice [http://hearingthemastersvoice.blogspot.com/] ministries.

It is always a joy to meet up with these [not so] old friends who the Lord interjected into our lives in 2005 when LWCF was up and running and we hosted the ministry visit of Bruce Marchiano [http://kjs-heresywatch.blogspot.com/2010/09/recalling-when-jesus-came-to-pendeford.html]. It is always good to see; feel and witness the fruit of our past ventures and ministries. Praise God!

BEWARE THE IDES OF FUTURE DAYS

Hello again folks! Regular visitors to this particular blog may remember one of two statements with respect to the demographic time bomb that is ticking in the background. One of the statements that I have heard is that Germany will be majority muslim by 2040. So it was interesting today to read this article:


The above article written by one Paul Williams [PhD] for 'Europe News' quotes German Chancellor Angela Merkel as stating that Germany will become an Islamic state in the mid term. If you read this fascinating piece; you will see that our country is going to change beyond recognition in the next one or two generations. Back in the days of LWCF; during a few of our Bible studies on end times views; I stated that there may be a correlation between the beheading of folks who refuse the MoB a la the Book of Revelation; and the twin grim histories of the persecution of True believers by the roman catholic church [RCC] and islam. Indeed; there is a very strong link between the doctrines of the RCC and islam on the subject of Mary. I say this because many hostages; believers and muslims who chose to leave their faith have been beheaded in the name of allah. One only has to view Geert Wilders' film: "Fitna" with an open mind and remember those horrific reports from Iraq and Afghanistan as to those unfortunate folks' fate.

My point is that if islam becomes the dominant force in the demographic and political ethos of the EU Beast; based on the texts of the koran of the early and later years of its founder - when 'peace' was the buzzword for a minority muslim populace but not when they held the majority - we COULD see the texts of the Last Days fulfilled by islamic adherents and their 'one world religion' partners - specifically the RCC. History can and indeed does tend to repeat itself so one should keep an eye on the demographic pie chart of their country with a view to this. Rome has not changed and the teachings of the koran and hadith cannot change. Therefore it should be noted that Angela Merkel has [although this has been largely unreported in the news 'headlines'] made a very poignant and almost prophetic statement. And if Turkey ever became a member of the EU ... that process of islamic takeover will accelerate. Be watchful folks and be about whatever your general and specific calling is - while you have the 'freedom' to do so. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

RECALL: WHEN 'JESUS' CAME TO PENDEFORD

Hello again folks! Back in 2005 during the days of our little home fellowship in Wolverhampton; Living Waters Christian Fellowship [LWCF] was engaged in one or two evangelistic ventures. One of those events was to host an outreach event in a Wolverhampton city centre hotel. Through friends and contacts [especially Mysia!]; we were able to host our meeting with the lead speech being made by none other than Hollywood actor Bruce Marchiano.

Bruce is the actor who played Jesus in the Visual Bible's film entitled "Matthew" ... he also made an appearance in the follow-up release entitled "Acts". We had met Bruce a couple of times on his UK speaking tours thru' Mysia and she was instrumental in organizing the meeting. I remember introducing the meeting and playing percussion with John Elson [Guitar/Vocals] during the worship time. I remember the moving monologue and gospel message during which Bruce described some amazing events that took place during the filming of the movie. I remember meeting our good friends Dave and Chris Hall [now at Living Waters Ministries Cyprus] for the first time and other old and new faces.

Rebekah was just six [6] years old back then and you can see her with Bruce in out half-decorated front room in the photograph above. After the meeting; we all travelled back by mini-bus to our humble abode and a lovely buffet/spread was put on to those who would partake. Bruce was a charming guest and I enjoyed meeting him as did LWCF and our extended families. Real fruit emerged from that occasion ... people had divine appointments; they met the Lord and were encouraged greatly. I is good to sit here remembering that night almost five [5] years on. I recommend you get a hold of that 'Matthew' DVD and be edified as the events of the apostle Mattias are portrayed very succinctly on film.

