Sabbath Word (Aug.24/19) Reincarnation: Did You Have A Past Life?

Sabbath Day (Ex.20: 8 – 11)       Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019

In Messiah’s name: God’s word is the truth (Jn.17: 17 & Ps. 119: 142) and Sin is the transgression of the law. (1Jn. 3: 4)

The following is an up-dated rant on “reincarnation”, which I wrote three and a half years ago and I thought I’d use it as a “word” for this Sabbath.

As you may know the term “reincarnation” is not found in the bible. However, there are those who claim it is hinted at in Matt.17: 12 & Mark 9: 11 – 13. That is, Messiah seems to suggest that John, the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah (Elias), but that is not the case. John, the Baptist came in the power and spirit that was typical of Elijah.

In addition, during Messiah’s ministry, the Pharisees for example, believed in a resurrection, not reincarnation as some also claim, while the Sadducees did not believe in a resurrection . See Acts.23: 6 – 8.

Here’s the definition of “reincarnation”.

It is defined as “a rebirth of the soul in successive fleshly bodies”. The Latin means “to enter the flesh again”. The bible teaches that after death (totally unconscious/asleep) there will be a resurrection to eternal life for the righteous, while an eternal death for those who followed Satan and rejected the Creator and his Son. In other words, we do not have an immortal soul which is reincarnated after death.

Reincarnation is foolishness. It’s a pagan philosophy.

The adherents to this demonic-inspired theology believe they are immortal – you die and then reincarnated, over and over again. If this was so, and the purpose of many lives is to accord a person a chance to correct the evils/wrongs/wickedness in his/her life, then why does so much wickedness, lies, war, murder, rape, crimes, etc. continue to increase in this present world?

In other words, if reincarnation were true, then this world should be a righteous, just and a peaceful one, since humans – with many lives – would have had thousands of years to modify their behaviour.

How many personal reincarnations would it take for a person to become a righteous individual — five, ten, a thousand lives?? A million lives would not make a person righteous and just, because they’d be born right back into the same world from which they left – one that is filled with lies, deception and wickedness.

Belief in reincarnation is for the ignorant, fools and the grossly deluded! Those who remain so, will experience a SECOND DEATH from which there is no resurrection.

Take to heart the following words that describe the dreadful end of the followers of Satan.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Rev.21: 8)

Be wise and repent!

The Father’s commandments, statutes and judgments have not been abolished. They are the foundational principles of the New Agreement – The New Covenant which Messiah followed – he did not do away with them. May you reject the Serpent’s lifestyle and follow the great I AM’s Son, Yahshua, Messiah.

All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.

Peace, blessings and protection to all who love the truth.

Teacher Triggers Outrage: “I Will NOT Refer To You With Female Pronouns”

rare.us      by Silke Jasso             Thurs., Aug. 22, 2019

A teacher at Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Florida is in quite a pickle after reportedly giving a transgender student a horrible ultimatum: to use male pronouns or switch classes. According to the student, she emailed her math teacher Thomas Caggiano, asking him to refer her with female pronouns.

Caggiano refused to do so, writing “I will NOT refer to you with female pronouns. If this is not acceptable for you, change classes. I will call you by any reasonable name you like, but the pronouns are not a negotiable thing for me.”

The emails were quickly posted on social media and have since sparked outrage from students and outside commentators. They quickly brought the messages to the school’s board for attention.

Duval County Public Schools, which Sandalwood High is part of, released a statement saying they regretted the teacher’s conduct but hoped they could learn from the “incident” and move forward using this as a teachable moment.

They will give additional diversity training for the school teachers. The school district’s policy has some guidelines around transgender students including addressing the students by the pronoun they feel comfortable with and allowing students to wear clothing consistent with their gender identity.

Unfortunately, the school has not made any comment in regards to Caggiano’s current employment status, but he is still listed on the school’s faculty page. Which is devastating because this student will probably see this teacher every day, and remember his nasty comments.

Israel Is Not A U.S. Ally! It’s An Illusion. Here’s How and Why!

