The Story of Adam Was Not About Dirt After All

I met Pastor Mark Biltz in June of 2007. One month prior to meeting Mark Biltz I heard a voice ask, "Learn why I was Jewish" I took that single experience to be a GOD thing, and an answer to a prayer that I had made in 1998. In 1998 I asked GOD to show to me who He really was. I never expected to hear a voice ask me to go check it out myself.

I met Mark Biltz Pastor of El Shaddai Ministries in June at Convergence Northwest Conference hosted by Tani Zarelli and her then, State Senator husband, Joe or Joseph Zarelli. It was here that I received a "Download" of information that removed me from a Christian paradigm into an Hebrew Paradigm of the Bible. One moment I was a Christian learning about Jesus and the next moment I was a person flooded with ISRAEL rather than church! Pastor Mark Biltz provided the catalyst that would become a snowball roll back through the centuries. My snowball is growing bigger, and bigger, larger & larger as I unfurl the emotional dysfunction of learning about GOD without cultural integrity, certainly lacking too the influences of ancient Israel (Jeremiah 16:19)

Nine years ago I was returned to the concepts and construct of what God is doing through Israel for centuries as a Christian. The more that I connected to the story of Israel the more visible GOD became. The more visible God became the less important virtually all theological identifications were.
This is a very, very difficult thing to communicate to the Christian world because it tends to expose a problem within Christianity. Nevertheless, this is what I experienced and for nine years my entire world view has experienced paradigm shift, after paradigm shift, back through the centuries always pointing me to 'What God is doing through, with, and because of why he created Israel.'
The entire Bible is a record of the relationship between God and Israel.
Christianity is essentially born from that relationship....less the antisemitic, monstrosities of certain doctrines.....
I recommend these books. I am currently reading The Lost World of Scripture having read the other two
Now I am learning the patterns and methods of the Creator from a different lens whereby I can see that Adam and Eve were not the first people. I can see that Adam was appointed to be a Temple priest who had to have a wife who was a virgin (Leviticus 13) I can see a Temple with a Holy of Holies or Sacred Space (Midst of the Garden) and the desecration of Adam allowing Satan into the Midst s of the Garden, possibly at Yom Kippur?)
Currently, on this journey, I am filtering through the work of Professor John Walton who is doing something unbeknownst to him that further answers the prayer of 1998. Professor John Walton is putting reason back into common sense. In other words, the practical, often, overlooked reality that a giant hand did not place Adam into the garden can be revisited based on "Function and Purpose" (as opposed to ethereal, abstract, supernatural hooey!) God appointed men and women to do something. This can also be applied to Adam and Eve. Could they too have been set apart?
Professor John Walton Wheaton College

Professor John Walton offers another game changer, another paradigm shift, another reasoned approach based on the cultural integrity of the hour, the day, the month, and the year Moses wrote about this history!

I am now tumbling all the way into the Kingdom rather than stumbling......Stay tuned! There is more to come concerning Professor John Walton (Click Here)

Mother's Don't Murder Their Unborn Child, Murderers Do


Exodus 20:1-14

And God spoke all these words, saying:
I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep My commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work; 10but the seventh day is a sabbath unto the LORD thy God, in it thou shalt not do any manner of work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day; wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
THOU SHALT NOT MURDER
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house; thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Breaking the Laws of God has consequences. Why on this earth do you think criminal behavior is punished? Is this a GOD concept or a fallen man concept?
The women who marched on Washington in support of murdering unborn children according to the laws of fallen men cannot experience the joy of who GOD created when he created all of them. The very reason for their birth according to GOD ALMIGHTY is destroyed when they destroy life!

GallBladder Removal, Welcome to 2017

Red & White Hearts  
Michele, my wife has not had a very good new year thus far. We knew that her gallbladder was having issues going on a year. We were encouraged to try natural juicing, eating healthier etc, etc. What we did not realize was that her gallbladder was impacted with approximately 35 stones! Her doctor advised removal as soon as possible. Michele was scheduled a week later for surgery! On January 6, 2017

A complication arose while home recovering. Michele began to experience a debilitating pain in her right shoulder. (Michele is left handed) The pain was so severe Michele simply cried every time she had to move her arm The doctors were guessing about what was causing this pain.

