BREAKING NEWS: The autopsy of Arafat Jaradat, who died on Saturday in the Israeli Megiddo
Prison, shows that he died of torture inflicted during his interrogation, and not due to a cardiac arrest. This may bring the West Bank to the streets in mass.
IDF gunfire on Sunday wounded the 15-year-old son of a Palestinian security service chief and also wounded at least 23 others.
OUTREACH SITE: Mass hunger strikes in Israeli prisons, mass demonstrations across the West Bank for the past week, tensions rising with Hamas, a deadlocked coalition process, the situation with Hezbollah and Syria; are all creating a serious problems for Bibi and presaging regional violence.

The COG Groups are paying lip-service to the scriptures and NOT doing what the scriptures say; just like the Roman Catholics do. I am not talking about catholic doctrine here, but about the “say and do not” attitude concerning the commandments and teachings of Christ.
Cardinal Ravasi Leads Roman Curia Lenten Retreat is a major post on Cardinal Ravasi who has been groomed by Benedict XVI and cardinal Bertone for the next pope. That does not mean that he will be elected, but the support of the curia is a big plus in the selection process.
This post contains several of his 17 speeches to the Lenten retreat of the curia, and reveals the ability of this man to powerfully deceive the nations. The man talks a very good talk as he entices people into the abomination of rebellion against God, while claiming that he is leading people to a closer relationship with God.
It is this dichotomy of “saying and not doing” which plagues the COG Groups today in their lukewarm laxity towards the practical KEEPING of the commandments.
As we all know the Roman church goes far beyond that, with its claiming to be of God, while holding the totally false doctrines of the Babylonian Mysteries.
While the COG says and does not; the Roman church says the outright lie that they are for God, when their teachings are the teachings of Satan, to outright rebel against God. The appearance of a lamb, while speaking the words of the dragon [Satan].
While the COG “says and does not”; the Roman pontiff says he follows Christ and God, and then does the opposite of what he says and God commands.
The popes even claim to be God, sitting in the temple of God [the Vatican], in the absence of God They claim to have all the authority and prerogatives of God, to do as they will and substitute their traditions and ideas for the scriptures, thus exalting themselves above the scriptures and the One who inspired the scriptures.
This is a followup to Friday’s post on the Rotary club.
You are incorrect about me. I have NEVER been a Mason , nor have I ever been a Rotarian, nor have I ever been to any of their meetings. I ask that a retraction be made about my involvement in Masonry/Rotary.
Your use of the word “we” and your defense of the indefensible, caused me to believe that you were a member along with Vic. Since you say that is in error it will be corrected. James
“We do not endorse the symbols, we do not embrace the symbols, but we certainly should praise and feel free to associate with fellow human beings that are practicing good works, when they are found, and cooperate with such if it is beneficial and aiding in the alleviation of suffering. This is what the Rotary does. This does not mean that we are compromising with the truths of God, that we hold dear, when we do so.”
The issue is not so much Rotary as it is about the teachings of Christ being ignored by men in high positions supposedly in the faith.
After going through Matthew, Mark and Luke; we should have studied enough by now to understand what Jesus Christ taught, please place those teachings beside the actions of a man who sues his brothers, and gives money raised for the poor in a manner deliberately designed to bring praise for himself, and trumpets his charity. A man who has a history of attacking those loyal to the faith to maintain his job in the Tkach WCG, and was well known for his evangelical Tkach loyalties.
FACTS: I am sure you know these scriptures:
1) This world is Satan’s world, until the elect qualify to replace him and his spirits.
2) Satan is the god of this world and has deceived the whole world except those called out of his darkness and into God’s light.
3) Satan and his spirits run this world by influencing human beings to do their will, within the limits allowed by God.
4) Masonry and the associated Service Clubs are centers for like-minded people to get together and assist each other in their business endeavours; cloaked behind “Good Works”.
These men are pledged to help each other in their business and other purposes, and to always give any rising opportunities to fellow members. In that way they conspire against free and fair business practices and defraud the community they appear to be helping.
Even the Masonic Lodge presents itself as a “Good Works” organization and the lower levels have no idea what the organization is all about. They have been deceived into thinking that this is just a fraternal organization helping each other out in business and assisting the community while having a good time.
5) By the supposed charity of these groups, members also gain respect in the community they are fleecing, which brings further political and business advantages. By giving other people’s money for charitable projects, mainly NOT their own money; they use their membership connections to build their businesses and increase their personal wealth. These worldly wise people gain great advantages for themselves over the ordinary man by their club membership .
6) Satan packages his way of rebellion and death in the most attractive, appealing, exciting and desireable manner as possible.
