Petro-dollar era is officially over as Gazprom begins sales in Yuan and Rouble


See also

Aug. 27 will officially go down as a red letter day in the history of reserve currencies and dollar hegemony in how oil and gas are purchased throughout the world. In a new announcement from the Russian business media source, Kommersant, Gazprom has conducted the first sale of oil in a currency other than the dollar, and will henceforth open their purchase window to accept both Roubles and Yuan for the exchange of oil and gas products.
Beginning today with an 80000 ton oil shipment from their Arctic fields, Gazprom Neft agreed to new terms on the sale and transfer of oil through the Eastern Siberian-Pacific Ocean pipeline (ESPO) to China, and facilitating the future sale of oil and gas to both Europe and China through a currency other than the dollar. And although this is not the first real transaction for oil done outside the petro-dollar, as this occurred covertly by Iran for gold during the days of economic sanctions, it is the first official global offering by a major oil producer and will likely bring an end to the solitary system of nations being forced to buy dollars first before buying oil from producers such as OPEC and Russia.
The Russian government and several of the country’s largest exporters have widely discussed the possibility of accepting payments in rubles for oil exports. Last week, Russia began to ship oil from the Novoportovskoye field to Europe by sea. Two oil tankers are expected to arrive in Europe in September.
According to Kommersant, the payment for these shipments will be received in rubles.
Gazprom Neft will not only accept payments in rubles; subsequent transfers via the ESPO may be paid for in yuan, the newspaper reported.
According to the newspaper, the change in currency was made because of the Western sanctions against Russia.
As a protective measure, Russia decided to avoid making its payments in US dollars, which can be tracked and controlled by the United States government, Kommersant reported. - RiaNovosti
Russia and China had already long been in the works to supply one another with oil, energy, and other trade goods outside the dollar through a historic energy agreement made in late May of this year. However, the irony in all of this is that the move to enlarge this method of payment for oil to accommodate global transactions was only accelerated because of U.S. imposed sanctions, which were done in an attempt to isolate Russia, and tear down their economy.
The days of the dollar remaining the global reserve currency took a sharp hit today, and the ramifications of Russia's new move for selling oil in both Roubles and Yuan are just beginning. And since there is over $17 trillion in U.S. dollars afloat and in nations outside the U.S. kept on reserve for the primary purpose of buying oil and natural gas, as more and more countries migrate to the East and find it far more inexpensive and efficient to no longer use the dollar and SWIFT systems to supply their energy needs, then these dollars will soon come crashing back to American shores, and the inflation America has exported offshore for decades will come rudely back and suddenly hit U.S. consumers and our financial system.

Why The Earthquake Near San Francisco May Just Be The Start Of A Whole Lot Of Shaking
August 26, 2014 | Michael Snyder
Share this article

If you thought that the earthquake that struck northern California on Sunday was something, just wait until you see what is coming in the years ahead. As you will read about below, we live at a time when earthquake activity is dramatically increasing.

This is especially true of the "Ring of Fire" which runs roughly along the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. Approximately 81 percent of all big earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire, and the entire west coast of the United States falls within the danger zone. Over the past few years, we have seen huge earthquake after huge earthquake strike various areas along the Ring of Fire, but up until now the California coastline has mostly been spared. However, there are indications that this may be about to change in a big way.

Early on Sunday, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck the heart of wine country. It was the largest earthquake to hit northern California in 25 years. More than 120 people were injured, scores of buildings were damaged and Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency.

It is being projected that the economic loss from this earthquake will exceed a billion dollars. Since the initial quake, there have been more than 60 aftershocks, and residents are very much hoping that the worst is over. The following is how the damage caused by the earthquake was described by CNN...

"Everything and everyone in Napa was affected by the quake. My house, along with everybody else's, is a disaster. It looks like somebody broke in and ravaged the place, room by room." said CNN iReporter Malissa Koven, who was awakened by the shaking at about 3:20 a.m.

"Anything and everything that could fall, did," she said.