I am happy to share that as of this post, Michele is doing much, much better! The speculation about a roving gas bubble within her diaphragm, communicating to her nervous system, which in turn was telling her brain, to broadcast pain to the shoulder will probably never be understood by this blog writer/husband? This is what the doctor's told to us."๐Ÿ‘€"

I was quite surprised when the doctor handed to me these pictures
I am posting these pictures of her actual gallbladder before and after because, my wife said she felt like a ball was in her side. The pictures spoke volumes to me. Well, the impacted gallbladder prior to surgery looked like a sack of potatoes! I was quite surprised to see what was causing the numerous problems that my wife was experiencing. This little sack was responsible for nausea, lower back problems, lack of appetite, lack of sleep, irritability, claustrophobic, and weakness.

Well, I am happy to say that Michele was sewing over the last couple of days. Her work was even recognized by Polyvore.com . I am glad to see her business on Etsy allowing her a little bit of distraction from all that she has endured for the last several months.. It's also good to have her mending and getting back to a more normal routine.

Michele is still healing from laparoscopic entry incisions and not able to use her right arm completely. She has to move her arm in order to avoid another issue that could take hold so sewing is actually now become therapy

Check out her offerings on Etsy Click Here Consider purchasing something for someone who may be looking for exactly what my wife is producing...Go ahead, make her day!๐Ÿ‘Œ

Three Shows are completed check us out!

Wednesday Nights Live....the following are the archives which you can find on our Pod-O-Matic site



And...I Am Writing A Book Too!


I have a lot of activity currently going on in my world. What I take the most pleasure in doing is promoting useful information and or people who serve the Kingdom of God and who support what God is doing through ISRAEL.

I also have several areas in my personal life that are challenging at the moment as well. My wife has been through a tumultuous start of the New Year physically which has been hard to watch her endure. Beginning next week, I will be managing Nathan's company for three weeks while he heads to Israel.

I also am setting up the PODCASTING for archiving the shows (RETURNING TO EDEN) that Dinah Dye and I are doing. I do the editing which is time consuming but, I am getting better at doing this.

My friend, Pastor Jason Swofford has developed an on-line study course which I am promoting...It is good to have a method of study when reading the Bible!
I am heading to Peru, managing the Fundly page...asking for your financial support to simply take with me for the benefit of Restoring Children International...

I am thrilled concerning the launch of Israel TV or ITVN

As always, I will continue to fight against the abuse and misrepresentation of what GOD created when he made humanity...[Namely racism, bigotry, and antisemitism WITHIN the body of Messiah].....

I have a lot of information on my blog and website concerning all of my recent activity

The Big Problem With Bible Study Guides

Posted on January 16, 2017by Pilgrim's Light

By the title you may think that I don’t like Bible study guides. That is not the case. I think they are great. However, if you just use Bible study guides to study the Bible then you could be missing something very important. The ability to study the Bible for yourself.

Bible Study guides do not teach a person how to study the Bible. Bible study guides show a person what to study, they ask questions, they guide. The only way to learn how to study the Bible is to learn a method. There are a lot of good methods out there so pick one and get stared!

Not moderate; not radical: simply Islam by Victor Sharpe


source: http://canadafreepress.com/article/not-moderate-not-radical-simply-islam


I remember several years ago reading the words of the late and much missed Dr. Conor Cruise O’Brien. The good doctor was referring to the erroneous belief that there is such a thing as moderate Islam set against radical Islam.

This eminent statesman known as “the Cruiser” was one of the most remarkable scholars, historians, authors, intellectuals and politicians that modern Ireland ever produced.

O’Brien who was born in Dublin in 1917 and who died in 2008, declared that for the past two centuries Islam has been dominated by the “House of War” (dar al-Islam) which calls for unremitting warfare against all non-Muslims.

He pointed out that it is intolerable to Muslims that Islam is not ascendant enough and that the remedy is jihad, not the struggle for inner peace that Muslim apologists falsely claim, but rather the violent struggle against non-believers which is a religious obligation imposed by Mohammad upon all Muslims.

