Over the past month or two I have received news by way of “Christians” stating that there are Hassidim in Yerushalayim who are stoning women and girls at the Western Wall Woman’s prayer section. It’s sad that when something happens against the Jewish people, the loudest “Christians” are mostly silent, but when something happens, or is blown out of proportion (false witness) the loudest Christians are the first to voice an uproar against Jews and Israel. So what is really happening.
I have also heard from many “Christians” that Israel is an apostate nation that is shunned by Yahweh. Well, they are like any other secular society that is true, and apostate from a Christian point of view; but there are a lot of Torah believing Jews and real believers in Yeshua who live in Israel. To label “All” of Israel as apostate is not only unfair, but an affront to all pious Jews and Christians everywhere. America is much worse off than Israel where apostasy is concerned; that is a hard pill to swallow for many. And in addition, it is an affront to me because I have a daughter, son in-law and 7 beautiful grandchildren that live in Israel, and you know what, they are all believers in Yeshua. The two adults are witnesses for Yeshua in a land that is sometimes hostile to Yeshua’s believers and they have more respect from me then all of you armchair believers living here in the States or anywhere else in this corrupt world.
If you know anything about Jews, you know that they (we) excel at just about everything that we put our minds to. Those of us who are bad excel at badness and those of who observe the Torah observe it to the inth degree. Christians often fault Jews because we are commanded to follow all 613 commandments. Of course, since 70 AD that has been impossible seeing that the Beit HaMikdash was destroyed by the Romans. There is no place in Yerushalayim to fulfill many of the Commands of Yahweh. Of course, those of us who have faith in Yeshua know that there is no need for sin sacrifices and such; however we still observe the feasts and festivals, observe Shabbat on the last day of the week and most of try to keep Kosher.
Now, part of Jewish tradition, at least for the more Orthodox Jews, is to have separate places for women to pray; apart from the men. While many people outside of Orthodox circles would argue with this practice, it is just Jewish custom to do things this way. You can argue, hem and haw about it but you would be wrong. Why you might ask? Well, many of those who are first to point the finger at Jews and Israel are the first to celebrate Christmas on December 25th, the first to teach their Children that a giant elf blesses them with gifts on that day and he has reindeer and a flying sleigh. They are the first to teach their kids that there is an Easter Bunny and that hunting for a rabbit’s eggs (explain that one to me) is a fun thing to do. All of these things are of pagan origin, yet for some reason it is okay for most of those who wear the badge of Christian, to teach such things to children and perpetuate paganism within the Church of Yeshua Ha Mashiach. The adage says, “when you point a finger at someone there are three fingers pointing back at you” is quite true in this instance. I know that what I just wrote will really tick off some people, but the truth often does. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Knowing people that live in Israel, I know some of the internal goings on there. For instance, there is an increasing gay and lesbian movement that is frustrating many Israeli’s. Just last year, the only Messianic Moshav was fined an exorbitant amount of money because a lesbian couple sued them in Israeli court. They sued the Moshav because they (the Moshav) refused to allow a lesbian marriage there. Now I’m sure that the fact that they are Messianic figured into the equation, but the loss of the Moshav in court set a precedence that affects not only Jews who believe in Yeshua, but any Jewish congregation that sees the homosexual lifestyle as being an abomination; just like the Bible reiterates time and time again.
Now, enter the “Women At The Wall” movement. They are a group of lesbians and other woman’s rights gals who are adamant about watering down the Jewish religion, especially the Orthodox and others who are more conservative. Knowing full well that Tradition states that men and women are supposed to pray in separate areas, these women are trying to subvert what has been for millennia and change it into something that “they” want. It should be noted that Orthodox and conservative women abhor these lesbians too and that the protest involved them too as they protested the protesters. You should also know that according to Torah, only men are allowed to wear Tefilin. What is Tefilin you ask? It consists of the tiny scrolls of the Torah that Yahweh commanded Jewish men to wear on their forehead between their eyes and on their left arm and hand. These scrolls are in black boxes and bound to the head and arm by leather straps. See the illustration below:
So, we have a group of lesbians and other hard core feminists who are trying to infiltrate and change the religious traditions that many Jews hold sacred. I have been told by quite a few “Christians” that the Jews are being unfair by trying to ban these females from praying on the wall. Let me reiterate, there is a woman’s section where women are allowed to pray at the Temple Wall, that should not be an issue, not at all.
Okay, I have not convinced some that just a few females are the problem. By the way, I like to use the word female instead of woman. To me, woman is a term of endearment and to call even half of these females “women” is an affront, especially since half of them want to take on a male role in their abominable lesbian relationship.
Now, let’s turn the tables a little bit, okay? Let us suppose that you’re a Christian and you’re comfortable in your church. You like it the way that it is. You like singing the praise and worship songs and the pastor can really dish up a good sermon. However, a group of women comes into your church. They start yelling that it is unfair that the Bible says that only men can be pastors and they start protesting by storming the church with many other of their “liked minded” sisterhood. They start to stand up in the choir section singing songs about equality and political correctness. Then, although you have tolerated them thus far, even though they go against everything that you stand for; they demand that since you’re a religious organization, you have to marry them to each other. All of a sudden you find yourself in the same shoes as both Jews and Christians in Israel. Now you can understand why there is such an uproar at the Temple Wall and why the Orthodox and Conservative Jews are so upset.
Now here is the real kicker. This scenario is going to be reality here in America very soon. The homosexual lobby is pressing for legislation to recognize homosexual marriage as a right that the government has to recognize. Some states have passed such legislation already. No big deal, right? Well hold on a minute. When the government recognizes their marriages as legal then they will be equal with those who have married in proper unions; that being a man and woman as a married couple. Still no problem? Well, when their unions are recognized as legal then they will have the right to walk into your church and demand that your pastor marry them, in your church, right at the front, just like you did when you had your Holy Union before Yahweh. If your pastor refuses to do this, what will happen? Okay, so your pastor says that he won’t marry them and/or he won’t allow the union to take place in your church. The lesbian or gay couple could go down to the nearest lawyer and file a discrimination law suit against your church. In our current society, and with their hatred toward Christians you would lose your case. Paying a heavy fine would be the least that the government could do to you. In all likelihood they would force you to marry the couple. They would make a spectacle of your church in the local media. The IRS would probably remove your 501c3, taking away your nonprofit organization status. In many cases the government would bar you from operating the church.
I know that quite a few people don’t believe that these things could happen. I know already that I’m going to get many letters calling me a hater, a bigot and my favorite one, “judgmental.” Well, that might be the case in your eyes. I’m merely trying to warn people who don’t seem to have much common sense or discernment of the things that are coming, and are already here in Israel. So, go ahead and knock the Jews for what is happening at the Temple Wall. Your words will turn on you and you will find them biting you on the backside in the very near future. Don’t say that you weren’t warned, because what you have read above was more than an adequate warning of things to come.