The damage in Napa is "fairly significant," said Glenn Pomeroy, the CEO of the California Earthquake Authority, who surveyed the area Sunday afternoon.

"The downtown area is hardest hit, probably because of the age of construction down there," Pomeroy said. In the residential areas, he is "seeing a lot of chimneys that've come crashing down."

That sounds pretty bad, right?

But remember, this was only a 6.1 magnitude earthquake. As Wikipedia explains, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake would be many times more powerful...

The Richter magnitude scale (also Richter scale) assigns a magnitude number to quantify the energy released by an earthquake. The Richter scale is a base-10 logarithmic scale, which defines magnitude as the logarithm of the ratio of the amplitude of the seismic waves to an arbitrary, minor amplitude.

As measured with a seismometer, an earthquake that registers 5.0 on the Richter scale has a shaking amplitude 10 times greater than that of an earthquake that registered 4.0, and thus corresponds to a release of energy 31.6 times greater than that released by the lesser earthquake.

And the earthquake that happened on Sunday would not even be worth comparing to an 8.0 or a 9.0 quake. In fact, one study concluded that a 9.0 magnitude earthquake along the Cascadia fault could potentially produce a giant tsunami that would "wash away coastal towns"…

If a 9.0 earthquake were to strike along California’s sparsely populated North Coast, it would have a catastrophic ripple effect.

A giant tsunami created by the quake would wash away coastal towns, destroy U.S. 101 and cause $70 billion in damage over a large swath of the Pacific coast. More than 100 bridges would be lost, power lines toppled and coastal towns isolated. Residents would have as few as 15 minutes notice to flee to higher ground, and as many as 10,000 would perish.

Scientists last year published this grim scenario for a massive rupture along the Cascadia fault system, which runs 700 miles off shore from Northern California to Vancouver Island.

And when we think about "the Big One" hitting California, most of the time we think about southern California. The most famous fault line in southern California is the San Andreas fault, but the truth is that many experts are far more concerned about the Puente Hills fault line. According to one seismologist, that is the fault that would be most likely to "eat L.A." and cause hundreds of billions of dollars in economic damage...

Video simulations of a rupture on the Puente Hills fault system show how energy from a quake could erupt and be funneled toward L.A.'s densest neighborhoods, with the strongest waves rippling to the west and south across the Los Angeles Basin.

According to estimates by the USGS and Southern California Earthquake Center, a massive quake on the Puente Hills fault could kill from 3,000 to 18,000 people and cause up to $250 billion in damage. Under this worst-case scenario, people in as many as three-quarters of a million households would be left homeless.

So don't get too excited about what happened on Sunday. Scientists assure us that it is only a matter of time before "the Big One" hits California.

In fact, the 6.1 magnitude earthquake that hit northern California on Sunday was not even the largest earthquake along the Ring of Fire this weekend. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook the area around Valparaiso, Chile on Saturday and a 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck Peru on Sunday.

As I mentioned above, we have moved into a time when seismic activity is steadily rising. It has gotten to the point where even the mainstream media cannot ignore it anymore. For example, just check out the following excerpt from a recent CBS News report…

The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report.

Something is happening that scientists don't understand, and that is a little scary.

As I wrote about the other day, earthquake activity seems to particularly be increasing in the United States. While the west has been relatively quiet, the number of earthquakes in the central and eastern portions of the nation has quintupled over the past 30 years…

According to the USGS, the frequency of earthquakes in the central and eastern U.S. has quintupled, to an average of 100 a year during the 2011-2013 period, up from only 20 per year during the 30-year period to 2000.

Most of these quakes were minor, but research published by the USGS earlier this year demonstrated that a relatively minor magnitude 5.0 quake caused by wastewater injection after conventional oil drilling triggered a much bigger, 5.7 magnitude quake in Prague, Okla.

“We know the hazard has increased for small and moderate size earthquakes. We don’t know as well how much the hazard has increased for large earthquakes. Our suspicion is it has but we are working on understanding this,” said William Ellsworth, a scientist with the USGS.

