Incoming e-mail, Re: Maariv Newspaper announces Israel will be first to implement mandatory RFID chips in citizens hands

I hope you're sitting down for this piece of news.

Biblically Breakings News From Israel brough to you by Aviad Cohen
11.14.08 - Maariv Newspaper (Tel Aviv)

Dear friends, it's Aviad Cohen reporting from Israel. Here is the scenario: I am standing in the living room of a Jewish friend's home in Israel this evening. He is sitting down reading Maariv newspaper's "Sof Shavua (End of The Week). (Maariv is an Hebrew newspaper in Tel Aviv.) He starts to translate some Hebrew to me about how an article from the 11.14.08 newspaper is stating how the Israeli government is passing (or has passed) a law where all citizens will be required to have RFID chips implanted into their hand. Keep in mind this lengthy article is "six" pages long (666 get a hint). I started to explain to him about how the Bible prophesies about this. He also mentions that in the article it states that ISRAEL WILL BE THE FIRST COUNTRY TO IMPLEMENT THE RFID CHIP AS MANDATORY FOR ALL CITIZENS. I was not shocked when I received this news since the Bible prophesies this happening, as mentioned in the Brit Chadasha (New Testament) in the book of Revelation. I just did not think that it would happen this fast and first out of all places, in Israel?. Keeping "tabs on Jews" is a red flag of something bad that is coming up ahead. For Israel to claim that they will be the first to establish the mark of the beast (mark on the hand) is a shock. How would Holocaust victims with tattoos on their arms from concentration camps react to the RFID chip implant? This is disgusting and even more disgusting is how many Jews will blindly/ignorantly take it in the name of "countering terrorism." Who are the real terrorists? That remains to be the "big brother" question. I think the only ones who need to have tabs kept on them are the psychos who are coming up with "chipping people." They are the real terrorists.

For most Israeli citizens hearing this news does not make that much sense since they do not read the Brit Chadasha and do not understand that what is going on today has been prophesied about in the Bible, but to a Yehudi Meshichi (Messianic Jew) like me, it makes total sense since I am "Scripturally Informed." Here is an excerpt from the Brit Chadasha:

Revelation 14:9-11
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

Now in Hebrew... (I can't print the Hebrew)

Revelation 13:16-18 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[f] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Now in Hebrew...

Will I take this "mark" on my forehead or hand? No. Might it be that not conforming to this strange mandatory forceful request by the Israeli government will cost me my life? Possibly. How will the Orthodox Jews, secular or Messianic Jews in Israel respond to such a strange request which forcibly violates their privacy to the extreme level? Will they take it? Will even the Messianic Jews in Israel take it? As I get more of this article somehow translated, I will do my best to make it available to the public online. If you have a copy of this online in English, please link me to it. You can contact me here.

I would like to thank everyone who has written in with nice comments. At this point I am not able to respond to most emails since I am super busy and doing what I can to get more situated here in Israel, but I do read your comments and thank you for taking the time to write me back. Brief comments sent in are preferred. Please understand if I do not comment back. I have limited internet access at this point. Having to re-establish my life here is a challenge but with Adonai, all things are possible. Funds are also limited and I am working on finding a job here and at the same time I am spending money on food, transportation and even clothes, since I did not prepare for Israel to have cold weather. Thank you to those of you who have decided to financially help out the best way that you can. It's difficult to find an apartment, redo my resume, re-learn the language, find a job and handle all necessary re-entry in the country paperwork including health insurance, etc - all at the same time. If you would like to send in support, you can do so here. It is definitely helpful.

If not for Yeshua the Messiah I would still be a wandering and uninformed Jew. By Yeshua's stripes I am healed and so are you! Even during such uncertain and chaotic times like the ones we are living in right now, I know that if I want to know what is going on and the promises that Adonai has given to me, I just have to read His Word. It's also nice to know that I have "eternal life insurance" thanks to Yeshua Messiah. Do you? If not, you should get some. Read the Bible and you will find out how. Hint: Salvation is free. It's now just more of the case of if you want it or not.

I find it to be rather interesting that there are many Israeli Jews in Israel who are not followers of Yeshua Messiah, yet they love to listen to my music and are intrigued when I share the Scriptures with them. If only I got settled enough and in a better financial situation to be able to make another album in Israel. Making an album is expensive. People have asked me before to sing in Hebrew. Since I am now living in Israel, perhaps I will. That would be interesting. At this point I am not able to do this for many reasons (time, finances and circumstances) but maybe one day I will when I get more of my ducks in order. I hope to land a full time job working for a company here and hopefully during some free time (if I have any) I will eventually be in more of a position to record more music and distribute it online for free.

