the Spirit said to Philip, "Go up and join this chariot." Philip
ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you
understand what you are reading?" And he said, "Well, how could
I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and
sit with him. Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this:
"he was led as a sheep to slaughter; and as a lamb before its
shearer is silent, so he does not open his mouth. "in humiliation his
judgment was taken away; who will relate his generation? for his life is
removed from the earth."
The eunuch answered Philip and said, "Please tell me, of whom
does the prophet say this? Of himself or of someone else?" Then
Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached
Jesus to him. As they went along the road they came to some water; and the
"Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?" [ And
Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And
he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of
God."] And he ordered the chariot to stop; and they both went down
into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch , and he baptized him. When
they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip
away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, but went on his way
Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, " All authority has been
given to Me in heaven and on earth. "Go
therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to
observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to
the end of the age." [Matt

- Baptisim (Baruch HaShem Yeshua):
was a Mikvah in Gages Lake Illinois on Sunday August 13, 2006. Four
brothers in the L-rd made a public affirmation of their faith in
Yeshua. Brother Jack Kinsella and I were blessed to serve in
baptizing Frank, Jake, Josh and Joel. Baruch HaShem Yeshua.
believe is to receive the Slave-Savior (John 1:12) not only for
forgiveness of sins (Acts 10:43) but also for regeneration (1 Pet. 1:21,
23). Those who thus believe become the children of G-d (John 1:12-13) and
the members of Christ (Eph. 5:30) in an organic union with the Triune G-d
(Matt. 28:19). To be baptized is to affirm this by being buried to
terminate the old creation through the death of the Slave-Savior and by
being raised up to be the new creation of G-d through the Slave-Savior's
resurrection. Such a baptism is much more advanced than the baptism of
repentance preached by John (1:4; Acts 19:3-5). To believe and to be so
baptized are two parts of one complete step for receiving the full
salvation of G-d. To be baptized without believing is merely an empty
ritual; to believe without being baptized is to be saved only inwardly
without an outward affirmation of the inward salvation. These two should
go together. Moreover, water baptism should be accompanied by Spirit
baptism, even as the children of Israel were baptized in the sea (water)
and in the cloud (the Spirit) — 1 Cor. 10:2; 12:13.
lift them up in your prayers.
being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from
Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which,"
He said, "you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with
water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from
6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying,
"L-rd, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7
And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons
which the Father has put in His own authority.
8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon
you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the end of the earth." [Acts

ending. If not, I'll go buy another copy from a different story and try
watching that one. Maybe he won't shoot the dog.

often enough, and talk about how often I do it, I may be offered a job as a

understand that the more meaningless your efforts are, the further you can
advance up the ladder.

Secretary-General where I can help the down-trodden and victimized of this
world by rewarding the victimizers and blaming the victims and be the
recipient of global accolades for my far-reaching irrelevance.