Disney’s Fantasia, the Sorcerers Apprentice etc are designed to make the most appalling evil as appealing and attractive as possible. Harry Potter is the same, while National Geographic is designed to use the most beautiful photography to push evolution. Society is filled with such deception, seeking to make evil appear as attractive and good.
Satan always presents himself as an angel of light and goodness, in order to deceive.
We are to keep ourselves away from such worldliness and become wise in godly things.
Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. [We are not to be entangled in this world's evils.
Romans 16:19. . . . but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
One of Victor Kubik's fellow Rotarian's and Masons took exception to my post the other day and sent ne this comment.
The apostle Paul went to Mars Hill , did he not? He was not threatened by this, or intimidated by it. He used it as an opportunity.
Paul did not join them in their false teachings and organizations, but rather preached to them the knowledge of the true God, teaching them repentance and salvation. Paul would never have joined a Masonic or worldly service organization. Rather he would have preached to them to repent and come out of that evil organization.
When Vic gives his talk, you can be sure it will be a self aggrandizing speech about what he did with other peoples money in Africa, and will not call them to repentance, or witness the truth of God to them. jhe may witness that UCG is doing such good works; but he will not be witnessing of Christ and the Father and their sound doctrine. Many fell for HWA claiming to be preaching the Gospel as he talked about everything but. Don't fall for that again.
The Masonic movement is responsible for much of the evil in this world, which evil and rebellion against God, they hide behind so called "Good Works" organizations. By being a part of that, you are helping the great evil of the Mystery Religion and its rebellion against God.
We are to be in the world and not a part of it. This is all Victor Kubik is doing
Absolutely FALSE; Vic has not been content to be a bystander, he has joined worldliness and voluntarily become a part of this world's system of evil.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
"Matt. 23:5-6 "They make their phylacteries. They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues." Often ministers will go to the Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club and other clubs and activities, wanting to sit in the best places and kind of "show off." That should not be the attitude of God's true ministers."
He is being an excellent ambassador to fellow citizens and business community leaders.
I cannot help but notice, that you did not say what he is an ambassador of: Most certainly not of God!
False again! By doing his "Good Works' under the banner of a worldly organization, he is an excellent ambassador for the Rotary and the Masonic Lodge to the community!
He should be doing his "Good Works" under the banner of UCG and hiding any personal charity; then he might be an ambassador for UCG at least. For these past years he has been doing Lifenets as a personal activity and trumpeting his good works like any good Pharisee.
Mordecai sat at the city gates or “Kings Gate” with the city elders in his time as well in the Book of Esther.
A strange comment; Mordecai was a true ambassador for God and did not join in with the heathen nor bow to their ungodly practices. It was for that very reason that he and the Jews were persecuted. What you suggest would not have even entered the mind of Mordecai.
Est 3:2 And all the king's servants, that were in the king's gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence. 3 Then the king's servants, which were in the king's gate, said unto Mordecai, Why transgressest thou the king's commandment?
4 Now it came to pass, when they spake daily unto him, and he hearkened not unto them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai's matters would stand: for he had told them that he was a Jew.
5 And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.
There is paganism all around us. There are pagan symbols on the dollar bill. If we are of the faith, and strong, then it is all “meat before idols”. Such things cannot harm us. Certainly we do not worship in a pagan fashion, or deify paganism. However, none of us , in his faith, are somehow sullied or diminished by a symbol. Symbols do not make us “unclean”. We do not endorse the symbols, we do not embrace the symbols, but we certainly should praise and feel free to associate with fellow human beings that are practicing good works, when they are found, and cooperate with such if it is beneficial and aiding in the alleviation of suffering. This is what the Rotary does. This does not mean that we are compromising with the truths of God, that we hold dear, when we do so.
We are not sullied by a pagan symbol that we see and object to it: But we most definitely ARE rendered unclean when we embrace and join ourselves to the symbol and the false organization and teachings which it represents. How foolish to say that seeing something, is the same as JOINING the system of worldliness.
WE ARE COMMANEDED to: Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
2 Cor 6:14 is not just talking about marriage, it is speaking about any association with any false religion or worldliness.
2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
Siemens was part of the Nazi war machine once. Should COG members not work there?
Again a false argument; is Seimens a part of a war machine NOW?
If it is, we should NOT invest in it, or be involved with it; or in any other company producing lethal war weapons; including the American or Israeli war machines! To do so, or to voluntarily work for the military; would make us hypocrites when we will not serve in the military.
Should COG members not work for a company like FED EX , that may be transporting goods like “morning after pills”? These are nonsense ideas, that are pharisaical and impractical at the very least.