What in the world could be causing this to happen?

Oklahoma, which used to rarely ever have significant earthquakes, has experienced over 2,300 earthquakes so far in 2014.

That is absolutely staggering.

And of course volcanic activity has been rising all over the planet as well. In 2013, the number of eruptions around the globe set a new all-time high, and right now persistent rumbling under Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has much of Europe on alert...

For more than a week the earth has been rumbling beneath Iceland’s looming Bardarbunga volcano. The almost continuous small earthquakes led the government to activate its National Crisis Coordination Centre this week and block off access to the largely uninhabited region around the Bardarbunga caldera.

Major airlines are making contingency plans for a potential eruption that could throw dust into the atmosphere and disrupt flight paths between North America and Europe.

Some scientists are saying that if that volcano erupts, it "could trigger Britain’s coldest winter ever".

Clearly something is happening.

All over the world seismic activity is on the rise.

That means that the shaking in California (and in much of the rest of the world) may soon get a whole lot worse.



10 Characteristics Of Religious Church Systems Jesus Warns Us Against
August 26, 2014 | Joseph Mattera
Share this article

Every church and/or organization has a corporate culture with norms, rules and expectations that pressure participants to conform. Some cultures are good and some bad.

That being said, there are particular attributes that characterize false religions or become the norm during religious decline in a true faith such as Christianity.

The Old Testament prophets such as Isaiah, Micah and Amos decried religious ritual that was without true righteousness, humility and love for neighbor (Is. 1:10-17; 58; Amos 5:21-24; Mic. 6:8). The line of prophets arose starting in the 8th century B.C. primarily because Israel had a tendency to focus more on adhering to the temple ritual worship of the Levitical system than the ethical lifestyle required by the Law of Moses as found in the Ten Commandments. For this, the prophets pronounced judgment upon the nation, and God dispersed the people and, on two occasions, let enemies destroy their temple.

We have the same issue in today's church, irrespective of the denomination or expression of the body of Christ.

The following are 10 of the characteristics of false religious systems as taught by Jesus in Matthew 23:

1. There are onerous rules and regulations some call legalism (Matt. 23:1-3).

In the contemporary church, there are numerous man-made traditions and requirements that never arose from the Word, which have become an unnecessary burden upon believers. For example, in many Pentecostal churches the emphasis is on outward holiness related to attire, makeup, the cutting of hair, jewelry and other regulations. I have spoken to numerous young people who stopped attending church because these regulations made them feel weird in front of their unchurched friends. Fundamentalists in the past forbade any form of entertainment, including watching movies, listening to the radio, watching television, etc. These are legalistic efforts to bring holiness that have resulted in numerous churches losing their next generation.

2. The church leaders serve to receive prestige from men (vv. 5-7).

God makes it clear in His word that some religious leaders love the praise of men more than the praise of God (John 12:42-43). The judgment of God is against the leaders who are constantly posturing themselves within their denomination to attain the highest seats of authority and places of honor among men. Truly, some of the greatest people of God in the earth today are hidden from the public eye.

3. The leaders crave titles and moving up the ranks of hierarchical religious systems (vv. 8-11).

Today's church is replete with people who use titles to validate their ministries. I can't tell you how many people I have met with the title apostle, bishop, doctor or archbishop on their business cards who have very little influence in the church and secular world. Truly God doesn't care about an apostolic title; God looks more at apostolic function and fruit. I have found that, the more a person speaks about their academic achievements and ecclesial titles, the more insecure they are as a person and about their ministry accomplishments.

I say this as a person who has been consecrated both a bishop and apostle and who flows in circles with leaders who use these titles. There is nothing wrong with these titles (both are biblical) as long as we don't flaunt them, crave them and depend upon them for validation and/or to hide that we do not have real apostolic function and fruit. Many of the greatest leaders in the church world do not insist upon people referring to them with a title.

