Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are happy to see you.

The end-time evangelism was not sent to preach confessing heathens out of darkness into Light (Matthew 28:18-20), but to awaken the virgin asleep in the denominational darkness of Rome and her once Protestant daughters and preach Christ's Bride into the rapture (Revelation 18:1-4; I Thessalonians 4:16). Although William Branham's ministry restored the apostolic faith and finished the mystery of God (Malachi 4:5-6; Revelation 10:7), most within the circle of this Message have the "letter only," and without God's "quickening Spirit" their understanding remains overshadowed by the traditions of men. Our guest contributor, Pastor Eli James from Chicago, chops down this denominational overgrowth to bring Christ and Lucifer, the Tree of Life and the intellectual Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, into open ground (Ezekiel 28:12-13).

Pastor James hosts two radio talk-shows and is the author of, "The Great Impersonation: How the Anti-Christ Has Deceived the Whole World." His contribution exposes the duplicitous philosophy of those who have launched vexatious and frivolous litigation against your Church and Christianity generally. It is presented for the edification and correction of those who love our Lord Jesus Christ and desire to serve Him more perfectly through the knowledge of the Truth (John 8:32).

In a court hearing last year the Judge asked me what I thought of the Jew's religion. If he is sincerely seeking to know the answer he will find it in the mind of God expressed in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible upon which he asks witnesses to swear to speak the truth. I believe he is obligated to understand the Book upon which he calls others to take oath. He seems not to realize that God gave all men free moral agency. Jews like everyone else are entitled to worship as and what they choose. His question was uncalled-for since we have never interfered with their liberty, and throughout the twelve years during which they have insulted and defamed us in the national media by a series of unprovoked baseless and foolish lies that have created a false record in media agencies throughout the nation, we have "turned the other cheek".

Those who heed the "Shout" of the Message will grow to maturity in the unity of the faith by the "Voice of the Archangel," which in His earthly sojourn exposed the false identity, fraudulent history and unscriptural religion of those God set at enmity with the children of Adam, the descendants of Israel and the Kingdom of God, which is His Church (Genesis 3:15). "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever," separating Light from darkness.

The great flurry of media reports in recent weeks stating senior officials in the US Administration, from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, Colin Powell, Condaleesa Rice and the CIA's George Tenet, to the janitor, were all warned by intelligence sources that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda were about to attack the WTC appear to be orchestrated to point the finger away from the reality that 9/11 was an "inside job" for the City of London.

Now for the Good News: the teaching sermon Le Stature de l'Homme Parfait has been added to our French language area.

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Your brother-in-Christ,

Christian, Muslim, Sikh and Jewish: Multi-Faith Coronation for Charles

September 24, 2006 – The coronation of the Prince of Wales will be a "multi-faith" event. Prayers and readings from other denominations and religions, including from the Muslim, Sikh and Jewish faiths, are expected to be included in the ceremonies marking Prince Charles's accession to the throne. Canon John Hall, the Dean-elect of Westminster Abbey, said that the traditional Church of England coronation service must be revised to reflect society's changes since the Queen's coronation in 1953. . . "We need to recognize the reality of religion at the heart of our national life. Rather than hold it possessively, it has become possible to help to create space for other religions within our national life. It is leading to inclusion and cohesion." The proposed changes follow comments made by Prince Charles, who has said that he wants to be "Defender of Faith," not "Defender of the Faith," when he succeeds to the throne. . . Full story: telegraph.co.uk

Comment: Faith is a clear revelation of the mind of God. As God is infallible He is not double-minded and can never change His Mind, there is but one faith that is hidden from Cannon John Hall and Prince Charles.


Footballer cautioned for blessing Himself

August 27, 2006 – A Roman Catholic footballer who blessed himself during a match has been cautioned by police after it was decided his behaviour had been provocative and had led to crowd trouble.

Fans complained after Artur Boruc, the Polish goalkeeper for Glasgow Celtic, crossed himself during a derby with arch-rivals Rangers at Ibrox stadium, Rangers' home ground, in February.

The teams have strong religious associations, Celtic seen as Catholic and Rangers as Protestant. As crossing oneself is a Catholic tradition, it might be seen as provocative by some Rangers fans. Boruc is a practicing Catholic and says he has always made such gestures while playing.

After an investigation by the procurator fiscal—the Scottish crown prosecutor—it was decided that Boruc's behaviour provoked alarm and crowd trouble and constituted a breach of the peace, but not one serious enough to warrant court action. . . Full story: timesonline.co.uk


Treasures looted by Rome 'are back in the Holy Land'

Papal Keys

September 25, 2006 – A collection of sacred artefacts looted by the Romans from the Temple of Jerusalem and long suspected of being hidden in the vaults of the Vatican are actually in the Holy Land, according to a British archaeologist. Sean Kingsley, a specialist in the Holy Land, claims to have discovered what became of the collection, which is widely regarded as the greatest of biblical treasures and includes silver trumpets that would have heralded the Coming of the Messiah. The trumpets, gold candelabra and the bejewelled Table of the Divine Presence were among pieces shipped to Rome after the looting in AD70 of the Temple, the most sacred building in the ancient Jewish faith.

In Chronographia, which spanned AD284 to 813, Theophanes recorded that Gaiseric, king of the Vandals, loaded the treasures that "Titus had brought to Rome after the capture of Jerusalem" on a boat to Carthage in Tunisia in AD455. In the first holy crusade in AD533, the Byzantine Belisarius seized the treasure from a royal ship fleeing the Algerian harbour of Hippo Regius. It was then shipped to Constantinople, the capital of Byzantium. In the 7th century, Persians sacked Jerusalem, killing thousands of Christians, and dragging the Patriarch, Zacharias, to Persia. Dr Kingsley believes that his replacement, Modestus, spirited away the treasures to their final hiding place in AD614. Full story: timesonline.co.uk


YOM KIPPUR: The Day of Atonement

karpparot

While many modern Jews consider the practice barbaric . . . A chicken is slain by a rabbi, (a white rooster for a male, hen for a female), then the owner of the chicken takes it by the legs and swings it around over his head, while reciting a prayer to God that all his sins during the year be transferred to the chicken. This practice presumably arose as a substitute for the azazel, the "scapegoat" described the Torah, which also symbolically received the sins of the people and carried them out of the camp. In these customs we see another of the many pictures we find throughout the Tanakh, symbolic of the atoning Messiah who was to come, about whom the prophet said "the Lord visited on him the guilt of us all" (Isaiah 53:6). Full story: amfi.org

Comment: Evolutionists will wait a long time for a chicken to morph into the kinsman Redeemer of Leviticus 25 and the Book of Ruth. Chickens are not man's "near kinsmen" as the Israelitish high priest Caiaphas acknowledged when he said, "You know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 16:7-8). In Leviticus 23, Moses prophesied the hour, day, and month, while Daniel prophesied the day, month and year in which Israel and the Jews would kill that Man, Jesus Messiah.