evidently by helping the Jews make the transition from this Jerusalem to the
Big Jerusalem In the Sky. At the very least, I might get a job offer from
Hezbollah or Hamas. Or a nice 'thank you' card from the Big Kahuna himself,
Osama bin Laden.
just want to help. I'm here to serve. Call me.
1948, the combined forces of the Arab world converged on Israel following her
declaration of statehood, vowing to annihilate the infant state while still
in its crib.
UN remained silent, fully expecting the Arab war machine to overrun the
unarmed and unorganized Jewish state and put an end to the Jewish Question
without having to endure another Adolf Hitler or another world war in order
to accomplish it, while keeping a clear conscience in the meantime.
all, the Germans were Europeans and Europe was much too cultured to
countenance another Holocaust on its soil. On the other hand, the attacking
forces in this case were all Arab Muslims. And killing Jews is what Arab
can blame them for that, anymore than one can blame a cat for killing mice.
So the UN accepted Israel's declaration, granted it admission to the UN, and
sat back to enjoy the fireworks.
the UN's surprise, the ragtag Israeli Defense Forces beat back the combined
armies of Transjordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia and acquired an
extra 2000 square miles of territory beyond that granted by the 1947
forced the United Nations to impose a cease-fire on Israel, before the
Israelis took over the whole durned Islamic Middle East.
1956, a new war between Israel and Egypt's Gamal Abdul Nasser broke out after
the armies of Jordan, Egypt and Syria were consolidated under Egyptian
leadership in a second effort to eradicate the Jewish State.
Operation Kadesh, commanded by Moshe Dayan, lasted less than a week; its
forces reached the eastern bank of the Suez Canal in about 100 hours, seizing
the Gaza Strip and nearly all the Sinai Peninsula.
the UN General Assembly imposed a cease fire against Israel, forcing the
Jewish State to give back all the territory it had gained during the second
war of annihilation against the Jews in the space of eight years.
hard-headed Israelis refused to surrender to the UN at first. It took several
more resolutions and pressure from the United States before Israel withdrew
in 1957 to its original, indefensible borders to wait for the next invasion.
Even then, the Jews wouldn't withdraw without security guarantees, so the UN
established a United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) to stand between Israel
and the Arab world.
took ten years before the Arab world sufficiently recovered to mount a third
attempt to annihilate the Jews.
June, 1967, when the Arab forces were fully prepared and Cairo has massed
sufficient troops along Israel's border, UNEF pulled out and let Jordan,
Syria and Egypt have another go at them.
days later, Israel had destroyed the Arab Legion's air force, kicked Syria
off the Golan Heights, took back all of Jerusalem, threw Jordan out of the
West Bank and took the Gaza Strip away from Egypt.
annexation of Sinai, Gaza, Arab East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Golan
land frontiers with Egypt and Jordan, removed the most heavily populated
Jewish areas from direct Arab artillery range, and temporarily increased its
the United Nations imposed another ceasefire on Israel [Resolution 242]
before the Islamic world's war-making abilities were completely destroyed.
1973, Egypt tried again, supported by Syria and financed by Saudi Arabia. The
sneak attack was scheduled for October 6, as Israeli forces were at home with
their families celebrating Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement.
UN's major powers, including the US, Russians, French and the UK all knew of
the attack several days in advance, but, in the spirit of fair play, let
Israel discover it when Egyptian and Syrian tanks began rolling over Israel's
it became clear that, instead of being finally destroyed, the Israelis had
started to win [again] the UN forced another ceasefire and stationed another
UN force between Israel and the Arabs to oversee Israeli compliance.
Arab governments finally realized that they couldn't defeat Israel by
conventional means, so they went underground, offering material support and
training to Islamic terror groups, including Yasser Arafat's al Fatah and
later, to Hezbollah.
the thirty years since, the UN has passed more resolutions 'condemning'
Israel, 'deploring' Israel, 'strongly condemning' Israel, imposing conditions
on Israel and subsequently 'deeply regretting' Israel for ignoring them than
it has against the rest of the world combined.
percent of all UN resolutions passed by the General Assembly since 1948
expressly condemn Israel. Of the 175 resolutions passed between 1948 and
1991, 97 – more than half – were aimed at Israel. Four were against an
month ago, Hamas infiltrated Israeli territory, killing several Israeli
soldiers and kidnapping one young Israeli corporal to hold hostage, demanding
the release of 1200 Palestinian terrorists held in Israeli jails as ransom.
following week, Hezbollah invaded from the north, killed eight Israeli
soldiers and kidnapped two more, announcing its intention to ransom its
hostages for terrorist prisoners held by Israel.
United Nations approved a document entitled “International Convention
Against the Taking of Hostages” in December, 1979. Article 1 of this
document defines the crime:
person who seizes or detains and threatens to kill, to injure or to continue