4. The leaders have an entitlement mentality (vv. 11-12).

I believe in the biblical principle of serving the people of God as a prerequisite to being qualified to function in the same ministry as they do. For example, Joshua was called the servant of Moses; Elisha served Elijah; David served Samuel and Saul, and the 12 apostles served Jesus.

That being said, there has also been abuse of this principle since many people desire to become leaders partially because it enables them to be waited upon. I believe younger ministers should serve older, more mature ministers out of honor and proper protocol, but at the same time older ministers should not demand it or become abusive if they do not receive it. We do not receive titles in the kingdom so we can be waited upon but so that we can have greater opportunity to serve in the church.

The more mature a Christ follower is, the more they will celebrate service as the highest form of ministry and leadership. God resists those leaders who emotionally abuse and/or lord it over those under their care (1 Pet. 5:3).

5. The leaders become a stumbling block to others seeking the kingdom (vv. 13-15).

It has been evident the past 30 years in both the evangelical and Roman Catholic churches that leaders can become huge stumbling blocks instead of assets to the kingdom. Whether it is lavish lifestyles, sexual misconduct, abuse of power, or other forms of narcissism, many believers have been turned off from Christianity by those who are supposed to represent it. Truly those who handle the Word of God will receive the most scrutiny at the judgment seat of Christ (James 3:1).

6. The leaders value and love money and wealth more than anything else (vv. 16-17).

While I do not believe church leaders should live in poverty, nor do I believe they should receive salaries from their churches that are greatly disproportionate to the average income of their congregation and/or community. The religious leaders Jesus denounced seemed to value gold more than the glory and honor of God. Leaders should never serve primarily for money but for the love of God and His people (1 Pet. 5:2).

7. The weightier matters of the Word are neglected (vv. 23-24).

Although I believe and practice the principles of tithing, fasting, church attendance and the like, they should never be an excuse for me to think I have fulfilled all of my Christian duties. Jesus says here that we ought to continue to tithe but also include in our lifestyle the practice of treating others with justice, mercy and faithfulness.

For example, if we tithe but treat our spouse poorly, neglect the poor in our midst, or mistreat others, our tithe will not do us any good. Then we are just like the Pharisee Jesus describes in Luke 18:10-14.

8. Ritual is valued more than inner transformation (vv. 25-28).

In the church we all have our traditions and rituals; whether it is the high-church liturgies of the Roman Catholic, Orthodox or Anglican churches, and/or the more informal gatherings of the Pentecostals and evangelicals. The tendency for human beings is to fall into a routine and equate our routine with true worship. Jesus told the Samaritan woman that she worshipped what she did not know (John 4), which means that people can worship in ignorance and/or without a true experience with God.

Whether it is the sacraments of denominational churches or the shouting, shaking and tongue talking of the Pentecostals, human nature has a tendency to fall into habit patterns of outward worship bereft of the life-changing dynamic of encountering the living God. We do not have to do away with these rituals, sacraments and traditions but should integrate them with true heartfelt worship and passion for our Lord.

9. They honor the departed saints without living like them in the present (vv. 29-32).

I have found that it is much easier to study about revival than to actually work hard for it. It is much easier to study church history than it is to make history. Every denomination and expression of the church has its Christian heroes of the past, but very few denominations, churches and adherents attempt to emulate the life, passion and sacrifice of the saints of old (for example: Ignatius, Tertullian, Cyprian, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Francis, Whitefield, Wesley, Edwards, Finney, Spurgeon, Moody, Hudson Taylor, John G. Lake, Wigglesworth, Maria Woodworth-Etter, Francis Schaeffer and more).

Jesus wants us to honor the prophets of old by living like them, not merely by building and revering their tombs.

10. They reject the prophets and wise men who confront their false systems (vv. 33-37).

Those who are captivated by a religious system will never listen to those speaking for God who are not of their denomination and/or do not have acceptable academic credentials. Sound familiar? The Pharisees and Sadducees rejected Jesus (John 7:14-18) and Peter (Acts 4:13) for the same reason. It is not an accident that in Luke 3:1-2 it shows that the Word of God came to John in the wilderness and not to an already established institutional leader. Thus, God bypassed the litany of prominent political and religious leaders and their systems (3:1) because they were so corrupt.

