War In America

 
The War Dispatches

By MICHAEL J. MILLER 7:30 AM ET

NEW YORK CITY— John F. Kennedy said, “The world knows that America will never start a war. This generation of Americans has had enough of war and hate ... we want to build a world of peace where the weak are secure and the strong are just.” The Bay of Pigs notwithstanding, about forty years later, a new generation of American leaders apparently motivated by a tumescent imperial swagger for “war and hate,” started the Iraq war over non-existent weapons of mass destruction, and not the obviously gauche raison d’etre, existent oil and gas. The Middle East, and the world haven’t been the same since the fateful day in Baghdad, when America, ignorant of its prophetic portent, opened Pandora’s box in the ancient land of Babylon.

Christ's Return, The Hijacked Elephant

Modern Christianity that celebrates the hijacked Ishtar festival is devoid of any understanding of the purpose of the intervening time between Christ's first and second coming. But as we've just read, it is the summer harvest of the first fruits of Christ. [Read the Feature article, Heaven Can Wait]. These Christian first fruits are of the House of Israel. Peter was very clear to whom he was addressing his remarks on that Pentecost day nearly 2000 years ago. "Therefore let all the House of Israel know assuredly, that God has made the same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ [Messiah] ... Repent, and be baptized every one of you [House of Israel] in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." [Acts 2:36-38; also see the Sneakers article, What About Everyone Else?]. It is no coincidence either that Christ said, "I am not sent except to the lost sheep of the House of Israel." [Mat. 15:24]. And it is equally clear, Christ was not sent to the "gentiles of the world."

This Old House

This old house is just shy of being 2000 years old. It is the same house to whom Christ said he was only sent. It is the same house to whom he is Savior and Redeemer. It is the same house to whom he sent out his apostles. And it’s the same house on the first day of Christianity that Peter addressed his remarks to in Jerusalem. For the most part, this old house sits abandoned today; a derelict greatly in need of major repair. It is so run down, in fact, that before its renovation can start, we have begun, in what is popularly known on television house shows as, "Demo day."
