      Zionism - The Occult Guild Of Antichrist
      A Christian Perspective
      By Alton Raines
      http://rense.com/general67/znsm.htm


      Right now, across the globe, born-again, fundamentalist, bible-
      believing, evangelical Christians are being led down a path to
      destruction through a Satanically calculated deception, the roots of
      which were cultivated in ages past set forth for the final conflict
      between good and evil on earth. They haven't a clue they are
      deceived, in fact, they have filled themselves with the cancer of
      religious pride so as to become perfectly deluded, thinking
      themselves the correctors of the foolish and those in error. While
      wrapped up in useless controversies over denominational dogma or
      mesmerized by modern Christian media with 'end-times' speculations
      such as 'The Rapture,' a far more sinister undertow of self-imposed
      blindness drags the Church closer and closer toward the 'great
      falling away', or 'final apostasy.'

      Part and parcel to the Zionist objective by more than one faction of
      the religio-political movement is the establishment of a third
      temple in Israel,[1] to be erected on the site of the former temple
      (destroyed in 70 A.D) on the mount of David, presently occupied by
      the Islamic 'Dome of the Rock,' which enshrines what they believe to
      be the stone upon which Abraham was to offer up his only son Isaac
      as a sacrifice.

      This grand desire for a new temple in Jerusalem is shared, as well
      as financially and politically bolstered, by tens of thousands of
      evangelical churches (there are actually more non-Jewish Zionists in
      the world than Jewish due to the overwhelming number of pro-Israel
      Christians). Repeated attempts by various parties to lay a
      foundation stone and claim to the holy site since the 60s has always
      met with extreme opposition by both Islamic and secular Israeli
      factions, sometimes resulting in riots and bloodshed. The
      elusive 'third temple' appears to be just beyond the grasp, held at
      bay by remarkable forces, both seen and unseen. The question is, who
      is more frustrated... those who presume themselves to be laborers
      for Christ, or those who are of the occult guild of Antichrist?
      What is the purpose of this third temple & who will it serve?

      "We should not forget... that the supreme purpose of the ingathering
      of (Jewish) exiles and the establishment of our state is the
      building of the temple. The temple is at the very top of the
      pyramid" [1]

      There is only one purpose or need for a third temple, and that is
      for Jews to return to the full Mosaic Law and temple services which
      involve animal sacrifice for sins. Equally, there is absolutely no
      use or need for a temple if there is no Ark of Covenant, upon which
      the blood must be offered, which has been curiously missing since
      before the time of Christ. It seems highly unlikely that the present
      guild of priests in training for temple services[2] would even exist
      if there were not reliable knowledge of the whereabouts of this
      centerpiece of the temple and its primary function. All other
      necessary artifacts for temple service, including the Shemen
      Afarshimon [3] - an original vial of anointing oil for the high
      priest - and the reappearance of the red heifer (the ash of which is
      vital to temple services) are in the possession of these Jewish
      priests today. The anticipated 'High Priest' is ultimately the
      awaited Messiah himself. For the Jews, his first appearing. To
      Christians, his Second Coming from heaven. But in both cases
      prophecy says first will come the deceiver, The Son of Perdition --
      Antichrist.

      The prophet Daniel foretold the time of the coming of Messiah,
      noting that he would appear after seventy weeks of years (as Hebrews
      counted time) from the signing of a decree to free the Jews from
      captivity in Babylon to return and rebuild Jerusalem and the temple.
      This took place in 444 B.C. [4] when Artaxerxes Longimanus, king of
      Persia (464-423 BC), signed such a decree and allowed the Jews to
      return. Exactly as according to the prophecy of Daniel, Y'shua of
      Nazareth (Jesus) presented himself before the people and to the
      temple as Messiah and King -- only to be rejected by the ruling
      religious authorities who had conspired against Him from the time of
      his equally foretold birth.

