Breaking Israel News: “Terror plagued German streets yet again on Sunday as two separate attacks were carried out by as many Syrian refugees killing one native and injuring at least 14 others.

An explosion shook the city of Ansbach on Sunday night when a 27-year-old Syrian detonated an explosive device at a wine bar, Sky News reported, wounding 12 people, three seriously. According to initial reports, the blast had been caused by a gas leak, but Bavaria’s interior ministry later denied the claim, saying that the explosion was intentional.

The attacker, who had previously been denied asylum in Germany and was on the verge of being deported to Bulgaria, was killed in the blast.

It was later reported that the bomber left behind a video which he recorded on his cell phone in which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS).”

Opinion: On September 20, 2015 Hillary Clinton said this:

“We’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I think the United States has to do more,”the former secretary of state said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”

  • That the FBI has made it clear that vetting Syrian refugees is not possible, has absolutely no effect on progressive ideology.
  • That Germany and the EU countries are experiencing an upswing in bloodshed, rape and assault will absolutely not change the minds of either Angela Merkel or Hillary Clinton.
  • That the people are living in fear over unrestrained/unvetted immigration is the hidden agenda.

Fear ultimately gives way to authoritarian government which trumps (pun intended) personal freedom. Notice how the idea of the NSA monitoring phone conversations or police arrests without hard evidence of terror activities have been dropped from the national conversation.

Authoritarian governments are by necessity headed by a dictator.

Because it is time.

YNet News: “French media reported that one hostage had been killed after two men armed with blades took several people hostage in a church in France’s northern Normandy region on Tuesday.

The victim who was killed was a priest according to a source in the police who spoke to Reuters. The source said that the attackers yelled “for ISIS” as they slit the priest’s throat.

Police and elite forces surrounded the church in a suburb of Rouen, the capital of the Normandy region and eventually managed to kill the two assaliants.”

Opinion: Details to follow as they come in …

  • Priest, Father Jacques Hamel, 86, was ‘beheaded’ by two ISIS knifemen shouting ‘Daesh’ 
  • Terrorists took nuns and worshippers hostage at French church
  • Police shoot both attackers dead then search for bombs
  • ISIS claims responsibility
  • One attacker lived locally and had electronic tag having been jailed in France for trying to travel to Syria in 2015
  • The church was one of a number of Catholic churches on a terrorist ‘hit list’ found on a suspected ISIS extremist last April

Christianity Today: “Tim LaHaye, the best-selling author best known for the Left Behind series, “graduated to heaven” early this morning after suffering a stroke at age 90.

His family announced the news of his passing at a San Diego hospital on his ministry Facebook page.

Opinion: It was 1995 when “Left Behind” was published. I was on the road to becoming a Christian but really had no idea what that meant. I had been curious about Bible prophecy since Hal Lindsey’s Late Great Planet Earth and when I head about Tim LaHaye’s book I could not wait to read it.

The book captured my imagination. I waited for each new book in the series with great anticipation for the next few years, but it would not take root until October 2000 on a flight from Dallas to San Diego.

It was a few years before that time that my wife started attending BSF classes and before long announced to me that she had become born again.

Having spent most of my life in a denomination that required all kinds of works to attain salvation, I had no idea what that meant. But I thought that if she did not stop these classes it might take a toll on our marriage.

It didn’t take long for me to realize she was not going to stop Bible study and since we had two little boys, 5 and 3, it occurred to me I better find out what it was she was learning.

I started to read the New Testament on my own. No matter how hard I tried I still could not grasp how a person could be born again if that person kept on sinning.

On that flight to California, a fellow in a tweed sport coat sat next to me. I had a Bible on my lap and was planning to try to figure out this born again thing when the guy in the sport coat, who I had been trying to ignore, kept talking to me.

By the time we took off we were on a first name basis. He asked me what I did for a living, after telling him I was on my way to a Wall Street business conference, I asked him what he did.

He told me he was a professor at the Southern Baptist Seminary. With that I lifted the Bible from my lap, and told him my dilemma.

For the next three hours we looked at passages from Acts, Romans, and Ephesians, as the legalism that had bogged me down for all those years disintegrated.

By the time the last book of the Left Behind series was out in 2005, I was blessed to find another mentor in Jack Kinsella’s Omega Letter Fellowship, that lasted until his death in 2013.

God is good.

If you have signed up for Jack Kelly’s daily emails (www.gracethrufaith.com) you have this in yesterday’s inbox. In this post Jack clarifies the answer to the question of how the Church is grafted in but remains separate from Israel.

Q. I understand your view on replacement theology and how we have not displaced Israel as God’s people. Through your post on “The Great Pause” I’ve seen how God has only paused His time line for Israel. In accordance with Romans 11:17, my church teaches that we are grafted into Israel. What exactly does that mean? To what extent? Are God’s promises for Israel for us too? Should we be observing Jewish feast days or is the church totally separate from Israel?

A. This “grafting in” as Paul called it takes place through the Lord Jesus. He explained this in Galatians 3:26-29, and Ephesians 2:11-22.

It’s not that the Church has become Israel, it’s that through the Lord, Jew and Gentile have become the Church.

Both the natural branches and the grafted in branches receive nourishment from the same root, which is Christ. The Church doesn’t need to try to be separate from Israel, the Church is by definition separate from Israel.

Paul made this clear in Romans 11:25-27 when he said Israel has been hardened in part until the full number of gentiles has come in. He was talking about the Church being raptured. After that Israel will be saved. He was saying the same thing he heard James say in Acts 15:13-18. Israel and the Church are distinct and separate entities and God deals with them as such.

Whether you observe the Jewish feast days or not is up to you, as long as you understand you’re not required to do so.

In Colossians 2:16 Paul said not to let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration, or a Sabbath day.

And in Romans 14:5 he said, “One man considers one day more sacred than another, another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.”

The Washington Times: “Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers.

John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.

“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget.”

Opinion: The right-wing pundits are almost right. They tell us that Hillary’s presidency is an Obama 3rd term. But it appears that Obama’s presidency was a warm up to the main event.

The hacked email scandal obviously means that the primaries were staged. That the DNC knew all along that the Justice Department and the FBI were not going to indict, meaning that corruption reached all the way to the top.

And according to Wikileaks, there are many more emails to come.

If Hillary gets the 2-3 Supreme Court picks that she will likely get, and if she picks relatively young justices, the court will be lost for a generation.

And so will the Constitution.