“Islam is an ideology wrapped in a religion”

O’Brien’s view publicized in Britain’s liberal newspaper, the Independent, some twenty one years ago was not well received then, just as liberals and the ossified but vicious Left today still refuse to accept its reality. His words would certainly be derided by the apologist for Islam in Chief; the man who infested the Oval Office of the White House during his last eight baleful years.

Dr. O’Brien was adamant that it was dangerous to talk about radical Islam for it falsely implied that there is some other kind of Islam; one which is well disposed and tolerant to non-Muslims. He baldly stated that there is no other kind and that Islam is “universalist, triumphant and highly political.”

Winston Churchill himself much earlier had written that, “Islam is an ideology wrapped in a religion.”

Want more proof? This from the words of the increasingly Islamist and dictatorial leader of Turkey, Tayip Recip Erdogan? Here is what he said as far back as 2009 when interviewed on Kanal TV’s Arena program about suggesting that there is both radical and/or moderate Islam.

“˜These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

Islam does not mean peace; it means submission - not to the will of the people as in a democracy - but to the will of Allah. The same Islam which rages today in hideous terrorism around the world and in America is the same which swept across the then known world from the 7th century onwards.

The many disputes and conflicts in the Middle East and throughout much of the world in which Islam is present are both territorial and theological

Mohammed showed the way in how he wanted his beliefs imposed upon all non-believers of Islam. He treated with the utmost cruelty the Jewish tribes in Arabia who held steadfast to their ancient faith and refused to accept his new Islam. He had all the men beheaded and the women and children sold into slavery.

He meted out similar horrors to Christian tribes while his followers in subsequent years carried his message far and wide with a sword in one hand and a Koran in the other. Are not the horrors today in Syria, Iraq and Yemen those very same horrors?

The many disputes and conflicts in the Middle East and throughout much of the world in which Islam is present are both territorial and theological. The conflict between Israel and the Arab world, for instance, has its origins in the Bible when the Amalekites, Moabites, Edomites, and hordes of other Arabs warred against Israel. We see their genocidal intent in Psalm 83, when we see in verses 4 and 5 their wish to destroy ancient Israel:

“Come and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee …”

Now fast forward to January 15, 2017 and eerily a pro-Arab conference in Paris attended by 70 nations was attempting yet again to “cut off the name of Israel from being a nation.”

This infamy followed the UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry engineered, implying that the Jewish and Christian holy places in Jerusalem were illegal and that all the sites should be ruled by Islam and by the fraudulent Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.

Dr. O’Brien knew too well how hollow the belief was that the United Nations was a bastion of morality and he would have been horrified by Res. 2334. He famously once said that, “You can safely appeal to the UN in the comfortable certainty that it will let you down.”

Over the centuries in Islam, there developed basic ideas, which are critical to understanding the Middle East conflict today but especially the Israel-Palestinian dispute. One is that all lands are to be subjected to Allah and that once a land is thus subjected, it must forever remain in Allah’s dominion. Thus jihad (Holy War) becomes an urgent necessity in order to reclaim all lands which have been lost to Islam.

This, of course, is the situation with modern Israel today. But it is also the same condition for other territories lost to Islam including, Spain, Portugal, Sicily, parts of France, Greece, the Balkans and southern Russia, which all fell at one time under the yoke of Islamic occupation and Sharia law.

In a sense, the rebirth of Israel undermines the credibility of Islam. The Muslims are obligated by Allah’s injunction to wage relentless war and terror against Israel. Thus any territory Israel gives away in the hope of appeasing the Muslim world - the so-called land for peace and the two-state-solution - is a tragic and fatal delusion. Even if Israel was reduced to one square city block in Jerusalem, the Muslim and Arab world would still wage endless war and terror against it.

Some well-meaning Christians and Jews have been lulled into believing that Christianity, Judaism and Islam all happily worship the same God. But the nature and character of the Islamic god, Allah, is not the same as God who is revealed in the Bible and who is worshipped by Jews and Christians.

Connor Cruise O’Brien back in 1995 tried to warn the world that what is happening is not some aberrant phenomenon called radical Islam, but a revival of authentic Islam itself.