      During the ministry of Christ, he declared publicly, "Tear down this
      temple and in three days I shall raise it up again," confounding the
      religious leaders and rabble alike. He was, of course, speaking not
      of the temple of stone and mortar, but of his own body as the final
      temple and final sacrifice for sins, as well as his triumphant
      resurrection from the dead (three days and nights in the tomb) --
      forever putting away the need or use of the temple sacrifices of
      animals, which were merely a representative propitiation until the
      Messiah should come, offering his own life and blood as the price
      paid in full, acceptable unto God. The redemption of mankind from
      spiritual oblivion was not forged in the earthly elements of temples
      and rituals, but in the very person of Christ, made manifest in the
      flesh, bringing eternal reconciliation, putting away forever those
      material elements which merely foreshadowed His fulfillment and
      accomplishment in the incarnation.

      He presented himself to the temple on the same day the Pascal
      (Passover) lamb of sacrifice would be brought in and examined by the
      chief priests as to whether it was worthy and fitting for the task
      (being without spot or blemish). Not realizing it, they examined the
      true and final lamb of offering in the court of the temple when
      facing Jesus, "the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the
      world," and despite finding no error in him, and being utterly
      silenced by his wisdom and authority, unable to truly judge him
      wanting, they nonetheless rejected him and proceeded to enact the
      final skullduggery which would result in his midnight arrest through
      the betrayal of his disciple Judas, the conviction in a kangaroo
      court of the Sanhedrin, and subsequent crucifixion at the hands of
      the Roman judiciary, which occupied Judea at that time.

      Even Pontias Pilate, the appointed governor of the region, found no
      fault in Jesus and sent him back to the Jewish religious
      authorities, under King Herod (a Jewish puppet of the occupying
      Roman regency). In the end, the chief priests who conspired against
      Jesus resorted to the lowest level of psychological and political
      terrorism in order to force Pilate's hand, which he quickly washed
      publicly in a basin to proclaim that he had no blood on his hands in
      the matter of the death of Jesus of Nazareth. Pilate even went so
      far as to make use of a special appeasement to the people, as it was
      the time of the feast of Passover, and offered the people their
      choice between a convicted zealot insurrectionist, Barabbas, or
      Jesus, to be set free. The crowd, urged on by the ruling class of
      Jews, cried out for the crucifixion of Jesus, and the release of
      Barabbas. (Oddly enough, the name Barabbas means "son of the father"
      in Hebrew, and many have speculated that the Romans did not
      comprehend that the people were actually calling for Jesus, who
      called himself the 'Son of the Father' in his ministry).

      Nonetheless, it was Jesus who was sentenced to the cross and
      Barabbas freed. And as was prophesied, and as He often told his
      followers, he would rise from the dead on the third day. Christ
      Himself was the true and final 'temple.' Even as His apostle to the
      gentiles, Paul, later declared to the Athenians, "God, that made the
      world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and
      earth, does not dwell in temples made by human hands" (Acts 17:24).
      It is little understood that when Christ died, the great veil in the
      temple which enshrouded the Holy of Holies from sight was rent from
      top to bottom by an unseen force, thus revealing to the people both
      that access to God's grace was thrown wide open to all, and that the
      temple service which had been carried out by the Jews was a sham --
      for the Ark was not present for the sacrifices and had not been for
      some time. This was another way of revealing that Christ was the
      substance/fulfillment of everything put forth symbolically according
      to the Law, including the Ark, which was itself a picture or type of
      Christ.

      It is only upon the true altar of God, through Christ, by his own
      blood, that God is satisfied with the final propitiation for sins.
      As scripture states, "...there remains no further sacrifice for
      sins."(Hebrews 10:26). Thus, the Ark of Covenant has no purpose and
      cannot serve God or any human being in any way, shape or form.
      However, it CAN be used to deceive -- and that is exactly what is
      planned.

      Everything Old Is New Again

      Powerful forces again seek to re-establish what should never be
      again, what was destroyed and left desolate (without the Spirit);
      they seek to re-enact services and sacrifices which, if offered, are
      utterly and entirely Satanic in the eyes of God and a grievous
      blasphemy...

