ISRAEL'S INCREASING ANTI-CHRISTIANITY
By Rev. Ted Pike 30 Dec 09
The period of the Great Crusades saw the forces of the Christian west and Muslim east engage in futile military efforts to decide who would control Palestine, with power to exclude others. After millions died, the exhausted combatants finally reached a compromise that has proved amicable for nearly a millennium: Each of the three great religions claiming special kinship to Israel—Christians, Jews and Muslims— would have freedom as pilgrims and even residents to worship in the sacred places of the Holy Land.
Yet, with return of Jews to Israel in the 20 th century, a different mentality emerged, one shared by Christian evangelicals. The Jews returned to a land they considered entirely and unconditionally theirs—a land in which Jewish worship, customs and laws enjoyed a Biblical right to predominate.
Now Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox rabbinical authorities in Israel increasingly assert that Israel has the right to actually exclude Christians and Muslims from full participation in the religious life of the nation.
Although Israel’s population is largely secular, the official religious position of the state is Orthodox. The Encyclopedia Judaica: “There are very few Reform or Conservative congregations in the State of Israel. Orthodoxy is the official religious position in Israel with the majority of rabbis belonging to the old school of Talmudic jurists.”  The Grand Rabbinate in Jerusalem determines what is “halakah,” or binding Jewish law, not only to lesser rabbinic authorities but in every level of the nation’s life and commerce—even in the military.
Unlike in America, there is no separation of synagogue and state in Israel.
And, unlike in America, which was founded largely on respect for the Bible, Orthodoxy in Israel is established squarely on the teachings of the ancient Pharisees as embodied in their Babylonian Talmud and its mystical/revolutionary companion, the Zohar or Kabbalah. 
Both Talmud and Zohar are vehemently anti-Christian. The Talmud views Christ as the bastard son of Mary, a loose woman. He was also a false prophet who led Israel into apostasy. It says Jewish leaders righteously had Him crucified and He now languishes in hell, writhing in boiling semen. (See actual pages from the Talmud confirming this at the end of this article.) Considering such anti-Christian animus from Israel’s highest religious authority, it is understandable why Christian inhabitants of Palestine have fared poorly over the last century.
The Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem documents hundreds of acts of discrimination and persecution against Christians almost since the beginning of the Zionist experiment.  These include profanation of Christian churches and holy places as well as a general program of unpublicized harassment and discrimination. Much of the energy behind such anti-Christianity has emerged from the Grand Rabbinate in Jerusalem and the many Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox rabbis under its influence. (Ultra-Orthodox haredim differ from Orthodox primarily in their exaltation of the authority of the Zohar above the Talmud.)
At the turn of the 20 th century, upwards of 20 percent of the inhabitants of Palestine were Christian; but as a result of incessant, long-term discrimination, only 2 percent are Christian today – and that number is shrinking.
Rabbinic War on Christmas
Recent events in Israel leading up to Christmas confirm efforts by the Grand Rabbinate and lesser rabbinic councils to exclude Christianity from Palestine. A recent Ha’aretz article says the Rabbinate stands behind the “'Lobby for Jewish Values" in its attempts to eradicate Christian symbols from Jerusalem, especially during Christmas. They are “condemning the holiday and inciting the public to boycott restaurants and hotels that sell or put up Christmas trees and other ‘foolish’ Christian symbols…” Their intention is to revoke kosher certification for any business that allows a Christian symbol to be displayed, thus probably ruining them. (See Rabbis versus Christmas: Religious rivalry in Jerusalem benefits no one)
Such behavior reflects a deep loathing for Christianity within Talmudic Orthodoxy.
WorldNetDaily recently published Ha’aretz’s article “Christians in Jerusalem Want Jews to Stop Spitting on Them.” It begins: “A few weeks ago, a senior Greek Orthodox clergyman in Israel attended a meeting…When he returned to his car, an elderly man wearing a skullcap came and knocked at the window. As the clergyman let the window down, the passerby spat in his face.
"The clergyman preferred not to lodge a complaint with police and told an acquaintance that he was used to being spat at by Jews. Many Jerusalem clergy have been subjected to abuse of this kind.”
“According to Daniel Rossing, former advisor to the Religious Affairs Ministry on Christian Affairs…there has been an increase in the number of such incidents recently, ‘…as part of a general atmosphere of lack of tolerance in the country,’” particularly during the Purim holiday (which celebrates Israel’s bloody revenge on Gentile persecutors in the book of Esther). Rossing said, “I know Christians who lock themselves indoors during the entire Purim holiday.”
Dr. Israel Shahak, an Israeli citizen, former WWII concentration camp inmate and founder of Israel's Human Rights League, says, "Dishonoring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, and especially on the crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, has been obligatory from around 200 AD for pious Jews…
The increasing strength of the Jewish nation has caused these customs to become more open again but there should be no mistake: the spitting on the cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, organized in Kibbutz Sa'ad and financed by the Israeli government, is an act of traditional Jewish piety." 
Much of the spitting is indulged in by Yeshiva students immersed in study of the Talmud, says former advisor on Christian affairs to the mayor, Shmuel Evyatar. He says the “rabbis of yeshivas ignore or even encourage it.” Police and courts are usually lax in punishment.
Such increasing intolerance in Israel also manifests itself as advice and authoritative decrees from Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox rabbinic courts, sanctioning discrimination, harassment, and even violence against Christians and Palestinians. The Talmud encourages not only deception of and theft from the “goyim” (Gentiles) but murder if such can be performed indirectly or through trickery. It is vital that Jew get away with it without causing shame to Israel. Otherwise, he causes “profanation of God’s holy name.” 
One of a number of Talmudic passages often cited by rabbinical courts as they define halachic law to Israel’s military forces or to settlers is that of Simon ben Yohai, one of Israel’s most highly esteemed sages, who said “the best of the Gentiles deserve to be killed.”  So enormous is esteem for ben Yohai that every year in Meron in southern Israel (ben Yohai’s birthplace) tens of thousands of Kabalistic Jews (ultra-Orthodox haredim) sing and dance for a week in honor of his memory.
Confirming the above, online article “Israeli Rabbi Approves Murder of Non-Jews” by the National Newspaper says, “A book published this week by a radical Jewish rabbi…endorsed by prominent religious right-wing figures, suggests killing any non-Jew including children and babies who pose a threat to Israel. [The book] reflects a growing antipathy toward Palestinians among Jews living in the occupied territory…Michael Warschawsky, the founder of the Jerusalem-based Alternative Information Centre, said the book went public with a concept that was already being promoted in a quieter way by dozens of settler rabbis…”
The King’s Torah is described by the mass-selling Israeli newspaper Maariv as “a guide to whoever is deliberating if and when it is necessary and permissible to take the life of someone who is not Jewish.”
“According to Israeli press reports that provided excerpts of the book, the rabbis do not shy away from calling for the killing of any non-Jew who may threaten the state of Israel. They write: ‘In any place that the presence of a gentile endangers the existence of Israel, it is allowed to kill him…also, if he is completely not to blame for the situation that has been created.’…Children, the authors insist, should not be exempt from this fate.