Leviticus 23:23-32 commands all Israelites to "afflict their soul" on the Day of Atonement, acting in pantomime how the remnant 144,000 will mourn when they recognize the nation murdered Messiah (Daniel 9:24; Zechariah 12:10-14). Jews magnify the offence with the mockery of chicken kapparot.


Kol Nidre: Prayer of the Synagogue of Satan

By Pastor Eli James

Psalm 64, "Lord, listen to my complaint: Oh preserve my life early from the conspiracy of these wicked men, from the noisy gangs of criminals. They cut me down with sharpened tongues; they aim their bitter words like arrows straight to my heart. They shoot from ambush at the innocent, shooting unexpectedly and without self-reproach. They encourage each other to do evil. They meet in secret to set their traps; they say, Who can see us? They keep a sharp lookout for opportunities of crime, for the inward thought of every one of is deep. But God Himself shall shoot an unlooked-for arrow, and they will be wounded suddenly, because their own tongue will bring them to ruin, and all who see it shall scoff at them. Then everyone shall stand in awe, proclaim this act of God, and learn to know His work. The righteous shall rejoice in the Lord, and trust in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glorify Him".

Introduction

I believe it was Cicero who said, "The first casualty of war is the Truth." The second casualty is innocence, because even the innocent are thrown into the fire unwillingly; and innocence turns into doubt and cynicism. Their pastors tell them, We are all "saved."God loves everybody".

"Does God love Satan, Cain and Esau?" And what of their followers and kinsmen? Would they not use lies as their principal weapon against the children of God?

Those who call upon the lovely Name of our Lord Jesus Christ must wake up to the fact that Judaism is a religion of lies. That so few people understand this demonstrates how well the rabbis and their followers conceal their conceit for themselves and their hatred for Christianity. But certain undeniable facts emerge which cannot be explained away. The Kol Nidre prayer is one such undeniable fact.

One of the biggest lies the rabbis have passed off to an unsuspecting humanity is that Judaism is the religion of the Old Testament. But Judaism is the antithesis of Yahweh Torah, the faith of ancient Israel. In order to convince us of their authority, the rabbis frequently mention the Torah and make a great show of parading the scrolls over their heads in processions. The Old Testament was written by Moses and the prophets: some were Levitical priests; none were rabbis, and none were Jews.

As a rule "Torah" means Talmud, the deceit being justified as the alias "Oral Torah." The word "Torah" does not refer to the Bible in Sanhedrin 59a: "A heathen who studies the Torah deserves death, for it is written, Moses commanded us a law for an inheritance; it is our inheritance, not theirs" (Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. V, "Gentiles" p. 619-622).

Moses was not a Jew, he was an Israelite. The Jewish people emerged from the forced assimilation of the Edomites with the Israelite people of Judea in about 126BC under John Hyrcanus. During the chaotic transition from Greek to Roman rule, Antipater, an Idumean and the father of Herod the Great, laid the foundation for Herod's ascension to the throne of Judea by currying favour with Rome. Thus a descendant of Esau would seek to recover the blessing forfeited to Jacob, in vain setting up a natural so-called Jewish kingdom to rival Messiah's spiritual kingdom as it was being fore-announced by John the Baptist.

Popular ignorance of the Jewish religion and Jewish people is endemic in Christendom as is ignorance of Christianity itself. "Christendom is destroyed for lack of knowledge: because it has rejected knowledge, God has rejected Christendom"  (Hosea 4:6; Revelation 18:4).

Jesus said, "If you continue in My Word, you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32). Christians need to become aware of the fact that Judaism is not the religion of the Old Testament. Judaism is the Great Pretender, a hybrid religion that appropriated the Old Testament and then claimed authorship. The Bible is NOT a Jewish Book, and Jesus was NOT a Jew. The reality is, Judaism is a religion of lies that impersonates the faith of Israel as the Jewish people impersonate the Israelite race. The Persecution Myth promoted from cradle to grave by the rabbis is a rationalization for their pre-emptive "do unto others before they do unto you".

Let's see what the Bible and Jesus Himself had to say about these Jews: "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for He would not walk in Jewry because the Jews sought to kill Him" (John 7:1).

"You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? Behold, I will send you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: some of them you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar. Truly I tell you, All these things shall come upon this generation" (Matthew 23:33-36).

"You are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it" (John 8:44).

Shorter Oxford English Dictionary on Historical Principles concurs: the second meaning of the noun "Jew" is "applied to a grasping or extortionate usurer, or a trader who drives hard bargains or deals craftily;" while the verb means, "to cheat or overreach."

The typical Judeo-Christian, (an oxymoron), is unaware that Jesus spoke in such grave condemnation of the Jews because unregenerate ministers ignorantly present them as "G-d's chosen people," but the word "Jew," coined in the late eighteenth century, means "Judean" (Strong's Concordance #2453: Ioudaios, meaning "of a country," "Judean"), that is, any person who is a resident of Judea regardless of religion or race. The Israelites of the House of Judah were just one of several ethnic groups that inhabited Judea at that time so it is erroneous to suggest that all Judeans were of the Tribe or House of Judah. Jerusalem was a cosmopolitan city at the crossroads of international trade. Jews were Judeans who pretended to be of the race and heritage of Judah.