      "Of how much sorer punishment, do you suppose, shall he be thought
      worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted
      the blood of the (new) covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an
      unholy thing, and has done despite unto the Spirit of grace?"
      (Hebrews 10:29) and "But Christ being made an high priest of good
      things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle (temple),
      not made with human hands, that is to say, not of this building;
      Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he
      entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal
      redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the
      ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the
      purification of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ,
      who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
      purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"
      (Hebrews 9:11)

      Knowing this will result in the greatest of blasphemies,
      nonetheless, millions of Christians seek and look forward to the a
      third temple and support various Jewish organizations which also
      desire a return to sacrifices! There appears to be a form of
      Christian madness in these times whereby many believe that the hand
      of God can be forced, the events of prophecy summoned, bringing
      about the end -- not realizing that by even attempting such, they
      place themselves in the role of the agency of evil. The patience
      Christ and the Apostles exhorted for all believers regarding the
      Second Coming has been replaced by a zealous, unbiblical anxiety for
      what they perceive as the Lord's delay. There is almost an air of
      contempt that they are being made to suffer in this sinful world so
      long, as though this were something unusual or peculiar. Jesus even
      spoke to this, and gave stern warnings for such foolishness. But
      today it falls on deaf ears, tickled and dulled by candy-coated
      Gospel pablum, as well as deceptive teachings such as the 'pre-
      tribulation rapture' of the church, which has lulled millions
      worldwide into a sense of false security and distorted prophetic
      understanding. This has been a multi-billion dollar enterprise of
      brainwashing through contemporary Christian media. Quite a number of
      those chiefly involved in the 'Pre-Trib' message have ties to occult
      figures who are clearly working for the dark side.

      To return to a temple made with human hands, to the Ark, to the
      services, to the sacrifices of animal blood is to commit a
      phenomenal blasphemy. It is to count as unworthy, as unclean, as
      insufficient and useless the blood sacrifice of The Christ, as Paul
      declares plainly in Hebrews 9 & 10. This is the desire, goal and
      plan of Antichrist, to fulfill by Satan that original vanity-driven
      claim for which he was cast out of the abode of God: namely, that he
      would seize the throne of God.

      The Ark of Covenant is a throne [5], its lid of gold is called the
      Mercy Seat whereupon God, appearing in the form of the Shekinah
      Glory, appeared in the days of the tabernacle with Moses -- a copy
      or replica of the heavenly Ark or throne of Christ, who in his
      incarnation, when he ascended to the true Heavenly tabernacle,
      offered his blood once for all, then sat down at the right hand of
      Majesty on High. It was over this heavenly Ark that Satan at one
      time was called 'the anointed cherub who covers'; he is quite
      familiar with the substitutionary role which, under the sway of his
      intense vanity, drove him to seek worship of himself. But that role
      was stripped from him.

      Untold millennia ago, even before this present world was formed, the
      great archangel of God to whom was given the highest of all
      positions and responsibilities was cast "as profane" from the
      heights of the dwelling of God for his grievous sins and subsequent
      violence. He seduced nations of angelic beings to worship him,
      profaned his sanctuaries and was filled with wrath upon his
      banishment. So skillful was he in his masquerade of the pre-
      incarnate Christ (the image of the invisible Godhead), being the
      most glorious of all created beings, that he brought confusion among
      the angelics, leading many astray to follow him. These were banished
      to the black darkness of the lower heavens, 'wandering stars' for
      whom the final eternal gloom of a final hell is reserved in the day
      of judgment of the ungodly. These beings are referred to by Paul
      as "principalities and powers in celestial realms above" who, in
      league with Satan, are manipulating events to culminate in this
      final blasphemy involving a 'temple of God.' There, through the
      agency of the final Antichrist, "... that man of sin (shall) be
      revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposes and exalts himself above
      all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits
      in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God." (2
      Thessalonians 2:4). The 'seat' he will take must be the Ark of
      Covenant, as it is the only legitimate 'throne' for such a temple.
      Consider then the implications of that seat being occupied by the
      prefect representative of Satan, in the person of the 'Son of
      Perdition.' That throne has been taken away, perhaps hidden, until a
      transition takes place. For Christ will at some point leave the true
      throne of heaven and descend to the earth to remove the unholy
      abomination, "whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his
      mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming" (2
      Thess. 2:8).

