Rabbi’s Reflections – Sunday, November 6, 2022
Shavuah Tov,

Biblical Perspective of Current News (Part of October 2022)
by Dr. Raymond Finney

AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW GRATITUDE: Next Friday, November 11, is Veterans Day. If you know a veteran or active-duty military member, this is a good day to tell him/ her: “Thank you for your service. You have helped secure the freedoms that my family and I now enjoy.” In my experience, most veterans and military personnel are very modest. At most, they may respond to your gratitude only with a soft “Thank you for remembering.” Most of them, though, will be deeply touched by your expression of thanks. As a nation, we have treated and still treat our men and women in the military shamefully. We may be on the precipice of war. We cannot recruit enough young men and women to fill our dwindling armed forces. Will it take seeing China’s red flag flying in America’s court squares for Americans to long for the return of a strong military?

INTRODUCTION: News reports scream at us: “We live in the last days. The end of the Age of Grace is at hand. Yeshua is returning soon.” Most of the world– including, sadly, many Believers– are nonchalant about the warning signs. In this area, there is more concern about the Vols’ football season than about the future of souls. Many congregations do not learn of the dangers, rewards, and responsibilities that lie immediately ahead. Their congregation leaders have failed them by not being watchmen on the walls to alert them of coming dangers (Ezekiel 33:1-20).

Following are a few news reports and commentaries published in October. You may be  interested in some. This is not an easy newsletter to write because there are so many news reports from which to choose. For every report contained herein, many have not been selected. Read about Yeshua’s return and our responsibilities before God. At judgment, you will be credited for faithful reading of the Bible. How much will you be credited for faithful reading of Facebook (Meta)? Remember (Hosea 4:6): [Adonai said] “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Since you rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being My kohen. Since you forgot the Torah of your God, just so I will forget your children.”

►TITLE (DATE): Xi’s reelection will have ‘catastrophic consequences,’ religious freedom advocates warn (October 27, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Christian Post ( President Xi’s reelection will have ‘catastrophic consequences’ | Politics News (christianpost.com) ) https://www.christianpost.com/news/president-xi-reelection-will-have-catastrophic-consequences.html

● SUMMARY: Religious freedom advocates warn of “catastrophic consequences” after the Chinese Communist Party reelected Xi Jinping as the leader of the People’s Republic of China. Xi Jinping secured a third term as president of China and General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party last week, after the National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party abolished the two-term limit for presidents that had been in place for more than three decades. Xi’s reelection comes as China faces international scrutiny over its treatment of religious minorities and political dissidents as well as its role in causing the coronavirus pandemic that has caused millions of deaths worldwide.

● SIGNIFICANCE: Believers, as well as adherents of other faiths, should worry about the future freedom to exercise religious faith and practices in an increasingly totalitarian, officially godless China. The Revelation prophesies cruel persecutions for Believers. For example, consider the Fifth Seal Judgment (Revelation 6:9-11): When the Lamb [Yeshua] opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those slaughtered for the sake of the word of God and for the witness they had. And they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “O Sovereign Master, holy and true, how long before You judge those who dwell on the earth and avenge our blood?” Then a white robe was given to each of them, and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants was complete– their brothers and sisters who were to be killed as they had been. A gracious God will compensate any martyr who dies of persecution because of his/ her faith by awarding him/ her a Crown of Life at the Bema Judgment (Revelation 2:10): [Yeshua said] “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, so that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” As explained in previous RRs, the English word “martyr” is derived from the Greek word for “witness” (μάρτυς = martys). There is no greater witness for Yeshua than the willing forfeiture of one’s life for Him (John 15:13-14): [Yeshua said] “No one has greater love than this: that he lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.” Before we single out Xi Jinping for condemnation, we need to remember that many, many persons in America (and America’s government) would like to abolish the First Amendment and severely restrict– even outlaw– religious practices. This same hatred for God is present in nations throughout the West (Judeo-Christian nations). Satan has an extremely strong foothold in nations of the world.