The rabbis use the word "Jew" masterfully to deceive the world into thinking these people are Judahites and therefore Israelites. King Herod is a perfect example of this subterfuge. He was a non-Judahite Idumean who became a Judean by residency. This rabbinical deception prevents men from differentiating Judahites who were Israelites of the House of Judah from Edomites who became Judeans by citizenship. As we come out of Babylon, we must bring our brothers and sisters, parents and children out with us. The contradictions between the words and the reality must not be compromised. We must speak the truth in love, and they must learn to read the Bible.

Judaism and the Tradition of Hypocrisy

Jesus said: "Beware the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy" (Luke 12:1). The religion known as "Judaism" today was called "Pharisaism" in the time of Jesus and was not the faith of Moses and the prophets (Rabbi Louis Finkelstein, The Pharisees, The Sociological Background of Their Faith, p. XXI; Matthew 15:1-9).

Now, no hypocrite will ever admit to being one. The case must be proven because the perpetrator will never incriminate himself. However, the Pharisees have exposed their hand in this regard. They have composed a prayer which glorifies hypocrisy. Centuries old, it is recited by every pious Orthodox Jew three times at their annual Day of Atonement ritual.

Here is the text of the prayer:

"All vows, obligations, oaths or anathemas, pledges of all names, which we have vowed, sworn, devoted, or bound ourselves to, from this day of atonement, until the next day of atonement (whose arrival we hope for in happiness) we repent, aforehand, of them all, they shall all be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, void and made of no effect; they shall not be binding, nor have any power; the vows shall not be reckoned as vows, the obligations shall not be obligatory, nor the oaths considered as oaths." (The Jewish Encyclopedia, Volume VIII, p. 539 further exposes this hypocrisy; also, William N. Grimstad, Talk About Hate, Colorado Springs, Colorado: Council on Hate Crime, 1999, p. 254).

The first question any Christian should ask is this: "How can anyone who disavows all vows for the coming year be trusted?" Can such a person make an honest, guileless statement, or are all of his pronouncements filled with guile and wile, just waiting for the opportunity to test the innocent and naïve Christian?

The Jewish Talmud is full of commands that Jews should take advantage of Christians whenever they can get away with it. (See the Talmud, Baba Kamma 113a; 37b; Baba Mezia 24a; Sanhedrin 57a; 76a). Fear of retribution is the only thing preventing them from practicing the Kol Nidre moment by moment. The ancient idea of a Jewish Utopia is one in which only Jewish law applies. (Their Noahide Laws were introduced in the United States by presidential decree in 1991). The Kol Nidre is the signature of Judaism and reveals the true nature of the Jewish mind. No other type of mind would conceive or recite such a prayer.

Two Witnesses

For this analysis of the Kol Nidre, I am going to rely on two witnesses, both Jewish. My first witness will be an article by Rabbi Michael Balinsky entitled "Why Kol Nidre?" It was published in the Jewish United Fund News of September 1995 (page 79). Rabbi Balinsky is a Jew's Jew, one who faithfully and shamelessly promotes Judaism over all other faiths. I am first going to reproduce his article in toto so that you can read it for yourself without any input from me. But I do want you to take note of any rabbinical doublespeak and rationalizations that I will analyze later. Then with Samuel Roth, author of the book, Jews Must Live, I will take it apart in the next section. His book exposes the duplicity of Judaism and how this duplicity infects the minds of individuals and their culture.

Why Kol Nidre?

By Rabbi Michael Balinsky
Special to JUF News

The setting for Kol Nidre on Yom Kippur is religious theater par excellence. The Ark is open; the Torahs surround the Bima; the element of white, signifying purity, is abundant; and the haunting melody of Kol Nidre awakens in us the awareness that today our lives hang in the balance.
But as the chazzan begins to sing the words, and you begin to look at them, questions arise. It is as if the form is much more important than the content.
Why begin this day with a prayer, Kol Nidre, that fails to mention G-d and the important themes we associate with the day: repentance, atonement, life and death?
Why recite what is, in essence, a highly technical legal formula that appears to be far from uplifting?
If anything, it is the opposite. The words admit failure; we will not succeed and fulfil what we claim.
More poignantly, we begin Yom Kippur by directly contradicting an explicit biblical law that commands us to fulfil our vows and forbids us to relinquish them (Numbers 30:2). To begin Yom Kippur by reciting Kol Nidre, a prayer that releases us from our vows, violates a commandment from the Torah, and seems a most peculiar way to begin a day in which we seek forgiveness.
The questions are not new, and many have offered approaches to deal with them. I want to suggest an additional approach, synthesized in part from material gleaned from many teachers.
The idea that forgiveness is possible for the Jewish people is rooted in the biblical narratives of the golden calf episode in Exodus 32-34 and the spies' journey to Israel in Numbers 13-14. These chapters should be studied with particular attention to the prayers of Moses to G-d and their use in the Yom Kippur liturgy.
Forgiveness is possible because of the precedent of the golden calf story, in which G-d forgives the Jewish people for their sin of idolatry. The root of G-d's forgiveness is found in Exodus 34:6-8, in the 13 attributes of G-d, which constitute the central part of the Slichot prayers leading up to and including Yom Kippur. Without them, Yom Kippur would not be possible.
When the people built the calf and began to worship it, Moses was on Mt. Sinai receiving the Torah from G-d. When G-d informed him of what was taking place, and His decision to destroy the people, Moses pleaded with G-d not to do it. The text says, "Vayhal Moshe." (Exodus 32:11), and Moses implored G-d. A brilliant connection is made between the word "vayehal" here (Exodus 32:11) and "yo yahel devaro" (Numbers 30:2), a person cannot annul his vow.
Commenting on this passage, the Rabbis qualify (without any solid textual basis for doing so) that others may release one from his vow. A person must keep his word, but another person has the authority to release him from his vow. Playing on the similarity in words, vayehal and lo yahel, the Rabbis suggest that, while on Mt. Sinai, Moses released G-d from his decision to destroy the people.
Put more dramatically, Moses recited Kol Nidre for G-d.
The implication is that our recitation of Kol Nidre is not only for ourselves, but also for G-d. We begin Yom Kippur by declaring that the Jewish people must live. Beyond that, we assert that our role on Yom Kippur is similar to that of Moses, praying for forgiveness for the Jewish people.
This may also be a key reason for the fast. The Torah records that while Moses was on Mt. Sinai, he neither ate nor drank (Exodus 34:28). Standing in the presence of G-d and praying for the Jewish people placed Moses beyond the need for physical sustenance. It is possible, then, that our fast is not a symbol of affliction and need, but rather, a recognition that, like Moses, we pray to G-d unencumbered by the need for physical nourishment.
According to tradition, it was on Yom Kippur, after Moses had procured forgiveness for the people, that he descended from Mt. Sinai with the Tablets containing the Ten Commandments. Thus, the day became etched as a day of forgiveness and reconciliation. The Rabbis add that in addition to the Tablets, Moses came down with the Oral Law that G-d had taught him while on Mt. Sinai.
Fundamental to Jewish belief is the notion that the Torah comprises two halves: the written Torah, the Five Books of Moses, and the Oral Torah, the process of interpretation and exegesis. For a Jew to study Torah is to engage both the Written Torah and the Oral Torah of interpretation. This means that Yom Kippur is not only a holiday of forgiveness, but also the holiday that celebrates the inauguration of the Oral Torah.
We begin Yom Kippur with Kol Nidre, the prime example of this Oral Torah. The Written Torah is explicit (Numbers 30:2); vows must be fulfiled. As noted above, the Oral Torah, with no real basis in the Written Torah, comments that others can release a person from his vow, a conclusion that emerges only from an interpretive tradition. The Oral Torah, in this case, radically reinterprets the Written Torah. And the prime illustration of the validity of this process of interpretation is Kol Nidre. Our foremost teacher is Moses, who boldly released G-d from his vow to destroy the people, and in doing so began the legacy of Oral Torah, courageously and brilliantly interpreting the word of G-d.
The possibility of repentance, so central to Yom Kippur, shares a similar theme with the Oral Torah. As we saw, the Oral Torah enables us to interpret the Written Torah. What appears to be fixed is not absolute. Repentance follows in the same direction. An act which is sinful does not have to be absolutely recorded as such. Through genuine repentance, it can be transformed into a meritorious deed.
Both Oral Torah and repentance are acts of interpretation. No matter how much our lives appear to be rooted in one direction, repentance allows for change, a new direction, and enables us to interpret where we have been and to generate new possibilities.
Kol Nidre is a potent prayer. What at first appears to be merely a legal formula is really a profound statement of Jewish faith. Kol Nidre teaches us that we are heirs to a dynamic tradition that allows us to engage with G-d in a bold manner. It teaches us that our Torah is alive through the Oral Torah. And it reminds us that repentance enables us to have a creative encounter with our lives, in which we can create new directions and interpretations for that which appears to be fixed.