Tragically too many people in government, the media and within many houses of worship still remain under a self-imposed veritable veil of deception.

Developing RETURNING TO EDEN (our new show)

Hello (Jeff here,)
I entertained a discussion from a close friend and probably my number one financial supporter (We always need financial supporters, lol) My friend shared that he was trying to follow our 3rd show but struggled through much of it due to what he stated was "No specific point made" In considering his and possibly others who may be in agreement...Both Dinah and I would invite you all to consider our getting use to co-hosting as well as finding our comfort zone [as we share a ton of information, insights and propositions.] We are not cloning information but rather presenting information unfamiliar to most. We have a lot of ground to cover. Just considering that Adam was a High Priest, set apart, [set apart from what or from who you might ask(?)] is two, three or perhaps four shows in development.

We felt a need to spend a few shows in the beginning calling to your attention why the need to let down your filters (We all have them) concerning how YOU/we know the scriptures. Returning to Eden is about how they knew the Elohim of Israel based on the cultures, the societies and the structure, of how those people existed....Stay tuned (and thanks for following our broadcasts)




1st show on Messianic Lamb Radio Wednesday 1-04-2017

2nd show on Messianic Lamb Radio Wednesday 1/13/2017

Email RTE at returningtoeden2017@gmail.com

To archive all of our shows we will need to use either Podcast or Sound Cloud...
both have a cost, always a cost!
THANK YOU ABBA Father for everything!

TWO STATE and FINAL SOLUTION..(synonymous terms for 70 years)

Imagine dividing New York City...Giving a great big portion of the city to ISIS and the rest to the New Yorkers....Would you also think this a peaceful solution? Would ISIS agree? Probably the two dumbest, most stupidest,  most ignorant blunders of humanity are mocking Noah and steadfast in dividing Israel. I cannot think of anything that compares beyond these two

An email from my friend Victor Sharp:



Friends:
Like Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover, who lead the wonderful Women in Green movement, I too start worrying when there appears so much that appears potentially good for the Jewish state.

What will Bibi Netanyahu propose to President elect, Trump. Will he be adamant that Judea and Samaria – our very biblical and ancestral heartland – must finally be restored to Eretz Yisrael: the Land of Israel?

Or will he snatch defeat from victory and dash once again our millennial hopes by agreeing to the cursed Two-State-Solution, which is for Israel a deadly fate waiting with all its horror as was that other euphemism: the Final Solution?
A warning has indeed been sounded and we ignore it at our peril.

Victor Sharpe


On the obligation to sound a warning
What is the prime minister planning to tell the president-elect about his vision for areas A,B and C? Is it going to be concessions or is Israel going to benefit from having a friend in the White House?

Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover, 11/01/17 00:09



Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover

Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover are co-Chairwomen of Women in Green (Women for Israel's Tomorrow).

When things are too good, we start worrying. It's like riding a bicycle – if it’s easy, it means that we are going downhill.

When one of the prophets of the Left, author A. B. Yehoshua, and even one of the designers of the Oslo Accords, Yossi Beilin, muse aloud about the concept of “sovereignty,” something must be cooking in the policy pot. When Prime Minister Netanyahu speaks of “two states” when talking to President-elect Trump, a big red light goes on. The prime minister is not a political neophyte and has a good many impressive achievements to his credit such as the battle against the Iranian nuclear deal and preventing the establishment of a Palestinian state, so what’s going on now?

"When one of the prophets of the Left, author A. B. Yehoshua, and even one of the designers of the Oslo Accords, Yossi Beilin, muse aloud about the concept of “sovereignty,” something must be cooking in the policy pot."

In a discussion with A. B. Yehoshua, President Reuven Rivlin spoke about the matter of sovereignty in Area C and his interlocutor, the author, was convinced. Yossi Beillin also says that sovereignty in Area C does not bother him as long as the demographic matter is taken care of. Minister Bennett speaks of sovereignty in Area C along with autonomy for the Arabs in Areas A and B (without Israeli sovereignty). But instead of being pleased and maybe even beginning to dance the hora ecstatically, we are concerned.