RED SEA REALITY CHECK

Hello again folks! Not so long ago I penned a couple of blogs entitled: "There Be Giants 'ere" and "Noah's Ark Found?". The subject of which was the [so-called] 'discovery' of remnants or remains that back-up and totally support the veracity of the Bible and its accounts of 6,000 plus years of our history. I was therefore not at all surprised to receive these news reports regarding the scientific feasibility of the parting of the Red Sea a la Moses' escape from Pharoah's army:


Whether Moses' did it [he didn't] or the wind ... it all comes down to the big question ... Who sent the wind? I like these 'general interest' stories we read of from time to time. Some folks use them to insult and denigrate the faith but I use it to [hopefully] thought provoke folks and - when the opportunity arises - offer the Truth to them. If the door opens ... push gently ... you never know what is behind it!

VATICAN VISIT: A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

Hello again folks! Blog #600. If you needed a clue as to the true nature of the roman catholic church [RCC]; the pope and its many doctrinal errors; you need look no further than the fact that the much-hyped visit of the former head of the inquisition and ex-Hitler youth member is constantly being cited as a state visit. The Vatican is a state and the pope is head of that state. Technically; he is not visiting our shores as head of a religious organization; per Se. What I would like to say is this. The pope [and his predecessors] is an enemy [still] of this country on many levels since the Reformation. The RCC is; next to islam; is the greatest threat to biblical Christianity. Its dogmas which include the mass; the co-redemptrix status of Mary; the praying to the dead and veneration of souls long passed but [supposedly] in purgatory are all extra -biblical. The leader of said 'church' [which this writer labels a cult] is on record as having covered up for not a short time the crimes of paedophile priests and nuns.

POPE = NO HOPE
NO POPE = HOPE

So on many levels including conduct and doctrine; the visit of the pope to 'Mary's dowry' is not a good thing. I have encountered such a lot of general dissatisfaction with work colleagues; friends and family with not only the visit taking place but the British taxpayer having to fund it. But - unfortunately - we have to because it is a state visit you see. It is a visit to do with the temporal and not the spiritual. Jesus said that believers [and by extension their organizations] should not be 'friends with the world.' If ever there was a religious body that was in bed with mammon; it is the RCC. That is the huge clue as to its real intentions. I sympathize with those well-intentioned lay members of the RCC who know not what kind of trap they are ensnared in. I struggle to understand why True believers remain in this cult.

But as with a lot of occurrences in this life; this visit may may create opportunities to reach those deceived; lost souls in the RCC structure.This is why I posted my previous blog w.r.t. the meeting being held this weekend in Telford featuring ex-catholics who intend to provide much needed advice on how to reach currently practising RCC members with the Truth:

MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT: CHRISTIANS EVANGELIZING CATHOLICS

Hello again folks! In light of the visit by the pope; I recommended the above meeting to be held in Telford; England this coming Sunday 19-Sep-2010. There is an excellent opportunity here to get a hold of some valuable information; coaching and exhortation for reaching roman catholics with the True Gospel. They need saving as much as the rest of us! With thanks to Peter Westwood at DWBC for contacting me with details of this forthcoming meeting and regards to our friends over at Bethany Christian Fellowship; Walsall.

9/11 THOUGHTS

Hello again folks! Whatever one thinks about w.r.t the 9/11 islamic terror attacks on NYC; there is no doubt that is one of the great modern tragedies. Whether you think it was planned or allowed to happen or agree with countless other [conspiracies] theories; it was an awful day. I heard President Obama call today for greater religious tolerance. This is the man presiding over the de-Christianization of the USA; the first black muslim President of the United States of America. If only the same heads of state and other high profile leaders would condemn the intolerance of muslim countries against Christians and members of other faiths as well as those who decide to leave islam. If only. I have not a few American friends and family. Some new and some old. Today I wish them the God-given shalom peace that is the only peace that stills the soul and heals the spirit.

THE THIN EDGE OF THE WEDGE?