Regarding them all, we regret them. Let them be released, forgiven, erased, null and void. They are not valid nor are they in force. Our vows are not vows. Our prohibitive vows are not prohibitive vows. Our oaths are not oaths.

Commentary on this Jewish Doublespeak

Presented with such an combination of truths, half-truths, fibs and fabrications as contained in the above article, a Christian has to wonder if what is stated can be taken seriously. Is Judaism so at odds with the Bible that any rabbi can simply negate the Law of God by declaring it subservient to the "Oral Torah"?

Deuteronomy 4:2 is explicit:

"You SHALL NOT add unto the word which I COMMAND you, neither shall you diminish ought from it, that you may KEEP the commandments of the Lord your God which I COMMAND you."

Rabbi Balinsky's article admits that there is a whole lot of diminishing and countermanding going on here, illustrating the Eastern philosophy that is the root of the Babylonian Talmud. As Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan explained: "One of the leading principles of the mystics was the sacredness and secrecy of self-knowledge and the true knowledge of the gods. This wisdom was, they thought, unfit for, perhaps even dangerous to, the ordinary human mind; or in any case liable to perversion and misuse, and loss of virtue if revealed to the vulgar and unpurified spirits. Hence they favoured the existence of an outer worship, effective but imperfect, for the profane" (Indian Philosophy). Can Balinsky weasel his way out of this? Let's see how well this rabbi can dance.

The good rabbi admits that Numbers 30:2 is just as explicit as Deuteronomy 4:2; but that does not prevent him from reinterpreting this verse to mean the exact opposite of what it says. This is the rabbinical method and tradition. I can't wait to hear how Deuteronomy 4:2 is confabulated, with "boldness" and "repentance," into allowing all rabbinical opinions to overturn any Scriptural verse that does not suit them. What can we say about a religion that goes around posturing as the safekeeper of God's Law when what they really do is mock it? — pretending to have originated it while at every opportunity they negate it!

I will now comment on select quotes by the good rabbi:


Rabbi Balinsky: The setting for Kol Nidre on Yom Kippur is religious theater par excellence
That it is, just as all of Judaism is a pretence of Mosaicism. Hence, Judaism is theater, par excellence.
Why recite what is, in essence, a highly technical legal formula that appears to be far from uplifting?
If anything, it is the opposite. The words admit failure; we will not succeed and fulfil what we claim.
More poignantly, we begin Yom Kippur by directly contradicting an explicit biblical law that commands us to fulfil our vows and forbids us to relinquish them (Numbers 30:2). To begin Yom Kippur by reciting Kol Nidre, a prayer that releases us from our vows, violates a commandment from the Torah, and seems a most peculiar way to begin a day in which we seek forgiveness.


This is quite a stunning admission. It is not as though the good rabbi does not understand that he is countermanding an explicit command of Moses! We have to ask: "Who is a rabbi to contradict the Word of God?" And "Who are the Jews to presume to contradict the Word of God?" And, is this not that same as putting words in God's mouth?—presuming to speak for God? – Deuteronomy 18:20!

Rabbi Balinsky: Forgiveness is possible because of the precedent of the golden calf story, in which G-d forgives the Jewish people for their sin of idolatry. The root of G-d's forgiveness is found in Exodus 34:6-8, in the 13 attributes of G-d, which constitute the central part of the Slichot prayers leading up to and including Yom Kippur. Without them, Yom Kippur would not be possible.