They add: ‘There is a reasonable explanation for killing infants if it is clear that they will grow up to hurt us – and in this situation, the strike should be directed at them.’ According to the book, the children of a non-Jewish leader may be targeted as a means of applying pressure.
The authors say that even innocent people are allowed to be killed if they belong to a state that Israel considers an enemy. The rabbis added that non-Jews could also be killed if they ‘violate…commandments’ such as the prohibition against…idol-worshipping.” (See Israeli Rabbi Approves Murder of Non-Jews)
Christians, the Talmud repeatedly emphasizes, are the most dangerous kind of idol worshippers – devotees of the false prophet Jesus. The Talmud says brotherly love need not extend to Christians; rather, they may legally be thrown into a pit to die. (and THIS kind of thinking is what undergirds the NOAHIDE LAWS and coming BEHEADING OF CHRISTIANS under 2 of their rabbinical Noahide laws, fulfilluing Revelation 20:4.)
Speech Crime Laws Prevail in Israel
Although it touts itself the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel, under influence of Orthodoxy, has created “speech crimes” laws that outlaw any effective witness of Christians to Jews. On December 26, 1977, Knesset passed Israel’s anti-missionary law which imposes up to a five-year prison term for anyone who attempts to convert an Israeli with assistance of any material inducement such as a gospel tract or even a cup of coffee. All witnessing to Israeli youth under 18 is illegal, while any “conspicuous” witnessing to a Jewish person is against the law. (This is strictly a manifestation of Jewish communist laws prevalent throughout Russia under communism. Christians were forbidden to evangelize to anyone under the age of 18, INCLUDING THEIR OWN CHILDREN!)
While Israel, largely dependent on Christian evangelical tourist dollars, is loathe to generate bad publicity by imprisoning Christian evangelists, it is not reluctant to discreetly arrest and deport them (See Christian Deported From Israel).
In the West Bank and central Israel, the anti-Christian dictums of haredi rabbis are particularly unrestrained, bringing many years of incessant persecution upon messianic Jewish citizens. In Arad, the messianic Jewish community is led by Lura Maimon Beckford and her husband. They reveal through articles and videos on their website (http://kingsmenarad.com/) the unending harassment this community of Jewish Christians endures under the dominant ultra-Orthodox.
In collusion with local police, judges and rabbis, such persecution has continued for at least the past six years while the government of Israel does nothing. (See Christians in Israel: An Endangered Species)
Beckford, with foreboding, asks in her latest alert, "Please pray for us. Christmas time is here again!” She says, "….on Christian high holy days, like Christmas, Easter, and Passover, the Pharisees (ultra-Orthodox) and anti-missionary inflammatory groups… are apt to wage a barrage of hate crimes against Believers, our places, and things. Ironically, we don't have any problem with Israeli Arabs and Palestinians because they view Jesus as a Holy Prophet and respect Him."
She says, " Israel passed its anti-mission law (five- to seven-year jail term for witnessing to anyone under 18) on Christmas Day 1977." On "Christmas Eve 2005, a huge mob of Pharisees (ultra-Orthodox) entered the Beersheva congregation throwing the pastor into the baptismal pool, slapping some of the old women around, and wrecking the place.

Calev Myers, founder and chief counsel of The Jerusalem Institute, which provides legal advice and representation to persecuted Messianic Jews, says: " Israel is the only Western country where basic freedom of religion is denied." (Note-How very Jewish-communist of them!)
Evangelicals Fund Persecutors
Anti-Christianity in Israel is not only fueled by the Orthodox establishment but, incredibly, by evangelical Christians themselves. The Jerusalem Post (Oct 23, 2009) says that evangelicals have donated $70 million a year to Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein’s “International Fellowship of Christians and Jews,” one of a number of Israeli charities accepting millions annually from Christians. But Eckstein admits now that much of it has gone toward support of the very Orthodox and haredi groups most responsible for harassment and persecution of Christians in Israel today!
The Post says, “Various haredi organizations in Israel and abroad receive money from the IFCJ or have received support in the past.” Part of the evangelical millions, according to Eckstein, goes to fund orthodox and ultra-orthodox rabbinical organizations as far away as the Ukraine and Morocco, including the Rabbinate in Turkey. (See Christian donor to out haredi recipients)
Every Christian is bound by Scripture to donate first to “those of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10) i.e. Christian churches, missionaries and charities. “Israel-first” evangelicals have no justification for this ungodly drain on Christian resources to assist the persecutors of their brethren. Like the church of Laodicea in the Book of Revelation, which thought itself both rich and wise, such evangelicals may be wealthy in worldly goods. Yet they fulfill Christ’s prophecy that in the end times “even the very elect if possible will be deceived.” (Matthew 24:24)
They are blind where it really matters—in wisdom and caution concerning those whom Christ repeatedly called “the synagogue of Satan” and of whom He warned us to beware.

The Soncino Talmud’s footnote to AZ 16b (pg. 84) says that “minuth” (plural, “minim”) refers to “heresy with special reference to Christianity.” “Minim, informers, and apostates may be cast in [to a pit to die] and need not be brought up.”
Here is the Talmud’s description of Christ’s gruesome death, Sanhedrin 106a-106b. The Jewish Encyclopedia in its article "Balaam," pg 469, says the pseudonym Balaam "is given to Jesus in Sanh. 106b and Git. 57a."

Please note: this article is NOT an indictment against ALL JEWS! This would be utterly unfair and biased. I have worked for Jewish families for years, I have many Jewish friends, I have a background of loving the Jews whenever God has brought them into my life. I have personally spoken to Jews who told me how uncomfortable they are about what is planned for America under the NEW WORLD ORDER, and the Jewish involvement.
Messianic Jews are true heroes of the Jewish faith! Support them in your prayers and contributions to their Messianic Synagogues. Pray for them under persecution in Israel. Love and encourage them. They are the true spiritual Remnant of God's true Chosen People in Israel.
Your prayers can help reach these Jews with the Love of God through Jesus Christ their Messiah. You response of LOVE and prayer and compassion to all Jews after reading this is the proper Christian Biblical response. A response of HATE and malevolence is NOT OF GOD nor Jesus Christ.
Germany felt severely threatened in it's day by Jewish socialists/communists, knowing what happened to Russia. They same people were working to undermine Germany and had succeeded in many of their goals.This is the historical truth behind the Holocaust, and it was reality. There is much historical documentation confirming this. http://www.revisionisthistory.org/communist.html
But the HOLOCAUST response was an abomination to God! It targeted indiscriminately ALL Jews, young and old alike, those involved in communism and those not. A "FINAL SOLUTION" to perceived threat of Jewish NWO communism, and against Christianity is NEVER God's BIBLICAL SOLUTION to sin or spiritual darkness. There is no justification for a Holocaust against ANY person or people. WE are called to REMAIN CHRISTIANS in the image of Jesus Christ our Saviour and Messiah, in our behaviour and response to all persecution and hate. Jesus Christ said from the Cross: "FATHER FORGIVE THEM for they KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!"
