A 'Big, Untold Story', December 23, 2016 Another Date That Will Live In Infamy, America vs The Deep State

A big, untold story: online videos of Jews explaining why they believe Jesus is the Messiah have been viewed more than 23 million times

[With all of the seemingly depressing prophecy related news, we have something very encouraging happening in our midst. This comes from Joel Rosenberg]

With so much bad news in the U.S., Israel, Russia and around the world these days, I thought it might be good to kick off 2017 with some very good news.

“Millions of Jews have begun a quest to find the Messiah,” I wrote at the time, based on conversations with key Messianic Jewish ministry leaders in the U.S. and Israel. “For reasons I cannot fully explain, Jews are suddenly searching for answers to the deepest and most important questions concerning life and death and God and atonement and eternity, in numbers unprecedented in history. Some are searching through the Hebrew Scriptures for answers. A stunning number are actually reading the New Testament, most for the first time. They are searching on Google for information about the Messiah. They are even watching a new series of videos by Jews who claim to have found the answers. The videos — some of which have gone viral — were produced and posted on a new website called”
The numbers as of September 2015 were nothing short of astonishing. “More than 10 million people have watched these [English-language testimony] videos just in the past few months,” I explained, while “more than 900,000 Hebrew speakers have watched the Hebrew-language versions of these videos in just the past four months.”
Since then, however — despite the stigma in the Jewish community against consider the claiming of Jesus — the videos have continued to go viral and are surging beyond anything I would have imagined.

Eitan Bar, a native Israeli and a devoted follower of Yeshua, heads a team that is producing the videos and helping to develop digital evangelism strategies for two ministries, One For Israel (based in Israel and led by Dr. Erez Soref) and Chosen People Ministries (based in the U.S. and led by Dr. Mitch Glaser). Recently, I asked Eitan if he had updated figures.

Eitan’s online report also includes numerous encouraging quotes by Jews who have been watching the videos and either started their own spiritual journeys to figure out who Jesus (Yeshua) is or who have actually become His followers.

A few examples:
  • “Finally, I have reached the destination I was looking for, for years! …I considered myself to be an atheist for a long while, resisting any kind of explanation of God. Until, I came across your video about who Jesus is, that you did in Jerusalem. My jaw dropped. So I decided to keep away from your videos so not to fall for it. But, like a cat who is drawn to the taste of cream, I wanted more. Everyday I would visit your websites to watch more and more of your video teachings. I found truth and endless love that I never came across in Judaism. Thank you so, so much!” — a Jewish woman in her 40s who lives in central Israel
  • “I found Yeshua on YouTube, through one of your advertised videos about the falsehood of the rabbinic oral law. I felt that I had to check what it is all about and found a whole new world!! Yeshua changed my life and I’m thankful to Him and to you because of it. I feel that my life was saved. All the information in your videos is so rich in content, pleasant to watch, and the way you explain things is so good that I came to that moment in my life of understanding who Yeshua really is. I thank you from the depth of my soul! I want more Jews to know the truth, which is that Yeshua is the Messiah who we’ve been waiting for all along!” — a young Jewish man who works in Jerusalem
  • “First, I have no words to thank you (Eitan) and Moti for the articles and videos. I saw your video-ad on YouTube a year or two ago, but when I realized that it’s all about “Christianity” and “Jesus”, I switched it off. Lately, I came across your videos once again, and it grabbed me so I decided to read the prophecies in the Old Testament. I was surprised to find out they all point to Yeshua . Then I wanted to find out about the lifestyle of Messianic Jews – how do you live your lives – only to realize that it’s not about what we do, but about what’s inside, the change is inside the heart.  …I found our Messiah and two days ago gave Him my heart.” — an Orthodox Jewish man

It’s amazing to think how few Jewish people have ever examined the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, the most famous Israeli in all of human history. Fortunately, that’s changing now.
As a Jewish follower of Yeshua myself, I am thrilled to see the Lord using these websites, videos and social media to spread the Gospel so broadly and so rapidly throughout Israel via Hebrew and throughout the English speaking world.
While surely many Gentiles are watching the English language videos, many Jews are watching them, too. What’s more, we can be confident that the vast majority of those watching the Hebrew language videos are Jews. This suggests the possibility that in a world of about 14.5 million Jewish people — including about six million Jews in Israel — more Jewish people have been exposed to the Gospel of Yeshua the Messiah in the last two or three years than in any other two to three year period in human history.

Two foul acts took place against the Jewish people living in neighborhoods of Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, and in their ancestral and biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria, (known by the false name, West Bank, given to it by the Jordanian Arab occupiers from 1948 to 1967). 

The first act occurred in that cesspit of immorality known as the United Nations. 

It was deliberately perpetrated on December 23, 2016 - another date that will live in infamy and was fiendishly conceived and executed by an evil hater of the Jewish people, of the Jewish faith, and of the re-constituted Jewish State of Israel - namely one Barack Hussein Obama; President of the United States of America for eight long and baleful years. That crime has become known as UN Security Resolution 2334.