This is sheer sophistry. Forgiveness is conditional upon confession, repentance and restitution. With the exception of Moses, Joshua and Caleb, few of the adult Israelites who departed Egypt were elect of God, however they were necessary to bear the children who would enter the Land. Having rejected Abraham's grace covenant at Kadesh God placed the nation under the curse of the Mosaic Law. The names of these unbelieving individuals, having committed the unpardonable sin, were already blotted from the Book of Life and they were damned (Numbers 14:26-34; Deuteronomy 1:35; Psalm 95:10-11; Ezekiel 26; John 6:49; Hebrews 3:7-12; 6:4-8; Jude 5).

With regard to the idolatry of the golden calf, "the Lord said to Moses, Whosoever has sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book" (Exodus 32:33). The idolaters had committed the unforgivable sin; it was the nation that was forgiven, not individual Israelites. God's promise was to lead the nation to the Promised Land.


Rabbi Balinsky: When the people built the calf and began to worship it, Moses was on Mt. Sinai receiving the Torah from G-d. When G-d informed him of what was taking place, and His decision to destroy the people, Moses pleaded with G-d not to do it. The text says, "Vayhal Moshe." (Exodus 32:11), and Moses implored G-d. A brilliant connection is made between the word "vayehal" here (Exodus 32:11) and "yo yahel devaro" (Numbers 30:2), a person cannot annul his vow.

Yes, this commandment from Scripture is clear and unequivocal. The only way to disannul such a vow is to plead with the other party to do so. Anything else turns the vow into a lie; and unlike rabbis, He does not approve of cleverly-worded lies. The "good rabbi" is telling us that God approves of these lies! God forgave the nation, not the individual sinners.

Rabbi Balinsky: Commenting on this passage, the Rabbis qualify (without any solid textual basis for doing so) that others may release one from his vow. A person must keep his word, but another person has the authority to release him from his vow.

The obvious implication here is that "another person" means a rabbi. But the Bible allows no such thing. Parties to contracts (vows, obligations, agreements) must renegotiate the terms of the contract in order for any change to take place. Thus, the ONLY person who has any power to change or annul the contract is the person with whom the agreement was made. No third parties have ANY say in such agreements. Only the Jewish religion makes any such contrary claim. But the Commandments are in a completely different category. "THOU SHALT NOT" is not in the form of an agreement. It is a command that we do not the option of disobeying without incurring a penalty. Obviously, the rabbis feel differently.

Rabbi Balinsky: Playing on the similarity in words, vayehal and lo yahel, the Rabbis suggest that, while on Mt. Sinai, Moses released G-d from his decision to destroy the people.

This is ridiculous. More Jewish fables and hocus-pocus! Since when are we allowed to transform a "play on words" into doctrine! Moses did not have the power to "release" the Lord God from anything. If He hears our pleas, it is His pleasure to accept or deny them. No human, including any priest or rabbi, has any power or authority to "release" God from anything. The rabbis employ such language to use as a precedent for later distortions of Scripture. In this case, Rabbi Balinsky uses this language as a false premise for an even more gigantic rationalization.

Put more dramatically, Moses recited Kol Nidre for G-d.

What Satanic insolence! Can you believe this presumptuousness? Is this rabbi not spitting in the face of God? Where is the proof of this statement? What possible evidence could there be for such a ridiculous claim? This is Pharisaic, rabbinical prevarication, through and through! That God would accept such a prayer from Moses would be for Him to deny His declaration that He is the author of Honesty and Truth. You might as well throw the Bible away if you believe what this agent of Lucifer is saying.


Rabbi Balinsky: The implication is that our recitation of Kol Nidre is not only for ourselves, but also for G-d.

This is blasphemy, folks! In other words, God "forgives" false vows in advance! This makes a mockery of Scripture! This is a denial that Truth has any meaning. It denies God's omniscience.

Let me ask you, "Are the thoughts of God eternal?" If you can see this, you will see many things. God is unchangeable in both essence and behaviour. God is infinite in His abilities so therefore He as God must be omniscient. If He is omniscient, then He is not now learning, nor is He taking counsel even with Himself, nor is He at any time adding to His knowledge. If He can add to His knowledge, then He is not omniscient. The best we could say is that sometime He will be. But that is not Scriptural.

He IS omniscient. He has never had a new thought about anything because all His thoughts He has always had and always will have, and knows the end from the beginning because He is God. THUS THE THOUGHTS OF GOD ARE ETERNAL. THEY ARE REAL. They are not simply like a man with a blueprint he has drawn up and which one day will be translated into substance and form, but they are already real and eternal, and part of God. Psalms 139:15-16 explains this as does John 1:1: "The Logos or Word pre-existed time, and the Logos was with God as His unexpressed thoughts, and the Logos was God" (William Branham, An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 149:3).

God's Word is Spirit expressed in a form we can receive by faith and be born of eternal Life (John 6:63). Malachi 3:6, "I am the Lord, I change not." Matthew 24:36, "Heaven and earth shall change, but My Words shall not pass away." If God's Word can change it is not eternal.


Rabbi Balinsky: We begin Yom Kippur by declaring that the Jewish people must live. Beyond that, we assert that our role on Yom Kippur is similar to that of Moses, praying for forgiveness for the Jewish people.

On the contrary, Moses was an Israelite of pure Adamic descent. There was no kinship between Moses and the Jewish people. Since they derive from non-Semitic Ashkenazim (95%) and Sephardic Edomites (5%), there were no Jews at all at Mt. Sinai. There were Israelites but not Jews. The placement of Jews in this scene is rabbinical fabrication designed to falsely equate Jews with Israelites in our minds. But Rabbi Balinsky's implication is even more chilling, namely: "We Jews can "release" God from our vows "just as Moses did." How quaint! How devious! How Luciferian! And you thought you knew something about Judaism!

Rabbi Balinsky: According to tradition, it was on Yom Kippur, after Moses had procured forgiveness for the people, that he descended from Mt. Sinai with the Tablets containing the Ten Commandments. Thus, the day became etched as a day of forgiveness and reconciliation. The Rabbis add that in addition to the Tablets, Moses came down with the Oral Law that G-d had taught him while on Mt. Sinai.

