I want to be liked and I am motivated to ingratiate myself to others. But, I have chosen to be on Yahweh’s side and it seems if you make that decision the world will hate you. This hate becomes more focused as the world becomes aware of what God is doing.
Allow me to explain by the example of a simple word called Zion or Zionist. My God, Yahweh, is a Zionist. He is the quintessential Zionist. Yahweh is a political Zionist and a spiritual Zionist. He has the objective of establishing His son on Zion and to have Him rule the world from that seat. Therefore, it is natural for those on God’s side to take the position of being a Zionist. A hundred years ago the word Zionist was just coming into the vocabulary of those outside the church and the Jewish Faith. In 1898, Theodor Herzl chaired what is now billed as the First Zionist Congress and the world says to this day, he is the father of Zionism. Well, that’s just not so. With all due respect to Theodor Herzl, God is the Father of Zionism, but I am being redundant. Before a Jew named Theodor Herzl brought the attention of the world to the Zionist movement, a Baptist called Robert Lowery puts this refrain on a poem called “We’re marching to Zion.”
We’re marching to Zion,
beautiful, beautiful Zion;
we’re marching upward to Zion,
the beautiful city of God.
Zionism was certainly popular a hundred or so years ago. Conferences were being called, songs were written and churches were being named after Zion. Many Mount Zion Churches were making their way onto the landscape. Something happened, however, while marching to Zion, the world became aware that Yahweh was fulfilling His promise to establish Zion. What a coincidence! The same time Yahweh decides to display His prophetic word before the world, His people start singing “We’re Marching to Zion.” Then, in 1948, a nation appeared on the face of the earth. The appearance of this nation got the world’s attention and to this day the world is distressed that this nation exists. The world applies the majority of its attention to stopping this nation. The nation of Israel is maintained and exists because Yahweh ordains it. It is obvious to the most uninterested observer that Israel is an unusual nation. Israel is completely surrounded by enemies who have over a ten to one advantage. They go to war with Israel from time-to-time. As each war completes, Israel does not get further from establishing their presence on mount Zion but closer. This causes one of two reactions: one of excitement or one of hate and despair. So, what about the word Zion? The world has not been able to defeat Zionism as God demonstrates His plan will not be undone. The churches no longer sing “We’re Marching to Zion” or name their places of worship after Zion. Why, because the world cannot say “Zionist” without adding a nasty superlative: “dirty Zionist”, “lying Zionist”, “imperialistic Zionist”, “Zionist pigs” or “Zionist racist.” These are just a few of the terms spilling out of the mouths and hearts of those who are in the world. This has caused the churches, who do not want to stand in the way of the offence, to stay silent about the plans of their Zionist God, Yahweh, to establish Zion. Indeed, some of the churches have joined with the world to fight against the purposes of Yahweh either overtly or covertly. But, the world fights, and before they fight they rage, and before they rage they hate and if you are standing on Yahweh’s side expect incoming, but stand, for the reward is great. Greater is He with Whom you stand. Those who stand are truly marching to Zion.

The Presbyterian Church USA has raised their voice to be the latest Christian denomination to defame and destroy Israel. Many denominations make the effort every year or so and I guess it is Presbyterian Church USA’s turn. Last year it was the United Church of Canada. Certain denominations rebuff Israel but couch their criticism in the pretence of protecting the human rights of the Palestinians. They call for Israel to be renounced, boycotted and isolated for violating the rights of terrorists. All the time their focus is on Israel: Churches are burned in Nigeria, Christians are killed in Sudan and Egypt and jailed in Pakistan and Iraq. Christians are driven out of Palestinian held territory and the last Christian radio station in the Palestinian controlled territories is shutdown and not a whisper out of the Presbyterian Church USA or any of their partners. The purpose of Yahweh to establish Israel is their target. To them it is just right that the purpose of God be thwarted so that the Presbyterian Church USA may have a doctrine that lives. Now where have I heard that before? This attack is so egregious and their reason so hollow that in the face of all the atrocities in the world you must wonder what is the problem with Israel? Their problem is simply the promotion of replacement theology. They believe that the destruction of Israel would justify their arguments that the Church has replaced Israel. Replacement theology has two problems: Israel lives and Israel is. This shouts at the replacement theological people that they are peddling a lie. To resurrect their doctrine they must destroy Israel. This is why these denominations call for a boycott against Israel but not one against Iran. Iran does not fly in the face of their doctrine. Iran is killing people in the streets and the Presbyterian Church USA is silent. Iran is boldly planning genocide and the Presbyterian Church USA is silent. Iran says it will drive Israel into the sea and the Presbyterian Church USA is silent. Israel announces that it is going to build apartments in Jerusalem and the Presbyterian Church USA call for a boycott. There is none so blind that they will not see.