If we know for a fact that we are helping to destroy life; we are REQUIRED, to ABSOLUTELY NOT be involved in the supporting of such evil. To call that Pharisaical is to be ignorant of the word of God, and to have no scruples in personal conduct whatsoever. It is the same as saying "I cannot kill, so I will help another kill"! When you participate in, or assist in another's sin, you are as guilty as he is.
1 Tim 5:22. . . . neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
Jesus did not recluse himself from the dredges of society, nor from the leaders of society.
Neither did he join with them and their evil deeds! He called the wicked to REPENTANCE!
To equate JOINING an organization which uses charity as a cloak for wickedness; with Jesus Christ's refusal and rejection of wickedness, and his calling such men to repentance; is one of the biggest examples of double-think self justification and blasphemy that I have seen in the COG.
Your criticism of Victor Kubik is unwarranted. Nowhere in your missive did you praise him for the wonderful works that he has worked for and championed thru Lifenets in feeding the hungry , providing wheelchairs, water, education to many of the COG Faith and even those outside of the faith. Rotary has been a service to Lifenets, to the benefit of our Sabbatarian brethren.
You reveal yourself, that the purpose is to seek the praises of men, and not to obey Christ; who said to to do your alms in secret. Please go through the Gospels studies where you may learn the teachings of Jesus Christ and how they have been violated wholesale.
Our sins cannot be hidden from God by a facade of charity. The FIRST Great Commandment is to love and obey GOD! Rejecting the teachings of Jesus Christ even though one is charitable towards men, will get you no further than it does any other commandment rejecting person, who loves the creation [including men] more than the Creator.
Indeed that is what these kinds of organizations are for; to gain the praise of the people; while taking advantage of them. An appearance of good works is used as a kind of political tool to gain advantage over peers and be accounted chief.
To be fair, most of those involved, especially at the lower levels are deceived and do not know what they are in to. These service clubs were started by Masons, to use non Mason members of the community to support Masonic goals. They are controlled by Masons while remaining at arms length from the Lodge; most of the non Mason members do not understand that as they support masonic agendas.
Mat 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
Mat 6 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
LifeNets charity could have and should have, been done by UCG as an organization, and not through a Masonic institution. By doing things through Rotary, Vic is aggrandizing Rotary and NOT UCG and NOT God. He is exalting men and himself in particular, instead of God.
This is a political means for Vic to gain and maintain a level of popularity, while covering up his rebellion against Jesus Christ. People ate focused on his “Good Works” and do not see his real fruits; of subtly leading the elders away from sound doctrine.
May I inquire as to what Shining Light has done in regards to serving to the very real, temporal , physical needs of both brethren and non-brethren alike? It is often easy to be in an Ivory Tower , and to prognosticate and arm chair quarterback. Jesus not only gave a spiritual message, but he also provided food, physical healing, and real hands on help to the needy. The parable about the Good Samaritan says a lot about this.
The good Samaritan did not go around bragging about what he had done! Nor did he gain any personal advantage by his deeds! He also did not give money donated by others, and did give generously out of HIS OWN pocket.
Yes, we are to help others; but there is a godly way to do so, and it is not by seeking personal popularity, or the praise of self. And it should not be for the purpose of hiding evil deeds to keep people from discovering the whole truth.
Attempting to evade and distract from the issue will not help; which proves the spirit you are of. The old: “If you can’t disprove the message, then attack the messenger” attitude.
Jesus Christ commanded us NOT to trumpet our charity; as you, Vic and Rotary do, and you know absolutely nothing about me, this work, my situation, or what I have done.
What Rotary, you and Vic do; is to use other people’s gifts [which did not come from your own pockets like the good Samaritan's] and go out to play god by giving to others and soaking up the praise and adulation of the people.
This is all an ego trip, as the very same support could be done anonymously through UCG for its brethren, instead of personally by one man to gain popularity for his supposed personal ”goodness”.
This same man, despises the teachings of Christ and sues those not bowing before him, bearing huge grudges; unforgiving, mean spirited and vicious towards anyone not looking to HIM!
This is the man who fired many in WCG for questioning the Tkach agenda, and seriously upbraided and attacked many others to support that apostasy; who now takes the NAZI position and says: “I have nothing to apologize for, I was only doing my job”
UCG is now approaching a key GCE meet in May. Several positions are opening up on the CoE and Denny has promised that he will step down as president after his term expires this year; it is rumoured that he is changing his mind and will remain president.
The last of those loyal to the present fundamental beliefs people, could be out of the CoE in the May elections. Denny, Kubik and Webber are all very close, and together could soon be in complete control of UCG
Vic Kubik is the most influential [powerful] man in UCG as head of the ministry, and because of his carefully built image. Robin Webber, another major Tkach supporter, now has the Chairmanship through the next year.