      Thus, it is the desire and will of the architects of eternal evil,
      the grand Illuminati, to construct this third temple, not for God,
      but for Satan -- in the mad belief that if that throne can be
      occupied by the absolute unholy, Satan can fulfill his original,
      willful, declarative rebellion:

      "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I
      will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon
      the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will
      ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High
      (God)." (Isaiah 14:13)

      A Sucker Punch

      Somehow, Christendom has fallen under a spell of delusion, believing
      that aiding the Jews in this endeavor for a third temple is a good
      thing. Yet, the Jews presently have no God, as it is declared, "Who
      is the liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is
      antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Whosoever denies the
      Son, the same does not have the Father either: he that acknowledges
      the Son has the Father also" (1 John 2:22). Neither do they have a
      covenant, for the first was abolished and the New Covenant, with new
      blood, with "better promises" was established in Christ Jesus, who
      is Lord, Messiah and King.

      The Zionist Occult empire operates by the same condemned racist lie
      perpetrated by their forefathers, the lawyers and the self-absorbed
      ruling Jewish class that dominated all of Israel; those sociopathic,
      self-serving legalists who perpetually devised schemes above, around
      and even within the Law, in order to line their own pockets,
      subjugate the masses under religious tyranny and fear, and as Christ
      said, 'do the will of (their) father, the devil.'

      The lie of the 'chosen people' was first challenged by John the
      Baptist to the faces of the religious rulers, who often prided
      themselves as the children of Abraham for a boast; John upbraided
      them for their self-righteousness and borrowed piety on the back of
      Abraham and all the faithful, saying God could raise children of
      Abraham from mere stones -- for Abraham according the flesh meant
      NOTHING -- and later by Jesus as well, in several altercations face
      to face with chief priests who invoked the name of Abraham to
      justify their deceit, faithlessness and evil deeds. Jesus told
      them, "Before Abraham was, I AM."

      There was, and remains, a 'chosen people,' but they are not by race,
      or culture or even religion. Rather, as John wrote, "Which were
      born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of
      man, but of God" (John 1:13) and this, the Israel of God, is defined
      clearly this way: "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision
      (Jewishness) availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new
      creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on
      them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God." (Galatians 6:15-16).
      This transition of who and what true Israel is was also declared by
      Christ when he told the parable of the Vineyard owner in Matthew 21,
      afterwards saying plainly "Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of
      God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth
      the fruits thereof." (Matthew 21:43).

      Zion in the world walks entirely contrary to this truth; it defies
      it, opposes it and is the enemy of it, forever. As shown in the
      arrogance of Menachem Begin (Israeli Prime Minister, 1977-1983) who
      stated boldly, "Our race (speaking of the Jews) is the Master Race.
      We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the
      inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our
      race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other
      races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over
      the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader
      with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as
      our slaves." - Menachem Begin." Now imagine if any non-Jew of
      reputable influence ever said such a thing in the 20th century!
      Imagine the outcry and ramifications! Does this sound like
      the 'Israel of God' of which Paul spoke? Begin merely uttered what
      millions of zealous Jewish Zionists believe in their hearts, and
      example in their Apartheid rule of the land of Palestine today.
      The "Zion" which Christians should be embracing is not of this
      world:

      "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living
      God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of
      angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which
      are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the
      spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the
      new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better
      things than that of Abel." (Hebrews 12:22).

      We are told time and time again in the scriptures, we are sojourners
      in this world; that we should not seek the things of the world, for
      it is quickly passing away; that the great exemplars of faith as
      recorded in Hebrews 11 sought a "better country" -- not meaning any
      material land on earth, but the Kingdom of God itself, and "a new
      heaven and a new earth," forthcoming, "wherein righteousness
      dwells."

      By this deceptive clinging to a claim of Abrahamic inheritance and
      descent, this one, tiny, corrupt tribe among the 12 tribes of
      Israel, which in times past usurped the temple sanctuary and
      controlled a phony priesthood, serving in a temple that had become
      nothing more than a tomb, unrecognized by God as anything more than
      an empty shell and a lavish testament to their unpardonable sin, (if
      only for the faithful few for whom it was a house of prayer) demands
      to be recognized as "Israel," even to the vexation of Torah true
      Jews who know better. Vainly the Jews gave lip service to the former
      greats of the tribe of Judah, such as King David, and even raised
      Abraham to the status of a demi-god in their revolting syncretism
      influenced by the Helenization, and their envy of pagan philosophy
      and a more pleasing, self-serving spiritual cosmology; all the while
      killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her for salvation
      time and time again. So polluted were they that they could not even
      recognize their true King when standing face to face with him
      despite the vast record of the prophets which described Him in
      unmistakable terms; when he would come, where he would be born, how
      he would be born, that he would heal the blind, restore hearing to
      the deaf, make the lame walk and even raise the dead. And the
      clearest picture of all, that he would offer himself up as a
      sacrifice for sins.

