Hello, John and Doves,There is a much misunderstood scripture, for it contains a double open-coded Jewish idiom referring to the Messiah."Neither shall he regard 995 the God 430 of his fathers 1, nor the desire 2532 of women 802, nor regard 995 any god 433: for he shall magnify 1431 himself above all." Daniel 11:37The phrase, "the desire of women," has its primary intended meaning as actually the third layer of meaning of that phrase. The first layer only identifies the AC as a man, which we already know. That is to say, the AC has masculine desires, not feminine desires. Ergo, the AC is male.The second layer of meaning is grounded in words Isaiah spoke to King Ahaz:"'Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.'" Isaiah 7:14It was the desire of the young virgins of Israel, that they should be the one to bring forth the Messiah.The meaning of the third layer is to be found in the same book of Isaiah:"For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."Of the increase of [His] government and peace [There will be] no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice >From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." Isaiah 9:6-7What Jewish woman would not desire to be the wife of the Messiah, her kinsman-redeemer?Re-read the books of Ruth and the Song of Songs.As such, we can confidently conclude that not to regard "the desire of women" is exactly equivalent to disregarding Yeshua HaMashiach himself.Can anything be plainer, in view of Dave Molina's post below?In HaShem,Mike C._________________________________________________________________________________

"Obama skips statement on Easter; has commemorated all Muslim holidays..."
Nice, once again, the evil residing in the White House shows his hatred for Christians. Not by what he says, but by what he does not say. Maybe that is why this occurred on Easter
Lightning striking at White House on Easter night...
Obama skips statement on Easter; has commemorated all Muslim holidays...
What? No Easter Greeting?
Just when I thought the current team running the White House might have used up all its allotted mistakes comes word that President Obama failed to issue either either an Easter or a Good Friday greeting to the nation.
Now, let’s forget for a moment that these greetings, which presidents issue on many holidays and commemorations of events, are largely perfunctory and symbolic gestures that nobody cares about.
Until there’s a problem with them.
Fox News first caught the blunder and put it into context that makes the omission insulting to Christians. The mistake is odd enough to call into question just what Obama’s priorities are.
By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.
The White House . . . did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.
Obama, Fox notes, did head out to church yesterday and held an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House last week.
Obama is on a roll for religious holiday greeting screw ups. Fox News writes:
In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.
And as I noted last week, the president released a Passover greeting this month that compared the ancient Jewish exodus from Egypt to the Arab political awakening this year, which would be a beautiful thing if most Arabs didn’t seek Israel’s destruction.
The president is, of course, hosting the Easter Egg Roll at the White House today. But Easter isn’t really about rolling eggs on a manicured lawn, now is it?