When a leader is captivated by their religious system or dead institution they become blind to the pure Word of the Lord. God has to bypass them and speak prophetically through those outside the dead institution. Those who are humble and have ears to hear (as Nicodemus in John 3) will recognize and receive the people God sends to them, irrespective of their institutional affiliation.

Truly, God cannot be contained in a temple, an institution, a denomination or any one religious system. He is Lord of all and will seek after those who worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24).

May God help us to avoid these 10 judgments!

Gaza “Corpses” Caught…Moving? (VIDEO) 

“The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a snare of death.” (Proverbs 21:6)"Corpses" of slain Gazans by a supposed IDF strike are clearly seen moving when those pretending to be dead think the cameras aren't looking. (Photo: YouTube Screenshot)
While the latest conflict between Hamas and Israel is filled with violence, a second war is being waged by Hamas right under your nose. This war is being broadcasted all across the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Hamas is waging a major propaganda war against the Jewish state, having no reservations about staging massacres that they then blame on Israel, inflating their death toll numbers, and calling on the world for peace when the terror groups own leaders vow publicly that they will never make peace with the “Zionist enemy.”
In what can only be described as an oops moment, corpses in Gaza, who had supposedly been killed in an IAF airstrike, are caught on camera moving. Those under the burial shrouds are clearly seen moving when they think that the cameras are not trained on them. It seems that dead people were not invited to the funeral.
It seems that Hamas will stoop to some very low points to garner international sympathy.

Thursday, 21 August 2014



Seven hours before the five-day cease-fire was scheduled to expire at midnight on Monday, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) dropped a bombshell. In a briefing to journalists, a senior official in the organization revealed a massive Hamas terror network had been uncovered in Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem, which planned to carry out terror attacks in Israel, start a third intifada and build the infrastructure for a military overthrow of the Palestinian Authority, like that which Hamas carried out in Gaza more than seven years ago. 

Altogether, 93 Hamas members have been arrested since May for involvement in this network. As a result of the arrests and interrogations, the security services have seized $171,000, 24 rifles, six pistols, seven rocket launchers, and a large quantity of ammunition. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he was following reports of a Hamas plot to topple the PA government with great concern, and that the information posed a serious threat to the future of the Palestinian unity government. It has now become clear that chances of reaching a long-term understanding between Israel and Hamas through the Palestinian Authority are low. 

The bitter truth is that the government of PM Binyamin Netanyahu, which until now was dismissive of PA President Mahmoud Abbas and just went through nine months of fruitless negotiations, has recently expressed interest in putting him in power in Gaza. Now the government doesn't believe Abbas has the ability to rule even in Judea & Samaria. This government's belief is that Hamas, either through the ballot box or by way of the gun, will eventually take over Judea & Samaria. Either way, the Israeli government does not want a peace agreement or other understanding that it will obligate it to evacuate thriving communities and relocate residents. (Ynet News/Ha’aretz)<

Londonistan: ‘The dawn of a new era has begun’: ISIS 

supporters hand out leaflets in London’s Oxford Street 

encouraging people to move to newly proclaimed Islamic State!

isis london

How do those brave Brits handle this? By banning Robert Spencer and me from speaking in the UK, thereby further disarming the British people in what is the gravest threat to their freedom and their country since Hitler.
Further proof that the goal of these jihadists is … the world.
Cheerio, pip-pip, and all that sort of rot, old thing …

‘The dawn of a new era has begun’: ISIS supporters hand out leaflets in London’s Oxford Street encouraging people to move to newly proclaimed Islamic State
Central London shoppers were encouraged to ‘resettle’ in Syria and Iraq
Scotland Yard is investigating whether men have breached terror laws
By Martin Robinson For Mailonline, August 13, 21014
ISIS supporters have been handing out leaflets to Oxford Street shoppers encouraging them to leave Britain for its new Islamic state.
The radicals stood in front of posters declaring ‘the dawn of a new era has begun’ in reference to the caliphate and their literature praised the ‘sacrifices’ made in the Middle East.
Scotland Yard has said today it is investigating whether the men were breaking terror laws.