      Nonetheless, they were absolutely corrupted to the core, and either
      could not see, or would not see and rejected Him outright. Their
      vain claim to Abraham and the theft of his righteousness is rooted
      in their greed and devotion to the world of the flesh, of money, of
      power and control; misunderstanding that Abraham's seed were not
      counted as such according to race, or anything of the flesh, but
      according to faith and the promise given to that faith, which they
      feigned in ghastly religious piety according to rudiments of Law
      twisted to their own advantage (which has since resulted in the cult
      of 'Judaism'), not realizing in their zeal for law, "...It (the law)
      was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come
      (Christ) to whom the promise was made" (Galatians 3:19). The more
      they sought to rob the righteous of the chosen status by the Law,
      the more the Law judged them and condemned them to eternal death.
      Nevertheless, according to God's gracious choosing and election, a
      precious remnant was always preserved -- the faithful. These were
      the children of promise, of faith. Mystically ordained, even
      foreordained in eternity past, predestined to be conformed to the
      image of Christ. It had nothing to do with race. These of the faith
      were and remain the only 'chosen people' of God who have any claim
      to any inheritance, and only through Christ.

      It was said by God unto Abraham that he would be the father of
      nations, numbering as the sands of the sea and the stars of the
      heavens at a time when he was of advanced age and his wife far past
      her ability to conceive. Do the Jews number such in this world? Have
      they ever? No, they never have. Not even close. Put your thinking
      caps on... the mystery of the ages is unraveled, and quite evident.
      This single tribe, most of which is not even authentic today being
      Askenazi Jews and their descendants, is not 'Israel' -- neither do
      they have any right to lay claim to it by name or locale -- like
      Esau trying to buy back his birthright which he sold for a single
      meal, "For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited
      the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
      though he sought it carefully with tears." (Hebrews 12:17). The
      Zionist Jews who occupy that land of Palestine are nothing more than
      squatters, placed there by a world conspiracy orchestrated by the
      British and the United Nations. They have simply taken the seat of
      an ancient Royalty which is no more of this world, for it was
      completed with Christ Jesus, a Jew of the Royal house of David,
      whose throne is heavenly (that is, of the incorruptible and
      eternal), not earthly (the corruptible), until all his enemies are
      put beneath his feet.

      Zionist Jews today are no different than the ruling class of Jews in
      Christ's time, and make the same outrageous, wicked claims for the
      express purpose of stealing an inheritance which is not theirs, in
      the form of the land of Palestine and every benefit thereby derived.
      Worse, they openly and boldly manipulate the world, and law, and
      through extortion seek an absolute Teflon status in the political
      world system, as a recent Kinesset ruling demonstrates -- a global
      illegality in questioning any element or fact of the Holocaust! One
      by one, Israel is working to have these laws adopted around the
      world under the phony banner of 'hate-speech' legislation. The Anti-
      Defamation League has even gone so far as to suggest that the New
      Testament Gospel is hate literature, seeking now to make every Bible
      believing Christian a criminal under "hate-crime" legislation, with
      support of US State Department.

      These are the same Zionists these evangelical Christians have been
      in bed with for generations. It must be a rather rude awakening!