Hello again folks! When John Elson showed me this leaflet the other day; I thought on how this COULD be the precursor to the dreaded MoB ... trialled out initially as an option but maybe to be compulsory down the road. You should therefore not be surprised [if you really knew me that is!] that I am now quoting these inspired words from the Book of Revelation; chapter13:

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." [KJV; verses #16 thru' #18]

ROSH HA SHANNA


Hello again folks! First things first ... Be blessed on Rosh Ha Shannah! The Hebrew word Rosh means “head” or “Beginning” Ha means “the” and Shannah means “year”. It is only used once in the Tenach “Old Testament”. Ezekiel 40:1 says: "in the beginning of the year" in the Hebrew it says Rosh Ha Shannah. The more common Biblical name is: “Feast of Trumpets.” [Leviticus 23:23-25]. Rosh Hashannah is considered the Jewish New Year, but it comes on the seventh month on the first day. In the Jewish world it is considered the birthday of the world. If you count from the first day of Elul [the 6th month] until the 1st day of Tishri [7th month] which is Rosh Ha Shannah you will have counted 30 days. Known as the 30 days of preparation ending with Yom Teruah,Yom in Hebrew is “day” and Teruah means “Trumpets”. Hence it is the day of sounding the trumpets, or known today as Rosh Ha Shannah. Now ... Rosh Hashannah is the spiritual New Year, not the regular new year, for it would come on the first day of Nisan, the first month on the Jewish calendar. Much like the 6 days of creation, the 7th day is the Sabbath. The same is true with the first 6 months and the 7th month being a Sabbath, and the 1st day of the 7th month is Rosh Ha Shannah, the spiritual New Year. Recognized in Israel and the Jewish world as the New Year. Rosh Ha Shannah is the beginning of the ten days called High Holy Days or “Days of Awe”/. They are also called the Days of Repentance, Days of Admitting, Days of Returning. These ten days end with the Day of Atonement, “Yom Kippur” [with thanx to Mr. Jerry Golden for this succinct explanation!]

On another subject; recently I've joined Facebook - primarily to reconnect with my family - but there have been other benefits. One of those benefits have been the number of followers of my ELOBF blog who are also believers in the LORD Jesus Christ. I have other friends who support UKIP and are believers too. As I've said before; I feel it's a kind of confirmation of what I'm up to. God is good ... all the time God is good.

BAD CRESCENT MOON RISING

Hello again folks! Quite a few folks [at work especially] have asked me what my thoughts are on the Florida pastor who plans to burn copies of the koran on the 9th anniversary of 9/11:


And you may be surprised by my response! On one hand; islam is well known for its persecution of True Christians [especially those who leave islam by their own free will] and many; many Bibles have been burned. Not a few Christians and Christian missionaries have been burned out of their homes in muslim countries too. Indeed; it is well documented that you can't even build a church in certain islamic countries. And we all remember the mass celebrations in the Middle East when 9/11 took place. But - on the other hand - is it a good and God honouring thing to burn korans to make a point? Doubtless; islam is one of the many enemies of True Christianity but I'm reminded of this scripture:

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."
[Matthew 5:44]

It is more God-honouring in this writers opinion to take the above Godly advice in this particular circumstance. Burning a bunch of books from the opposition strikes of immaturity and carnality. WWJD? This 'story' gives a platform to the promoters of islam. I hear that a Taliban spokesman said: " This proves that the West is against islam.". The truth is that islam is against the West [a.k.a. the 'great satan']. But this is fantastic propaganda for the likes of the MCB and CAIR and their worldwide affiliates. The ire and soulish churchianity disguised as patriotic nationalism of one desperate pastor is ammunition for a thousand imams. Informed folks know the threat of islam but there is a time and a place to make a stand. I do not concur with Hillary Clinton or the pope in their condemnation either. They regularly fail to condemn the persecution and outright abuse of True Christians in the islamic world and don't have a leg to stand on.

FUTURE HISTORY

Hello again folks! As I drove to and from work today; I considered some words that I heard recently: "Only the victors write history". I don't think that you'll ever get a hold of any unbiased historical account - especially about me! Only God knows - literally - all our true [personal] histories.