One Muslim woman who confronted the men, believed to be from Luton and linked to hate preachers Anjem Choudary and Omar Bakri, said she was racially abused.
Asmaa Al-kufaishi, tweeted: ‘This group are promoting ISIS on Oxford Street. Racially abused us when we spoke out. They don’t know Islam.
‘Promoting death of innocent people, telling me to die because of my faith and race and insulting me is not Islamic behaviour.’
Pictures of the men and their leaflets have spread across social media.
You’re not too young to die: British jihadists in bid to recruit boys as young as 15 on social media sites
‘We are humans like you… Why shouldn’t we see Jumanji?’: Bizarre Twitter outburst by ISIS fighters who reveal their love of Robin Williams’ blockbuster hit
The literature describes the ‘glad tidings’ that ‘Muslims with the help of Allah have announced the re-establishment of the Khilafah (sic) and appointed an imam as a Khaleef (sic).’
It also sets out seven rules for supporters, including to ‘obey’ the leaders of ISIS, Sharia law, ‘migrate’ from the UK to the caliphate and ‘expose lies’ about the extremist group.
Today, ISIS, which now styles itself simply Islamic State (IS), has become a powerful military force that now has control of an area larger than Great Britain.
Its extremists – which include hundreds of Britain – have carried out such acts of such extreme brutality that Al Qaeda has severed all links with them.
The leafleting yesterday has led to calls for police action.
A Met spokesman said: ‘The MPS has been made aware, via social media, of leaflets which reports state were being distributed in the Oxford Street area. We are assessing the content of the leaflets to establish whether any criminal offences have been committed’.
Ghaffar Hussain, managing director of the anti-extremism foundation Quilliam, said it is a ‘clear breach of the law’.
‘This is a very disturbing development but one that should not come as a surprise since we are aware that around 500 British nationals have joined up with ISIS already.
‘We need to have a zero tolerance policy towards ISIS supporters and recruiters in the UK.

Kaduri Story Brings Jews to Jesus Christ!

Dr. David R. ReaganBy Dr. David R. Reagan
Founder & Director, Lamb & Lion Ministries

Have you heard the amazing story about the world renowned Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri who left a sealed message to be opened a year after his death? He said the Messiah had appeared to him and that the message would contain the Messiah's identity. And, when the message was opened in 2007, it shocked the entire Orthodox Jewish world, so much so in fact that they have tried to keep it quiet ever since.

Pastor Carl Gallups of Carl Gallups Ministries, author of one of the best apologetics books called The Magic Man in the Sky, reveals just what the Rabbi's message said and how it has shocked the Orthodox Jewish world in his latest book The Rabbi who Found MessiahThe Kaduri story has also ignited a firestorm of controversy in the Christian community, so much so in fact that we have invited Carl back a second time on Christ in Prophecyto discuss the impact this story has made.

[Note: Lamb & Lion Ministries is simply reporting on the story of Rabbi Kaduri. We are neither endorsing Kabbalah nor substantiating Kaduri's claim of having met the Messiah.]
Carl Gallups
The Jewish Response

Nathan Jones: Carl, I think the key to understanding this topic about the Rabbi who found Messiah is for us to look at how the Jewish people reacted to Kaduri's message. Tell us, how have the Jews reacted? Are they embracing the message, or are they hating it? Are you getting hate mail because of your exposing this story?

Carl Gallups: Many of the Orthodox Jews of course are trying to shun Kaduri's message. Remember the Jewish media even shut it down.