In closing, regarding this new late breaking news about big brother conducting a "severe digital census" in Israel, I see that on the article's first two pages, the top half of two of the pages have a large spread of a pixelated eye looking at the reader in black and white. Never in my entire life have I ever lived during a time of such turmoil and chaos. Adonai is making it clear to people that His Word is TRUTH and to heed to His commandments. The world as we know it is changing and this "change" is not good. Would I still tell Jews to return to Israel? Absolutely. Irregardless of what happens here, at least I know I am in the land where Adonai wants all Jews to be.

In all honesty I prefer that this article was not real, but unfortunately it is. I am staring at it sitting on the chair next to me. I looked at the cover of the newspaper and it has an illustration of a man in the dark but standing in a yellow spot light, being chased by a giant green robotic hand with red sensors on it's finger tips. On the top left it mentions something about the book "1984" and below it says in Hebrew "Ha Ach HaGadol" which translated into English means "The Big Brother."

Here is some information on the RFID chip:

"Tangent Break" :)

I spoke to the son of a father who is in charge of a leading Messianic Jewish ministry in Israel and told him that RFID chips can be found in passports. He kinda laughed at me and thought I was being paranoid when I mentioned this. What was once considered conspiracy is now revealing itself as hard reality. Some people are seriously lacking discernment. It has been rather interesting for me to see more Orthodox and Secular Jews more in tune with what is going on today than some Messianic Jews who were raised up as Messianic Jews or in the Messianic Movement and "live in a bubble." It has been interesting though to find Messianic Jews in Israel, the USA and abroad who are not "living in a bubble" and who get it. Unfortuantely, many don't and I have met people who have chosen to be "spoiled by their salvation" and sit on their butts and just claim to be saved and don't witness to non-believers (especially to non-believing Jews).

Living in a Messianic Shtetl is not always the best idea. It's impossible to witness to Jews who do not know Yeshua when you huddle up in a corner with other Jewish believers and try to "act out your Jewishness" attempting to justify your faith in a Messiah who most Jews think is a false prophet. My name is Aviad Cohen, I am a Jew and I don't have to prove my "Jewishness" to anyone nor to myself. If not for Yeshua Messiah, I would not care to be a Jew, would not care to read the Tanakh or even the Brit Chadasha, would not keep Adonai's commandments, would have changed my Jewish name to some goyisha name, would still be eating porn n shrimp and who knows what else, would not be keeping Shabbat or the Biblical feasts, would be dating a bunch of girls..., would be involved in crazy New Age occultism and other cults, but because of Yeshua Messiah, He's made me a real Torah keeping Jew and I don't do that other messed up stuff anymore. We are called to go out and share the Good News and make disciples, not "be under the authority of severely overprotective and in everyone's business kind of people" keeping away from non-believers and remaining in a Messianic Shtetl. How will anyone know about Yeshua if you stick to hiding in a Messianic Shtetl? I prefer to be around non-believing Jews. I get to share the Truth with them and boy are they listening. Adonai uses me to inspire them to open up the Tanakh and start to read it. Once they gain that foundation, they will be interested in opening up the Brit Chadasha. I did. Please note that I am not saying that we are to not have fellowship with believers, but just make sure not to get "sucked into the bubble." If you do, you won't be any different than the Haredi Jews. Be Set-Apart. Part of that involves "going out" and sharing the Truth, not just doing some Davidic Dancing each "Saturday" in a Messianic Congregation in the "USA" while your non-beleiving Jewish neighbors are currently going to hell because sharing the Good News with them is inconvenient and you are afraid of rejection or if they might beat you because you tell them the Truth. If Shaul (Paul) huddled up in a Messianic Shtetl all day long (the same goes with the other emmisaries of Yeshua Messiah) nobody would have ever known the Truth. Break out of the Messianic Shtetl and start sharing the Truth, unless you prefer that your neighbor's go to hell. Part of Adonai's commandments is to love your neighbor. I can't see loving my neighbor as being someone who refuses to share the Good News with them because it will bring upon persecution.

Now back to our main topic....

Was I the first person to report this news about Israel getting ready to be the first nation to be "chipped"? I hope not, because this is MASSIVE news. Can somebody find the English translation of this article in Maariv online? If I was not in Israel, how would I have ever known this and then shared it with you?

What will happen with the Israelis who refuse to take the mark of the beast (RFID chip in their hand)? Will they be fined, jailed, killed? What if I did not enter the living room and my friend did not show me this article? I would never have known about this one world government technology tsunami which is about to violate the rights of every Israeli citizen living in Israel. If you hear any more news about this specifically pertaining to Israel, please let me know.