But what a wonderful thing it is that Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Victor. The Creator Redeemer gave us our True origins in the Book of Genesis and has already given us the blessed assurance of future history in the Book of Revelation too. Because He has defeated death itself; the Captain of our [True] Salvation; the First and Last has inspired Moses and John to give us the First and Final account of time immemorial. If I were a betting man; I'd go with a scenario where the result is fixed; certain and to be trusted! Now that really is grace overflowing!

Hello again folks! Sometimes - just sometimes - a picture or two tells it all! I love these two signs. In this life there is a time to be serious and a time to laugh a la the Book of Ecclesiastes chapter three [3].

13 UP!

Hello again folks! Just a short blog to announce that today - Monday 06-Sep-2010 - is our 13th Wedding Anniversary. Yes folks - it's thirteen [13] years since our wedding at Temple Baptist Church; Wolverhampton on that amazing Saturday in 1997 when just as Keith Sinclair and Julie Davies embarked on married life; the late Princess Diana was being buried! Our thanks to God for putting us together; giving us two [2] lovely children: Rebekah Marie and James Adam ... plus a mother-in-law or two and for the gift of partnership with each other and all the folks all over the world who we have fellowshipped with and continue to be associated with!

THE TRAGEDY OF MIKE EDWARDS

Hello again folks! Over on my ELO BEATLES FOREVER blog; I have been reporting on the tragic and sudden unfortunate death of ex-ELO cellist Mike Edwards:


My good friend Pete Reynolds; who lives locally in Brixham; informs me that Mike was delivering water bottles around south Devon and was due to play a concert in Totnes this weekend coming. Apparently; a hay bale fell of off a tractor trailer in a neighbouring field and rolled down a steep slope right onto his van roof. Call it unlucky or call it his time; it is a sober reminder of the brevity of life and how we need to keep a short account with our Maker and Saviour and how unsaved folks gamble with eternity. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

I AM ISRAEL [2]

Hello again folks! This is: "I Am Israel - Yerushalayim Version" with the accompanying vocals of the late, great Ofra Haza:


Maybe you will remember that she sang the song: "When You Believe" in the 'Prince of Egypt' film soundtrack? In any case; here is the transcription of this presentation:

"I am Israel. I was born millennia before I was renamed Palestine by the conquering Romans, before Muhammad took his first breath, and before the U.N. decided to split me in half and turn my Eastern lands into Jordan. My people, the Jews, maintained communities here for three thousand years - that is until the Arabs decided to massacre those Jews without reason in 1920 and 1929. Hundreds of civilians were murdered, most of them women and children. Meanwhile, their brother Arab states massacred and exiled 1 million Arabic Jews from their lands - erasing their history.

I am Israel. I have been attacked four times by Arab armies since I declared independence in 1948. I told the Arabs who lived on my land that they were welcome to stay, but they were told by the neighboring states to leave temporarily while the Jews were "taken care of". I have been offering a message of peace since the day I was born, but my enemies answered only in bullets. I am a survivor - I won every war. Realizing they could not defeat me with arms, my enemies have turned to lies.

I am Israel. Time and time again my name is smeared. Though each of these lies is eventually disproven, my enemies continue to claim I am committing genocide. Is giving educational opportunities to Palestinian Arabs "genocide"? 20% of the students in Haifa University are Arabs. If I am an aggressor who exiled all the Arabs in 1948, why are 20% of my citizens Arabs with full rights? Where did they magically appear from? Why did I give up the entire Sinai and the Gaza strip, uprooting my own people from their homes, only for the hope of peace?

I am Israel. In combat, I risk the lives of my teenage sons and daughters in order to minimize civilian Palestinian casualties. I make every attempt to target only fighters, often putting my own soldiers in harms way. In wartime, I drop leaflets on areas to be attacked, warning civilians to evacuate. Has any other army in the history of mankind done this for its enemy? I waited 8 years to stop Hamas from its daily rocket attacks on my kindergartens and my hospitals. I am patient, but my patience is not infinite.

