From Eliyahu

Hello friends,

Through the last week or so our servers have been under attack by hackers. In fact, hacking attacks are pretty much constant on the internet for all websites. I'm glad to report our security measures prevented the hackers from getting any data from us, but the hackers did manage to bring down some of our websites for a while. We have mostly recovered from this by now, but we are still working to find and repair any remaining problems. I apologize for any inconvenience the attacks on our sites may have caused you or other visitors.

Happy Hanukkah!The hacking attacks are just another manifestation of the war between the darkness and the light that has been going on since the great deceiver began his infamous career many centuries ago. In fact, this war between darkness and light is the focus of the Hanukkah season, "the festival of lights" going on right now.

As you may know, Hanukkah celebrates a miracle following a revolt by the Jews against foreign rule in 168-165 B.C.. Antiochus IV Epiphanies, the Seleucid king, forbid the reading of the Torah and desecrated the Second Temple in Jerusalem. This was indeed a dark time for true worship that is prophetic of the reign of anti-messiah, soon to fall upon this generation. Back then the Jews rose up against the darkness, and eventually prevailed. However, the victorious rebels, led by Judah Maccabee (the Hammer) faced a problem rededicating the Temple: The Menorah needed to remain burning at all times, but there was only enough holy oil to last one night. Not to worry though. By a miracle the oil in the menorah kept burning for eight days straight! Indeed, this miracle emphasized a great victory of the light over the darkness. This reminds us that sometimes the darkness seems to be winning, but in the end the light is sure to prevail.

As a Messianic believer Hanukkah has another, even greater connection with light for me. It is the season when Mary "was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit" i.e. when the life of Y'shua Messiah was transferred from heaven into the womb of Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit and Messiah was conceived as a manchild in this earth.(Matthew 1:18)

The light of the world.By this amazing miracle the defeat of darkness was assured, as the true Light was about to come into the world! So many verses of Scripture assure us of this fact. Here are a few:

While I am in the world, I am the light of the world. John 9:5

In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. John 1:4-5

..seeing it is ELOHIM who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of ELOHIM in the face of YESHUA the Messiah. 2 Corinthians 4:6

Messiah is our Light, who shines in our hearts, empowering us against the darkness. This is why we are called children of light, children of day.

You are all children of light, and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night, nor to darkness..
1 Thessalonians 5:5

CrucifiedIt is interesting that this Hanukkah we are focusing on the light of Messiah against the backdrop of a great darkness. I am talking about the crucifixion of Messiah, that we are studying this Sabbath. Surely, there was never a darker day than the darkest day in human history - the day Messiah - the light of the world - was snuffed out.

It was terrible, and yet, the darkness could not overcome Him. It could not even change Him. It could only kill Him, and only because He allowed that to happen. He willingly gave us that sacrifice, for our good.

Indeed, during His last three hours until His death, the earth was covered in darkness, as darkness was having its day. This is not pleasant to think about, yet, we can never understand how great a light He was in the world without first understanding how great a darkness He overcame. Through His ordeal in victory He made it possible for us to taste victory of light over darkness for ourselves.

Please, join us tonight, at 8 PM CST at Tsiyon.Net for our online meeting, as we witness Messiah Crucified.

Palestinian claims to Jerusalem lose Saudi as well as US support

Reprint: Debkafile, December 16, 2017

The Palestinians have three major grievances with the Trump administration on Jerusalem, but are most irked by Saudi backing for the Trump peace plan.

Palestine rage over President Donald Trump Jerusalem decisions was further fueled Friday, Dec. 17 by the comment from Washington: “We cannot envision any situation under which the Western Wall would not be part of Israel. But, as the president said, the specific boundaries of sovereignty of Israel are going to be part of the final status agreement.” It came with the announcement that Vice President Mike Pence will pay a visit to the Western Wall next Wednesday’ Dec. 20, during his Middle East tour.

Not too long ago, President Trump himself visited the Western wall on May 22. But then, American security officers excluded their Israeli counterparts from safeguarding the visit, claiming it took place outside Israeli territory. border. Eight months later, Trump has restored Israel’s sovereignty to the Western Wall, which encloses the hallowed compound of  the last Jewish Temple, in time for his vice president to pray there.

For the Palestinians, this is another Trump-administration shift in Israel’s favor and its consequent loss of credibility as an honest broker for the Palestinian-Israeli dispute. The Palestinian Authority in Ramallah reiterated this position Saturday, after announcing a boycott of the Pence visit and severing contact with Washington – a position they can’t really afford to sustain for long.