A Russian Church in Arvada, Colorado, has in big words over their altar: "FATHER FORGIVE THEM for they know NOT what they do!" And these Christians KNOW that the Jewish communists and Gentile supporters/converts persecuted them unto imprisonment and torture and death for over 8 decades under their communism. They tore down their churches. They spied on their brethren.
But THERE REMAINS THAT CERTAIN ELEMENT OF JEWS, who DO believe in COMMUNISM ACTIVELY throughout the USA (and worldwide) and see it as their tool to being about their anticipated WORLD JEWISH REIGN under the messiah to come (the ANTICHRIST, even as Jews have boasted to me) who will put down all Christian resistance and in fact help enable them to be put to death.
The NEW WORLD ORDER is simply WORLD GLOBALIST COMMUNISM repackaged to help disguise what it really is and who is really behind this agenda. This is why you will find MANY Jews in high positions of power in our nation, to help bring down their NEW WORLD ORDER (COMMUNISM) This includes powerful influence through NEWS MEDIA, HOLLYWOOD, GOVERNMENT/WHITE HOUSE/HOMELAND SECURITY, etc., positions of power that have all worked together for this communist agenda (NWO) for our nation.
This world globalist communism has already destroyed countless Christian lives and churches and Bibles, etc., in every nation into which it has come.
Jewish communists throughout America work hard through the ACLU ("ANTI-CHRIST LABOR UNION") to destroy our Christian freedoms. Jewish communist teachers and professors have infiltrated our education systems, schools and colleges, to preach the doctrines undergirding communism and antiChristianity. Jewish satanists called sabbateans are actively warring against Christianity throughout America. Jewish communist Luciferians work hard to establish their antichrist/666 cashless society banking system via the Rothschild's and co-laborers. The Rothschilds, based out of NEW YORK CITY at that time, plotted and funded the Bolshevik Revolution, with many other Jewish supporters.
Jewish anti-missionary organizations work hard to fight Christian missionaries exercising their freedoms in America to evangelize among all peoples including the Jews. Such include: Yad L'achim, Jews for Judaism, Lubavitch Chabad, and many more.
Anti-Christian Jewish groups like the militant LUBAVITCH CHABAD write the NOAHIDE LAWS designed to behead Christians in our nation and worldwide under their NOAHIDE LAWS.
The tragedy of those Jews who have chosen to reject their Messiah and persecute those who DO accept Him, has resulted in tragedy throughout the centuries.
The darkest manifestation of Jews rejecting the Messiah and persecuting those who do accept Him, has resulted in the greatest ongoing holocaust of all, ugly COMMUNISM, beginning with the Bolshevik Revolution in the early 1900's. Funded directly out of the Jewish communities of the super-rich in NYC, beginning with the Rothschilds and Jewish co-founders/funders, communism rose up to destroy the lives of tens of millions of innocent Christians throughout Russia and beyond. Communism was used by this element of Jews to destroy countless Christian lives and churches in every nation wherein they have invaded with the WORLD GOVERNMENT OF ANTICHRIST.
COMMUNISM is the world government of ANTICHRIST of Revelation 13. It takes MANY YEARS to subdue the entire earth under a communist/socialist world government described in Revelation 13, and not a mere 7 years spoken of as an outline in Revelation. The Bible only gives us glimpses of major events regarding this, as in REVELATION. RUSSIA is that nation in which the Jewish Illuminati Rothschilds chose to begin their world takeover. Note that the book of Revelation describes the coming WORLD BEAST government as having the FEET OF A BEAR. The Russian national symbol and animal mascot is THE BEAR! Having the FEET OF A BEAR indicates that this is the major moving force behind this world government of antichrist.
The world would have you believe that RUSSIAN COMMUNISM HAS BEEN TOPPLED! That the Russian military is in shambles. That COMMUNISM THROUGH RUSSIAis no longer a world threat. HOW FOOLISH TO BELIEVE THIS PROPAGANDA AND THIS DANGEROUS LIE! The communists planned this for years, to DECEIVE THE WEST! But not all in America are deceived, and that includes the COMMUNISTS IN AMERICA TODAY. How well they KNOW that the NEW WORLD ORDER is indeed COMMUNISM, and that martial law takeover is their HOUR OF COMMUNIST TAKEOVER power! READ this excerpt from the book THE PERESTROIKA DECEPTION:
'The Perestroika Deception' explains the devious secret intent behind the Leninist strategy which the 'former' Communists are pursuing under cover of fake 'reform' and 'progress towards democracy'. The immediate strategic objective is 'convergence' with the West -- on their terms, not ours. The ultimate objective is Lenin's: replacement of nations states with collective regional governments as building blocks of the 'New World Social Order' -- World [Communist] Government."
LISTEN to the interveiw of Yuri Bezmenov regarding the coming COMMUNIST TAKEOVER of AMERICA:
Russia is soon to shock the world and ROAR BACK INTO WORLD CONQUERING POWER! Russian military might far exceeds the USA now. Russia will soon fulfill Bible prophecy in Revelation 13 as the BEAST THAT WAS, and IS NOT, and now IS once again!
COMMUNISM already has established the pattern of the WORSHIP OF THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE in communist places like NORTH KOREA, where statues of Kim Il Sung have been erected and people told to WORSHIP HIS STATUE AS GOD! This is a return to world conquering and worship of Roman emperors indeed.
And through the Jewish Illuminati (Satanist) Rothschilds banking system over the world, they are working hard to establish their Luciferic CASHLESS SOCIETY and the MARK OF THE BEAST chip implant as well.
THIS is what the NAU then is all about: the bringing together of three different nations to form REGION NUMBER ONE (Canada/North America/Mexico) of the ten world regions (revelation 13: ten kings who will rule the world under the ANTICHRIST BEAST.)
Even as Russian Communists created gulags and hauled Christian and political resisters of COMMUNISM to the gulags by trains across the USSR, even so shall Christians be hauled in boxcars and shackles to the modern GULAG SYSTEM now erected across America/Canada/Alaska, to be brutally persecuted, tempted to deny their faith, tortured and killed. HOMELAND SECURITY camps will be used extensively under martial law for their grim purpose.
WHY do you think rabid NWO supporter, JEW MICHAEL CHERTOV, was once the HEAD OF HOMELAND SECURITY? Would he have any problem with Christians being put to death under martial law in Homeland Security camps? Not at all, which is WHY he was placed in that role to begin with. Nor will Janet Napolitano either...And there are many Jews who support the NWO agenda sitting on staff at homeland Security to this day.People are being selectively placed into positions of power they will utterly agree with the NWO agenda for our nation, including throughout our US government, our US military, the Pentagon, the intelligence community, the modern day US GULAG system including HOMELAND SECURITY and FEMA, and beyond
WHY do you think that Russian spies are bragging to Russian Christians in America openly now, saying, "HA! STUPID AMERICANS! As life WAS in RUSSIA, so shall it soon be in AMERICA!"