As fellow writer, Melanie Phillips, wrote:
“President Obama’s refusal to veto the sickening UN Security Council resolution against Israel was an act of pure malice. The resolution is legally illiterate and perpetrates the Big Lie about Israel: that the so-called “settlements” violate international law.
“The UN has long demonstrated by its egregious application of double standards against Israel that it has become nothing less than an instrument of extermination against a member state. Only the US restrained it: now Obama has allied America to this agenda of infamy.”

Revisionist harangue by Obama’s odious and lamentable Secretary of State, John Kerry

Obama, no lover of Christianity either, chose with infernal and diabolical fury to carry out his hateful deed just prior to Christmas, which will mark his evil legacy down the ages. And it is our misfortune to witness one of history’s supreme and horrifying ironies: 

The Jewish villagers and townsfolk living within their ancient, biblical 3,500-year-old heartland of Judea and Samaria and in many parts of reunited Jerusalem are now demonized by a hate filled and vile world body as illegal and illegitimate - and on the very eve of the Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations which coincided in 2016. 

Even the holy Jewish sites, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, as well as the ancient Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem and many Christian holy sites are now considered by the loathsome United Nations as, “occupied Palestinian territories.”

Pity the 750,000 Jewish souls in Jerusalem neighborhoods and throughout Judea and Samaria who are told by a hateful world that they are now illegitimate and prey to every UN sanctioned outrage.

Then a long and utterly revisionist harangue by Obama’s odious and lamentable Secretary of State, John Kerry, poured salt into Israel’s deep wound. According to Kerry it was the “settlements” that have prevented peace between the Jewish state and the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.

He disregarded all the long and blood soaked years from 1948 to 1967 when the Arabs relentlessly attacked and terrorized the Jewish state before Israel - in its defensive Six Day War liberated East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria from illegal Jordanian occupation.

There were no “settlements” before 1967 but the Arabs nevertheless were intent on destroying Israel even within the nine to 15 mile wide armistice lines that Israel’s then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Abba Eban, called the Auschwitz lines. This is what Obama, Kerry and the morally bankrupt UN want Israel to shrink to - a sure and guaranteed recipe for Israel’s destruction. 

Refusing to acknowledge the empirical truth that it is, and always has been, the Arab world - and particularly the so-called Palestinians - who have rejected numerous and suicidal peace offers made to them by successive left wing Israeli governments, Kerry predictably exposed his anti-Israel animus by blaming the existence of Jewish homes in Jerusalem and Jewish towns and villages in Judea and Samaria for the anti-Israel Arab war of genocide.

Kerry fulminated for an hour against the ever embattled Jewish state, America’s only true and loyal friend in the terrible Middle East. And in the 11th hour and fifty ninth minute of Obama’s hideous reign, Kerry spewed forth a message that no doubt gave his evil and malevolent boss, along with BDS and legions of anti-Semites, gleeful pleasure thus providing the Arab and Muslim brutes carte blanch to kill yet more Jewish victims. 
Just as Nazi Germany delegitimized Europe’s Jews and then followed with systematic genocide, now Jewish men, women and children will again be at the mercy of voracious and merciless wolves in human clothing thanks to the corrosive evil that lurks within the hearts and minds of Barack Hussein Obama and John Kerry.

The bamboozlement of the public is nearly complete. The Deep State has persuaded 80 percent of Americans that all news is propaganda, especially the news emanating from the Deep State’s own intel department. They’re still shooting for 100 percent. The fakest of all “fake news” stories turns out to be… “Russia Hacks Election.” It was reported conclusively Saturday on the front page of The New York Times, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Deep State:

You can be sure that this is now the “official” narrative aimed at the history books, sealing the illegitimacy of Trump’s election. It was served up with no direct proof, only the repeated “assertions” that it was so. 

In fact, it’s just this repetition of assertions-without-proof that defines propaganda. 

It can also be interpreted as a declaration of war against an incoming president. The second civil war now takes shape: It begins inside the groaning overgrown apparatus of the government itself. Perhaps after that it spreads to the WalMart parking lots that have become America’s new town square. (WalMart sells pitchforks and patio torches.)

Did the Russians make Hillary Clinton look bad? Or did Hillary Clinton manage to do that herself? The NSA propaganda was designed as a smokescreen to conceal the veracity of the Wikileaks releases. Whoever actually rooted out the DNC and Podesta emails for Wikileaks ought to get the Pulitizer Prize for the outstanding public service of disclosing exactly how dishonest the Hillary operation was.

The story may have climaxed with Trump’s Friday NSA briefing, the heads of the various top intel agencies all assembled in one room to emphasize the solemn authority of the Deep State’s power. Trump worked a nice piece of ju-jitsu afterward, pretending to accept the finding as briefly and hollowly as possible and promising to “look into the matter” after January 20th — when he can tear a new ------ in the NSA. I hope he does. This hulking security apparatus has become a menace to the Republic.

Whether Trump himself is a menace to the Republic remains to be seen. Certainly he is the designated bag-holder for all the economic and financial depravity of several preceding administrations. When the markets blow, do you suppose the Russians will be blamed for that? Did Boris Yeltsin repeal the Glass-Steagall Act? Was Ben Bernanke a puppet of Putin? No, these actions and actors were homegrown American. For more than thirty years, we’ve been borrowing too much money so we can pretend to afford living in a blue-light-special demolition derby. And now we can’t do that anymore. The physics of capital will finally assert itself.

