Ezekiel 34: 20-22

“As for you, My flock, thus says Adonai Yahweh, ‘Behold, I will judge between one sheep and another, between the rams and the male goats. Is it too slight a thing for you that you should feed in the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pastures? Or that you should drink of the clear waters, that you must foul the rest with your feet? As for My flock, they must eat what you tread down with your feet and drink what you foul with your feet!’”


His Name is Yahweh explains why the Name of God, Yahweh, is so important.  It’s available in eBook format and in paperback.

  • God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘Yahweh, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This [Yahweh] is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” (Exodus 3: 15)
  • “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 16: 21)
  • “Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His name by which He will be called, ‘Yahweh our righteousness.’” (Jeremiah 23: 5-6)

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik: Two Palestinian goals at UN: Have all disputed land declared ‘occupied’ and have terrorists declared legitimate freedom fighters—The Palestinian Authority wishes to achieve a number of political gains by having the UN vote today, recognizing “Palestine” as a non-member observer state. First, all lands that are disputed and whose future must be negotiated according to the Oslo Accords, the PA wants declared Palestinian “occupied territory.” Second, they claim that UN recognition would change the status of Palestinian terrorists in Israeli prisons to legitimate freedom fighters and prisoners of war.

Ruthie Blum:  Abbas’ jihadist UN bid— He didn’t even bother camouflaging his hate-speech for Western ears — a practice at which all Arab leaders perceived as “moderates” excel.

Gonen Ginat: The same old refrain— All the networks repeated the same mantra: Likud has become an extreme rightist party. But the polls showed that Israelis, having heard about this “extreme right” turn, were rushing to support it.

Dror Eydar: The biggest lie— Abbas stood before the U.N. on Thursday playing the part of a Jew after the Holocaust.

Dan Margalit: No celebration in Jerusalem— Israel’s diplomats have fallen asleep at the wheel.

Dore Gold: New states are not created in the UN— States come into existence when their leaders issue a declaration of independence and they are subsequently recognized by other states.

Prof. Asher Cohen: Have Israelis moved to the Right?— When the Likud moves rightward, it reflects the wishes of a majority of Israeli voters.

Jonathan Tobin: Palestinian UN Bid Not About Peace—With the Palestinian Authority all but certain to have its status at the United Nations upgraded this evening to nonmember observer state, some who call themselves friends of Israel as well as some prominent Israelis are applauding the initiative. In particular, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said he does not oppose the move by his former negotiating partner, PA head Mahmoud Abbas. Olmert says the vote will promote a two-state solution and help Palestinian moderates in their quest to make peace with Israel. But Olmert, whose attempt to give Abbas pretty much everything he had asked for in 2008 resulted in the Palestinian fleeing the U.S.-sponsored talks without even responding to the offer of a state, seems more interested in vainly seeking to undermine his successor Benjamin Netanyahu than drawing conclusions from his own experience.

P. David Hornik: U.N. Says ‘Aye’ to Palestinian Terror State—The West votes to reward decades of Palestinian rejectionism and violence.

Dovid Efune: There is no Right and Left in Israeli Politics—For the most part, there is no political Right and Left in Israel. At least not in the way the respective positions are understood in the U.S., or Europe for that matter. American pundits are fond of referring to Prime Minister Nentanyahu’s Likud as “Right-wing,” especially following the party’s primaries earlier this week when Likud voters…

Jonathan Tobin: Palestinians Still Embrace Spirit of 1947—The vote to upgrade the Palestinian Authority’s status at the United Nations today is being conducted on the world body’s annual Day of Solidarity with Palestinians. That is, as PA head Mahmoud Abbas helpfully pointed out in his speech to the General Assembly, the anniversary of the 1947 UN vote to partition Palestine. Along with other anti-Israel speakers during this debate, he noted that the Palestinian people have suffered during the intervening decades and that it was an injustice that they had been denied a state. Yet he and others who spoke on his behalf failed to explain that failure to create a Palestinian Arab state alongside Israel at that time was not due to the intransigence of the Jews, West Bank settlements, or obstruction from the West. It was the Palestinians themselves as well as their allies throughout the Arab and Muslim world that absolutely refused to contemplate a plan that would have created an Arab state next to the new Jewish one.

