Isaiah 57, warning against idolatry, hope and peace for the contrite, no peace for the wicked.

No longer did Israel follow the commands in Deuteronomy:

April 19th is known as “the Feast of Moloch”.  If you are not familiar with “Moloch” or “Molech”, it is an ancient Canaanite god that is repeatedly denounced in the Old Testament.  Child sacrifice was a key feature of the worship of Moloch, and a giant statue of this pagan deity is set up at the Bohemian Grove in northern California every year.aaamolech1

Again, many high school plays are performed displaying this scripture. What is the play?

John 14, dwelling places, the way, the truth and life, Jesus going away and giving another Comforter.

Another Comforter: αλλον παρακλητον ( allon parakleton) meaning one of the same kind as Jesus.

Some Muslims say the Bible has been altered and should have read perikleton rather than parakleton, claming the Bible has been falsified to fit Jewish and Christian beliefs and only the Quran is true.

This requires many steps of faith on account of the Muslims. 1. Jesus, Mary and Moses were really Muslims and spoke of Muhammad. 2. The New Testament is falsified.  3.  Ignore the Dead Sea Scrolls, and 4. When Jesus speaks of the Spirit of Truth he really means Muhammad, not the Holy Spirit as He says in verse 26.

As a Christian I am free to take God’s Word for what it says.

President Trump’s first foreign trip for peace, salaam, shalom; a Limerick. (Update 1)

Arabia, Israel, Rome;

then Belgium and Sicily, Home.

Donald Trump has the strength

and he talks to great length:

Bring peace, and salaam, and shalom!

This I call a welcome peace gesture!

Shalom! President Trump meets with Benyamin Netanyahu who said:

“I … look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region — because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers are turning former enemies into partners. That’s where we see something new and potentially something very promising. It won’t be simple. But for the first time in many years — and, Mr. President, for the first time in my lifetime — I see a real hope for change.”

Off to Bethlehem to meet with President Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas made no concessions and will continue to reward the families of “Martyred” terrorists when their sons have killed Israelis.

Over to Rome to meet the Pope. Melania is again getting properly dressed for the occasion.

The audience with the Pope started out tense, but at the end all were smiles.

After meeting with the Pope President Trump said: “Thank you. I won’t forget what you said.” Later  he tweeted: Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I leave the Vatican more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world.

After the private audience the Pope was all smiles and even cracked a joke with Melania Trump. His Holiness the Pope asked Melania (in Italian): What do you feed your husband? ‘Potica?’  Melania laughed and answered in Italian “Potica, si”, the perfect answer. After all, Melania is fluent in six languages: Slovenian, Serbo-Croatian, Italian, German, English and conversational French. The Pope is fluent in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, German, Ukrainian and Piedmontese  and, of course, Latin.

The it was off to Belgium to meet the King and Queen. Melania Trump was again dressed in a bluish grey dress and coat, a color perfectly suited for the country of Belgium.

Will the rest of the trip bring forth peace? Tomorrow is NATO and then off to Sicily and G7. Keep praying.