I am Israel. I have created Intel and cell phone technology, medicine for devastating diseases, and I lead the world in scientific publications per capita. I send humanitarian missions to developing countries, including Muslim countries. I have absorbed hundreds of Muslim refugees who faced genocide in Darfur - refugees no Muslim state would take.

I am Israel. I am one of the smallest countries in the world, and probably the most stubborn. I refuse to give up hope for peace. My friends support me not because of any lobby, but because they see the truth - I am the heart of the Middle East, and the hope for its future. My prophet said, "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation," and I will try, and try, and TRY until those words are true.

Because I am Israel."

THE JOEL 3:2 SANCTION [2]

Hello again folks! Bill Koenig wrote a very interesting book entitled: "Eye to Eye" back in 2004 that was subtitled: "Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel". The product description w.r.t. this book @ amazon.com reads as such:

"What do these major record-setting events have in common? [a] the ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history; [b] the twelve costliest hurricanes in U.S. history; [c] three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history and [d] the two largest terrorism events in U.S. history?

Answer: All of these major catastrophes and many others occurred or began on the very same day or within 24-hours of U.S. presidents Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of "peace and security," sponsoring major "land for peace" meetings, making major public statements pertaining to Israel’s covenant land and /or calling for a Palestinian state. Are each one of these major record-setting events just a coincidence or awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved in the affairs of Israel? In this book, Bill Koenig provides undeniable facts and conclusive evidence showing that indeed the leaders of the United States and the world are on a collision course with God over Israel’s covenant land. "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem" [Zechariah 12:9]"
[end quote]

The reason that I have mentioned this book is this. On the day when the pressure is well and truly being applied more on the Israeli side in the latest round of [so-called] 'peace' talks in Washington between Israel and the 'palestinians'; Hurricane Earl is motoring up the eastern coast of the USA prompting some evacuations; just as the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu is making statements like this: "True peace, a lasting peace, will be achieved only with mutual and painful concessions from both sides.":


Bible students should be aware of Zechariah 12:9 [above] and - of course - Joel 3:2: "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land."

We are not also witnessing another example of the consequences that Bill Koenig has ably documented when nation[s] mess with Israel. We are also seeing the warnings of scripture being played out in our day. It will be indeed interesting and noteworthy to see what deals are done in this latest round of 'negotiations' and what events [natural or otherwise] transpire in or against the USA - if they are complicit in the division of the Jewish State of Israel. Time is getting that little bit shorter folks.

THE ROMANS 1:22 FACTOR

Hello again folks!  I see that professor Stephen Hawking has now stated that 'Creation' was in fact God-less. In other words; per evolutionary THEORY; nothing was made by no-one into something on some day:


The headline reads: CREATION WAS GODLESS but the message from God to the world is: STEPHEN HAWKING IS GODLESS! Me thinx that he'd better do something about it and quickly. TODAY is the day of salvation and there is no other Name by which we can be saved other than the Name of the LORD Jesus Christ! If ever the deep truth of Romans 1:22 needed further illumination; then the above article provides it ... sadly.

THE ONLY TRUE PEACE IS SHALOM PEACE

Hello again folks! Of course it was wrong of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef to say what he said the other day regarding Mahmoud Abbas and the 'palestinian' people thereupon. We know that God is against those who hate Israel [the apple of His eye] but we also know that in His long suffering grace; He is not willing that any [Jews or muslims or others] should perish:


The above statement from Israel Today article should be read in addition to the international furore against the Rabbi's comments and puts the whole debate in a more balanced state:

