“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)
Yahweh can’t be stopped, and trying to stop Him is dangerous.
An article in the Times of Israel titled “Merkel: Anti-Semitism more widespread than we imagined” hit the nail on the head:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for “intensive action” against anti-Semitism on Saturday, urging vigilance particularly when dealing with young people from countries “where hatred of Israel and anti-Semitism is widespread.”
“Anti-Semitism is more widespread than we imagined. And that is why we must act intensively against it,” Merkel, who on Monday will inaugurate an exhibition in Berlin titled “The Art of the Holocaust,” said in her weekly video podcast.
In late November Josef Schuster, President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, expressed concern that many asylum seekers coming into the country come from cultures “in which hostility toward Israel and antisemitism are a common practice.” Merkel said these concerns must be taken “seriously.”
Anti-Semitism is an insidious, pernicious, ubiquitous problem that can’t be tolerated. Those who practice anti-Semitism, anti-Semites, are marching to the tune of the evil force whether or not they realize it.
It’s not a game, and it’s not funny. It’s serious, and it literally comes from the pits of hell.
Yahweh’s promises to and about the Children of Israel and the Land of Israel are their targets. That’s the truth, but most anti-Semites don’t know it. The instigator would like to prevent Yahweh from fulfilling His promises. He can’t succeed, but he won’t stop trying.
He thought he could prevent the Messiah from growing to maturity by nudging Herod the Great to kill all the baby boys in Bethlehem. That didn’t work.
He tried to get the Messiah to break the Law. That didn’t work, either.
He even used the Messiah’s disciples to try and persuade Him not to do the things that resulted in His crucifixion. This is what He told Peter:
“But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.’”
Satan is the instigator. He plays the tune to which anti-Semites march.
The Roman governor, Pilate, tried to set Him free, but this was His response:
“Therefore Pilate said to Him, ‘So You are a king?’ Yeshua answered, ‘You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.’”
Anti-Semites don’t hear His voice. They may be regular churchgoers, but they don’t know Him.
They are like Judas, the disciple who betrayed Him. Judas played a prominent role in the crucifixion, and since the Messiah’s primary mission was to shed His blood as a sacrifice for our sins, you might think that was not a problem. This is what the Messiah said about Judas:
“The Son of Man is to go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.”
The Messiah wasn’t prone to exaggeration. Judas would have been better off if he hadn’t been born. Lots of anti-Semites are in the same boat. They, too, would be better off if they had not been born.
As I said, this is not a game. It’s a deadly serious matter.
In the end, nothing can prevent Yahweh from fulfilling every promise He made. Woe to those who try to stop Him.
See “The Obama State Department endorses Europe’s latest slap at Israel”. That, my friends, is contemporary anti-Semitism. Obama and his cronies don’t think it is, but we’ve learned a lot about Obama and his team over the past 7 years. Thinking isn’t their forte.
The website is loaded with factual information that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Yahweh is our Savior and that the Messiah is Yahweh.
I hope you will take a few minutes and explore the website. I also hope you will share it with your friends and family.
It’s time for believers to tell the world about our God by His Name—Yahweh.