WHY do you think Russia has been secretly involved in the building of NEW GULAG CAMPS in the ALEUTIAN ISLANDS off the coast of ALASKA, to intern and kill off American resisters of the NEW WORLD ORDER under martial law?
WHY do you think Russian troops are already here in the USA and Alaska and Canada, and are being trained to attack American resisters of the NEW WORLD ORDER (communist takeover in America) under martial law? And why do you think CHINA, a major world communist power, is also involved in America's national debt...and if we fail to repay them, they are invited to come into America and TAKE IT OVER as repayment...thanks to our NWO/ communist/Illuminati leaders in America today!
Did you know, that Russia has demanded and received, secretly, FOUR US STATES as payments for their help in setting up MARTIAL LAW TAKEOVER? Those states are: Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. NO WONDER I discovered so MUCH NWO preparations taking place in those states and the pacific Northwest! No WONDER Russian spies are bragging about taking over in Washington state to my Russian Christian friends there! NO WONDER there are so many sightings of PRISONER BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES and secret camps throughout that region! NO WONDER RUSSIANS are bragging to Americans in Washington state: "Be careful WHAT you say, be careful WHAT you do...THIS IS NO LONGER AMERICA! (Reported from Soap Lake, Washington.)
BY THE WAY, did you know that the PRISONER BOXCARS WITH SHACKLES company, Gunderson Steel of Portland, OR, is JEWISH-OWNED AND OPERATED?Ken and Sally Gunderson are Jewish. GUNDERSON has accepted millions of dollars from the US government to build these deadly prisoner boxcars with shackles to haul Patriot and Christian Americans to their deaths to the camps under martial law. Sally Gunderson is a Messianic Jew, however. God bless her! I am sure she is not happy with this Gunderson agenda...
Thank you, dear Comrade OBAMA, even as Russian leader Dmitri Medvedev called Obama recently...for preparing to complete the years of previous labors of the world globalist communists and NWO supporters in our once free AMERICA!
WELCOME COMMUNIST CONQUERORS! (NEVER!)
And this is why you will find many in the Jewish communities secretly rejoicing over the thoughts of Christians being "sent to the camps, "even as one Jew admitted to me in visiting her relatives in NEW YORK CITY.
Many of today's Jews believe that COMMUNISM is their key to WORLD JEWISH REIGN and the purging of the world of the hated CHRISTIANS once and for all. TO better understand all I am saying, go to this link: http://www.rense.com/general66/rosen.htm
The GUILLOTINES and the NOAHIDE LAWS are no secret to these Jews, either. The communist/NWO Jews in high positions of power, along with their Gentile counterparts, are directly responsible for the guillotines now in many of our US military bases, and our men being trained in secret in how to operate them on Christian resistance in the future UNDER MARTIAL LAW.
As tragic as all this is, I am compelled to tell my fellow Americans the truth in this matter. Yes, God has given me a Divine love to reach out to the Jews with His Son, the Messiah. I have done so for years. But I also love my fellow Christians and freedom loving Americans, and the truth is too terrible to be hidden any longer. I join with the faithful crew of independent journalists who dare to expose this dark truth to America in this hour. And I WILL join with those Christians worldwide who suffered terrible tortures and martyrdom for their faith in Jesus Christ in daring to stand against this beast called COMMUNISM or the world religion of the ANTICHRIST.
Having worked with Russian Christians under communism, I know what they suffered for their faith under COMMUNISM. Brutal torture and death and martyrdom and suffering and exile and imprisonment. And women were not spared either. I am certain I will not be spared, and am telling you the truth before I am called by God to suffer and die for my Christian faith and journalism in the future.
I EXHORT YOU, my fellow Christians: REMAIN FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH when all this comes upon AMERICA!
NEVER RETREAT in the face of these communist murderers who come to DESTROY YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH! And there are many more besides communist Jews who support this NWO agenda.
I exhort you, my fellow American Patriots: NEVER RETREAT in the face of these ruthless NWO murderers, who come to destroy your precious liberties, to seize your family, your lands and possessions and take you to their MODERN GULAGS in the boxcars and shackles to be killed and Freedom Lovers and our CONSTITUTION!
REMEMBER! There has NEVER been a battle won, BY COWARDS or those who retreated in the face of fear or danger!
There has never been a Christian who OVERCAME to become victorious, who did not deny themselves and remain faithful unto the END!
NEVER DENY YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST when these haters of Christianity and Jesus Christ drag you before their modern guillotines and threaten to behead you if you will NOT renounce your faith to join their NEW WORLD ORDER and become communists!
Truly, the hour is so very close for America to fall under the iron fist of the NEW WORLD ORDER and the communist agenda for our nation. Are YOU prepared?
Here is only one of many articles I am going to publish on this urgent subject to enlighten you.
Also go to this excellent link:
And please note: historical FACT and related truths can never be described as
ANTI-SEMITISM, any more than exposing sin in the churches in America today can be called ANTICHRIST. Exposing corruption is what these reports are all about, and never does corruption deserved to be protected!
Israeli Christians Worship Under Armed Guard By Rev. Ted Pike
Israeli free-speaking newspaper
In October, a Jerusalem church used by messianic believers was mysteriously torched. A messianic teen was critically injured by explosion of a package bomb in his face; police believe ultra-Orthodox terrorists were responsible. Angry orthodox Jews publicly burned hundreds of New Testaments. (See
Official persecution of Christians is sharply on the rise in Israel. Ha'aretz says, "Calev Myers, a lawyer who represents messianic Jews, said he has fought 200 legal cases in the past two years. Most involve authorities' attempt to close down houses of worship, revoke the citizenship of believers or refuse to register their children as Israelis In incidents of violence [against Christians], police are reluctant to press charges."
The government of Israel maintains a hands-off policy. It contends that Christians who witness and are persecuted deserve it. The government is just as anti-Christian as local magistrates. Israel continues to attempt to deport a German Christian student for the alleged "crime" of witnessing. (See
History of Persecution
As every Bible student knows, Jewish leaders did not welcome the emergence of Christianity in the first century. The Pharisee Saul of Tarsus led ruthless and homicidal persecution of the infant church until his miraculous conversion to Christianity. The Book of Acts recounts several dozen instances of violent persecution of Christians throughout Israel and the Mediterranean. Such Jewish hatred may have continued under Nero, a convert to Judaism.(1) Perhaps the greatest authority on ancient Rome, Edward Gibbon, asserts that Nero's zealously Jewish wife, the beautiful Poppaea Sabina (ancestor of one of the most renowned sages of the Talmud, Rabbi Meir)(2), almost certainly incited Nero to blame a relatively unknown sect, the Christians, for the burning of Rome.(3) In that persecution, countless Christians (including most of the apostles) were martyred.