Information Clearing House.info     By If Americans Knew    Thurs., Aug.22, 2019

Andrew Sullivan comments on the U.S.-Israel relationship and the role of “pro-Israel” lobbying groups in our politics in a new essay. There are several things that I think Sullivan gets wrong, but perhaps the most significant and pervasive error in the piece is his repeated description of the relationship an “alliance.”

He notes that the U.S. gets nothing in return for the extensive military and diplomatic support that it provides, he acknowledges that the U.S. “suffers internationally” on account of its close relationship with Israel, and he marvels at how badly its government under Netanyahu has behaved towards the U.S. Nonetheless, he writes, “I would defend the alliance despite this, because of my core belief in a Jewish state.”

The trouble with all this is that there is no alliance and Israel is not our ally. Its government does not behave as an ally does, it has never fought alongside U.S. forces in any of our foreign wars, and its interests are not aligned with ours as an ally’s should be. There is no formal treaty and no binding obligations that require our governments to do anything for the other.

There are few words in U.S. foreign policy debates used more frequently and with less precision than ally and alliance. Our politicians and pundits use these terms to refer to almost every state with which the U.S. has some kind of security relationship, and it always grossly exaggerates the nature and extent of the ties between our governments.

The exaggeration in Israel’s case is greatest of all because it is routinely called our “most important ally” in the region, or even our “most cherished ally” in all the world. These are ideological assertions that are not grounded in any observable reality.

Dozens of other states all over the world are better allies to the United States than the “most cherished ally” is, and they don’t preside over an illegal occupation that implicates the U.S. in decades of abuses and crimes against the Palestinian people living under that occupation, but none of them enjoys the lockstep, uncritical backing that this one state does.

The effect of this constant repetition is to make the U.S.-Israel relationship seem extremely important to U.S. interests when it is not, and that serves to promote the “illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists.” It is this illusion as much as anything else that prevents a serious reassessment of the relationship…

Jewish Group Want Ukrainian President To Construct “Little Jerusalem” In City of Uman

For those who don’t know, the Ukrainian Pres was a Jewish comedian and the nation of Ukraine was formerly known as the Khazarian Empire. (r. a. note)

USSA News.com       By JNS.org           Wed., Aug.21, 2019

JNS.org – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (pic above) said on Monday that he would look into an alleged corruption saga that has reportedly been holding up the construction of a synagogue in the city of Uman for more than a decade.

Zelensky’s remarks came during a meeting with Duvi Honig, founder and CEO of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, shortly before the president held his first-ever meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other top Israeli officials.

The saga began more than 10 years ago, when Israeli businessman Yisrael Elhadad acquired a large parcel of land in Uman, near the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, the founder of the Breslov Chassidic movement.

He planned to build a massive Jewish center on the site, with a large synagogue and a mikvah. The need was great, he felt, as there was currently no large synagogue in the city, even though tens of thousands of Jews travel to the city every year on Rosh Hashanah to visit Rabbi Nachman’s grave.

The Uman City Council approved the plans, according to Elhadad, but the Town Council then refused to allow the project to proceed, allegedly demanding a $350,000 bribe. When Elhadad refused, the council rezoned the property as a public park and began doing site work, preventing the construction of the synagogue.

Elhadad and several Jewish community leaders from Ukraine asked Honig to help. On Aug. 15, led a delegation to Uman to view the site and a press conference in Kiev at the Interfax News Agency headquarters.

He also made a plea to the president, who is Jewish, to keep his promise to enable a “Little Jerusalem” in Uman.

On Monday, Zelensky met with Honig to discuss the crisis. Zelensky said he viewed the issue seriously and would work to restore the site to its rightful owner.

The president also said he would dispatch a delegation of aides to Uman to speak with local officials and share developments with members of the Israeli delegation.

“I would like to thank President Zelensky for his swift action and determination to fight corruption and help the Jewish community, and we look forward to a quick resolution of this matter,” said Honig.

