This article was another indication that Rabbis are intensely wanting Christians to come into their corner since Islamic pressure is building from all directions. Obama is a Muslim and even though he made promises and tried to give the impression that he is a friend of Israel, it is not the case. Muslims are deeply committed to their faith. Obama denigrated the sermon on the Mount made by Jesus Christ.
The surge now to bring Christians, Jews and Muslims together to get the 3rd Temple built can't be ignored. Rabbis have spent millions of dollars to get ready with all the artifacts for the temple necessary even the perfect red heifer that will be burnt for the sacrifice of sins. Jews believe that Jesus has not come yet and the temple and Aaronic Priesthood are necessary to get God's attention to their problem. They are so desperate that they are willing to let Muslims build the 3rd Temple just to get it going.
The Pope is staying out of this issue, but working hard to gather all believers in whatever faith into the Vatican's fold. He stated that all humans will go to heaven that it doesn't take Jesus to get there.
Here is why we believe that the Pope is not the Antichrist. He is probably the mouthpiece of Satan luring people of all walks into becoming the sheaf which will be burned, in other words he could be the False Prophet described in the Bible.
The seat of Satan is described in Revelation 2:12-16 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth."
Here is what Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24:21-25 "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before."
Note in the following article my comments will be in parenthesis in bold.
Top rabbis: Unmistakable signs of Messiah coming
That heading will get every believer's attention
End-times expert again [beware of experts]: Demonstrates how Christians and Jews are reconciling. [Beware: this is parallel to Pope Francis' unification of all denominations]
Published: July.20.2016 by World Net Daily
A conversation between two of the most distinguished rabbis in Israel indicates scholars of the Torah [Books of Moses in the Old Testament] see unmistakable signs of the coming of the Messiah. What's more, in the Messianic era, Christians will become a source of Torah learning , as believers in Jesus Christ rediscover the source of their beliefs in both Judaism and the Torah. [Why would believers be going back to the Old Testament when Jesus fulfilled it?]
The conversation took place between Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch and Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, both of whom are regarded as leading experts in the Torah.
During the conversation, Rabbi Kanievsky reportedly predicted the imminent coming of the Messiah
[In other words He hasn't come yet. This is about the first coming before the end of the year after the Shemitah.] The Shemitah is a seven-year cycle which seems to correlate with dramatic events in history, as explained by messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn in 'The Mystery of the Shemitah.'
Rabbi Sternbuch contested the timing, and said before the Messiah will come, the Christians and the Arabs will come to Israel. Rabbi Kanievsky added "all the non-fruit bearing trees in Israel will bear fruit," meaning Christians will be learning Torah. [Here is the meaning of what the Rabbi states that non-fruit bearing trees will bear fruit by rejecting Jesus Christ. Going back into the Torah is to forget about the New Testament. Jews do not accept Jesus of the New Testament.]
Thus, the breach between Christians and Jews will be healed, as both communities turn to the study of God's Word. [there is no breach between Christians and Jews. Christians are the Bride of Christ Jesus and the Jews are God's wife. God remarries the remnant]
What do YOU think? Do you expect the Messiah to come imminently Matthew 24:21-25 "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before."
[I expect the Rapture imminently and Jesus' second coming at the end of the Tribulation (7 years from the beginning. The tribulation starts with the peace agreement still a work in progress).
Christians obviously believe the Messiah has already come in the form of Jesus Christ and what is being discussed is not His "arrival," but His return. Nonetheless, several Christian leaders who have been prominent in the growing movement to reconnect Christianity with its Judaic roots welcomed the comments by these prominent Torah scholars.
Jonathan Cahn, the leader of the largest Messianic congregation in the world and the bestselling author of several books, "The Harbinger" and "The Mystery of the Shemitah," welcomed the rabbis' comments as another sign the original breach [?] between Judaism and Christianity is being healed.
Explore "The Coming Battle For Jerusalem," "The Global Jesus Revolution [What does Jesus have to do with Islam?] Israel, Islam, and The Gospel At The End Of The Age," "When a Jew Rules the World," and more from Joel Richardson.
"We are seeing things that no other
generation has seen, since the book of Acts," said Cahn.
"Most of this would have been unthinkable not long ago," he told WND. "In fact, for two thousand years of church history, it has largely been absent. The irony is it all began this way. Christianity in its original and most natural form was (and is) totally Jewish. So what we're seeing is a restoration." [Of the Old Testament ???]
Cahn agreed with the rabbis this dramatic shift constituted a sign the end times were coming soon.
"There is a mystery that at the end of the age, things return to the form they had at the beginning," he said. "This includes the reappearance of Israel and Jerusalem - and the now the coming together of the church and Israel [Not Scriptural], Christians and the Jewish people. [Last time I was in Israel we were instructed by the guides not to witness to Israelis. Our guide said if we tried to baptize a Jew in the Jordan River all you would have is a " wet Jew." In other words they can't receive the Word, which confirms the Biblical teaching]
"Every weekend we see people of all nations, all backgrounds, all colors coming together at my own place of worship, the Jerusalem Center, to worship the God of Israel and to grow deeper in the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus. It's an end-time phenomenon and it's exciting!"
Mark Biltz, the discoverer of the "Blood Moons" phenomenon and the author of the upcoming "God's Day Timer: The Believer's Guide to Divine Appointments," said the acceptance by all the nations of the wisdom of the Torah and the divine significance of Hebrew are critical for Christians to understand, especially in the end times. [I got in trouble over Jacob Prash years ago over this issue. He had on his website that Christians can't understand the Bible without the divine significance of Hebrew. In other words Christians cannot possibly understand the Old Testament writings without Rabbis teaching them.]