Where is the proof that Moses "came down with the Oral Law"? Where does it say that in Scripture? By whose authority does Rabbi Balinsky make this statement? The rabbis even admit that the Oral Law has no basis in Scripture, so why should anyone take it seriously? If the Written Law is contradicted by the Oral Law, how can the Oral Law possibly supersede the Written Law? Justly did Jesus Messiah say of them: "Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition . . . But in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Now do you understand why the rabbinate hates Jesus with such a passion? Its because He exposed them for the liars, scoundrels and hypocrites that they really are!

In his Foreword to the Soncino Talmud, the Very Rev. The Chief Rabbi Dr. J. H. Hertz wrote: "The Talmud is the product of Palestine, the land of the Bible, and of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilisation. The beginnings of Talmudic literature date back to the time of the Babylonian Exile in the sixth pre-Christian century before the Roman Republic had yet come into existence." In other words, the Oral Law or Talmud had its genesis in Babylon, NOT Egypt.

Still enthusing over the Babylonian derivation of Pharisaism, Rabbi Hertz continues: "When we come to the Babylonian Gemara, we are dealing with what most people understand when they speak or write of the Talmud. Its birthplace, Babylonia, was an autonomous Jewish center for a longer period than any other land; namely from soon after 586 before the Christian era to the year 1040 after the Christian Era — 1626 years.. . . . [Rabbi] Akiba [15BC to AD132] was the author of a collection of traditional laws out of which the Mishnah actually grew. . . The language of the Mishnah is Neo-Hebrew, a natural development from Biblical Hebrew . . . there is in it a large admixture of Aramaic, Greek and also Latin terms. . ." Obviously not the vernacular on Mount Sinai.

So if we take the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire at his word, the Talmud, Oral Torah or Oral Law is of somewhat more recent composition than the Pentateuch or Torah which pre-date the Babylonian exile by about 900 years. Can Rabbi Balinsky be mistaken?


Rabbi Balinsky: Fundamental to Jewish belief is the notion that the Torah comprises two halves: the written Torah, the Five Books of Moses, and the Oral Torah, the process of interpretation and exegesis. For a Jew to study Torah is to engage both the Written Torah and the Oral Torah of interpretation. This means that Yom Kippur is not only a holiday of forgiveness, but also the holiday that celebrates the inauguration of the Oral Torah.

And this is nothing but a gigantic lie. Is this not Lucifer saying to God, "I overrule you"? Is this not the very pride by which Lucifer was cast out of heaven? The essence of the "Oral Torah" is that the rabbi can interpret the Written Torah any way he wants. Like lawyers setting legal precedents, if a rabbi has made a statement in contradiction to the clear Written Torah, the "Oral Torah" becomes valid and authoritative interpretation! God is His own Interpreter. He interprets His Word either by bringing It to pass, or by sending a vindicated prophet. The test for a prophet is that anything he says in the Name of the Lord will be in absolute agreement with the Word of every previously vindicated prophet, and that it will come to pass as stated (Numbers 12:6; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; 18:15-22). The Talmud makes the Word of Moses and the prophets of no effect to its believers since it is their antithesis (Matthew 15:1-9). So Rabbi Balinsky's assertion that the Oral Torah was delivered by Moses to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai is PURE FABRICATION. Besides, there were no "Jewish people" at Mount Sinai.

"Yom Kippur is not only a holiday of forgiveness," it is a prophetic pantomime of Israel's rejection of Messiah and soon-coming mourning when faith "finishes the transgression, makes an end of sins and reconciliation for iniquity, brings in everlasting righteousness, confirms the prophetic vision, and anoints the Most Holy" — the Son of David, King Jesus Messiah with His Bride and Queen, the elect Church.

Rabbi Balinsky: We begin Yom Kippur with Kol Nidre, the prime example of this Oral Torah. The Written Torah is explicit (Numbers 30:2); vows must be fulfiled. As noted above, the Oral Torah, with no real basis in the Written Torah, comments that others can release a person from his vow, a conclusion that emerges only from an interpretive tradition.

Note this admission, "the Oral Torah, with no real basis in the Written Torah." The rabbinate knows full well that their Oral Tradition cannot stand up to Scripture. The choice is very clear: the Bible or the "Oral Torah."

Rabbi Balinsky: The Oral Torah, on this case, radically reinterprets the Written Torah. And the prime illustration of the validity of this process of interpretation is Kol Nidre. Our foremost teacher is Moses, who boldly released G-d from his vow to destroy the people, and in doing so began the legacy of Oral Torah, courageously and brilliantly interpreting the word of G-d.

. . . to mean the EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE BIBLE ACTUALLY SAYS! Of course, this article was not meant for Christian eyes or ears. The Jewish Encyclopedia (Vol. V, p. 619 – 622) is still more open about Sanhedrin 59a, threatening death to any Jew who revealed the "Torah" laws (by which is implied the fraudulent "Oral Torah" or Talmud) to Gentiles "for such knowledge might have operated against the Jews in our opponents' courts."

Let us fully understand what we are dealing with: "The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees. Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single member of that literature"(The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. VIII., p. 474).

Should Christians accept the interpretations of the unrepentant successors of those who crucified Messiah? Why are your pulpitmasters not warning you about these wolves in sheep's clothing who feign piety at every opportunity? "Because they believed not the revelation of God's unchanging Word, but had pleasure in human reasoning against the faith," and that is the mark of the beast (II Thessalonians 2:12). The majority of ministers are as deceived as their congregations.The Jewish masses are deceived as well, for the rabbis have convinced them that the world is out to get them. Judaism is a religion of paranoia.


Rabbi Balinsky: The possibility of repentance, so central to Yom Kippur, shares a similar theme with the Oral Torah. As we saw, the Oral Torah enables us to interpret the Written Torah. What appears to be fixed is not absolute. Repentance follows in the same direction. An act which is sinful does not have to be absolutely recorded as such. Through genuine repentance, it can be transformed into a meritorious deed.

What an amazing piece of doublespeak! "What appears to be fixed is not absolute"! "Through genuine repentance, it can be transformed into a meritorious deed!" Isaiah 5:20-21, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight"! The amazing thing is how anybody can take a rabbi seriously!