Jerold Auerbach: Palestinian Sound and Fury— Today, November 29th, marked the 65thanniversary of UN Resolution 181, calling for the partition of Palestine into Jewish and Arab (not “Palestinian”) states. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, desperately trying to reclaim the limelight from Hamas after its fanciful claim of a Gaza “victory,” was expected to request his consolation prize from the General Assembly, welcoming the Palestinians as a non-member observer state, with the Vatican as its solitary partner.

Rick Richman: ‘Palestine’ Does Not Qualify as a ‘State’—Back in 2005, after Israel removed every soldier and settler from Gaza, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced that “from this day forward, there will be no security turmoil and weapons chaos and abductions, which are not characteristic of our culture.” He proved a poor prognosticator regarding Palestinian culture: given the chance to live “side by side in peace and security” with Israel, the Palestinians demonstrated they could not do so even with themselves.

Tomas Sandell: The Palestinians deserve better—While all the media attention over the last few weeks has been on Gaza another less visible war is gaining momentum at the United Nations this week, ”the diplomatic war.” This Thursday, the 29th November, the PA president Mahmoud Abbas will ask for an upgrade of the PA status at the UN to that of an observer non-member state, thus acting in breach of the Oslo agreement which stipulates that neither side shall initiate or take any steps that will change the status of the West Bank and Gaza strip, pending the outcome of the Permanent Status negotiations.” (Article 31)

Bruce Bawer: The Norwegian Labor Party’s Holocaust Fan—It’s springtime for Hitler in Norway.

Jonathan Tobin: Despite UN Charade, Hamas Cashing In—Today is Mahmoud Abbas’s big day at the United Nations, as the Palestinian Authority’s Third World allies and Western sympathizers are uniting to throw the Fatah leader a bone in the form of an upgrade in the group’s status at the world body. The symbolism of this move, especially since it is timed to occur on the 65th anniversary of the 1947 UN vote to partition Palestine, is not without some value to those that think the recognition of the PA’s rights in the territory the Jewish state conquered in 1967 is a step toward forcing more Israeli withdrawals. But the talk about the PA being the government of an independent Palestinian state, even on that only exists in theory, is an escape from reality, not a look into the future. That’s because the people that already run an independent Palestinian state have their eyes on Abbas’s rotten borough in the West Bank and are planning to put it under different management.

Bob Beauprez: Obama and Hamas—While the Obama Administration is taking their victory lap around Gaza, objective observers will take note of the broader landscape that has befallen Israel over the last four years.

Jack Cashill: Benghazi ‘Narrative’ Reads Like TWA 800’s— Once upon a time, Bill Clinton covered up the deaths of Americans to save his re-election. Barack Obama is doing the same thing…but now we have the internet.

Glenn Fairman: Israel and the Carthaginian Peace— To the Arab collective consciousness, the idea of a lasting peace with the Jew is anathema, and any negotiations have been couched within that cunning consciousness as a form of diplomatic warfare.

Stuart J. Moskovitz: How the U.N. Will Destroy Leftists’ Dreams of a ‘Two-State Solution’—The U.N., in its ceaseless and now providential stupidity, is on track to preclude a scenario many conservatives and supporters of Israel have long dreaded.

Shoshana Bryen: Why Treat Sudan Like a Normal Country?— From the perspective of American national interests, lack of effective action to remove Omar Hssan al-Bashir and his lieutenants allows Iran to vastly expand its conventional reach and encourage endless warfare in Sudan and neighboring states.

Ryan Mauro: California Church to Become Site of Islamist Convention—Muslim Brotherhood followers take the “next step” in their “mission” to corrupt interfaith relations.

Raymond Ibrahim: Why Christian Persecution Is Islam’s Achilles’ Heel—Exposing inherent Muslim rage and intolerance.

Jonathan Spyer: Syrian Rebels May Soon Take Country’s North—Bashar Assad’s forces suffered strategic losses this week, and now they are facing a dearth of manpower. This means the Syrian regime is losing ground to an insurgency in which the most active and dynamic elements are those representing one or another form of Sunni Islamism.

Barry Rubin: The Truth About Who Really Murdered Yasir Arafat— The Middle East is, of course, the place where conspiracy theories abound. Yet what can one say of those in the West who swallow every slander on Israel they are fed by Fatah, Hamas, and the new-age ideologues and bloggers whether or not any evidence is provided or even logical sense is made? Would that all of this kind of behavior be buried and never dug up again.



Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