SnyderTalk Comment: You can call it what you want. I call it World War 3, and I’m not guessing.
Soeren Kern—Islam and Islamism in America in 2015: Part I: The Muslim population of the United States surpassed 3.5 million in 2015, according to demographic projections compiled by the Pew Research Center. In percentage terms, Muslims currently comprise roughly 1% of the US population. As in Europe, Islam was an ever-present topic in American newspaper headlines during 2015. Most news items involved terrorism-related issues — including many cases of lone-wolf terrorists — closely followed by articles about Muslim integration and assimilation.
SnyderTalk Comment: Houston, we have a problem.
Jerusalem Post—German paper refuses to fully correct report demonizing Israel: The Frankfurt-based pro-Israel media watchdog NGO Honestly Concerned filed a complaint with the Press Council in late 2014 against SZ because of the article.
Jerusalem Post—Herzog to French leaders: Stop advancing resolutions which hurt Israel—Opposition leader Isaac Herzog met on Friday at the Elysée Palace with French President François Hollande and Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, presenting his new diplomatic plan of separation from Palestinian villages surrounding Jerusalem.
Voice of America—Kerry: US-Saudi Friendship Strong as Ever: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated support for ally Saudi Arabia as he finished a visit to the country Sunday, saying the two nations have as strong a friendship as ever.
SnyderTalk Comment: I wonder what goes through Kerry’s mind. Of course, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia aren’t friends. Our country has never been a real friend of the Saudis. They use us and we use them. That’s not friendship.
Israel is a different matter. They really like us, and they want desperately to trust us. Under Obama, Kerry, and Clinton, they have learned that they can’t.
Let’s connect the dots: Saudi Arabia has lost confidence in the U.S. The U.S. has lost confidence in Israel. Israel and Saudi Arabia are working together to combat the Iran threat. The U.S. is cozying up to Iran. The U.S. and Turkey are wringing their hands over Syria. Russia and Iran are playing active roles in Syria. Russia is moving closer to Israel and Egypt. Iran is at war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen and is threatening to wipe Israel off the map.
Bottom line: U.S. out. Russia in. Iran is a wild card. This is Obama’s doing.
As Alice of Wonderland fame said, “Things are getting curiouser and curiouser.”
Fox News—Biden says US, Turkey prepared for military solution against ISIS in Syria: Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday the U.S. and Turkey are prepared for a military solution against ISIS in Syria should the Syrian government and rebel-opposition forces fail to reach a peace agreement during its upcoming meeting in Geneva.
SnyderTalk Comment: Did I miss something? Isn’t Russia already in Syria along with Iran trying to impose a “military solution”?
Didn’t they just send Hezbollah home with their tails tucked between their legs? Does Biden think Russia and Iran are going to invite the U.S. and Turkey to sub for Nasrallah’s battered crew?
Is Biden saying that the U.S. and Turkey are planning to join the Russia-Iran alliance? Is he saying that we are going to fight against that alliance? After all, aren’t they the Axis of Evil and the Evil Empire?
Pardon me. I’m mixing administrations. Sometimes the catchy one-liners run together in my mind.
Poor ol’ Joe. He can’t get it right even if you spoon-feed it to him.
When I think about Obama in the White House and Biden there beside him just in case something happens to POTUS, it makes me want to cry. SNL should do a skit about it. It would be great.
Benedetta Berti—A Chance for Peace in Syria?: On December 18, 2015, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2254, endorsing a roadmap for a political solution to the Syrian civil war. A number of foreign policy commentators initially welcomed the development as an important signal that the international community was finally united and committed to putting an end to the bloody and protracted internal conflict that has both engulfed Syria and destabilized the Levant. However, many central hurdles remain and effectively constrain attempts to move forward with the political process called for by the resolution. These hurdles will probably prevent the start of peace negotiations soon, in spite of the urgency of the talks.

Xinhua—China, Iran upgrade ties to carry forward millennia-old friendship: China and Iran, two ancient civilizations, agreed Saturday to elevate their ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership to boost cooperation on all fronts and carry forward their millennia-old friendship. The consensus was reached during President Xi Jinping’s visit to Iran, the first in 14 years by a Chinese head of state. China and Iran have no fundamental conflicts, and there are only consistent mutual support and mutual benefit between them, Xi said during summit talks with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani.
SnyderTalk Comment: Two ancient civilizations? Not really.
China is an ancient civilization, but modern-day China is more an artifact of Mao’s Cultural Revolution.
Modern-day Iran is an artifact of wars that took place over thousands of years. The latest involved the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
Iran’s leaders like to say they are Persians. I can understand why, but this question stands out in my mind. If they are Persians, why do they act like Arabs?
You are who you emulate. There, I’ve said it. Today’s Iranians are Arabs who speak Farsi.
I’ve talked about World War 3. It’s an Arab thing with support from useful idiots.

CNN— In Iowa, Cruz aims to undo Trump’s cachet on immigration: Inside this barren, dimly-lit community center, a fast-talking Ted Cruz decided to play a bit of offense Saturday evening. How could we secure the border, a man asked? Don’t elect Donald Trump. “There’s another candidate in this race who talks quite a bit about immigration — and everything else,” Cruz said, a line he added to his stump speech Saturday, recalling the Capitol Hill fight that tried to grant citizenship to those here illegally.
Reuters—Michael Bloomberg may launch independent US presidential bid: Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has told his aides to draw up plans for an independent campaign for the U.S.
SnyderTalk Comment: Just when you thought it couldn’t be any more surreal.
As I have said many times, no one should think he knows exactly what Yahweh is going to do.
I have a hunch that the U.S. is being positioned to pay the price. I’m saying that I think those who have been saying that judgment is coming to America won’t have to wait much longer.
A Bloomberg candidacy may usher in a Hillary Clinton presidency.
There is a lesson in this: Yahweh will let us go just so far before He drops the hammer. When the hammer drops, it won’t be on the primary parties alone. All of us will be hurt.

Jerusalem Post—Two old friends: Israel and Turkey: A few years ago, as the Middle East began its slide into a black hole, the powerful relationship between Turkey and Israel was more vital than ever.
SnyderTalk Comment: Relations between Israel and Turkey can be divided into 2 periods: B.E. and A.E. That’s before Erdogan and after Erdogan.

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.