Rabbi Balinsky: Both Oral Torah and repentance are acts of interpretation.

I have always "interpreted" repentance to mean genuine regret for previous sins committed and a sincere desire never to repeat those sins again! Obviously, that is not the interpretation of the Oral Torah or the Kol Nidre!

Rabbi Balinsky: No matter how much our lives appear to be rooted in one direction, repentance allows for change, a new direction, and enables us to interpret where we have been and to generate new possibilities.

The chameleon changes colors to suit the times and the circumstances.

Rabbi Balinsky: Kol Nidre is a potent prayer. What at first appears to be merely a legal formula is really a profound statement of Jewish faith. Kol Nidre teaches us that we are heirs to a dynamic tradition that allows us to engage with G-d in a bold manner.

Rabbi Balinsky: It teaches us that our Torah is alive through the Oral Torah. And it reminds us that repentance enables us to have a creative encounter with our lives, in which we can create new directions and interpretations for that which appears to be fixed.

Next time you have a "creative encounter" with a Jew, remember the Kol Nidre!

Rabbi Michael Balinsky is director of Hillel at Northwestern University and vice president of the Chicago Board of Rabbis.

The Chicago Board of Rabbis stands condemned by their approval of the teachings of this professor!

For good measure, here is Balinsky's text of the Kol Nidre repeated. Let it sink this time:


Kol Nidre: All vows, prohibitive vows, oaths, vows of dedication, konam-vows, konas-vows, and equivalent terms that we have vowed, sworn, declared, and imposed upon ourselves from this day of atonement, may it come upon us for good. Regarding them all, we regret them. Let them be released, forgiven, erased, null and void. They are not valid nor are they in force. Our vows are not vows. Our prohibitive vows are not prohibitive vows. Our oaths are not oaths.

I have regretted some of the vows I have made, but it has never occurred to me to "reinterpret" them so as to annul them. Only the Jews have the chutzpah to declare themselves sacrosanct in this manner. It is a most Satanic perversion of Scripture. Judaism is the religion of the devil based upon fraudulent authority as Jesus said — pretence built on a mountain of lies (John 6:44; Revelation 2:9; 3:9).

Samuel Roth on the Kol Nidre

Rabbi Balinsky has demonstrated for us how the Jewish mind fabricates, prevaricates and interpolates. It is brainwashing for the Jewish people and it is deception for the masses. The religion of Judaism has raised hypocrisy to the highest of fraudulent arts. It treats truth as a plaything to be used for sport on the unsuspecting masses. Samuel Roth, on the other hand is one of those rare Jews who tells it like it is, even to the point of being tactless. Roth treats the deep, dark secret that Judaism is a mountain of lies as matter-of-factly as one who has been there.

From Jews Must Live:


Certainly no other religion in the world has offered the world a spectacle as contradictory, as malicious, as full of the spirit of unreasonableness as the Jewish recital of the prayer Kol Nidre during Yom Kippur. I suggest that if we are going to start tearing down this great fortress of Jewish religious prejudice and intolerance, Kol Nidre is perhaps the best starting point.

Kol Nidre! What the sound of that word means to a Jew from the first time he hears it in the white twilight of the tall-candled synagogue on the eve of Yom Kippur, and on through the wilderness of ghetto years, only a Jew can understand! The most intimate memories of childhood, youth and manhood, twine themselves about that tune, and he hangs upon it, as upon branches of a tree, the choicest of his emotions, till to threaten sacrilege against Kol Nidre would seem to threaten life itself.


Here, Samuel Roth reproduces the prayer from the authorized prayer book of the Hebrew Publishing Company:

All vows, obligations, oaths or anathemas, pledges of all names, which we shall have vowed, sworn, devoted or bound ourselves to, from this day of atonement (whose arrival we hope for in happiness) to the next, we repent, aforehand, of them all. They shall be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, void and made of no effect; they shall not be binding nor have any power; the vows shall not be reckoned vows, the obligations shall not be reckoned obligatory, nor the oaths considered oaths.
And it shall be forgiven to the whole congregation of Israel, and to the stranger who sojourneth amongst them; for all the people act ignorantly."


Roth's explanation:

And is that, you ask, all of the Kol Nidre? That is all there is to the Kol Nidre, I must answer. In reciting it the Jew solemnly swears before his Lord God that he has only one fealty, loyalty or obligation, and that is to Him, the Lord God. No matter what business he may undertake to promote with his neighbor, be it material or moral, he wants the Lord God to understand in advance that there will be one implicit condition (a condition, however, he does not undertake to explain before entering into an argument): the execution of it must be favorable to Him, the Lord God, or it will be considered by the Jew void, of no account, utterly useless, as if it had never been mentioned, as if nothing related to it had ever been negotiated.

Is the God that you believe in so devious? To "repent" in advance thus means to deceive those who know nothing of such fore-ordained "repentance." If the Jew can get away with it, he will "repent." If the Christian knows Judaism, then the Jew can't get away with it any more.

When the meaning of Kol Nidre became known during the Dark Ages, a cry of rage broke from the throats of the goyim. "In that case," they cried, "a Jew may enter into any arrangement with us, with a light heart. Does his enterprise prosper? Then he abides by the agreement. If not, he can always denounce the whole affair by remembering that in the moment of Kol Nidre, the most sacred of all the moments in the Jew's life, he had practically, fully and without equivocation negated it."

And so it came about that the eve of Yom Kippur became, for the gentiles throughout Europe, a time for protest against Jewish knavery. Usually the gentiles living near a Jewish community would announce the coming of Yom Kippur by displaying posters everywhere, reading:

"BEWARE: THE DAY IS AT HAND WHEN THE JEW RENOUNCES AS INSINCERE ANY DEALINGS HE MAY HAVE WITH YOU DURING THE COMING YEAR. BEWARE!"

In many communities legislators considered it necessary to have a special form of oath administered to Jews—an oath intended to negate the oath of Kol Nidre. This oath was known as the Jew's Oath. There were judges who absolutely refused to take any supplementary oath from a Jew, as totally insincere and untrustworthy, and they based their objections chiefly on Kol Nidre.