Yitzhak Kaduri was the Billy Graham of Jews, if you will. He was the leading voice for Rabbinical Orthodox Judaism. Then his note was opened and posted on his website for the whole world to see, which I think was brilliant by the way. What if Kaduri had just taught that Jesus is the Messiah secretly, and then got up and by mouth proclaimed, "Jesus is Messiah"? He would have been shut down instantly, and there would have been no evidence and we'd never hear of it again. But, Kaduri chose to present the revelation in a way where the whole world could see. Now it's in a book, a movie, the whole world can see it, so there's nothing the Orthodox Jews can do about it.

Believe me, Orthodox Jews are not happy about Kaduri's revelation. I've gotten plenty of hate mail over this.

Dr. Reagan: I would think so. That would be like Billy Graham saying Mohammed is the Messiah.

Carl Gallups: Yes. It's easy to imagine then why Christians would not be too happy about that. But, we of course have other proof, because we know about the death, burial, crucifixion and through prophecy that Jesus is Messiah.

Evangelizing the Jews

Carl Gallups: Since my book and movie on Kaduri's note have been released in Israel, carts and cases of the books and movies are being given away in the streets of Haifa, Tel Aviv, and in the Old City of Jerusalem, even at the Wailing Wall.

Nathan Jones: Wow, that's awesome!

Carl Gallups: What's happening in Israel is miraculous and astounding! By the way, the movie that was made from the book is being shown in churches all over America, too.

Also, we found out through an operative in Israel that ten ofKaduri's students are now on record stating they are born again Christians, believers in Jesus Christ as Lord, because of Kaduri's teaching in his yeshiva. Yeshiva is the Hebrew word for a seminary. Now that my movie has been shown to them, Kaduri's students are overjoyed because they now feel vindicated.

Shortly after the Kaduri note was put online, a gentleman by the name of Zev Porat came forward. Zev was born and raised in Israel. His father and both his grandfathers were rabbis. One of his grandfathers was a Holocaust survivor, and one even knew Kaduri personally. So, you can guess what Zev was getting ready to be — a rabbi.

Carl Gallups: Here's Zev's testimony. Years ago he was surfing a Christian website, similar to Lamb &amp Lion's website, and he was reading the site's claims about Jesus and the Old Testament. He then started comparing what these Christians said with his own Jewish beliefs. To make a long story short, Zev became a born again believer in Jesus Christ.

Through the years Zev has built a solid foundation in the Word and become a great evangelist to the Jews. The desire of his heart is to take the gospel to his Jewish brothers. He has been rejected by his family and the Orthodox community due to his faith in Jesus Christ, but he and his wife, Lynn, continue to take the Gospel into the streets.

Zev told me that he knew about the Kaduri story and what had happened. The media had shut it down and the rabbis were not talking about it. If anyone dared mention anything about Kaduri's note, the rabbis would say, "That's a lie! That's a lie!" But, Zev knew it wasn't a lie, and so he and his wife got down on their knees and started praying that somehow they would get the materials to prove it. Literally while they are praying, they heard a knock at the door. Standing there was a man from the United States. He had brought them all my books and movies about Kaduri. The man said, "God says you need this stuff." Zev was astonished! At that time I hadn't met Zev yet, but I later talked about him in my book and even include videos of him in the movie.

Nathan Jones: Zev also has a website people can visit, right?

Carl Gallups: Yes, it's That guy is amazing, so check his website out.

So, Zev gets the materials, and then tries to make contact with me. He starts calling me every day and writing to me and saying, "Carl, you're not going to believe this. There's a Kaduri revival in Israel."

Zev told me, "After I got the materials, I took the book with me on a train and started reading it aloud. Before the hour-long trip was over, literally half the train was sitting at my feet."

Dr. Reagan: The story's like a magnet. It draws people in.