to detain another person (hereinafter referred to as the "hostage")
in order to compel a third party, namely, a State, an international
intergovernmental organization, a natural or juridical person, or a group of
persons, to do or abstain from doing any act as an explicit or implicit
condition for the release of the hostage commits the offence of taking of
hostages ("hostage-taking") within the meaning of this
3 expressly gives the state whose citizen was taken hostage carte blanche to
do what is necessary to recover such hostages.
State Party in the territory of which the hostage is held by the offender
shall take all measures it considers appropriate to ease the situation of the
hostage, in particular, to secure his release and, after his release, to
facilitate, when relevant, his departure.”
the UN has not invoked [or even alluded to] its own conventions on hostage
taking, one can only conclude that, under UN rules, 1) an Israeli hostage is
not a 'person' and, 2) Israel is not a 'state'.
Israeli military efforts aimed at recovering its hostages cannot be
permitted. Consequently, UN Resolution 1701 imposing an Israeli ceasefire and
withdrawal from Lebanon [without its hostages] passed the UN Security Council
Kofi Annan expressed his deep disappointment in the Security Council [read:
the United States] for letting Israel run roughshod over the 'innocent'
Lebanese (who supplied Hezbollah with both a base of operations and helped
them spirit Israeli hostages out of reach.)
1701 'tabled' the fate of the hostages until a later time. [No doubt an
endless source of comfort and hope for the Israeli hostages and their
ensure a 'lasting peace' Israel must stop killing Hezbollah fighters. [While
there are still some left to rearm and regroup]. UNIFIL's mandate to ensure
Lebanon's border security was renewed. UNIFIL has been on Lebanon's border
for 28 years. It is worth remembering that UNIFIL witnessed the Hezbollah
abductions on July 12, but neither prevented NOR REPORTED it.
its entire 28 year history, UNIFIL has yet to be cited as having prevented a
SINGLE cross border incursion into Israeli territory by Hezbollah terrorists.
UNIFIL's value as a neutral deterrent force WAS highlighted in 2000. That was
when the UN was forced to release photographic evidence of 'dozens' of UNIFIL
troops and official UNIFIL vehicles that were PRESENT when Hezbollah
kidnapped three other Israeli soldiers.
that incident, it turned out that Hezbollah fighters were able to get close
enough because they were wearing UNIFIL uniforms supplied by Indian elements
of the UNIFIL force [in exchange for bribes amounting to hundreds of
thousands of dollars).
Indian soldier attached to that UNIFIL unit later testified, "By this
stage, there was a big commotion and dozens of UN soldiers from the Indian
brigade came around." He testified that they all knew that the men
wearing their uniforms were really Hezbollah in disguise.
also testified that at least four UN soldiers collaborated with Hezbollah,
helping them to reach the ambush site and assisted them in locating their IDF
targets. When the story broke, Kofi Annan indignantly denied it and refused
to investigate or take any action against the UNIFIL soldiers involved.
Israel discovered the attack had been videotaped by UNIFIL soldiers, it
demanded access to it. Kofi Annan and his Special Envoy denied that any
videotape existed. Nine months after the kidnapping, July 6, 2001, the UN
admitted that it had the videotape but refused to turn it over to Israel.
Annan demanded a UN 'investigation', which unsurprisingly concluded that
there was no evidence that the UNIFIL forces had been bribed, or that the UN
had deliberately misled anyone.
nevertheless continued to refuse to let Israel see the tape until after he
was forced to by a US Congressional vote [411-4] that tied compliance with
Israeli's request to continued US financial support.
the end, Kofi relented, kinda, but not before doctoring the tape so the
perpetrators could not be identified. He also agreed to give the Israelis
some, but not all, of the items which the UN had seized from the getaway
January 29, 2004, the bodies of the murdered Israelis were returned to Israel
by Hezbollah, as part of a prisoner exchange.
clearly, UNIFIL is the PERFECT choice to continue to protect Israel from
Islamic terror. Which is why Kofi praised them so profusely in his UN rant
following Resolution 1701's unanimous passage on Friday.
1701 forbids further deployment of 'foreign forces' [like Iranian
Revolutionary Guard, Syrian intelligence, etc.] from Lebanon without the
consent of Lebanon's government. It forbids the sales or supply of arms and
weapons into Lebanon without authorization from Lebanon's government.
Annan says that should address Israel's concerns about Hezbollah using the
ceasefire to rearm itself. And it requires Lebanon's government to obey
previous UN resolutions to disarm Hezbollah.
anybody ELSE noticed that Hezbollah is an elected PART of Lebanon's
a parting shot, Resolution 1701 “Stresses the importance of, and the need
to achieve, a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East, based
on all its relevant resolutions including its resolutions 242 (1967) of 22
November 1967 and 338 (1973) of 22 October 1973.”
Resolution 1559 calling for the disarmament of Hezbollah and Hamas wasn't
mentioned as relevant to "a just and lasting peace."
could go on, but its too depressing. So I just put Old Yeller in my DVD
