2. Benjamin Fourie: Some Reflections About South Africa
Re: 2 Kings 6: The heavenly Army of Angels is revealed!


Concerning South Africa: "Siener" or "Seer" van Rensburg was a man who received frequent visions about 100 years ago. And what he saw did indeed happen, such as the demise of Jan Smuts, the second World War, Britain loosing her colonies, the handing over of the "white" government to a "black" one, AIDS, murdering of white farmers, Chernobyl and so on. He believed in divine revelation.

My father was legal advisor to the Natal Povincial administration in the 1960s and believes that his life has been guided by angelic visitations. He objected against the Group Areas Act and Law on Mixed Marriages then.

In South Africa one might find in one family people politically orientated from the far right to the far left, so, it would be a mistake to judge Afrikaners or whoever collectively. Personally I think that most people would naturally vote for those who protect their group rights, as this is how conformists behave. On the other hand the rights of minority groups in Africa has been a problem...

Nelson Mandela had a golden opportunity in 1994. But, he legalized abortion, abolished influx control at the borders, did away with the death penalty... So, now we have 300 000 Nigerians in the Johannesburg area (or so it is said), wanting to make money I suppose, a very high jobless rate there, problems with illegal drug dealers, who often cause children to disappear, many teenage moms, billions of rands being handed out by the state to support those, municipalities that don't function properly and so on. Perhaps he was just liberal and idealistic... but in cities the 15% tax payers support the rest, who seems to be multiplying at a pace...

On the positive side an event such as the Soccer World Cup has been showing that there are many things to feel joyous about.
But, Ghana has been the only team from Africa progressing to the second round.

Perhaps we need a world where borders are determined by the angels and not by rivers, mountains or whatever can be limited to something visible.

Best wishes

3. Question About Prophecy and the Transference of the Palestinians to Someplace in the West
Pastor James PS Templeton wrote:

Dear Yair, You wrote 'Dothan is to the north of Schechem (Nablus) near present-day city of Jenin at present illegally and immorally occupied by Arab squatters.
We hope this temporarily and that all the so called "Palestinian Arabs" are shortly transported to someplace like Brazil, as indicated in Prophecy.' I would appreciate it if you would give me the Scriptures which proclaim this. Yours Very Sincerely, James Templeton.

Brit-Am Reply:
The future expulsion of the Palestinian Arabs was predicted by Isaiah. Ephraim and Judah will conduct ba joint operation to fly the Arabs to someplace in the west. This is the only way the State of Israel can survive on a permanent basis.

The future co-operation of Ephraim and Judah in this matter was predicted by Isaiah.
[for more details on these matters see the Brit-Am Commentary to these verses of Isaiah:]
After this the combined forces of Judah and Ephraim shall fly the Palestinians (referred to in Scripture as "Philistines")
to the west while putting other heathen nations that oppose Israel in their place.
The KJ renders the first part of Isaiah 11:14 as:
in the Hebrew original this in fact reads:

There is a commandment and obligation upon the Children of Israel to expel all the heathen nations from the Land of Israel.

If the Israelites do not expel this Canaanite non-Israelite pagan Arab element their whole existence in the land is endangered.

[Numbers 33:55] But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall be that those whom you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land where you dwell.
[Numbers 33:56] Moreover it shall be that I will do to you as I thought to do to them.

Movement of Arab Populations (MAP)

We are against terror and unjustified discrimination.
There are many Arabs who may well be good and decent.
The Arabs should be transferred for their own good and for the good of everyone else.
They should be treated well and receive assistance in re-settling in Brazil or whatever other place they are sent to.
 The present situation is that the Arabs in Israel are suffering, sometimes because of their own contrary nature and perhaps also due to the objective situation.
They often attack Jews including women and children and are encouraged to do so by their leaders, their media, and their educational system.
They receive a certain degree of encouragement and backing in opposing the Jewish Existence from third world entities alongside European ones.

4. Jack Flaws is Unhappy with Brit-Am!
From: Jack Flaws
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1531


Your monumental disrespect is almost as big as your ego. 

