that understand among the people shall instruct many.”
They That Understand
A recent poll conducted by Reuters shows that “nearly 15 percent of people worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime, and 10 percent think the Mayan calendar could signify that it will happen this year.”
"Whether they think it will come to an end through the hands of God or a natural disaster or a political event, whatever the reason, 1 in 7 think the end of the world is coming," said Keren Gottfried, research manager at Ipsos Public Affairs, which conducted the poll for Reuters. The figure is 22 percent in the US.
“About 1 in 10 people globally also said they were experiencing fear or anxiety about the impending end of the world in 2012.”
If the poll is correct, then over 600 million people around the world are experiencing fear and anxiety with over 60 million in the US alone. Could this be leading to the fulfillment of Luke 21:26 which we have quoted in previous posts?
These poor people simply do not know the truth that is in God's Word, the Bible, hence our referencing the opening scripture of Daniel 11:33, “They that understand among the people shall instruct many.”
The second article below, “A Call to Everyone in the World to Send a Letter to the Pope”
published by “The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement” is another example of the importance of our need to understand Biblical prophecy, both Old and New Testaments.
It is interesting and informative to note that many of the scriptures quoted by “The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement” in support of their cause, are also used by Christians to show where their Messiah will reign. They are quoting these scriptures to show the need to return the temple artifacts, including the Menorah, which were taken by Titus, from the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD.
The artifacts were transported to Rome where they now are supposed to reside in the Vatican's almost innumerable archives.
All of this is in preparation for the rebuilding of the Third Temple where the coming Messiah King of Israel will reign.
The Christian Messiah is of course, Jesus Christ. With “ The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement“, their Messiah would have to be someone else, since they do not accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah.
The question that remains is, who would be the occupier of this Third Temple? (See our article “The Third Temple” and also the numerous material published under the studies section on this web site concerning the Third Temple.)
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)
So the first occupier according to scripture?
Who is he? Son of perdition? The antichrist!
Raw Reports, Nuclear Threat from Germany (updated)
GERMANS GIVE THESE OUT LIKE PARTY FAVORS, NUKES INCLUDED IT SEEMS
6 Decades of Deception
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
I will keep this short as possible. A single nuclear weapon has "gone missing" as of last week, one of four missing but this one "more missing" than the others.
The Thames Valley Police, famous for their fictional representations in the Colin Dexter detective novels, detained a high ranking government security officer, department to remain unnamed, at the behest of what we are told is the Home Secretary.
A nuclear weapon that wasn't supposed to exist, a single 500 kiloton hydrogen bomb, one of four being tracked, was seen being loaded at the German port of Bemerhaven, Germany.
The groups assisting in what we were informed was a counter-terrorism surveillance operation were the American NSA, British MI 6, the Office of Naval Intelligence and the British Royal Navy. The "device" was loaded onto a Germany built "Dolphin" submarine and left the harbour doing 7.5 knots.
The submarine disappeared while being tracked by every sophisticated device NATO seems to be able to own or borrow.
At least one of those from among the listed agencies was arrested by the local police force in Oxford, their electronic surveillance gear siezed, were confined for 12 hours despite being above arrest and detention as a senior NATO intelligence officer.
Attempts to track the sub in the busy harbour were in vain and it is unknown what the nationality of the crew were or the destination, whether the UK, the US or some place in the Middle East.
What we do know is that Germany and other NATO nations, in a highly disputed exception to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, had held 182 such weapons until all had supposedly been given back to the United States in 2005.
We now know this to be untrue. There are several possible scenarios:
Germany is a nuclear power in violation of international treaties and both Germany and the US are lying
The German government is in violation of international treaties and is selling or transfering nuclear weapons to unknown third parties
Terrorists have stolen a nuclear weapon that Germany was holding illegally
Germany is involved in a terror plot aimed at a third party, Iran, the United Kingdom or the United States
The submarine in question may or may not be one Germany is giving to Israel, this one with a "special enhancement" which, as we had questioned earlier, might be used against Iran, the United Kingdom or United States.