Yet, unable to destroy Christianity physically, anti-Christian Jews attempted to destroy it spiritually.
The Jewish Encyclopedia says some early church fathers said all heresies of the time began with Jews (4) who wanted to poison Christian teachings. The Encyclopedia flatly states that Jews inspired gnosticism-the most destructive heresy in Christian theology. Gnosticism's bad premises have negatively influenced both Augustinian Catholicism and Calvinist Protestantism to the present. (5)
Circumstances (and God's grace) restricted the first-century Sanhedrin from persecuting the church into extinction. Yet the Talmud and Zohar-most sacred texts for observant Jews-burn with hope of someday renewing violent persecution against Christians as "idol worshipers." These rabbinic scriptures teach that the coming Judaic one-world order will uphold Hebrew monotheism with zero tolerance toward those who believe in a "polytheist, three-in-one God," Christians. (See
New Power to Persecute
The power to persecute Christianity has largely returned to Judaism through Jewish control of big media and "hate crime" laws. Jewish supremacists are encouraged as never before that they might finish what their forefathers began in the Book of Acts (See
Meanwhile, evangelical Christians remain in denial. In view of rising anti-Christianity in Israel, Christian leaders and media are silent. Unbiblically, they refuse to find fault with a nation and religion they believe God forbids them to criticize. Evangelical leaders hope that somehow the increasing anti-Christianity coming from orthodox activism in Israel will subside as a result of even more palavering of Christian "love" and "blessing." They have no solution for rising Jewish anti-Christian activism and media corruption in the western world.
This threat to Christian civilization will not go away unless Christians face these threats head on and protest. To turn the other cheek does not mean to be silent before evil.
Testing Christian Limits
Evil Jewish leadership, from Israel to America, is testing Christians to see how much abuse they will take. Hitler and Mussolini tested the West in 1939 with preliminary wars of aggression in Spain and Ethiopia. In the same way, militant Jewish activists use hate crime prosecutions (such as conviction of Rev. Stephen Boissoin in Canada) to lay groundwork for worldwide persecution of Christians.
So far, Jewish supremacists must be delighted in how evangelicals continue to cooperate, even as such Jews undermine our Christian civilization.
At the turn of the 20th century, a holocaust of anti-Christian persecution erupted from Jewish-inspired communism in Russia. Tens of millions of Christians in Russia and, later, China, southeast Asia and Cuba died. (See
Today, a malignant trickle of persecution insidiously proceeds from Zion, spreading across the world landscape. It still could be dried up if Christians identify its leaders as Jewish and expose them to the withering heat of public displeasure.
That is not happening. The source from which it emanates is sacrosanct to Christians and allowed to flow unobstructed. With such spectacular complicity from most Christian leaders, there is little to restrain even more aggressive anti-Christianity.
Scripture says full-blown persecution will eventually break forth over the whole earth as the great harlot, international Jewish control, devastates the church. (See
Israel, the first to spiritually marry her divine husband, Christ, apostasized and became the mother of spiritual whoredom; she killed Him. Ever since, she has sought another husband, Anti-Christ, who will give her world dominion and take away her shame.
Initially, the great harlot will undoubtedly use her hate crimes laws to imprison evangelical "anti-Semites."(See
How is a juggernaut of persecution this ominous empowered to worldwide dominion?
By the eerie silence of the Christian world right now!
1. "Nero," Jewish Encyclopedia, page 88.
2. Ibid. This article says that, according to the Talmud, Nero converted to Judaism and Rabbi Meir descended from him.
3. Gibbon, Edward, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, volume I, page 459, Modern Library, New York. Gibbon says the Jews bitterly resented Roman dominion of Palestine and had a much stronger motive to burn Rome than did Christians. "But the Jews possessed very powerful advocates in the palace, and even in the heart of the Tyrant; his wife and mistress, the beautiful Poppaea, and a favorite player of the race of Abraham, who had already enjoyed his intercessions in behalf of the obnoxious people."
4. "Gnosticism," Jewish Encyclopedia, page 681. This article says, "It is a noteworthy fact that heads of gnostic schools and founders of gnostic systems are designated as Jews by church fathers. Some derive all heresies, including those of Gnosticism, from Judaism." "...the principal elements of Gnosticism were derived from Jewish speculation" "since the second century B.C. gnostic thought was bound up with Judaism, which had accepted Babylonian and Syrian doctrines."

By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical perspective-
Of course I know! I have known the truth about "PAGAN-SOLSTICE/COMMERCIAL 'CHRISTMAS'"for years. The pagan/Druid/pre-Christian era origins of how it is celebrated commercially and solstice, etc.
But NOTE-God is happy whenever and wherever HIS SON is glorified and salvation promoted through Him. There is a reason WHY God has allowed Christians worldwide to seek to remember and honor the birth of His Son at the darkest time of the year. It is to celebrate THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD coming into this dark world, at the world's darkest hour of winter solstice. What an empty time of the year winter solstice would be, if there were no remembrance of Jesus Christ come into the world at this dark time, spiritually and physically.
I am NOT talking about celebrating with pagan trees, or the YULE log (yech!) or singing pagan songs like "DECK THE HALLS," etc. ( I will neither play nor sing DECK the Halls, with it's emphasis on YULE celebration.)Nor am I talking about "COMMERCIAL CHRISTMAS" with the pressure on to BUY-BUY-BUY and spend all your money on things. Nor am I talking about "CHRISTMAS RADIO" where the non-stop songs are non-Christian centered, orientated on getting people to spend money by both travel and gifts, etc.
I especially HATE that pagan creation of "SANTA CLAUS!" While historically, Saint Nicholas (with the name now shortened to "Saint Nick or Santa Claus) was indeed a kind and benevolent Christian figure of the past, he has now been shortened to "Santa Claus" who steals all the glory and attention from the Lord Jesus Christ at this time of the year.
Children are made to believe in A LIE when they are taught to believe in SANTA CLAUS! Their focus and attention is placed on a mythical creation of communist/commercial minds, through radio and television and the shopping malls.How terrible that a non-existent creature is elevated to the level of ALL KNOWING GOD (knowing who is naughty or nice and who sees everyone) and who comes to bring gifts to millions of people simultaneously. What a terrible commercialized/communist godless substitute for the SON OF GOD supposedly to be honored on this day!
Children and all mankind should be focused on JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD on the day supposedly dedicated to honoring HIS COMING INTO THE WORLD!
The communists do this. They substitute FATHER CHRISTMAS or "Father winter" in place of Jesus Christ, and make it totally commercialized and godless. And the commercial communists do the same thing here in America today...all to take a buck and take away FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST as well.
Christmas choirs and Christ-based Christmas performances with altar calls for salvation (we had one here in this area) honoring the SON OF GOD coming into this dark world IS acceptable to Him. God has shown me this after becoming strictly against ANY form of Christ celebration at this time. God will use that which is of HIM and His Son for His glory. And I pray against ALL THE REST!

