Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days [Adam's world]; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters [cities] of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

 

Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

 

Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. {made up of many members]

The World Council of Churches, the main global body uniting non-Catholic Christians, told members on Tuesday to sell off investments in Israel, in a bid to stop church money being used to assist in the 'illegal occupation' of Palestinian land.

The Council's Central Committee, meeting in Geneva, praised the United States Presbyterian Church for its decision to selectively divest in Israel, despite the fact that the denomination's ongoing deliberations on the issue have provoked strong opposition throughout the grassroots church membership.

"This action is commendable in both method and manner, uses criteria rooted in faith and calls members to do the 'things that make for peace'," the committee declared in a press release, quoting an innocent-sounding phrase from Luke chapter 19, which in fact appears in the context of Jesus' prophecy of the brutal sacking of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70.

Defending itself upfront from charges of anti-Semitism, the WCC highlighted previous statements recognizing Israel's "serious and legitimate security concerns."

Nevertheless, among the "illegal" activities highlighted for censure is the role of multinational corporations in the construction of "a dividing wall" the existence of which seems to suggest that Israel believes that "a viable peace for both peoples is not a possibility."

Why is the Council of this world's 'church' fighting to build that - which the Lord they say they represent - said He will destroy?

In October the European Union's Middle East envoy, Marc Otte, conceded that the controversial 700 km long security fence did in fact make for peace, despite its condemnation by the World Court earlier in the year on the grounds on international law.

"The barrier has drastically sunk the number of attacks," the Belgian diplomat told the Financial Times Deutschland, making him the first high-level EU diplomat to publicly say that the fence has fulfilled its aim.

Isa 30:9 This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

Isa 30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

Isa 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this Word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

Isa 30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.

Isa 28:19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

Mar 13:14 When ye shall see the abomination of desolation {without life - "He that hath the Son hath life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" - Palestine denies the Son] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, [The name Israel is His heritage]

Mat 24:21 Then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Palestine denies the Son of God - The Holy One of Israel

1Cr 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

Jam 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

Jam 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Why are those 'churches' calling themselves 'Christians' ??? It is blasphemy to rest ourselves upon the Holy Reputation of the Lord - and to use that power - to fight for that which the Lord already condemned.

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