Take me off this list.
Brit-Am Reply:
We may have spoken disrespectfully to Flaws but he asked for it and in effect had received ample warning previously that such was liable to be our reaction.
J. Flaws has a web-site which is anti-Jewish and says horrible false things about Jews and others.
His reaction however is typical of Conspiracy Freaks who slander others yet seem surprised when those being slandered disrespect them.
Flaws however is not your usual anti-Semitic Conspiracy Freak. He does spread British Israel information as well as claims that the Japanese are from the Lost Ten Tribes.
In the past Flaws also protested to the Brit-Am masterpiece:
" Baruk Obama: A Poem for Pesach "

He considered this disrespectful and registered his lack of amusement.

No. I absolutely do NOT like what I read.
Please remove me from all your lists except Brit-Am Now.
I don't need petty little, race oriented missives that can't even get right the spelling of the President's name.

If we were to start thinking along the lines adopted by Flaws we might be asking whether or not he received funding from Japanese and Arab interests.
He is also anti-Anglo as are many Conspiracy Freaks.
Baruk Obama: A Poem for Pesach

Baruk Obama
Is not from Alabama
He Followed after Bush
All the way from Cush
We could leave him alone
But he will not go home
He may be black
or half-white
But is in a fight
And now has the might
Though not the right
to give a whack
to the Holy Land Race
That sets the Pace
all over the earth
and the old Jew-boy
He treats like a toy
and denies
the Israelite berth
and all it is worth
of the USA
and Old Albion
that defies
the pagan way
and all it may say
and longs for Zion
We are coming along
It may not be long
Before "Barry boy"
As Obama was called
before he was made Lord
of all the earth
and betrayed Israel .
The fires of hell
may treat him well
On the sea surf
He is headed for dearth
And Israel will live
God bless the State of Israel
and the Israelite Peoples
May they realize who and what they are
and be true to it.
Pesach 5769

5. Hosea 8

 1 'Set the trumpet to your mouth!
      He shall come like an eagle against the house of the LORD,
      Because they have transgressed My covenant
      And rebelled against My law.

      2 Israel will cry to Me,
      ' My God, we know You!'

      3 Israel has rejected the good;
      The enemy will pursue him.

      4 ' They set up kings, but not by Me;
      They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them.
      From their silver and gold
      They made idols for themselves'
      That they might be cut off.

      5 Your calf is rejected, O Samaria!
      My anger is aroused against them'
      How long until they attain to innocence'

      6 For from Israel is even this:
      A workman made it, and it is not God;
      But the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces.

      7 ' They sow the wind,
      And reap the whirlwind.
      The stalk has no bud;
      It shall never produce meal.
      If it should produce,
      Aliens would swallow it up.

      8 Israel is swallowed up;
      Now they are among the Gentiles
      Like a vessel in which is no pleasure.

      9 For they have gone up to Assyria,
      Like a wild donkey alone by itself;
      Ephraim has hired lovers.

      10 Yes, though they have hired among the nations,
      Now I will gather them;
      And they shall sorrow a little,
      Because of the burden of the king of princes.

      11 ' Because Ephraim has made many altars for sin,
      They have become for him altars for sinning.

      12 I have written for him the great things of My law,
      But they were considered a strange thing.

      13 For the sacrifices of My offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it,
      But the LORD does not accept them.
      Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins.
      They shall return to Egypt.

      14 ' For Israel has forgotten his Maker,
      And has built temples;
      Judah also has multiplied fortified cities;
      But I will send fire upon his cities,
      And it shall devour his palaces.'

Summary of Hosea 8:
Anti-Jewish attacks by the Romans, Poles, and Germans are symbolized by the eagle. The chapter starts with Judah then turns to the Ten Tribes though at the second last verse it refers to Judah again and in the last verse to Israel and Judah together. The northern Israelites abandoned the God of Israel and set up their own religion and their own corrupt rulers. The calf of Samaria will be broken in pieces and disaster come upon them. They will be exiled by Assyria and assimilate amongst the Gentiles. Even the Gentiles will not want them and will cast them out. Despite the fact that they will be like Gentiles, God will have mercy on them, forgive them their sins and gather them together. They shall be given a "second" chance in their Place of Exile. They will be addicted to idolatry because they want permission to sin. This will be their undoing. They will have rejected the Bible and treated it as something written for foreigners and not for themselves. Judah will also have sinned and be punished.