The origin of this most extraordinary (as well as unwisest) of all Jewish prayers is hidden in the mists of the Dark Ages. No one knows how it came into existence in the first place. No one has any idea how it became so vital a part of the synagogue service. It is only fair to add that, in spite of the general acceptance which Kol Nidre has enjoyed since its inception, there has never been a time when there was a really strong and honest opposition to it among Jews. Of the six Gaonim of the two Babylonian Academies, for instance, five placed themselves unalterably against admitting it into the program of prayer for Yom Kippur.


The question must be asked; "Were these Gaonim opposed to the spirit of the prayer or only concerned about the reaction to the prayer by the goyim should they become aware of its content?"

How did it happen, then, that despite the anger of the gentile world, which considered the prayer a gross and insulting breach of faith with it, and against the advice of the wisest and most pious among the priests of Israel, Kol Nidre was not only adopted in the Prayer Book but achieved such distinction in the Jewish mind that it can be associated in the minds of the people in holiness only with the Ten Commandments?

Amazing that DENIAL of the Ten Commandments could be held in such high regard by those who claim to be the originators of the Bible!—only if it should become necessary, of course!

The retention and magnification of Kol Nidre in the grand order of the synagogue is a characteristic bit of Jewish mob obstinacy – in this case an obstinacy entirely without justification in reason or in history . . . The accepted current version has an important alteration made in it by Rashi's son-in-law, Meier ben Samuel, who changed the original phrase "from the last Day of Atonement to this one" to "from this Day of Atonement to the next one." As if, morally, it makes any difference whether you welsh on an arrangement already made or on one you might make at a later date! [Jewish Encyclopedia, Volume VII, p. 540.]

Hence, the expression "Don't jew me!"

But the height of interpretive shrewdness is reached in the explanation of Rabbi Isaiah of Trani. "Since the Jews come to the synagogue on Yom Kippur to ask forgiveness for all their sins, it is important that they clear themselves of all vows which they might carry out during the following year."

It seems to me that Rabbi Balinsky of Chicago, having several centuries of rabbinical shrewdness to fall back upon, has masterfully outdone Rabbi Isaiah of Trani.

Kol Nidre has dug a trench for itself deep in the heart of the Jewish people. It seems as if to try to undermine it is to undermine the life of the whole people. . . We must unearth Kol Nidre and fling the foul corpse over the rim of the earth, if we are ever to get rid of Judaism.

I have the same objection to Yom Kippur (Day of Forgiveness) that I have to the Catholic institution of Confession. It breeds instability of mind and character. If a man knows that no matter how badly he behaves a whole year, no matter what crimes or iniquities he commits, a day sure to come when all his transgressions, civil and criminal alike, will be forgiven him, it is only human that he should be tempted to do rash, violent things to promote his worldly fortunes.


The Priesthood of Great Pride

The episode in the life of Christ which enraged the Pharisees more than any other was when Jesus healed a man whose friends went to all the trouble of climbing onto the rooftop of the house He was in; and then they lowered the sick man's bed, with him in it, down through a hole in the roof so as to present him to Jesus. Whereupon Jesus said: "Man, your sins are forgiven" (Luke 5:20).

How dare this Nazarene, without their consent, assume the role and authority of a priest! You see, the priesthood doesn't like it when someone outside of their fraternity demonstrates to them that they are obsolete! Worse than that, Jesus was telling them that He outranked them! And that rankled them to no end. "But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins . . . "

Like the angels who rebelled against God in heaven, the rabbis rebel against the Gospel, which teaches that those who would lead must SERVE, not DICTATE.

"You know that they who are accounted to rule over the nations exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: and whosoever of you will be chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:42-45).

Notice, He gave His life for many. Not for all.

The rabbi, as the ultimate rebel against God and His Son, cannot bear to serve anyone other than himself. And the rabbinate, which is nothing more than the devil's mutual admiration society, since it has no real power other than deception, must constantly consult the spirit of Lucifer, which always seeks to make evil good and good evil. Fair and gentle minds cannot understand the satisfaction the rabbi gets from a plot well laid and a victim snared. Like the serial killer who likes to see his victims suffer as much as possible, he must first present the victim with a ploy, such as "persecution." Sometimes, the game turns deadly. This is what Judaism did to Czarist Russia.

The difference between a dishonest person and a rabbi is that the rabbi has been practicing his art, not just for a lifetime, but, through his teachers and predecessors, for millennia. He is so good at it that even when he admits to being a liar, he makes himself sound good. The deceptive intellect wants, above all things, to be worshipped. It is more important to him to be "smarter than thou" than to be "holier than thou." By faking the latter he becomes the former to those duped; and he eventually deludes himself into thinking that this can go on forever. Those who desire to be worshipped cannot abide a higher being than themselves, such as the Lord God, whether manifest in the unchanging Word revealed by His prophets, in the virgin born flesh of Adam's kinsman Redeemer, who is the beginning of God manifesting Himself in the flesh of His glorified Family, or as the unseen Holy Spirit. Thus, they cannot serve; they can only dictate. This was the sin of Lucifer.

"Pride cometh before a fall." Does not Scripture teach that Satan will be burned in the Lake of Fire? Did not Jesus question the Pharisees: "How can you escape the damnation of hell?" Hence, their rebellion is complete; it cannot go unpunished. You may try to convert evil; but evil cannot be converted. That is why it IS evil. And evil's favorite sport is pretending to be good and watching its victims suffer.

Conclusion

The rabbis of Judaism have been posturing as both the people to whom the Law was delivered and also as the Keepers of the Law. Both propositions are false. Were it they to whom the Law was delivered, its true watchmen and Guardians, they would keep it. What you have heard from these two Jewish witnesses is a detailed examination of the art of hypocrisy. In this art, the Talmudic rabbis have no equal. Two thousand years of this earthly tradition have made them the masters of the Big Lie as Goebbels said. It has fooled the entire world, except for the elect of Adam's race—Jew or Gentile.

Given all of the foregoing evidence, one can only conclude that the Jewish Day of Atonement is the blackest day of the calendar. It is the day on which the Truth dies and honesty is mocked by Jews the world over. If ever there was a prayer in honor of father of lies, it is the Kol Nidre. nl443.htm