Standing Firm for Jesus Christ in This Hour
I just received an email regarding Canadian troops to be sent to America, and our troops to be sent to Canada, as an exchange of services concerning anticipated coming rioting in both nations. The rioting seemed to be over food shortages. It will of course lead to martial law or be a part of it. I have long warned my readers of coming food crises. Do YOU have YOUR emergency food supplies in stock in this hour?
Choose to stand FIRM in Jesus Christ in this and every hour we face in America and Canada at this time. He has promised and He WILL supply all our needs indeed. But never forget that faith without works is dead as well. We must work WITH Him in this in practical ways.
WHEN martial law is declared, remember to stand firm in Jesus Christ. We are called to hate our lives in this world, to lay them down for the Word of God and His truth. We are called to FAITHFULNESS UNTO DEATH at all times.
You may live to see the day of the modern guillotines manifested according to the prophetic word of God (and they are coming sooner then you think). The Noahide laws have been signed into legislation, to be activated under martial law. Christians can and will be beheaded under the Noahide laws. The guillotines are in military bases nationwide, with men being trained to operate them continually. You will be tempted in that hour to deny Jesus Christ and your Christian faith to join the NWO agenda. DON'T DO IT. To do so will bring eternal damnation to your soul. Review Bible Scriptures regarding faithfulness unto death, and confessing Jesus Christ before men. Your eternal soul is at stake.

Much thanks to LISA from the UK for her kind gift at this time. It was so appreciated! Also thank you PETE EWING for your gift, and a third person who send a kind donation ($20) but whose envelope I lost with the name and return address. In fact, I lost all THREE of the above envelopes somehow over the Christmas season. I always send thank you cards to the senders, but cannot do so until you send me an email with your return addresses. Please send me your emails today if you want correspondence from me.
GOD BLESS YOU for your kindness at this critical time with my brother John. Continue in your prayers for him.
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
What are my thoughts? That God has his life, and the time of his departure to be with Jesus Christ, in His hands fully. My brother received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior several years ago. In his physically weakened state, he could never deal with the coming horrors of martial law and what our nation soon is to face someday. I recognize that if God decides to take him, it is because of His infinite mercy on my brother's behalf. I rest in the perfect will of God for my beloved brother John.
Please continue your prayers on his behalf. Thank you.

And for satanists and the Illuminati, it is a grim time of yet more HUMAN SACRIFICES to Satan/Lucifer. And the increasing demand for MORE sacrifices, means more innocent victims abducted, bred, obtained through fake adoption agencies, even children seized through DSS to secretly be turned over to covens for sacrifice later, and more.
These innocent victims then suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of these ruthless servants of Satan in their SOLSTICE rituals, to be raped, tortured, crucified and ultimately murdered and cannibalized. Tiny infants are not even spared such horrors. And an often complicit news media will NEVER tell America the full truth about grim statistics in this matter.
This is a time for increased intercessory prayers and fasting, with concern and compassion on behalf of all intended victims: those victims who have already been tragically abducted and are being held for sacrifice, and those future victims who they are yet stalking to sacrifice on Solstice.
In my years of battling satanism in this nation, I have witnessed the power and glory of God in His divinely intervening on behalf of others endangered, through fasting and prayer in the power of the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Your prayers and compassion, coupled by faith in the Living God and His Son Jesus Christ, can make a great difference this season, and always. PRAY!

Throughout my many years of ministry in various regions and to various people groups, one of the most fascinating was working among the Russian Jews. After training for a year in the Slavic Gospel Association's "Institute for Slavic Studies" in Wheaton, IL, I enjoyed participating in a wonderful program by Russian Baptists, to provide a free summer for Russian/Ukrainian children at their wonderful camp retreat in Connecticut, a few hours outside of New York City.
NYC is home to many Russians and Ukrainians and a large Russian/Ukrainian Jewish community as well. Russian parents were always happy to find a way to get their children out of the Big Apple for the summer, to enjoy life in the countryside in a happy summer camp. Our summer program for children was exciting and attracted many Russian/Ukrainian families, including over one hundred Russian Jewish children every summer.
Usually, their parents would instruct their children before coming to camp: "Sasha...Boris...GO to camp! Eat, drink, have ice cream and good time! JUST DON'T LEARN ABOUT JESUS!"
But who can stop the power of the Holy Spirit from revealing God's Son to precious children? The children WOULD learn about Jesus their Messiah while at the camp! Many would choose to spend all their ice cream money on a Bible instead of ice cream. And, as Yana did, many would experience encounters with the Living God and their Messiah Jesus that would change their lives forever.
I will never forget their names: Sasha, Lyuba, Nastya, Sveta, Olga, Vera, and many more. Their smiles and humor filled me with joy every summer, with their distinctly Slavic features that Americans often find intriguing and beautiful. I was in charge of 15 young Slavic children every summer, approximately 5 years old. They were smart, mischievous and filled with laughter. How they loved to play jokes on me!
Being an overnight camp and long term over the summer, I soon became "Big Momma" to these precious children. And when the thunderstorms broke over our camp late at night, I often found myself surrounded with little children crying, wanting to crawl into bed with me in the cabins for fear of the terrible lightening mixed with thunder overhead.
Never mind that these were narrow camp bunk beds! I found myself forced to hang precariously over the edge to accommodate several frightened little angels, crying and wanting "Momma!" But I loved working at this retreat for many summers. The Russian Jewish children and their families were very special indeed.
I will never forget one episode with these children one summer. Yana Strutin was a young Russian Jewish teen in another dormitory at the retreat. She suffered from a painful leg condition that often brought tears to her eyes and much suffering. One night, she woke up her whole dorm with her screams of pain. Her counselors finally came running up to our primary children's cabin.
"Miss Pam...please come down to our cabin and pray for Yana! She is screaming and in pain. We know you believe in God healing people...come and pray for her!" I threw on my clothes and ran down to their dorm, scrambling to not collide with a tree in the dark night.
Dozens of teens were now awake in that dorm and watching the situation unfold as Yana sobbed in pain. I scooped up Yana in my arms, held her in my lap and began to pray. All the girls were silent now as they watched, wondering what would happen. Would God answer our prayers for Yana to be freed from pain?
The prayers continued. Suddenly, something strange happened. Yana began to laugh, through tears! Her words amazed us! Yana was having an "open vision!"
"WHY...? WHY do I see JESUS? WHY do I see Him on a cross dying for ME???" None of us saw anything, only Yana. As Yana continued to watch Jesus in her vision, she then said,
"The PAIN! The pain...it is GONE! GONE! My leg DOES NOT HURT now! Jesus healed me!" The other Christian counselors and I began to realize that we had just witnessed a modern miracle. Jesus Christ has graciously reached down in response to our prayers, and had revealed Himself and His love and power to little Yana personally.