      It's A Slow Dance Of Death

      So what is driving Christian evangelicals to support antichrist
      Zionist Israel in spite of all this? Hoodwinked by many false
      converts from Judaism, who so over-emphasize the Jewish roots of
      Christianity to a complete dominance (naturally reducing the
      Christian experience to mere religion as is the result of the
      Judaistic poison), as well as by a myriad of Tele-
      evangelists/Preachers who feed their spiritually starving
      congregations with a litany of Old Covenant 'types and shadows'
      obsessions (some even going so far as to lead their congregations
      back to practices under the Mosaic ordinances, from observing
      Passover to various feasts and rituals), as well as the "Jewishness"
      obsessed 'Messianic' Christians (Jews who have converted to
      Christianity but who retain a varying degree of Jewish culture and
      religious tradition and fleshly pride, some to the dissolution or
      subordination of Christ's accomplishments at the cross -- some
      overshadowing the Christic New Covenant ordination and rebirth)
      hinging everything on a single element of prophecy - - the 'rebirth'
      of National Israel.

      One would be hard pressed to find any evangelical Christian that
      does not fully believe that the UN creation of the nation of Israel
      in 1948 was fulfillment of major Biblical prophecy, and regard it as
      a wonderful thing. Yet, it escapes their grasp, that what happened
      in '48 was not the prophesied rebirth of Israel, for the prophets
      state plainly that ALL Israel will be restored to the land, not
      merely the singular tribe of Judah, and certainly not what is
      presently there, being largely Askenasi Jews (Turkish converts to
      Judaism). Pining over the furthest prophesies of a golden-age
      Millennium where the Messiah rules and reigns over the entire earth
      from a throne in Jerusalem, evangelicals have allowed themselves to
      be swallowed whole by the fraudulent Zionist contingent, which is
      today nothing more than what Paul called "the concision" 2000 years
      ago -- "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the
      concision. For we (believers in Christ) are the (true) circumcision,
      which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and
      have no confidence in the flesh." (Philippians 3:2).

      Nothing has changed. They remain the same, anti-christ, worldly,
      greedy, extorting, violent, carnally rooted, spiritless, godless
      workers of iniquity about which a good portion of the New Testament
      letters give ample warning. But apparently to no avail among the
      evangelical churches today, punch drunk on Zionism (or a mixture of
      Zionism and "Dominion Now" theology which urges Christians to regard
      themselves as masters of this world on behalf of Christ and place a
      strong emphasis on worldly politics, power and control), somehow
      driven by guilt or a ruse into a false humility towards the Jews;
      still clinging to dead mandates (such as taking the Gospel "to the
      Jew first, then the Greek," which was accomplished and ended when
      Paul finally realized their judgment was complete and gave up on
      them), blind to their support and political allegiance to that which
      is fully anti-christ and which seeks the ultimate blasphemy against
      the God of Heaven, these churches, these Christians empower the
      greatest evil on earth today.

      The warnings are clear -- To have no union with them, to watch for
      their devises and schemes always -- who better to know of such
      things than a member of that very religio-political mafia than Paul
      himself, in both the flesh and in the mind?

      "Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man
      thinks that he has reason that he might trust in the flesh, I more
      so: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe
      of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a
      Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the
      righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were
      gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ." (Philippians 3:4).
      He knew them well, for he knew himself, and his experience on the
      road to Damascus, when he was changed from Saul into Paul, from a
      murderer of Christians in his Zionist zeal, to a follower of the
      ever-living Christ and conformed to a man of peace, he made plain
      the warning about the "enemies of the cross."

      The churches are without excuse in this despicable pro-Israel
      politic, which is stained in the world with much blood, rooted in
      the corruptions of the flesh, hopeless for reformation, condemned to
      the eternal grave, drowning in sin and founded upon the unpardonable
      blasphemy of the Spirit of Grace.

      two different decrees, one to return to rebuild the city, and a
      second to rebuild the temple. Either way, Y'shua of Nazareth (Jesus)
      is the only person to appear at that time which fulfilled all of the
      Messianic prophecies to the letter.
      [5] http://www.christiananswers.net/dictionary/ark.html - Its upper
      surface or lid, the mercy-seat, was surrounded with a rim of gold;
      and on each of the two sides were two gold rings, in which were
      placed two gold-covered poles by which the ark could be carried
      (Num. 7:9; 10:21; 4:5, 19-20; 1 Kings 8:3,6). At each end, there
      were two cherubim over the ark, with their faces turned toward each
      other (Lev. 16:2; Num. 7:89). Their outspread wings over the top of
      the ark formed the throne of God, while the ark itself was his
      footstool (Ex. 25:10-22; 37:1-9).