We know the British government at some levels, some departments, are aware of this action and are responding with retribution against their own intelligence services. This seems to be an indication that some authority within Britain seems to have gone rogue, certainly the Thames Valley Police, possibly the Home Office and we can't help but want to take a long hard look at David Cameron and his many mysterious meetings with Rupert Murdoch, the "not very Australian" ultra-nationalist/Likudist Israeli who stands somewhat accused of endless criminal acts or perhaps not.
Nobody in Britain actually knows.
Is someone planning to blow something up somewhere? Are these just simply Germany boys on a lark, stolen submarine, borrrowed illegal nuclear weapon, kind of a prank?
Then again, we have the Bush administration. Assurances were made that all such weapons had been out of German hands 7 years ago. We now have direct evidence, eyewitnesses, that indicate that the US failed to follow the provisions of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that it is using as a pretext to threaten Iran with violations of.
Oddly, Israel never signed the treaty and is, by conventional standards, considered a "rogue state."
A fuller accounting indicates that the warheads may not be American but were of Soviet design. We know the number to be four.
One has been traced to a location inside the London itself. Other locations for this one are likely New York, Lower Manhattan for a December delivery, tuned down to 100 kt, perhaps to pass off as another plane crash. Mombasa and other African ports are on the lists as well. There is a very nasty controversy between US intelligence agencies on information sharing as to this issue. As this is an actual operation, not a "rumor," attempts to keep secrets or mislead just aren't going to work anymore, as this article has proven.
Weapons of this type are generally located through use of specialized aircraft, in this case, the Boeing Sentinal E3D. These are highly modified 707 aircraft. The British have 7 of these operating out of RAF Waddington. They were placed on "mechanical fault standown" on April 14. Who would have thought all these planes were preparing to discombobulate?

We find this "coincidence" rather curious and call for an official inquiry into the accidental and sudden failure of Britain's most valuable air assets.
The individuals and sources of this story will, at their request, not be credited. If anyone out there if familiar with the radiation signature of an aging Soviet 1/2 megaton nuclear warhead, we would be glad to print that information, hoping the appropriate authorities might stumble upon it here.
Additionally, if anyone spots a Dolphin submarine, please give us a ring also, same reasons.
A Call to Everyone in the World to Send a Letter to the Pope
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement sent a letter to Pope Benedict XVI in Rome requesting him to return to Israel -- without delay -- the Holy Temple Menorah, the vessels, and the treasures that were stolen by the Romans and taken to Rome when they destroyed the Holy Second Temple in Jerusalem in the year 70 ce. These Temple vessels will be used by the priests of Israel in the Holy Third Temple.
We are working intensively so that the Holy Third Temple will soon be built in the lifetime of our generation. By this act we are answering the prophetic call of the G d of Israel to His People to rebuild His Holy House on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem now, as Israel is experiencing the climax of the time of redemption in the Holy Land of Israel.
We have sent to the Pope a call from the G d and People of Israel to respond without delay. After the destruction of the First Holy Temple by the Babylonians in the year 586 bce, the Persian King obeyed the call of G d upon him and returned the vessels of the First Holy Temple which Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, stole when he destroyed the First Temple in Jerusalem. King Cyrus encouraged the Jewish people to rebuild the Holy Temple of the G d of Israel in Jerusalem. He even set free the Jewish people from their captivity and sent them back to the Land of Israel. The G d of Israel richly blessed him for this:
"Thus says the L rd thy redeemer....Who says to Cyrus, my shepherd, who shall perform all my will: saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be rebuilt; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid....Thus says the L rd to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held, that I may subdue nations before him, and loose the loins of kings; that I may open before him doors and gates which shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the mountainous places level: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the L rd, who call thee by thy name, am the G-D of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel my elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the L rd, and there is none else, there is no G-D beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the L rd, and there is none else...." (Isaiah 44:24,28; 45:1-6)
Everyone in the world is called to also send a letter to the Pope asking him to return the Holy Temple Menorah, the vessels, and the treasures to Israel without delay. Please ask your friends, family, and acquaintances to also send such a letter of request to the Pope. We have included our original letter below to the Pope for your information. The address for Pope Benedict XVI appears at the top of our letter below.