The Bible says in Isaiah, "But He was wounded for our transgression, He was bruised for our iniquities, the punishment that brought our peace was laid upon Him, and BY HIS STRIPES (the beating He suffered for our sins) WE ARE HEALED!" As Yana gazed in this vision at the Lamb of God who suffered for us that we might receive salvation and be healed as well, SHE WAS MADE WELL.
We all began to praise and thank God for this miracle, counselors and young teens alike. Yana was laughing by now. God had visited His people once again, by His Holy Spirit and the power of the Messiah and Savior of the world, Yahshua/Jesus the Messiah.
As I held this precious Jewish child in my arms, continuing to pray, I began to think about how many years ago another woman had held her Jewish child in her arms, filled with wonder and awe at the power of the Living God.
For in her arms, she held the Light of the World, Jesus the Messiah and Savior of the WORLD! He was predestined from the foundations of the world to be the LAMB OF GOD, to bear the sins and sufferings and punishment of a world estranged from God because of sin, and to fulfill every prophecy ever given by the Jewish prophets of old regarding THEIR COMING MESSIAH.
Having experienced the Divine love the Holy Spirit filled me with, as I held these Russian Jewish children in my arms, summer after summer, I often wondered about the incredible love that Mary (Miriam) must have felt, quickened by the Holy Spirit, as she held her Jewish child in her arms...the very Son of God and personification of God's Love to the world embodied in Divine flesh.
And this Jewish Child was destined to change this fallen world...forever.
At this time of the year when many are celebrating the coming of the Light of the World unto us, Jesus the Christ and only Messiah the Jews will ever know, won't you also open your heart to this wonderful healing and saving Son of God and receive HIS gift to YOU, that of ETERNAL LIFE and forgiveness of your sins?
The true celebration of the Son of God and Promised Messiah coming into this dark world has nothing to do with what has evolved into "commercialized Christmas." It is not about trees that die, gaudy tinsel, gifts that can break and are soon forgotten to gather dust. It is all about SALVATION and GOD'S GIFT TO MANKIND! God's eternal gift is far greater!
IF YOU need love and compassion, healing for body and mind, answers to prayer and peace in your life today, the promised Prince of Peace is prepared to reach into your life and to bring the miracles you need in your life today. And the gift of God is FREE to all who ask!
With America facing such an uncertain future, and much heartache and tribulations to come that I have faithfully outlined in my reporting for 13 years now, isn't it time to ensure that YOUR future is secure in HIS arms of grace and protection and mercy throughout the times to come?
"You need not fear what the future holds, when you know HIM Who holds your future!"
People often ask me, "Pam, aren't you afraid of what can happen to you with your work...???" I look at them and frankly tell them that God has finally brought me BEYOND the state of fear, into a state of GRACE and FAITH INSTEAD. Once, I was struggling with fear: fear of what I was uncovering to come to this nation, fear of coming persecution of the Christians, fear of threats and attacks on my life, fear of famine, etc.
But I soon realized that FEAR is counterproductive to our lives and the exact opposite of FAITH. We must realize as Christians, that our lives will either be controlled by FEAR, or by FAITH. This is why Jesus said repeatedly, "FEAR NOT...for I Am with you."
I understand all too well the kind of price I may pay for my uncompromising Christian witness and my reporting to warn my fellow Americans. I am neither stupid nor uninformed nor naive. But God calls His people to RISE ABOVE THE FEAR, to OVERCOME and to achieve everything He calls us to accomplish for His glory in today's world! And this is accomplished by FAITH!
I can honestly say that through much prayer, God has taken away ALL fear from my life, and enabled me to walk out every day BY FAITH. Knowing what I face, I yet have peace within, because of His grace. And if I suffer and die for my testimony, so be it. Suffering and martyrdom and overcoming for the sake of the Gospel is the ongoing legacy of two thousand years of Christianity in the world. It is nothing new. I am proud of Jesus Christ and His testimony to the world! If needs be, I will die proclaiming His testimony to mankind. I refuse to compromise the call of God on my life. And my Bible tells me, "HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT to face ALL things.
"And THIS is the VICTORY THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD, even our FAITH." And that faith MUST be based on the eternal Word of God and in Jesus Christ, our only hope of salvation and overcoming the world.
If you are troubled by fear, by suffering and heartache and loss, REACH UP through faith and prayer for your miracle of God's Divine grace and comfort and help today. You will never be disappointed when you act on God's eternal promises and choose to live in the realms of MIGHTY FAITH instead of FEAR!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Please continue to pray for John in Tulsa, OK. I have been encouraged to wait for the right timing to come to Tulsa to visit him (when he can respond to me), and will be working with a social worker, should he overcome and survive this crisis, to help obtain special living circumstances for him, and to help take care of him for the rest of his life if necessary. In order to support my many ministries in the past financially, I have been a home health care provider between various outreaches, and hope to provide care for my brother as God opens doors and makes provision for his life.
Continue to pray for our nation. Nothing has changed for the agenda of the NWO for America, and we are slowly being moved in the direction of the coming police state. Only the grace of God through the prayers and intercessions of many has held back this darkness thus far. Your prayers and faith are needed!
Thank you for your love and prayers at this time and always.-Pamela Schuffert
UPDATE-Saturday, Dec. 12, 2009-4:38 EST- John's doctor in charge of his case left word that he is STABLE, and they are going to attempt to get him off the assisted breathing equipment soon. YOUR PRAYERS ARE BEING ANSWERED! KEEP IT UP! And THANK YOU, all my readers!-Pamela Schuffert
UPDATE-Friday, Dec. 11, 2009-4:05 PM, EST-I just called St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, OK, and talked to the nurse who oversees my brother's room. She admitted that his chances of recovery are very slim, in his very poor state. "Of course, there is always hope...." she added. I agree! But I also know that God is sovereign and His purposes and ways are perfect. I will rejoice in the Lord, whether my brother is given the grace to recover and serve God on earth, or whether he is taken home for the glory of God. Either way, whether in LIFE or in DEATH, Christians are ALWAYS VICTORIOUS through Christ Jesus!
Either way, however, I must go to visit him in Tulsa. Your prayers and support are critically needed at this time. Thankyou.-Pamela Schuffert
URGENT-YOUR PRAYERS ARE NEEDED!
Only a few minutes ago today, Friday morning, December 11, I opened this email from my former webmaster for AMERICAN HOLOCAUST, Ron in Tulsa, OK. My heart was crushed by the following words:
MY BROTHER JOHN IS NOW IN A COMA!
I have been praying non-stop for my brother John, who came out of 30 years of living in the world of sin and drugs, to finally become a born-again Christian who played guitar for church services regularly, although in a wheelchair. My former webmaster, Ron, would take John to church services so he could play the guitar for the glory of God. John has a powerful testimony of how Jesus Christ set him free fron over 30 years in the dark world of drugs and rock music and the lifestyle of "drugs, sex and rock n' roll."
ONLY the power of the Living God through His Son Jesus Christ, plus prayer from his mother and I for those many years, kept him from being killed or becoming one more statistic of those who die from living this kind of deadly lifestyle.