Carl Gallups: Exactly! It would be like if you had a brand new book by Billy Graham with his picture on the front. Anywhere you went people would say, "That's Billy Graham. Is that a new book?" Same thing with this book, except there had been no books written about Kaduri before, so when these passengers saw it, they were freaking out. They gathered around Zev. He said he opened my book and showed them the picture of the note that said when decoded, "Jesus is Messiah." They all said, "We didn't know this! How come we didn't hear about this?"
Kaduri's Note
We even have an elderly Orthodox Jew on video, who after Zev had gone through the Old Testament and the New Testament and had shown them the rabbi's note, looks at Zev and says, "If this is true, and obviously it is, then the media and the rabbis are keeping me from salvation." Zev said to him, "My brother, only the Holy Spirit would reveal that to you. You're absolutely right."

Dr. Reagan: Zev uses this opportunity to take Jews right through Scriptures and through the prophecies in the Old Testament, which is so important as you pointed out, because the average Jew and rabbi do not know the Scriptures. They've spend their whole lives studying commentaries on the Scriptures.

Carl Gallups: That's right. They read the Zohar, the Kabbala, the Talmud and the Mishnah. They listen to their rabbi's interpretation of the Scriptures, but those interpretations are just snippets of Scripture.

Dr. Reagan: So, when Zev showed them scriptures like Isaiah 53, they probably didn't even know it existed.

Carl Gallups: Yes. They'd never heard scriptures such as Psalm 22, Isaiah 53, Zechariah 12, or Job 19. They didn't know any of the scriptures that speak of the Redeemer, the Messiah, about the piercing of His hands and feet, or Psalm 16 which talks of the rising after three days. If they'd know of these Scriptures, they had heard them with a rabbinical twist which changed the meaning away from the Messiah.

After the people had seen the note that this "Billy Graham of the Jews" had declared, and after Zev had shown them how it all fit together with the biblical scriptures about the Messiah, they were amazed.

The most visually astounding story Zev told me about was one that happened at the Wailing Wall.

Dr. Reagan: Oh, yes. I've seen this on video. It's just unbelievable!

Carl Gallups: Zev takes the book, along with an Old Testament and New Testament, to the Wailing Wall. Now, Zev is an Orthodox Jew, and most of the people there know that he's a believer in Jesus. And so, he goes to the Wailing Wall, though I don't know if what he did was illegal, but I imagine it was a couple hundred years ago. He probably would have been stoned back then. But anyways,Zev goes to the Wailing Wall with my book. All the Jews see it. They see Kaduri's picture on the front, so interested they crowd around him and ask, "What's this book?" Zev answers, "Let me show you what Kaduri said." They all listen and they're all like, "What? That can't be true because we would have heard about it." Then Zev tells them how the media and the rabbis had shut the story down. I'd imagine there were rabbis even listening to all of this at the Wailing Wall.

The last story Zev told me was about a man named Jonathan who was standing at the Wailing Wall and listening to all that Zev was telling the people. He walks up and says to Zev, "Tell me more about this." So, Zev takes him through the Old Testament, through passages like Psalm 22, Zechariah 12 and Isaiah 53. Then he gets into the New Testament and shows how Jesus fulfilled His promises and how all the New Testament documents are written by Jews. There's even a book called Hebrews written specifically for Jews to show them that Jesus is Messiah. The next thing Jonathan asks is, "How can I be saved? How can I know Jesus?" We have a picture of Jonathan with his arms up on the Wailing Wall giving his life to Jesus Christ.

So, you can see right there the impact Kaduri's note has made on the Jewish people. Sadly though, even with all these evidences of salvation, still we'll have detractors about the viability of Kaduri's note's impact.

Listen, my whole life is about advancing the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. This story needed to be told, and if people don't like it, that's because they don't get it. If people are going to make judgments on the story before they read my book, then shame on them.

The bottom line is — I'm not Kaduri's publicist nor his apologist. I'm not his spokesperson. There's a story that needed to be told, and I have told it. It has made its way into Israel and multitudes ofOrthodox Jews are being saved right now through Zev Porat's ministry and through my book and movie. I give God all the glory!

This is genuine, prophetic, end time stuff that is happening today. It could very well be that Jonathan is the first Jew in 2,000 years to have been saved at the Wailing Wall. I'm just thrilled to be a little part of this!