Any person who writes a letter to the Pope about this matter will be blessed by G d and will have an important part in the historical redemption and rebuilding of the end-time Holy Temple of the G d of Israel in Jerusalem. If possible, please also send us a copy of your letter to the Pope to ouor address below.
Thank you so much and may the G d of Israel bless you richly.

Re: The return of the Holy Temple Menorah, Vessels and Treasures to Jerusalem
Pope Benedict XVI,
A Call to Pope Benedict XVI from the G d and People of Israel to Return Without Delay the Holy Temple Menorah, the Vessels and the Treasures that are presently located in the Vatican, to G d's People Israel in Jerusalem.
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement in Jerusalem, which is dedicated to the rebuilding of the Holy Third Temple on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the lifetime of this generation that is now experiencing the prophetic end-time redemption of the People of Israel in the Promised Holy Land given by G d to Israel in an eternal covenant, is calling you to answer the call of the G d and People of Israel to return to the State of Israel, with no delay, the Jewish Temple Menorah and other Temple Vessels and Treasures that were taken away to Rome by the Romans in the year 70 ce after they destroyed the Holy Temple of G d in Jerusalem.
As you well know, in the year 70 ce the Roman Empire occupied Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G d and People of Israel, and the Land of Israel. They destroyed the Holy Temple of the G d of Israel on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem and demolished and burned the city of Jerusalem. They robbed and took away with them to Rome the seven-branched Holy Menorah and many other Holy Temple Vessels and Treasures used by the Jewish priesthood in the worship of the G d of Israel in the Holy Temple. Titus, who destroyed the Holy Temple and burned it, built his Triumphal Arch in Rome on which is depicted until today the Holy Menorah and other Temple Vessels carried to Rome by Jewish captives. Since this terrible event in the history of Israel and mankind, we know very well that the Menorah, the Vessels and the Treasures that were taken to Rome have remained in the vaults of the Vatican. Travelers and visitors to the Vatican throughout history have reported seeing them.
This is G d's timing to return these vessels to Israel, and you are called by the G d of Israel to return them with no delay to Jerusalem to be used in the Holy Third Temple that is soon to be rebuilt. Today the reestablishment of the Kingdom of G d and Israel by the G d of Israel is the most exciting fulfillment of G d's end-time prophecies and promises.
The climax of this prophetic time will be according to the Word of the G d of Israel with the rebuilding of His end-time Holy Temple on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem soon, in our lifetime, exactly as all the prophets of Israel prophesied:
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, 'Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the G d of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for from Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it." (Isaiah 2:2-4, Micah 4:1-4)
Israel is presently experiencing the fulfillment of all the last days and end-time redemptive promises of G d for His People Israel. The G d of Israel is rebuilding in these days, together with His Chosen People Israel, His Holy Kingdom in the Promised Holy Land that He gave to His People Israel in an eternal covenant. As we said before, the climax of this prophetic time is going to be the soon rebuilding of the Holy Temple of G d in Jerusalem by His People Israel exactly as it was prophesied by the prophets Isaiah, Micah and all the other prophets of Israel. The rebuilding of the Holy Temple of the G d of Israel by His People Israel will have a deep significance for all of mankind. Real peace for all the nations will come to pass only when Israel rebuilds G d's Holy Temple on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem and fulfills the end-time call of G d given to His People Israel: "Build Me a temple and I will dwell among you" (Exodus 25:8).
It is the time for you to return the Holy Temple Menorah, the Vessels and the Treasures to Israel with no delay to be used in the Holy Temple of G d that is soon to be built. Cyrus, the ancient Persian King obeyed the call of G d during the time of the redemption of the Jewish people after the destruction of the First Holy Temple and he returned the vessels from the First Temple that Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, robbed when he destroyed the First Holy Temple in Jerusalem in the year 586 bce. The G d of Israel blessed King Cyrus exactly as He promised to Abraham and His Seed Israel: "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you" (Genesis 12:3). King Cyrus was so blessed and appreciated by the G d of Israel for what he did that G d even called Cyrus "my Machiach" (in Hebrew: "my Anointed") (Isaiah 45:1-7). King Cyrus even encouraged the Jewish people to rebuild the House of G d in Jerusalem, set them free from their captivity and regathered them back to the Land of Israel (Ezra 1).