►TITLE (DATE): China ‘no longer deserves benefit of the doubt’: Bombshell Senate report concludes that COVID ‘most likely’ leaked from lab– as lawmakers point the finger at Beijing (October 27, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Daily Mail ( Covid ‘most likely’ leaked from lab, explosive Senate says | Daily Mail Online ) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-11362165/Covid-likely-leaked-lab-explosive-Senate-says.html

● SUMMARY: The COVID pandemic was most likely the result of a lab leak, according to a bombshell Senate report. Policymakers said there was “substantial” evidence of an accident at a research facility. The interim report concluded that China’s unwillingness to cooperate or open up the lab in question meant it “no longer deserves the benefit of the doubt.”

● SIGNIFICANCE: The future Tribulation will be marked by massive pandemics. For example, the Fourth Seal Judgment (Revelation 6:7-8, symbolized as the rider, named “Death,” riding a green horse) will result in the death of one-fourth of the world’s population by famine, war, and wild beasts of the earth (beasts = vectors of bacteria and viruses, such as the COVID virus which originated in bats). Famine and war weaken immune systems, making people more susceptible to infections. Multiple nations are now working on bacterial and viral weapons of war (such as, China’s Wuhan Laboratory’s experimentation with the COVID virus to make a weapon of war).

►TITLE (DATE): Putin’s deluded rant to the world: War-mongerer says ‘western domination is over’, calls for a ‘new world order’ and warns we have entered the most dangerous decade since WW2 (October 27, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Daily Mail ( Russia war: Putin accuses West of fueling war in Ukraine | Daily Mail Online ) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11361567/Putin-accuses-West-fueling-war-Ukraine-destabilising-world-latest-rant.html

● SUMMARY: Vladimir Putin has declared the “age of western domination is over” and called for a “new world order” in a major foreign policy speech in Moscow. He also downplayed the “need” for Russia to use nuclear weapons after months of Armageddon scare-mongering from Kremlin mouthpieces. Laying out his warped view of global politics, Putin accused westerners of “fanning the flames” of war in both Ukraine and Taiwan, of sparking a global energy crisis, and of causing a food crisis. Putin warned the world has entered its most dangerous period since the Second World War and a “new world order”  must emerge in which Russia gets a bigger say. “The West is no longer able to dictate its will to humankind but still tries to do it, and the majority of nations no longer want to tolerate it,”

● SIGNIFICANCE: Putin is thought to have a significant physical illness, is emotionally unstable, and is an evil war-mongerer. He threatens to use nuclear weapons, while making jokes and smirking about “sending everyone to Heaven in a nuclear war” (see Putin smirks as he’s asked about ‘sending everyone to heaven’ | News | Independent TV , October 29, 2022). The United States and the West are threatened with nuclear attack from Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran (if Iran’s weapons have been completed). Is America prepared for a nuclear war on this many fronts? Let’s see. The Commander-in-Chief spends much of his time vacationing at his home or on the beach in Delaware. And, the armed forces is undermanned due to flagging recruitments. And, we have sent many of our weapons to Ukraine. But, all is not bleak. Our military personnel know how to use gender pronouns properly and which bathrooms are available for transgender soldiers. So there, Mad Vlad, we have you covered!

►TITLE (DATE): Top China watcher: Why is U.S. not reacting as Beijing prepares for war? (October 26, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): WorldNetDaily ( Top China watcher: Why is U.S. not reacting as Beijing prepares for war? (wnd.com) ) https://www.wnd.com/2022/10/top-china-watcher-u-s-not-reacting-beijing-prepares-war/?ats_es=%255B-MD5-%255D

● SUMMARY: Chinese President Xi Jinping’s securing of an unprecedented third term as the Communist Party’s general secretary, his packing of the Politburo with with loyalists, and dramatic removal of his predecessor, Hu Jintao, during the National People’s Congress are ominous signs, warns China scholar Gordon Chang. “The Chinese despot is pushing the region– and the world– toward war, and we are now far closer to conflict than many once thought,” Chang wrote in The Hill.