"The Bible declares that during Messianic times [when are the Messianic times?] the knowledge of the Torah and the acknowledgment of the God of Israel will completely cover the Earth," Biltz told WND.
"The Torah is often likened to water as both descend from heaven. We read in Habakkuk 2:14, 'For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.' Hebrew is a pure language and the original language at creation. Everything is being restored much like a reversal of the Tower of Babel where all nations will know Hebrew in Messianic times."
Matthew 26:6-14 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. [JESUS SPEAKING] Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel [the Good News] shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her. Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,"
Bill Cloud, who heads Shoreshim Ministries and is the author of "Esau Rising: Ancient Adversaries and the War for America's Soul," is excited by what he sees as an embrace of what he's been teaching for years.
"This is the Talmudic side of what I taught years ago in a message called 'the fullness of the Gentiles,'" Cloud told WND. "It's about the grafting in of the wild olive branch and how that provokes the unfruitful tree to bear. Believers in Messiah who are also embracing the Torah as a guideline for how to live is most definitely a sign of his return. It's part of the restoration of all things that is spoken of in Matthew 17 and Acts 2."
[If Jesus is the Vine how can He be unfruitful? Romans 11:16-22 "For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off."]
[At one time, tackling this most forbidding of texts was restricted to male scholars ready to devote themselves to prolonged study in a yeshiva or religious school. Then, in 1923, a rabbi named Meir Shapiro introduced a study regime known as daf yomi, or "page-a-day". Under the supervision of a teacher or a fellow student who has prepared in advance, students read through two facing pages of Talmud and commentary, try to work out the meaning and discuss the implications for their lives.
In 2013 The Talmud, the book of Jewish law, is one of the most challenging religious texts in the world. But it is being read in ever larger numbers, partly thanks to digital tools that make it easier to grasp, and growing interest from women - who see no reason why men should have it to themselves.
Since its launch last year, users have made around 15 million downloads, mostly of entire Talmudic volumes, Mayer Pasternak, director of Artscroll's Digital Talmud, told the BBC. To put that in perspective, the Jewish world population is thought to be a little under 14 million.http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-24367959 ]
What's the difference between the Torah and Talmud? The actual way various passages of each of these texts were created will probably be debated for all time. But the major difference between them is that tradition tells us G-d gave us Torah, and rabbis gave us Talmud. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-the-Talmud-and-the-Torah]
What is the the Talmud (/?t??lm?d, -m?d, ?tæl-/; Hebrew: ????????? talm?d "instruction, learning", from a root LMD "teach, study") is a central text of Rabbinic Judaism. It is also traditionally referred to as Shas (???), a Hebrew abbreviation of shisha sedarim, the "six orders", a reference to the six orders of the Mishnah. The term "Talmud" normally refers to the collection of writings named specifically the Babylonian Talmud (Talmud Bavli), although there is also an earlier collection known as the Jerusalem Talmud, or Palestinian Talmud (Talmud Yerushalmi). [The questionmarks are Hebrew letters]
When referring to post-biblical periods,
namely those of the creation of the Talmud, the Talmudic academies
and the Babylonian exilarchate, Jewish sources use the term "Babylonia"
long after it had become obsolete in geopolitical terms.
The entire Talmud consists of 63 tractates, and in standard print is over 6,200 pages long. It is written in Tannaitic Hebrew and Jewish Babylonian Aramaic and contains the teachings and opinions of thousands of rabbis (dating from before the Common Era through the fifth century CE) on a variety of subjects, including Halakha (law), Jewish ethics, philosophy, customs, history, lore and many other topics. The Talmud is the basis for all codes of Jewish law, and is widely quoted in rabbinic literature.
[Bill Cloud stated this about the Gentiles?
"This is the Talmudic side of what I taught years ago in
a message called 'the fullness of the Gentiles,'" ]
"It's connected to the idea that Elijah
the Tishbite was not ethnically Israeli but of the toshavim -
'resident aliens' - who joined themselves to Israel (1 Kings
17). According to the Messiah it is Elijah - or shall I say those
represented by Elijah (the Wildbranch) - who restore all things
Deuteronomy 18:15-19 "The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. [God will only use Jews for prophets according to this teacher] ]
"This is exciting news because it demonstrates how many Christians and many Jews are recognizing that Messiah's coming is near and how that portends a reconciliation between the two," he said. "In my view, as Christians awaken to what they have been blind to - an obligation to keep the Torah - it will provoke our Jewish friends to see what they have been blind to - the identity of the Messiah." [Jesus is about the New Testament. He came to fulfill the requirements of the Old Testament and His last words were, "It is finished."]

"He indeed is coming (again), and He will most certainly deliver His people and pour out His blessings on Israel," the pastor predicted. "And there will most assuredly be a time of 'Jacob's Trouble,' before Yeshua's arrival - a cataclysmic event in which the Jewish people will see the hand of God alone as their deliverance from what would appear to the world as Israel's certain destruction.
[Matthew 22:1-14 And Jesus answered
and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom
of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage
for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were
bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent
forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold,
I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed,
and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made
light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to
his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated
them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof,
he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those
murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants,
The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find,
bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways,
and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and
good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the
king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had
not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how
camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was
speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand
and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness;
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mt 22:14 Family Bible Notes: Called; invited
to receive the blessings of the gospel. Chosen; by accepting
its provisions to enjoy its benefits. None would accept the gracious
invitations of the gospel, and be for ever blessed, if God had
not from the beginning chosen them to salvation, through the
sanctification of the Spirit and the belief of the truth. While
those who reject Christ and are lost owe their destruction wholly
to themselves, those who are saved are indebted for salvation
to the riches of grace. ]