History is replete with recordings of evil events. Evil events occur because evil reigns in the hearts of men. You would never hear this from CBS, NBC or CNN because they promote the template that evil is not in the hearts of men but rather men are innately good. These enlightened men believe that evil exists in those who are in pursuit of the righteousness of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The enlightened believe further that their God is evil if He is responsible or somehow could have prevented a “natural disaster” such as occurred in Haiti. This template, this world view, molds the news from all major news outlets. This was exemplified in the story about Pat Robertson’s comments about Haiti recorded by CNN, CBS, and NBC. There were no stories in the news media asking the question as to whether Pat Robertson was correct. There was no investigative reporting about the pact that the Haitians made with Satan. No stories about Haiti’s tragic history. No stories about the thoughts of the Haitians. No, this was all dismissed as nonsense. Who would ever think that even if the Haitians made a pack with Satan that it would have any effect, certainly not in the enlightened times of 2010. The world went with the template: Pat Roberson was as evil as they come because of his belief in Yahweh and his politically incorrect conclusions. “Why, any person of faith that believes that God controls the seas skies and earth is just evil”, screams the enlightened to the world. The enlightened, are good, wise and reasonable and have everything under control; but, they promote a god who loses control. They have created a god in their image: a god who had nothing to do with the earthquake in Haiti.
Yahweh, the God who created me, does not lose control and had control of the situation in Haiti. Yahweh has intent in every thing that He does and He does all things including control of the earth and the sea. I also know that Yahweh has placed two doors in front of every soul and group on earth. Door one has Life written upon it and door two has Death written upon it. The placement of these doors before all is a “God given liberty.” God’s love, another characteristic of my God, motivated Him to put out a suggestion. He said, “Chose life that you and your children may live.” So the 250,000 deaths that occurred in Haiti may and most probably were because of what they or their fathers chose! What a concept. They choose life, they get life; they choose death, they get death. God gives you a choice. You choose wrong and the media will not attribute the outcome to your choice, they will rather demonize anyone who would presume to acknowledge God’s sovereignty. The good thing about my God is that He gives second chances, new beginnings. Often the awareness of that second chance comes immediately after a disaster, such as the earthquake in Haiti. It is Yahweh’s way to make men aware that He is God and He has set before them two doors. Enlightened men, armed with their templates, come to take this awareness out of the hearts of men. But, praise Yahweh, the people in Haiti did not get the news from CNN, CBS or NBC. Instead they repented of their voodoo and satanic ways and understood that door one was still a choice Haiti is now on the border of a new beginning. May Haiti live. Am Israel Chai!

The arrest and indictment of top military figures in Turkey last week precipitated potentially the most severe crisis since Mustafa Kemal Atatürk founded the republic in 1923. The weeks ahead will probably indicate whether the country continues its slide toward Islamism or reverts to its traditional secularism. The denouement has major implications for Muslims everywhere.
Turkey’s military has long been both the state’s most trusted institution and the guarantor of Atatürk’s legacy, especially his laicism. Devotion to the founder is not some dry abstraction but a very real and central part of a Turkish officer’s life; as journalist Mehmet Ali Birand has documented, cadet-officers hardly go an hour without hearing Atatürk’s name invoked.