● SIGNIFICANCE: In my opinion, China is the greatest threat to America and world shalom. Unleashing “the kings of the East” represents the Sixth Bowl (Vial) Judgment of Revelation 16:12. Surely, China must be a major “king” in this blood-thirsty alliance. After nearly seven years of the Tribulation draws to a close, the Antichrist’s army will entrench itself in Israel to prepare for what would be the Battle of Armageddon. Most believe Armageddon is a location in Israel. “Armageddon” is derived from the Hebrew Har Megiddo (“Mountain of Megiddo”). Skipping other combatants to discuss only the 200-million man armed forces of the eastern powers, the Antichrist will be greatly alarmed by news that this massive army is moving toward his forces in Israel. Infrastructure to permit this movement (such as, the Ataturk Dam system to dry up the Euphrates River) is now in place. By the end of the Tribulation, the Kings of the East, representing a major portion of the world’s population, will be able to field a 200-million man armed forces. Exactly as prophesied, the pieces of the end-time puzzle are falling into place and the schedule of prophecy fulfillment is meticulously on time. As the Apostle Peter wrote (2 Peter 1:19): Furthermore, we have the reliable prophetic word. You do well by paying attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

►TITLE (DATE): 10 Things NOT to Do When Someone’s Suffering (October 25, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Christian Headlines (video: 2 minutes, 29 seconds playing time) ( 10 Things NOT to Do When Someone’s Suffering | 10 Things NOT to Do When Someone’s Suffering | By iBelieve.com | Facebook ) https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1611816529335676

● SUMMARY: This video presentation suggests ten things not to say or do to ease another person’s grief.

● SIGNIFICANCE: This entry has nothing to do with end-time prophecy. I am sometimes awkward around persons who have experienced death of a loved one. If you share this awkwardness, you may find some of these suggestions useful.

►TITLE (DATE): 5 Christlike Ways to Handle Disagreements (October 24, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Crosswalk ( 5 Christlike Ways to Handle Disagreements (crosswalk.com) )  https://www.crosswalk.com/family/singles/5-christlike-ways-to-handle-disagreements.html

● SUMMARY: In life, there will always be conflict. No matter how much we try to avoid it, there will always be people who share different opinions than we do. If both parties are passionate about their opinions, believing each is correct, this results in conflict. Believers often avoid conflict because they think it’s not Messiah-like. They believe it is not being gracious by asserting themselves or their opinions on others. Believers also fear not being liked. Yeshua embodied grace, but He also set firm boundaries with others, especially those who did not want to put God and His will first in their lives.

● SIGNIFICANCE: I deeply detest conflict with others, and try to avoid it whenever  possible. When a conflict is resolved, it is my experience that both sides may seem foolish and childish. The Bible has much to say about living in peace with neighbors, including: (Matthew 5:9): [Yeshua said] “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” AND (Romans 12:18): If possible, so far as it depends on you, live in shalom with all people.

►TITLE (DATE): 3 Things That Are Revealed about God When Joseph Interprets Dreams (October 24, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Crosswalk ( 3 Things That Are Revealed about God When Joseph Interprets Dreams (crosswalk.com) ) https://www.crosswalk.com/faith/bible-study/things-that-are-revealed-about-god-when-joseph-interprets-dreams.html

● SUMMARY: In Genesis, Joseph interprets dreams in powerful ways. The ways God helps Joseph interpret dreams reveal a lot about how God works in our own lives today. As we learn how God helped Joseph with dream interpretation, we can enjoy awe, strengthen our faith, and trust God more– no matter what circumstances we’re facing.

● SIGNIFICANCE: Study Adonai’s help with Joseph’s dreams to apply to dreams you may have.

