Guest Comment: Satan’s 10 Point Plan to Corrupt the World – by Jenny Lamb (Cyprus)
1 John 5:19 The Whole World in under the influence of the evil one
Alice Bailey was born in Manchester UK in 1880. She became a Christian missionary in India, married a fellow missionary and moved to America. The marriage was very unhappy and they divorced. She rejected Christianity and became a theosophist. She received and wrote down occult information from a spirit called ?the Tibetan?. Alice later married Foster Bailey, a 32 Degree Freemason and together they developed the Arcane School of theosophy. She devised a 10 point plan to bring about the end of Judaeo-Christianity. She died in 1949.
1. Take God and prayer out of the Education System.
2. Reduce parental authority over their children. Promote excessive child rights. Abolish corporal punishment. Teachers are the agents of implementation.
3. Destroy the Judaeo-Christian family structure. Free people from the concept of marriage for life. Make divorce easy and legal.
4. Promote sexual promiscuity ? use the advertising industry.
5. If sex is free then use abortion and make it easy.
6. Make homosexuality an alternative lifestyle.
7. Debase art and make it run mad. Use the media to promote and change mindset.
8. Create an Interfaith Movement.
9. Get governments to make and pass all the laws to facilitate these projects.
10. Get the church to endorse the changes.
As we look at life now it is obvious that her plan has been very successful. In the 1940s the government passed an Education Act to provide free education for all children in Britain, including a daily assembly with a hymn, a prayer and a Bible reading. Christianity is now taught as just one of various comparative religions, such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
Evolution is taught in schools and universities as fact, and it is considered extremely na?ve to believe in the Bible and the creation of the universe by God Himself, rather than by random chance. In a recent development – in order to receive government funding – even church schools must sign a legal agreement that they will teach evolution and not teach creation.
A nation is judged by the way it treats its poor and vulnerable, the elderly, the widows and orphans, and those who are sick and in need of help. Before the 1967 abortion act, abortion was already legal in cases where the mother?s life was in danger if the pregnancy continued, or through violent rape, etc. Since 1967 over 15 million babies have been aborted legally in the UK ? more people than in the original holocaust of World War II. It is like a form of silent acceptable genocide of our own population.
A National Day of Prayer was called at times of crisis, but now to call a specifically Christian National Day of Prayer would cause huge criticism from the multi-faith society that we have become. After the 2005 London bombings, with the encouragement of Archbishop Rowan Williams, the government agreed to allow 6 Sharia Law Courts to be set up in England, with the headquarters being based in Nuneaton. There are now 85 Sharia Law Courts in the UK where people can go and have legal settlements instead of being under the British legal system.
Jesus said, “When you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.? Luke 21:31 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.? Matthew 5:44 ?Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.? John 14:26-27.
The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the God of Israel. Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their God. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for that breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.
Shabbat Shalom …… David & Josie