My reply to a post on Five Doves site, Re: Kerry VonDross (15 Nov 2008) "To Mic / 2 Thessalonians 2" br />br /> DAY OF CHRIST OR DAY OF THE LORD IN 1 THESS. 2:2? br />br /> > > Newer translations skew Rabbi Paul’s words by changing the Original text from, “the day of Christ is at hand,” to, “the day of the Lord has already come.” Before furthering any doctrine stemming from a passage, the underlining interpretation of the passage must be firm. Forgoing the “newer translations,” the Bible firmly states, “…as that the day of Christ is at hand.” br />br /> I use the KJV for my main study Bible. However, there is good reason to go by other translations in this particular case. Why? Three major manuscripts have been found since the KJV was translated that are older than those used to translate the KJV. All three, Sinaitic Codex (found by Tischendorf), Alexandrine Codex. and Vatican Codex have the day of the Lord instead of the day of Christ. br />br /> In the Tischendorf New Testament, a footnote of 2 Thess. 2:2 shows that all three of these older major manuscripts have day of the Lord. br />br /> Here is 2Th 2:1-3 in the Geneva Bible: "Nowe we beseech you, brethren (i.e., believers), by the comming of our Lord Iesus Christ, and by OUR ASSEMBLING VNTO HIM (i.e., at the Pre-Trib Rapture), That ye be not suddenly mooued from your minde, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by worde, nor by letter, as it were from vs, as though the day of Christ (i.e., day of the Lord) were at hand. Let no man deceiue you by any meanes: for that day (Day of the Lord) shall not come, except there come a DEPARTING (i.e., the Pre-Trib Rapture) first, and that that man of sinne (i.e., the False Prophet, the 2nd son of perdition, Judas Iscariot was the 1st) be disclosed, euen the sonne of perdition". br />br /> The Day of Christ makes no sense. The Pre-Trib Rapture is the Day of Christ. When the Pre-Trib Rapture is at hand, the Day of Christ is at hand, so that would not trouble believers. br />br /> What would trouble believers is to think that they are to be caught up in the Pre-Wrath Rapture as the Day of the Lord/Day of God's Wrath begins. br />br /> The first Rapture is at least 2300 days (Dan. 8:13,14) BEFORE the Day of the Lord begins. The second Rapture is just AFTER the Day of the Lord has begun. br />br /> Rev 6:15-17 says, "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne (i.e., they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky), and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" Rev. 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." br />br /> Those caught up at the first trump of God are the wise virgins, the Bride of Christ, those accounted worthy to escape the Tribulation (Luke 21:36). Those caught up at the "last trump" (I Cor. 15:51,52) are the foolish virgins that were not accounted worthy to escape the Tribulation. br />br /> Luke 12:46 (KJV) says, "The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder (lit., cut him off), and will appoint him his portion (the Tribulation) with the unbelievers." Mt. 24:51 adds, "And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites (pretenders): there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." br />br /> Mt. 22:11-14 says, "And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness (i.e., outside the Rapture door); there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen." br />br /> We must be called, and chosen, and faithful. The setting of Rev. 17 is the time of the Pre-Trib Rapture, when the 10 kings have no kingdom as yet. Verse 14 says, "they that ARE WITH HIM are called, and chosen, and faithful." br />br /> The difference between these 2 groups is whether or not they let Jesus wash their feet. John 13:8,10 says, "Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me....Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit". br />br /> They should use I John 1:9 so God could cleanse them of all unrighteousness. The KJV says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Our old sins are wiped off the slate when we accept Jesus as our own personal Saviour. I John 1:9 applies to sins committed after we accept Christ. br />br /> 2 Peter 1:9 says, "But he that lacketh these things is blind (i.e., like the Laodiceans), and cannot see afar off (i.e., heaven), and hath forgotten that he was purged from his OLD SINS." By the Day of God's Wrath, the foolish virgins will have figured out how to be filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: Cheshvan 17 Question

I just wondered where you got the number 48 from.

Is there something that says that a generation is 48 years? Thanks

My reply

Yes. Mt. 1:17. 2035 - 5 (Jesus was born in BC 5) divided by 42 = 48.33 years for a generation.

Incoming e-mail, Re: Cheshvan 17 Question

Thanks for replying to me Marilyn.

Just one other question if you do not mind.

Where does the year 2035 bc come from?

Are you saying that Abraham was born in that year?

If so, how can we know for sure that this is the date?

Searching around the Internet gives me all sorts of different dates for his birth.

I do appreciate your helping me understand all of this, and I hope that you are correct about Cheshvan 17. It certainly makes sense. Sincerely

My reply

> > Where does the year 2035 bc come from?

2008 AH = 2035 BC Abram born

> > Are you saying that Abraham was born in that year?


> > If so, how can we know for sure that this is the date?