►TITLE (DATE): Israel’s Future Validates Our Hope as New Testament Saints (October 24, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): jonathanbrentner.com ( Israel’s Future Restoration Validates Our Hope as New Testament Saints — Jonathan Brentner ) https://www.jonathanbrentner.com/https/jonathan-brentner-g8fgsquarespacecom/config/2022/10/24/israels-future-restoration-validates-our-glorious-hope

● SUMMARY: “Israel’s future guarantees our salvation.” Amir Tsarfati began his sermon with these words while speaking at Calvary Chapel Church in Kaneohe, Hawaii. As I [Jonathan Brentner] listened to his message, I realized his assertion was totally correct. In my book, The Triumph of the Redeemed, I wrote: “Consider this: If God can break His covenants with such Old Testament champions of the faith as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David, what does that say about His promises regarding our salvation? If God can renege on His unconditional promises to Israel, ones He repeated many times throughout the writings of the prophets and in the Psalms, what does that say about our security?”

● SIGNIFICANCE: The author explores certain Biblical truths and how they extend to our salvation promise, including: (1) the Father cannot break His promise to His son; (2) a future restored Israel maintains the integrity of Scripture; (3) the consistency of Biblical interpretation; (4) the sun is shining outside my office window; (5) denying what the Bible says about Israel’s restoration opens the door to heresy; (6) God says His covenant of the land with Israel is everlasting; (7) the seventieth “week” (shabua) of Daniel 9:24-27 remains unfulfilled to his day; (8) Yeshua’s response to the disciples’ question verifies God’s intent to restore Israel; and (9) Israel’s miraculous reemergence as a nation is a necessary first step in the fulfillment of end-time prophecy.

● SIDELIGHT: God’s Covenant People (now, Jews) have been removed from their Covenant Land (now, Israel) three times, but God faithfully brought them back home all three times. The aliyah (return of globally dispersed Jews to end the Diaspora, commonly dated to 1948) to form the nation of Israel is unique in the history of the world and is nothing short of a miracle. Only God could have orchestrated the rebirth of Israel. As author Brentner points out in this article, a Believer should take the fulfillment of God’s promise to the sons and daughters of Abraham as reassurance that He will keep His promise to His other children (Believers) that His most important promise– salvation and eternal life– will also be fulfilled. END sidelight.

►TITLE (DATE): NHS Warns Most Trans-Identifying Children Going Through ‘Transient Phase’ (October 24, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): National Review ( NHS & Transgenderism: NHS Warns Most Trans-Identifying Children Going Through ‘Transient Phase’ | National Review ) https://www.nationalreview.com/news/nhs-warns-most-trans-identifying-children-going-through-transient-phase/

● SUMMARY: The National Health Services (NHS) of England, the country’s publicly funded healthcare provider, has warned that most children who identify as transgender are experiencing a “transient phase.” The statement is reflective of “evidence that in most cases gender incongruence does not persist into adolescence,” the NHS report states. In light of the report, the NHS will adopt a more cautious approach to treating gender dysphoria in minors, banning the use of puberty blockers in patients under 18 but for strict clinical trials.

● SIGNIFICANCE: I am a retired physician. I cannot condemn enough my fellow physicians who perform abortions (except for exceptional reasons, including efforts to save the lives of mothers), who perform castration and penectiomies on little boys to “transition” them to little girls, and and who perform hysterectomies and mastectomies on little girls to “transition” them to little boys. The British NHS has determined that gender dysphoria is a phase, which will most likely pass. When I was a boy, I wanted to be the next Bob Feller (a famous pitcher at the time) and play for the Cleveland Indians. (Was I the only boy who wanted to play for the Indians?) As I grew a little older, I realized I was not Major League material and abandoned my “dream.” In having this boyish fantasy of being a Major League pitcher, I fortunately lost no body parts. We all need to step back and seek the wisdom of God’s Word (Genesis 5:2a): Male and female [Adonai] created [humans],…. We need to abandon child mutilation to achieve some adults’ “woke” ideas of “correcting God’s mistake.” We are warned not to substitute evil for good (Isaiah 5:20-21): Oy to those who call evil good and good evil, who present darkness as light and light as darkness, who present bitter as sweet, and sweet as bitter! Oy to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight! Isaiah continue this passage to explain punishments that will befall humans who  substitute their wisdom for God’s wisdom. The “woke” crowd claims there are at least 81 genders and gender identities ( 81 Types of Genders & Gender Identities (A to Z List) (2022) (helpfulprofessor.com) ). Gender dysphoria may be a transient phase, but the surgical “treatment” is permanent and irreversible.