The gut feeling is that they are going in the direction of two states! They are planning sovereignty in Area C (minus) and plan to dismember the other parts of the Land of Israel. They plan to surrender Nablus (Shechem), Jenin, Ramallah and more, surrendering the vision of an undivided Israel and surrounding the State of Israel with the Hamastan that would arise in Areas A and B. (And remember the Gazan Hamastan waiting to attack us from the South).

This gut feeling that has been with us for the past several weeks has become much more pronounced in light of the words of commentator Ariel Kahane, published in last week’s Hebrew Makor Rishon newspaper. In that article, Kahane claims that according to his sources, the prime minister will initiate a plan for the application of very minimal Israeli sovereignty (only Ma’ale Adumim and a few of the settlement blocs), and the Arabs will get less than a state in all of Areas A and B and even parts of Area C.

We must begin sounding an alarm against this plan immediately and ensure that this will not be the plan that is presented to President Trump. We have waited many long years for a supportive president in the White House, one who is willing to hear about the application of sovereignty in the entire area, and when this actually seems to have come true, is it going to be Israel that offers to concede parts of Judea and Samaria, the cradle of our homeland? Can there be anything more ironic?

You can already hear the voices saying: “Be thankful for Area C. That’s what you wanted" and "Israel will be redeemed gradually…” or “It has taken 50 years until we arrived at a consensus on Area C. Why are you ruining the party?”

We are not ruining the party, but we are not celebrating either. Under the guise of a nationalist policy, they are surrendering the vision of the Land of Israel! Agreed, we must apply sovereignty in Area C but in parallel, we must apply autonomy under the government of Israel in Areas A and B. True, this is difficult, complicated and complex, but that should not cause us to give up and withdraw. An erosion, G-d forbid, of the principle of clinging to the Land of Israel in Areas A and B could easily lead to surrender in Area C as well.

And lest we forget, who was it that divided the area and assigned the letters (A,B,C) and degrees of control, irresponsibly and without any real thought of the future? It is the same people who were responsible for the delusional vision of the Oslo Accords, the accords against which we very justly fought. Today, a great majority of the people in Israel see Oslo as a failed policy. Can it be that now, it is the Right that will adopt that same misguided division of the Land?

To those who would call us “delusional”, we say: those very same words were hurled at us five and six years ago, when we began the Sovereignty Campaign. No one believed that the Israeli Right could present a vision of its own, a Zionist, ethical policy vision, but it happened even more quickly than we could have guessed. The Right is no longer only yelling about what not to do, but knows what should be done. It has a direction and that plan has been placed on the political table to great effect.

One of the key questions that arises in the discussion about sovereignty is the status of the Arabs on the day after. This indeed, is no simple matter, but there are various suitable solutions to examine on the legal, demographic, social and political levels. Among other things, we must examine the option of residency that has been tried for the Arabs of Jerusalem, the option of encouraging voluntary emigration, the option of granting citizenship similar to the Druze, after testing and checking for loyalty to the state. There are other possible solutions as well.

We look at issues in a sober and responsible manner. It is very apparent to us that the application of sovereignty in Areas A and B might well occur after a period of time, but we, ourselves, have no mandate to neglect the mission to hold on to these areas as well. Already in the present phase it is possible to engage in deep discussions and draw the practical lines for a long-range plan for building and holding these areas. Much has been said about the capabilities of the Jewish mind. Now it will be tested. Public figures such as Ze’ev Hever (Zambish) should design a plan for Areas A and B. Minister Yisrael Katz, the government bulldozer, should plan roads, trains and airports for the entire expanse of our Land. Minister Elkin should plan for the environmental quality in the entire area.

In our ears the words of Rav Tzvi Yehuda continue to resound: “Where is our Shechem… Where is our Jericho… Where is our land on the far side of the River Jordan… Where is every single clod of earth? Each and every part of G-d’s Land, can we surrender any millimeter of it?...”. Our role is to respond to the entire world: No, honored rabbi, we have not forgotten. We have no intention of capitulating to the voices of the weak who claim “we cannot”; rather, in the spirit of Joshua ben Calev, we declare "We are well able to overcome" and "let us go up at once and possess it."