1. Remove Yassar Arafat Street INN News March 5th
Interior Minister Aryeh Deri (Shas) on Sunday sent a letter to the Jatt Regional Council ordering them to remove the sign naming one of their streets after arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat. Wounded IDF combat soldier Liran Baruch discovered the street name after Waza showed it on a map of the region. Baruch said, “A friend of mine who was on his way to reserve duty near the village noticed on Waze [a GPS navigation application] a street named after Yasser Arafat. Arafat murdered more Israelis than the number of Americans Bin Laden murdered.” Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “I spoke with Interior Minister Aryeh Deri (Shas) about the matter, and Deri said the Interior Ministry had not approved the street’s name. The PM said that “Israel will not allow a street to be names after Arafat, and we will work to remove the street sign.” Lets pray that the PA stops glorifying Arafat and all other terrorists
2. US State Department Silent on New Israeli Travel Ban INN News March 8th
A new law that would ban entry to Israel of foreigners who publicly support boycotts of the Jewish state is Israel?s ?sovereign decision,? a State Department spokesperson said last week. In a media briefing on 8 March 2017, Mark Toner said that while the United States opposes boycotts of Israel, we also support firmly freedom of expression. That said, ? this is a sovereign decision for Israel to make regarding its borders.? The law, adopted 6 March 2017 by the Knesset, bans entry to foreigners who publicly call for boycotting the Jewish state. According to the new law, the ban applies to any foreigner ?who knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel that, given the content of the call and the circumstances in which it was issued, has a reasonable possibility of leading to the imposition of a boycott. It includes those who urge limiting boycotts to areas under Israeli control but not yet annexed, such as the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. Lets pray that Israel continues to take a strong stand against all of its enemies
3. Jordanian Killer of 7 Israeli Schoolgirls Released from Prison Ynet News March 12th
Ahmad Daqamseh, who murdered seven Israeli girls in a massacre in 1997, was released from Jordanian prison early Sunday 12 March 2017 after having served a 20-year sentence. On 13 March 1997 Daqamseh who at the time was a 26-year-old soldier in the Jordanian army, opened fire at a group of 7th and 8th grade schoolgirls from a school in Beit Shemesh, who were on a class field trip. Seven girls were murdered in the attack and six others were wounded. A military court deemed him mentally unstable and sentenced him to life in prison, which in Jordan typically means 25 years. Recently, a Jordanian government spokesman confirmed that Daqamseh was to be released when he had finished serving his sentence. March 13th marked 20 years since the mass murder. Lets pray that this brutal murderer will not return to his former vocation as often happens when terrorists are released from prison.
4. Iran Has Set Up Rocket Factories in Lebanon
Iran has established rocket factories in Lebanon that are under the full control of the Hezbollah terror group, a top Iranian general told a Kuwaiti newspaper. Citing one of the deputy heads of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, the al-Jarida newspaper reported that Iran in recent months has established factories for manufacturing both rockets and firearms in Lebanon. The report came just days after Iran?s Defense Minister said that Hezbollah is now capable of producing rockets that can hit any part of Israel. The new factories, said to be located underground, have reportedly been in operation for the past three months. The manufacturing sites are located some 50 meters (160 feet) underground, according to the report, and are protected by multiple layers of defenses from potential Israeli aerial bombardment. No facility produces rockets in their entirety; rather, each site produces separate parts that are then collected and assembled into complete rockets. The new factories would mark a dramatic upgrade in Hezbollah?s ability to acquire more, and more precise, rockets than ever before. Please pray that these rocket factories will be exposed and destroyed

The visit is the sixth such initiative to bring Arabic-language media representatives to Israel and the first time the delegation includes journalists and bloggers from Algeria and Tunisia.

7. Israeli Court Rules in Favour Of Messianic Couple Israel Today News March 6th
An Israeli court has ordered that the owners of the Vasilio wedding hall must pay 10,000 shekels ($2,500) to a Messianic couple for refusing to rent the hall to them for their wedding after the couple said they wanted to read New Testament scriptures under the hupa. The couple said that an employee at the wedding hall quoted the kashrut supervisor as saying that a wedding with New Testament scriptures ?bordered on terrorism? and that ?Messianic Judaism is idolatry.? While ruling in the couple?s favor, the judge said she awarded them a low amount because the wedding hall representative they dealt with was inexperienced and because the couple rejected a settlement and apology offered by the hall. The couple disputes the claim that ?the representative was new and inexperienced and accidentally contacted the kosher overseer of the hall who made it clear that accepting the request would result in denial of the kosher certificate of the hall.? They claim it is inaccurate since the representative is the manager?s brother and because they spoke with him twice, the first time in person and the second time over the phone to confirm they could not hold their wedding there. They claimed discrimination, insult and humiliation. They also feel this was an opportunity to represent the body of Messiah and stand up for their rights, to create a precedent for future cases and also to reflect the nature of Messiah throughout the process. Lets give thanks to the LORD for this victory for the Believers