The CIA floated a conspiracy theory to undermine Trump in the Electoral College, a Hail Mary pass after the election upset. Yes, a conspiracy theory, the dangerous kind that puts nuclear-armed nations at each other’s throats.

“And yet, there is skepticism within the American government, particularly at the F.B.I., that this evidence adds up to proof that the Russians had the specific objective of getting Mr. Trump elected.”

What’s more, that’s still the case!
“Officials reiterated that there is no single intercepted communication that qualifies as a ‘smoking gun’ on Russia’s intention to benefit Trump’s candidacy or to claim credit for doing so.”

“Reiterated” because the message is clearly not getting through the solid wall of hysteria.

That plain truth is clearly the opposite of the propaganda blitzkrieg we have just witnessed, from Saturday Night Live to the usual suspects at the foundation-funded left-leaning propaganda complex, those “gatekeepers.” Nor to the nation’s political cartoonists, who have led the charge to conflate Trump with Vladimir Putin, even though none of us has seen a single shred of credible evidence. The propaganda tsunami has been so voluminous that it’s difficult to recall a previous comparable situation. Only the false ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ bamboozle comes to mind, and we know how that worked out; don’t we?

The U.S. government has now generated numerous news stories and released multiple “reports” aimed at persuading us that Vladimir Putin is to blame for Donald Trump becoming president. U.S. media has dutifully informed us that the case has been made. What has been made is the case for writing your own news coverage. The “reports” from the “intelligence community” are no lengthier than the New York Times and Washington Post articles about them. Why not just read the reports and cut out the middle-person?
The New York Times calls the latest report “damning and surprisingly detailed” before later admitting in the same “news” article that the report “contained no information about how the agencies had collected their data or had come to their conclusions.” A quick glance at the report itself would have made clear to you that it did not pretend to present a shred of evidence that Russia hacked emails or served as a source for WikiLeaks. Yet Congresswoman Barbara Lee declared the evidence in this evidence-free report “overwhelming.” What should progressives believe, the best Congresswoman we’ve got or our own lying eyes?
Supposedly the evidence has been made public and is overwhelming, but try to find it and you’ll come up dry.

Even the NSA will commit only to “moderate” confidence in what millions of Democrats will now stake their lives (and potentially everybody else’s) on. Former top NSA expert on this stuff William Binney swears the claims are utter nonsense. IP addresses produced as supposed evidence turn out in at least many cases to have nothing to do with Russia at all, much less the Russian government.

The accusations against Russia in the latest “overwhelming” report include: favoring proposals to work with Russia over proposals to build hostility (shocking!), and running a television network that many people in the United States choose to watch (the outrage! how capitalistic!). And the television network is accused of cheering for Trump’s election — as if the British media wouldn’t have cheered for Clinton’s — as if the U.S. media doesn’t cheer for election winners abroad all the time. This network, RT, is also accused of covering third-party candidates, fracking, Occupy, vote suppression, flaws in the U.S. election system, and other forbidden topics.

When I go on RT and suggest that the United States should end all its wars, and that Russia should too, I’m invited back on. The last U.S. network to have me on was MSNBC, and I opposed U.S. warmaking and was never heard from again. Perhaps most people watching U.S. media don’t quite realize that there are no antiwar voices allowed, no voices that actually want to abolish war. Yet most people feel there is something missing, on this and most topics. There’s lots of supposed debate on U.S. media, yet a dim — or glaring — awareness among viewers and readers that the debate is severely limited.
Here’s an example close-to-hand: Whoever revealed to the U.S. public additional evidence that the Democratic Party had slanted its primary against Bernie Sanders did us all a favor. Those who still wanted to vote for Hillary Clinton (which was clearly most if not all the people who did before) could still do so. But anyone who approved of Hillary Clinton’s disastrous decades-long record and yet objected to the unfair primary could choose not to vote for her. An informed public is a more democratic one, not less. Whoever informed us aided our democracy. They didn’t damage it. And whoever informed us was not themselves responsible for rigging the primary against Sanders. That was the Democratic Party. But this point of view is neither permitted in the U.S. media nor consciously missed, because the topic has been focused on whodunit rather than what-did-they-do.

Regarding: "A big, untold story: online videos of Jews explaining why they believe Jesus is the Messiah have been viewed more than 23 million times"... Really, really good news. I've watched many of those testimonies. Incredibly wonderful. And then there are the countless stories of Muslims accepting Jesus. Even accounts of Him appearing to them. Amazing. Then there's the Church in the west that remains asleep for the most part, going about its business-as-usual, continuing to make its worldly plans, and intentionally ignorant of the times in which we're living. Praying that the Lord soon shake things up. So ready to go Home.

Amazing and uplifting stories i completely agree. Makes me feel better about the seemingly endless delay in the gathering up:)

It seems like the angst a child feels when traveling somewhere in the family car. He keeps asking his parents, "Are we there yet?"