"The level of hypocrisy in the Palestinian reactions was astounding, considering the documented calls to murder not only Israelis but all Jews that are made in Palestinian mosques every Friday. Often those murderous Islamic sermons are broadcast on official Palestinian Authority television. On top of that, the Palestinian education system continues to demonize Israel and the Jews, and PA-sponsored summer camps, public squares and soccer teams are still being named after the terrorists who have managed to murder the most Israeli Jews. Case in point - at least two Palestinian summer camps this year were named after Dalal Mughrabi, the female terrorist who led the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre in which 37 Israelis were killed, the single largest terrorist attack in Israel's history. Abbas also hosted a Ramallah street party that honored Mughrabi, and earlier renamed one of the de facto Palestinian capital's streets after the murderess. The difference between Rabbi Yosef's remarks and the incitement practiced by the Palestinian Authority is that Yosef was asking God to deal with Israel's enemies, while the Palestinians are being encouraged to themselves take up arms and kill Jews."
[end quote]

In light of the murder of four [4] Israelis in the [so-called] 'West Bank' this week; this tension is likely to increase. The only real shalom peace is going to come about via Messiah Yeshua. The State of Israel is basically secular and atheistic at present. It represents the breathless bones and sinews of those 'Dry Bones' as prophesied by Ezekiel. We see the falling short of the thoughts and intents of man's heart; soul and his religion when we look at the scenario between the Israelis and the [so-called] palestinians. It is this tension and the repeated pressure by certain interested groups that will lead to the dreaded covenant of Sheol [death]. Of course; the statements by the Rabbi and those of the imams are wrong and immoral. But without Yeshua as the lynch pin of both their mutual reconciliation and salvation; both the Jews and 'palestinians' will ever be at odds. In the days ahead; we should not be surprised by any increase in the rhetoric between the sides leading up the [public] arrival of the AC - whoever he may turn out to be.

SO REFRESHING: TIMES SQUARE CHURCH; NYC

Hello again folks! A short blog today to let you know that the Sinclair's have been listening to some solid preaching on the internet this morning/afternoon. We've been listening to Pastor Carter Conlon at Times Square Church in NYC in two [2] audio and video sermons at:


The messages are very much in the same vein as those of David Wilkerson - the Senior Pastor at said church. And it's interesting and noteworthy that such powerful preaching is broadcast from a city that also gives over its streets and boulevards to muslims to pray in from overflowing mosques. This really is the front line of the battle for the hearts and minds of  the West.

Listening to these wise words reminds me of how REAL preaching should be delivered. I heard someone say once that any message should be over in fifteen [15] minutes. Like a surgeon with his sharp scalpel preforms his task efficiently and proficiently. This is because the typical human being has only a limited time span of concentration. O for a church in this vicinity that preaches AND LIVES the True Gospel and is not bogged down with secondary doctrines as sacred cows such as cessationism; the Pre-Trib rapture theorem or 'Once saved; Always saved' and the rest. I feel like I've had a spiritual shot in the arm today. Praise the LORD!

THE PROBLEM OF A MOSQUE @ GROUND ZERO [2]

Hello again folks! My good friend PJN over in not-so-sunny Shropshire sent me this interesting article the other day. It is interesting that in light of the growing furore w.r.t. the proposal to build a mosque at 'Ground Zero' in New York; the issue of the growing islamic advance into the USA [that 'great satan' as some imams like to call it] and the West in general is starting to pique the interest of the general public:


"What a crazy world we live in! This is NYC on Madison Avenue. A Christian Nation cannot put up a Christmas scene of the baby Jesus in a public place, but the Muslims can stop normal traffic every Friday afternoon by worshiping in the streets ... Something is happening in America that is reminiscent of what is happening in Europe. This is Political Correctness gone crazy ... This is an accurate picture of every Friday afternoon in several locations throughout NYC where there are mosques with a large number of Muslims [who] cannot fit into [their] mosque. They fill the surrounding streets, facing east for a couple of hours between about 2:00PM & 4:00PM. Besides this one at 42nd St. & Madison Avenue, there is another, even larger group, at 94th St. & 3rd Avenue etc.Also, I presume, you are aware of the dispute over building another "high rise" Mosque a few blocks from "Ground Zero". With regard to that one, the "Imam" refuses to disclose where the $110 million dollars to build it is coming from and there is a lawsuit filed to force disclosure of that information - Just some facts FYI - But then, you have your own troubles with the "immigration" problem and the new AZ law - November can't come soon enough! This is in New York City on Madison Avenue, not in France or the Middle East or Yemen or Kenya. Is there a message here? Yes, there is. And they are claiming America for allah. If we don't wake up soon, we are going to "politically correct" ourselves right out of our own country!"
[end quote]

I'd like to quote these famous and wise words of Edmund Burke in closing today:

"For evil to flourish, all that is needed is for good people to do nothing."