0 AH = 4043 BC = -283 on Jewish calendar. Adam created on last day of 0 AH. New moon was Fri, 17 min, 2 parts, after 4 PM. Since new moon was after noon, New Year Day would have been shifted to Sat., when the Lord rested the 7th day. 1 A.H. = 4043/42 B.C. Beginning of the 40-year Dispensation of Innocence. According to Jewish tradition, Adam was created on Tishri 1, but it seems to me that he was created Friday, September 18, equal to the Jewish Elul 29, the Preparation for the Feast of Trumpets. It could have been just minutes before Tishri 1 began at sunset. I think that God rested from creation Saturday, September 19, equal to the Jewish Tishri 1, the Jewish Sabbath, New Year and Feast of Trumpets. Thus with creation finished, the new "kosmos" began to operate on the Jewish New Year that began Friday evening.

(4042 AH = 2/1 BC, 4043 AH = 1 BC/1 AD, there is no zero year)
40 AH = 4004/3 BC = -243 Jewish. Adam expelled from the Garden of Eden. Beginning of the first 1000-year Day, the 2000-year Age of Gentiles, and the 1616-year Dispensation of Conscience.
130 AH = 3913 BC Seth born when Adam was 130 years old (Genesis 5:3)
235 AH = 3808 BC Enos born when Seth was 105 (Gen 5:6)
282 AH = 3762/61 BC = -1 Jewish
283 AH = 3761/60 BC = +1 Jewish, Jewish calendar began Oct 7, 3761 BC
325 AH Cainan born when Enos was 90 (Gen 5:9)
395 AH Mahalaleel born when Cainan was 70 (Gen 5:12)
460 AH Jared born when Mahalaleel was 65 (Gen 5:15)
622 AH = 3421 BC Enoch born when Jared was 162 (Gen 5:18)
DOUBLE CHECK: "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam" (Jude 14). None are left out. None can be added.
687 AH = 3356 BC Methuselah born when Enoch was 65 (Gen 5:21)
874 AH Lamech born when Methuselah was 187 (Gen 5:25)
930 AH = 3113 BC Adam died when 930 (Gen 5:5). (He would have passed on the information the Lord gave him to Lamech, who would have passed it on to Noah.)
987 AH = Enoch's Rapture when 365 years old, 669 years before the Flood
1040 AH = 3003 BC. Beginning of second 1000-year Day
1056 AH = 2987 BC Noah born when Lamech was 182 (Gen 5:28)
1558 AH Shem born (Gen 11:10). (Noah born 1056 AH. He was 600 when flood began.
Flood was in 1656 AH. Shem was 100 two yrs after Flood, so was 98 when Flood began. Therefore, he was born 1558 AH when Noah was 502)
1651 AH Lamech died at 777 (Gen 5:31), 5 yrs before the Flood
1656 AH = 2387 BC The Flood after Methuselah died at 969 (Gen 7:27), when Noah was 600 (Gen 7:6).
Beginning of the 427-year Dispensation of Human Government
DOUBLE CHECK:Methuselah lived 969 years and then the Flood came, Genesis 5:27. (687 AH + 969 = 1656 AH).
DOUBLE CHECK: Noah was 600 yrs old when the Flood came, Gen 7:6. (1056 AH + 600 = 1656 AH).
DOUBLE CHECK: Adam lived 930 yrs. Methuselah lived 969 yrs. Their lives overlapped 243 yrs. (930 + 969 = 1899 - 1656 to Flood = 243, making any changes difficult)

Post-diluvian Patriarchs

1658 AH Arphaxad born to Shem 2 years after the Flood when Shem was 100 (Gen 11:10)
DOUBLE CHECK: Shem was 100. (1558 AH + 100 = 1658)
1693 AH Salah born when Arphaxad was 35 (Gen 11:12)
1723 AH Eber born when Salah was 30 (Gen 11:14)
1757 AH = 2286 BC Peleg born when Eber was 34 (Gen 11:16)
1787 AH Reu born when Peleg was 30 (Gen 11:18)
1819 AH Serug born when Reu was 32 (Gen 11:20)
1849 AH Nahor born when Serug was 30 (Gen 11:22)
1878 AH = 2165 BC Terah born when Nahor was 29 (Gen 11:24)
1996 AH = 2047 BC Peleg died when 239 (Gen 11:18,19). "in his days was the earth divided," the continents split apart.

Hebrew Patriarchs

2008 AH = 2035 BC Abram born when Terah was 130 (Gen 11:26-32; Gen 12:4; Acts 7:4).
DOUBLE CHECK: Terah was born in 1878 AH and lived to be 205. At his death, Abram left Haran, so he died in 2083 AH when Abram was 75. AH 2083 - 75 = 2008 AH, when Abram was born when Terah was 130. AH 2008 - 130 = 1878 AH, when Terah was born. Dr. Arnold D. Ehlert, head of BIOLA library when I began my studies in earnest, in his "Syllabus of Bible Chronology," said, "Up to this point there is perfect agreement in arriving at the date 2008 A.H. as the date of Abram's birth by Anstey, Panin and Ussher.