But what is really irking them even more than the Trump administration’s pro-Israeli stance on Jerusalem is its endorsement by their longstanding champion, Riyadh. The impression gaining ground in recent weeks is that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has reached an understanding with Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman (MbS) on a new plan for resolving the Israeli-Arab conflict, which departs fundamentally from the traditional core issues that scuttled all past peace processes.

The first inkling of such a plan came on the pages of the The New York Times of Nov. 11, under the title “Trump Team Begins Drafting Middle East Peace Plan.” This plan was described as pushing ahead on the fast track due to three factors:

  1. Its support by the Saudi crown prince and Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi.

  2. The uncertainty of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s future in the face of long-running police probes against him.

  3. The constant erosion of Mahmoud Abbas’ standing as Palestinian Authority Chairman, whose rapidly diminishing popularity, due to his advanced age of 82 and the corruption rife in Ramallah, is reflected in the latest Palestinian opinion poll on Dec. 7-10. (70 percent want him to retire: 84 percent on the West Bank and 26 percent in the Gaza Strip).

Washington has therefore chosen a moment of leadership weakness to push ahead with its plans to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

A week before the NYT report, Abbas (Abu Mazen) paid an urgent visit to Riyadh to meet Prince Muhammed. Since then, a continuous stream of tidbits is emanating from their conversation. According to one report, the Saudi prince put before the Palestinian leader an American-Saudi blueprint. It proclaims Abu Dis, a village located on the fringes of east Jerusalem, as the capital of the future Palestinian state. That state would have limited sovereignty in parts of the West Bank, while all the Jewish communities would remain in place. East Jerusalem would not be declared its capital; and the Palestinian refugees’ “right of return” was dropped, as was mention of the pre-1967 boundaries.

Notwithstanding flat Palestinian denials of all these reports, they continue to gain ground and credence. The picture emerging from the Saudi prince’s conversation with Abu Mazen is taking shape as underlining the following points:

  • The old Saudi-Arab League peace plan of 2003 is a dead letter;

  • Riyadh has dropped its demand that Israel accept a Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital;

  • Since the original Saudi Peace proposal which the prince called Plan A was dead, it is necessary to move forward to Plan B.

  • Plan B is essentially as follows: The State of Palestine would be established in the Gaza Strip plus large tracts of territory to be annexed from northern Sinai. Egypt has agreed to this outline. This deal would essentially render irrelevant the Palestinian demand to restore the pre-1967 boundaries for their state.

  • When Abu Mazen asked what would happen to the West Bank, MbS reportedly replied: “We can continue to negotiate about this.”

  • And when he pressed further: What about Jerusalem, the settlements, Areas B and C, the answer was: “These will be issues for negotiation between two states, and we will help you.”

These reports are furiously denied by Palestinian officials and, although no other official source, including Prince Muhammad, has verified them, they continue to abound. The Palestinians now have three major grievances against the Trump administration for which they are cutting off ties with Washington in protest:  Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and, now, the declaration of the Western Wall as part of Israel in any political solution. This will be underlined by the Pence visit. Yet neither Washington nor Riyadh shows any sign of backtracking on their far-reaching plan which defies all former conventions.

Abu Mazen is in a jam. Even if he tries to distance himself from Washington, he cannot possibly divorce the Palestinians from the two leading Arab nations, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, which would lop off the branches of the Arab tree on which they sit. Doing so might well thrust Ramallah on the path of the anti-West Turkish-Iranian-Hizballah axis and its extremist ideology. There are early signs that his rivals in Gaza, the radical Hamas, may be adopting this path. After Friday prayers in the mosques of Gaza, on Dec. 15, some of the demonstrators at the Israel border force were seen for the first time holding aloft huge placards with depictions of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Commander of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Al Qods. If Iran can gain solid inroads into the Palestinian community at large, its dispute with Israel would assume an entirely new dimension.


See this video! - September 23, 2017, we were told, would be the date of The Great Sign of Revelation 12. Dire end-of-the-world predictions were made. Yet, after that day of "The Great Sign" came and went, and the predictions failed to materialize, we heard little if anything explaining the failure. This was not the first time this has happened, and won't be the last. Why? Signs in the sky are foretold in Scripture for the last days. True to that prophecy, unusual heavenly signs do occur. In fact, signs in the sky often cause a clamor, with predictions of rapture and the end of the world. Yet, these signs come and go, and the predicted events fail to happen. This, of course, provides an opportunity for scoffers to gloat. Why does this keep happening? Could it be that these signs are significant, but they mean something different than YouTube preachers have guessed? There is, in fact, a unified message in these sky signs. This video, "The Heavens Speak" reveals what that message is.