Years of his living in the world of parties and drugs and alcohol brought his body into great sickness, to the point of being placed in a public assistance nursing home in Tulsa, OK. But through this suffering, he finally gave his life to Jesus Christ, and has loved and served Him ever since.
Sadly, no one took the time to contact me from the public assistance nursing home to tell me my brother has been ill with double pneumonia and is NOW IN A COMA! Thank God for my former webmaster, Ron, who just sent me this email. Read the following email from Ron:
Today - Thursday Dec 10, Diane and I were heading downtown to The Tulsa Violin Shop and as I was on Denver Street near 6th Street, the thought came into my mind to drop by and see how John was doing at The Day Center. When we got there and paged him to the front, a person named John Dugan came to the front desk and advised me that John had been rushed to St. Francis Hospital earlier in the week and had double pneumonia and was in a coma.
Diane and I went to St. Francis hospital to see him and he is in the Intensive Care Unit on the 4th floor and on a breathing machine. He was unconscious when I went to his bedside and spoke healing to him and prayed for him. I don't know whether I am the first one to tell you of his condition or not, and I really prayed for him and let him know he was loved and not forgotten.
I hope you are well........... John is in room 4508. I don't know the phone number and he is surely in no condition at this time to talk to anyone. I plan on checking back with him and hopefully in next few days to a week.
I remain his only surviving relative. It is urgent that I go to Tulsa to visit him, and if necessary to take care of potential funeral arrangements, etc. Those of you following my blog know that I remain in great financial need, having even donating what I recently received while playing my accordion to a homeless woman in crisis, as God directed me to. I have no vehicle (it died a few months ago and had to be towed away, as I explained to readers previously.)I have no funds for travel to speak of.
IF God leads you, I would deeply appreciate ANY support for emergency finances for travel to get to Tulsa ASAP. I am now going to call the hospital and check on his status after I post this.
You can sent (even overnight) all emergency finances to: Pamela Schuffert, C/O Rev. Kenneth Foreman, PO Box 488, Montreat, NC, 28757. Make all checks out to Rev. Foreman, who then turns over all donations to me, since I do not belong to any bank. You can wire emergency funds to to me via Black Mountain , NC.
I will keep you posted as soon as I find out more about my precious brother's status at the hospital.
PLEASE PRAY FOR MY BROTHER JOHN! And please pray for me for grace to deal with this tragic situation, in Jesus' Name.
God bless you all this season,
Thursday, December 10, 2009
By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-
I am still praising God for what just happened the other day.
When I prayed about what I could do to glorify His Son, Jesus Christ, this season, He told me, "JUST USE THE TALENTS I HAVE GIVEN YOU." And so, people in this mountain town now see me daily coming out with my accordion to play Christ-centered Christmas music on the streets. As I play songs that glorify the Savior of the world on the streets, no one knows that I am praying in my heart for each person who walks by!
I have frankly been amazed at the number of people who stop to tell me what a blessing the music on the streets has been to them. Thank you, Jesus.
God also inspired me to make "Blessing Baskets" for elderly and infirmed, using my arts and crafts skills developed over the years. Visiting thrift stores and Good Will, I have been obtaining inexpensive baskets, and then transforming them into works of art, decorating with local mountain pine cones and other greenery. I will be filling them with my own organic Gingerbread cookies and other quality baked goods I will make, and then placing in each one appropriate Scripture verses with calligraphy, to minster to each person's individual needs.
But here is SOMETHING AMAZING that just happened! While playing my accordion, I place a basket next to me for donations for my projects for others this season. The other day, as I prayed about what God wanted me to do, the Holy Spirit impressed to do something totally unplanned. He told me that every cent people gave me was to go to help a homeless person in need. I had no idea who that person was.
But, I went to a computer and printed up a sign that said that day, "All donations go to help homeless." I taped it to my basket and then enjoyed playing my accordion on the streets for several hours. At the end, I looked into the basket. WOW! I counted the money. Approximately $50 in several hours! This never happens.
While my financial needs are great, I also fear God. He led me to do this, and He made provision now to give to the unknown homeless person. I do not touch money that belongs TO HIM. And so I prayed, "Father, show me who whom this money is to go."
As I continued to pray, wondering, He brought to my remembrance a Christian woman I had met at my friend's restaurant in town earlier that week. She had two children, and was forced to move to a shelter with them recently. The Holy Spirit told me it was for her. I said, "But Lord, I don't even know how to get in touch with her!" He then said he would bring her to me. Hmmm!
And so, I continued with my day. Going to a local store to buy some forgotten food items for my friend's restaurant, I realized I would need a ride back to her restaurant to bring them to her. She said, "Don't worry: I will send someone to pick you up." And so I waited.
Imagine my amazement, when the person sent to pick me up was THE VERY WOMAN GOD TOLD ME THE DONATIONS WERE FOR THAT DAY! Marveling at the power of God to bring about His purposes, I began to tell her about this strange miracle.
You should have seen the look of gratitude and rejoicing on Angie's face as I shared this with her and then handed her the money. However, I stressed one important thing.
"You will NOT thank me nor give me any credit: all the glory goes to God. He shares HIS glory with NO ONE. HE inspired this, HE moved people to donate, and HE gave me the vision of YOU! Give HIM the glory...because I had nothing to do with this miracle of His grace..." Angie understood and immediately began to praise God.
When God uses us for His purposes, it is so important to give Him the glory. When we do things for self-glory or men's acclaim, it becomes meaningless. The Bible says that God will not reward it, for God judges the motives of our hearts. But whenever we are moved to do things for HIS glory and act out of a pure heart, then God is glorified in our service to Him and others. And, others are blessed as well.
I encourage all of you to seek God for how He desires to use YOU for HIS GLORY, both now and throughout the rest of your lives. We live in a world surrounded with hurting individuals that need HIS love and mercies manifested through YOU! If God cannot work through His people, then WHO can He work through to show His love to a perishing world filled with sorrow and tragedy?
And always remember: it is more blessed to GIVE, than to receive, declared Jesus Christ. Yes, even in the midst of poverty and recession and great financial needs that many of us may be experiencing even now, God will always enable His people to fill the world around us with HIS love and mercies and compassion on others.
In the midst of my own personal crises and needs, God showed me how I could nevertheless become a blessing in His name to others. When you are a true disciple of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, you will NEVER be truly "poor!" Jesus said in REVELATION to one group of suffering saints, "I know thy poverty, BUT THOU ART RICH!" I am walking in Divine spiritual riches of His love, and mercy and grace, that the world cannot know apart from Him. Such riches are immeasurable: they cannot be counted as money is.
As true disciples of Jesus Christ, we must choose to comprehend what TRUE RICHES are in the sight of God's Word. The world's definition of "rich" is NEVER God's definition from an eternal perspective!
Let us take the time to share His eternal riches of His mercy, His salvation, His love and compassion with those around us. You will never run out of His eternal provisions!