BEREANOLOGY

Hello again folks! I've always hoped that besides being an outlet of the thoughts and musings of KJS; this 'ol blog would encourage debate and at the very least ignite folks into checking out the periphery and checking out all things for themselves a la the Bereans of Acts 17:11. Back in January 2010; I wrote this blog entitled: "COMMENTOLOGY":

http://kjs-heresywatch.blogspot.com/2010/01/commentology.html

I write usually from the heart with a zeal for encouragement; real concern for all folks and with the somewhat quirky humour of KJS. A friend of mine once said: "Keith; you are like Marmite! People either love you or hate you!". And they were right. And Jesus would prefer His folks being hot and/or cold - if we take Revelation 3:16 as it is written. He can deal with those souls ... it's the lukewarm; grey people who don't know [or care] what they believe or why they believe it that I'm sure frustrates His long suffering desire for their True Salvation.

I am no prophet but I do think it meet to peer into current events from time to time to see what's 'appening - so to speak! I get a hold of certain news threads and comment on them in light of certain scriptures. I say this because sometimes it feels to this writer that there are folks out there who like to shoot the messenger if they don't like the message. My retort is to encourage folks to check out the periphery and become True Bereans.

"This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
[II Peter 3:1-4]

And this is why I always sign off like this: Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

SKYPE CONSIDERATIONS

Hello again folks! I heard this morning on the TV Breakfast News that apparently the average person is now spending half his or her [or both at the same time!] waking time either watching the TV or interfacing with other folks by various means.The figure quoting was 9.5 hours of media usage in 6.5 hours - you work it out! - it seems a lot of folks can do more than one thing at the same time! And those various means include the Internet; Twitter; fancy mobile 'phones and even the odd blog!

I've often wondered on what will be the mechanics of the infamous 'Mark of the Beast' as prophesied in chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation or how the whole world might view the slaying of the Two [2] Witnesses. Some folks have quite rightly looked the Verichip 'Digital Angel' and the detail of how antichrist will keep his beady eyes on us all [especially if the Pre-Trib rapture THEORY proves to be somewhat left of centre - so to speak]. But when I look at one new and developing technology that even my mother-in-law [the great Doris] could use sparingly; I think the necessary technology and gadgetry utilized by Skype is making those dreaded forthcoming and even darker days seem that little bit closer.

KNOWN BY THEIR FRUITS [1]

Hello again folks! I just heard on the news that there is mounting widespread criticism of the response of the oil-rich arab bloc to the international appeals for aid by various agencies for their flood-hit muslim brothers in Pakistan. By the way; the #1 contributor to the aid is the country that certain muslim 'leaders' often call: "... the great satan". I refer; of course; to the good 'ol [despite its faults] United States of America. When you think of the Petro-Dollar rich Gulf oil nations [who are all muslim by the way] and the untold wealth that they possess; it is beyond belief [or is it?] that they fall far behind when any international relief effort is under way. Yet they do invest multi-millions of dollars in certain English 'Premier League' football teams!

Islam is primarily a religion of conquest - not mission. And more muslims have killed each other than any of us 'infidels' ever have. The Sunni versus Shi'ite rivalry and the Iraq-Iran war evidence this. Indonesia; a majority muslim country; received more assistance from the West than the entire muslim ummah after the 2005 Tsunami disaster. So what does this say about that 'religion of peace and tolerance'? If they cannot display mercy and compassion to their fellow muslims; what should us non-muslims [or 'infidels'] expect in the future? Answer: You already know them by their fruits.