►TITLE (DATE): America Is Being Destroyed Before Your Very Eyes (October 23, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Fox News Channel ( Mark Levin: ‘America is being destroyed’ before your very eyes – YouTube ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orsEiSBgDug

● SUMMARY: This YouTube clip is a 12-minute, 14-second replay of Mark Levin, Fox News commentator, hosting his “Life, Liberty & Levin” program. Be warned that Mr. Levin and this program are politically conservative. Watch the clip only if you want a conservative’s viewpoint about the state of affairs in the United States.

● SIGNIFICANCE: The United States is now engaged in a battle royale to determine the course our country will follow in the immediate future. Conservatives have one approach, such approach being fought by progressives (liberals) and others. The winning viewpoint will dramatically shape the United States and the world.

►TITLE (DATE): Americans Trust the Government More than the Church to Make ‘Meaningful Change:’ Barna (October 21, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Christian Headlines ( Americans Trust the Gov’t More than the Church to Make ‘Meaningful Change’: Barna – Michael Foust (christianheadlines.com) ) https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/americans-trust-the-govt-more-than-the-church-to-make-meaningful-change-barna.html

● SUMMARY: Americans are twice as likely to say the government is responsible for creating “meaningful change” in the nation than they are to say the same about the church, according to a new Barna survey. The poll found that 52 percent of U.S. adults believe the national government is “responsible for creating meaningful change,” while only 26 percent answered that way about religious organizations and 25 percent about Christian churches.

● SIGNIFICANCE: Organized religious institutions are failing the “called out ones” (the B’rit Chadashah Greek ekkleseia, commonly called “the church”). “The church” (Yeshua’s Body) has been inflicted with numerous assaults and wounds by Believers who fail to grasp Yeshua’s teachings. One of two remaining end-time church types is epitomized in Yeshua’s letter to the congregation in Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22). Yeshua realized that Believers’ faith would fall shortly before His return (Luke 18:8b): [Yeshua said] “… But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” To have more faith in highly corrupt government of man than in faith based on God in Three Persons is outrageous and deeply disturbing.

►TITLE (DATE): UN report denounces Israel’s ‘unlawful occupation,’ demands prosecution of officials (October 21, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): The Times of Israel ( UN report denounces Israel’s ‘unlawful occupation,’ demands prosecution of officials | The Times of Israel) https://www.timesofisrael.com/un-report-slams-israels-unlawful-occupation-demands-prosecution-of-officials/

● SUMMARY: The United Nations’ Commission of Inquiry investigating rights abuses in Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip released its second report, calling on the Security Council to end Israel’s “permanent occupation,” and on individual UN member states to prosecute Israeli officials. The commission cited “reasonable grounds” to conclude that Israel’s presence in the West Bank “is now unlawful under international law due to its permanence” as well as the Israeli government’s “de facto annexation policies.”

● SIGNIFICANCE: Several Bible prophecies warn of persecution of Israel, Jews, and Believers in the last days. The United Nations (a precursor of the Unholy Trinity’s one-world government?) seems to always side with the Palestinians and against Israel. We should realize that such bias merely confirms God’s warning to the world and that every hostile act against Israel brings us closer to the Messiah’s return.