You are called by the G d of Israel to do what the great emperor Cyrus did in his time and you will be blessed and deeply appreciated for this by the G d of Israel. More than this, it will be for you the greatest privilege and considered as a major historical deed that no other Pope before you had the privilege to accomplish.
You are called to appreciate the major godly redemptive event that is taking place in the Holy Land of Israel at this very special time in the history of Israel and all of mankind. The prophet Zechariah in his prophecy described word-by-word the exciting godly event that is presently taking place in Israel. In the midst of his prophetic words is the rebuilding of the Holy Temple of the G d of Israel in Jerusalem where the G d of Israel will dwell again in the midst of His People Israel:
"Again the word of the L rd of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the L rd of hosts; I was zealous for Zion with great zeal, and I was zealous for her with a great fury. Thus says the L rd; I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called The city of truth; and the mountain of the L rd of hosts, The holy mountain. Thus says the L rd of hosts; Old men and old women shall yet again dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for the fullness of days. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets. Thus says the L rd of hosts; If it be marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, it will also be marvelous in my eyes, says the L rd of hosts. Thus says the L rd of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; and I will bring them in, and they will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and they will be my people, and I will be their G d, in truth and righteousness. Thus says the L rd of hosts; Let your hands be strong, you that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, who spoke on the day that the foundation of the house of the L rd of hosts was laid, saying that the temple might be built....Thus says the L rd of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: and the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to entreat the favor of the L rd, and to seek the L rd of hosts: I will go also. And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the L rd of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the L rd. Thus says the L rd of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men out of all the languages of the nations shall take hold, and shall seize the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that G d is with you." (Zechariah 8:1-9, 20-23)
In the year 1990 the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement dedicated and anointed a foundation stone for the Holy Third Temple to begin the process of the rebuilding of the House of the G d of Israel on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem and to fulfill the call of G d to His People Israel through the prophets Zechariah, Isaiah, Micah, Haggai and other prophets of Israel. This cornerstone was brought to Jerusalem during an exciting event and is waiting to be laid on the Holy Temple Mount through an historical decision by the Israeli Knesset and government in order to start the process of the rebuilding of the Holy Temple of G d. The Temple Mount Faithful Movement is doing a public campaign in Israel and all over the world to make it a reality in the lifetime of our generation.
We look forward to you answering this call of the G d and People of Israel with no delay and to return the Holy Menorah, Vessels and Treasures of the Holy Temple of the G d of Israel, that are presently in the Vatican, back to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the G d and People of Israel, so that they can be used in the services of the priests of Israel in the Holy Third Temple that is soon to be rebuilt on the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The entire world is waiting for you to answer this call of the G d and People of Israel with no delay. All of mankind will appreciate this historical event.
We look forward to your prompt reply.
Sincerely in the Name of the G d of Israel,
Gershon Salomon - Chairman, The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement
Lost budgie taken home after it recites entire address
A lost budgie was taken home after it recited its entire address in full to a police officer.
Fumie Takahashi is reunited with her pet budgerigar in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture. The bird escaped from her house in the city early on April 29 and was returned to her on May 2 after telling the police its owner's address, specifying the block and house number. Photo: Kyodo

The bird escaped from a house in the Sagamihara district of Yokohama on Sunday morning, Kyodo News reported, and made its way to the city centre. After finding its way into a hotel, it came to rest on the shoulder of one of the guests before it was apprehended.
The hotel handed the budgerigar over to police, who put it in a cage and transferred it to a nearby police station.
Despite giving no indications that it could talk, the bird suddenly piped up late on Tuesday night and began repeating its home address - which its owner had apparently drummed into the bird for just such an unlikely eventuality.
Specifying the address down to the number of the house and the block on which is stands, the bird enabled police to track down its 64-year-old owner.
"We had not expected his owner to be identified in this manner," one of the officers involved in the case said.
Until next week...keep on believing.
not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall
on the ground without your Father. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of
more value than many sparrows.
the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor
gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not
much better than they?”
(Matthew 10:29, 31 Matthew 6:26)
