No wonder, then, that Jesus both by precept and by example said, “Watch and pray” (Matt. 26:41), uniting the conditions necessary to our development. Some pray and neglect to watch; others watch and neglect to pray. Both these errors are serious; and it is not possible for us to decide which is the more serious neglect, since either would work disastrous loss of the great “prize” for which we are running.

It required the two reigns of David and Solomon to represent the great work of the Lord’s Anointed. David’s reign represented the work of the church in the flesh, while Solomon’s reign represented the work of the church glorified and at rest from all her enemies.
Eze 37:24-26 And my servant David shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, they, and their children, and their children’s children, for ever: and David my servant shall be their prince for ever.
The United States and Israel began to see rapid deterioration in their relationship as soon as President Barack Obama took the reigns in January 2009. President Obama began his term of office by reaching out to Muslims in a speech in Cairo, and since then has repeatedly given his ear to Israel’s enemies while publicly berating Israel at every opportunity.
For Israel supposedly being one of America’s closest ally, Mr. Obama has yet to visit Jerusalem as president. Politically such a disregard is considered a snub.
Job’s justification of the purity of his integrity was meaningless to the comforters because they felt the proof was in the pudding. They regarded his trauma, bitter experience, unsightliness, and seeming complaining as evidences of his guilt. Concluding that indeed he must have done something wrong to merit such afflictions, they felt that his utterances were added proof of his guilt. In their minds, he deserved his sufferings, and they wanted to say, “Job, wake up to your situation.” How exasperating for Job! He could have done much better without their “comforting” and wished they would leave.
Not only was it necessary for Jews to understand that Pharaoh was not God, it was also important for Egyptians. Only when the Egyptian army was engulfed and destroyed was the meaning of The Exodus revealed. But that was only the beginning of freedom.
According to the indictment, Hutaree members view local, state and federal law enforcement authorities as the enemy and have been preparing to engage them in armed conflict.
The indictment alleges the Hutaree planned to kill an unidentified law enforcement officer in Michigan and then attack officers and others who would gather for that officer’s funeral.
“We’re representing the truth, in front of everyone, and saying out loud what every Jew believes,” Marzel said. “That the Third Temple needs to be built immediately on the Temple Mount and that the mosque should not be there.”
Marzel brushed off the furor the ads might elicit from the capital’s Muslims, saying, “It upsets them that we’re alive, and that we’re living here.
The Egyptian government has announced that it will not allow Jews to pray in Cairo’s newly-restored Maimonides Synagogue, in retaliation for Israel’s security response to Arab rioting on the Temple Mount.
Nor will he allow the Egyptian Jewish community to administer the site – a direct response, he said, to the “provocative practices carried out by the Jews in their celebration which was held in the temple.” – both practices which he said were offensive to a billion Muslims.
“Israel’s policy of retaliation is forceful and decisive,” the PM said during the weekly government meeting in Jerusalem, asserting that Israel would “retaliate decisively against any attack on our citizens and soldiers.”
“The United States needs to understand that the atmosphere it created in the Middle East, that Washington is now less friendly to Israel, isn’t making the Palestinians more willing to compromise, it further adds to their rejection of the peace process.”