►TITLE (DATE): Why Are We So Certain of Our Hope in Jesus’ Appearing? (October 19, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): jonathanbrentner.com ( Why Are We so Certain of Our Hope in Jesus’ Appearing? — Jonathan Brentner ) https://www.jonathanbrentner.com/https/jonathan-brentner-g8fgsquarespacecom/config/2022/10/19/will-your-anchor-hold-during-perilous-times

● SUMMARY: We live in “perilous times” on steroids. In one sense, the characteristics that Paul wrote about in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 have been true of godless people through the ages. Such people have always made life “perilous” for those with biblical faith. On the other hand, these characteristics have become much more prominent in our world during the past several decades and have greatly intensified during just the past few years. These attributes are a contributing factor to the dramatic increase in wickedness and lawlessness in our world. Nothing in history rivals the widespread deception that has permeated virtually every nation in the world.

● SIGNIFICANCE: Believers have anticipated Yeshua’s return for centuries. He has not yet returned, as hoped for. Such well-meaning Believers were wrong because they did not understand Yeshua’s messages about His return. An important message was given in the Parable of the Fig Tree (Matthew 24:32-35). As long as the Jews were removed from Israel (the Diaspora from AD 70 until AD 1948), He could not return. When the Jews began returning from the Diaspora (in the twentieth century), the generation alive at that time would not all die until Yeshua returned in the clouds to call Believers home to be with Him. Jonathan Brentner summarizes some reasons we should anticipate the soon return of Yeshua. Paul told us to wait with anticipation and hope (Titus 2:13): We wait for the blessed hope and appearance of the glory of our great God and Savior, Messiah Yeshua.

►TITLE (DATE): We Worry About Perilous Times… They Are Here in Every Country (October 18, 2022)

● SOURCE (URL): Church of the Living God ( CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD: WE WORRY ABOUT PERILOUS TIMES…..THEY ARE HERE IN EVERY COUNTRY. (pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com) ) https://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/2022/10/we-worry-about-perilous-timesthey-are.html

● SUMMARY: The apostle Paul warned that in the last days, the end of this age, we would see perilous times– a time when men would grow exponentially more evil in their practices than in any other time before. Now men have always been sinners, but the expression of evil that has entered into our times is unprecedented. When combined with Paul’s thought in 2 Timothy 3:13, that evil men and seducers will wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived, the Greek grammar gives the sense of conditions or expressions of human nature that ebb and flow like waves of the sea, rather than a constant state of affairs. Recall Yeshua’s comments about the days of Noah to appreciate that the situation will be especially intense in our time.

● SIGNIFICANCE: Pastor Mike Taylor summarizes some features of present and future “perilous times.”

CONCLUSION: I could add many more news reports and commentaries published in October, which I found relevant to the mess in which we find ourselves today, but I have out-written the space allotted to me. All of these items tell us that the end of the age is near, a loving God has warned us of this end in the Holy Bible, and Yeshua will soon return to call Believers home to be evermore with Him.

Several items in this RR speak of impending war. We must go through such things as the nuclear destruction of Damascus, Syria; the Battle of Gog and Magog; and (if unfortunate) the Tribulation wars. As much as we hate wars, these wars must come (Matthew 24:6-7a): [Yeshua said] “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must happen but it is not yet the end. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom….” He reiterated that these things must happen before His return (Matthew 24:8): [Yeshua said] “But all these things are only the beginning of birth pains.”

We are beginning to feel the early “birth pains” of the end of the Age of Grace. Rejoice. The Lord’s appearance is one day sooner today, than it was yesterday. No matter what may happen in the future at the evil hands of Satan– and his minions of Putin, Jinping, and others– a Believer’s future is unfathomably bright and glorious. No matter what happens in this Earth, our true home is in New Jerusalem, or Heaven (among multiple Scriptures, Philippians 3:20-21): For our citizenship is in heaven, and from there we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. He will transform this humble body of ours into the likeness of His glorious body, through the power that enables Him even to put all things in subjection to Himself. Until next Sunday, Shalom and Maranatha.