Trump Branded As Anti-Semitic! Here’s The Reason.

Middle East Monitor.com           Wed., Aug.21, 2019

US President Donald Trump described Jews who vote for Democrats of “great disloyalty”, prompting wide scale condemnation and charges of anti-Semitism. Trump made the comments in the Oval Office yesterday during an exchange with journalists in which he lashed out against Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and  Ilhan Omar.

“I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” said Trump at the tail end of remarks which critics say is intended to drive a partisan wedge over Israel during the 2020 election.

Trump made the comment in response to a question about remarks made by Omar on Monday calling on the US to suspend aid to Israel. “We give Israel more than $3 [billion] in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region and the only democracy in the Middle East. But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally, and denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self-determination is not consistent with being a democracy,” Omar said at a press conference in her home state.

Trump took the opportunity to launch into a tirade in which he accused Omar and Tlaib – strong critics of Israel – of anti-Semitism. Both also support the right of Americans to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, a peaceful global protest against Israel that seeks to replicate the success of the anti-apartheid movement against white South African rule.

Trump expressed shock and surprise over how far the discussion on Israel had moved in favour of the Palestinians. He said that three to five years ago discussion on cutting aid to Israel would not have been a consideration for a member of US Congress. Blaming the Democrats for the change he asked “Where has the Democratic Party gone?”

“Where have they gone,” he continued “where they’re defending these two people over the state of Israel? And I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

Trump Is The King Of Israel — “God-like”!

Middle East Monitor.com        Wed., Aug.21, 2019

US President Donald Trump endorsed the view that he is like the “King of Israel” and godlike in a bizarre Twitter thread today.

Arch-conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root asserted that Israelis love Trump like the “second coming of god” describing him as being “like the King of Israel”.

Trump said in a tweet: “Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him…”

He then tweeted that Root claimed American Jews who dislike him “don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore”, in his latest attempt to conflate anti-Semitism with criticism of Israel.

This comes after the US president said that Jews who voted for the Democratic Party were “disloyal” in his response to Palestinian-American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s tearful speech about the oppression herself and her family face as Palestinians. Trump’s criticism of voters brought about accusations of anti-Semitism.

Americans are due to head to the polls next year to vote for their next president with Trump said to be driving a partisan wedge over Israel ahead of the elections.

Two Courageous US Congresswomen Speak Out Against The Crimes Of Israel

PRESS TV.com          Tues., Aug. 20, 2019

US Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar (on right) and Rashida Tlaib (on left) have stepped up their criticism of the Israeli regime after being banned from traveling to Tel Aviv, asking their colleagues to visit the occupied Palestinian territories to experience first-hand the regime’s cruel policies and how they affect Palestinians.

Omar said at a joint press conference with Tlaib that suggested US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were working to keep lawmakers from fulfilling their oversight duties..

“I would encourage my colleagues to visit, meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear,” Omar said. “We cannot let Trump and Netanyahu succeed in hiding the cruel reality of the occupation from us.”
Netanyahu’s regime said Saturday it would deny entry to Tlaib and Omar of Minnesota following an appeal from Trump.

The lawmakers, who were planning a trip to both Jerusalem al-Quds and the West Bank, are supporters of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and have publicly criticized the regime despite pressure from both sides of the aisle.

Omar said the ban made them “feel like our (citizenship) certificate is less than theirs.”

“So we are going to hold our head up high. And we are going to fight this administration and the oppressive Netanyahu administration until we take our last breath,” she argued.
Tlaib, a US-born Palestinian-American who represents a Michigan district in the House of Representatives, is no longer expected to visit her aging grandmother in the West Bank as a result of the ban.

Israeli officials later on said she could visit her grandmother but this time Tlaib refused to accept the offer.

The Michigan lawmaker got emotional as she recalled her grandmother’s tearful phone call asking her to not visit them under such humiliating circumstances.

Trump warned Israeli officials last week that letting the two lawmakers into Israel would be a “show of weakness.”

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley accused the two lawmakers of anti-Semitism.
