  • Some thoughts on why Handel's Messiah at Christmas is so compelling

    American Thinker ^ | 12/25/2022 | Monica Showalter
    At Christmas, instead of a lot of pop Christmas songs, I have been listening to passages from Handel's Messiah" oratorio, including the powerfully beautiful Christmas-oriented "For unto us a child is born" based on the writings of the Prophet Isaiah, and the soaringly magnificent Hallelujah Chorus. To hear these, compared to everything else makes me ask if this was the pinnacle of human musical achievement? Will there ever be anything greater? An argument can be made for it at least this far. This oratorio, after all, is touched by eternity. We listen to this joyful piece today, nearly 300 years...
  • Christmas Conundrum

    12/10/2022 6:22:32 AM PST · by Roman_War_Criminal · 1 replies ^ | 12/9/22 | Todd Hampson
    Isaiah 9:6 is quoted frequently at Christmastime. You may have seen the passage on Christmas cards, oftentimes along with a manger scene. The well-known (but usually not fully understood) verse reads, “To us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Notice that the first three phrases correlate to three distinct events in the ministry of Jesus, each separated by time. First, he was born. Then 33 years later, the Son of God was given as...

    Now The End Begins ^ | 10/28/22 | Geoffrey Grider
    Decades ago, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri as well as the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, both predicted that Benjamin Netanyahu would be the State of Israel’s last prime minister prior to the Messianic Age. Back in the closing decades of the twentieth century, there was a Lubavitcher Rebbe, or ‘rabbi’, named Menachem Schneerson who had a very large and enthusiastic following who believed that he was, in fact, the promised biblical Messiah. Only problem was, it was not based not so much on the prophets in the Bible, but more on Jewish mysticism. In the 1990’s, posters proclaiming ‘Messiah Is Here’...

    Israel Today ^ | 9/29/22 | Ryan Jones
    A recent interview on Israeli radio featured prominent rabbis explaining that the Messiah is just about to reveal himself. Rabbi Yaakov Zisholtz told religious broadcaster Radio 2000 that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky (who passed away earlier this year) had told him that he (Kanievsky) was already in direct contact with the Messiah. To understand why religious Jews are taking this seriously, it’s important to know that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky was considered one of the two or three top rabbis of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Israel. And Rabbi Zisholtz says that Kanievsky and others of the mystical “concealed” rabbis had tasked...

    What does the Russian invasion of Ukraine have to do with the Messiah? Everything, according to one rabbi who studied the Talmud’s prophecy. Rabbi Yehuda Richter of Kfar Tappuach revealed in a recent lecture entitled ‘Emergency Broadcast: Russia, Ukraine, Armageddon, Bringing the Redemption’ that in the Talmud, a little-known prophesy touches on how wars in “the seventh year” are a sign of the End-of-days and a harbinger of the Messiah’s arrival. THE NUMBER SEVEN In the presentation, the rabbi cites his sources in the Talmud, saying: “Talmud tractate of megillah page 17, side B also you could refer to Sanhedrin...

    Two earthquakes shook northern Israel within a few hours, bringing the total of earthquakes in Israel this month up to four. Scientists are issuing dire warnings of imminent doom, but rabbis point to the prophecies as proof that people who have faith, have nothing to fear and even that the Messiah’s arrival is “speeding up.” The first earthquake hit at around 9:00 PM on Tuesday night and measured 3.5 on the Richter scale. ts epicenter was located in Jordan, 9 miles northeast of Beit Shean. On Wednesday morning, about ten hours later, a 3.1 earthquake shook the same area. Teruah...

    Rabbi Yekutiel Fish, a prominent mystic from Jerusalem, gave a lesson last week in which he proved through a precise mathematical equation that next year will be the final Jubilee before the arrival of the Messiah. “We are now in the month of Shevat on the eve of the Messiah,” Rabbi Fish said at the beginning of his lesson. “If you happen to hear a shofar, don’t be alarmed or confused,” the rabbi joked. “It is only the arrival of the Messiah.” Rabbi Fish attributed the teaching to Rabbi Oren Evron, a prominent mystic-numerologist. “Rabbi Evron told me the following...

    Handel’s Messiah, now as much a part of Christmas and Easter as mince pies and mistletoe, is one of the world’s greatest expressions of the Christian faith in music. Its composer, George Frideric Handel, was born in what is now Germany in 1685. Although his family discouraged him from a musical career, his astonishing natural talent proved unstoppable. Acquiring a wide range of skills, the young Handel found himself in Italy, where he began writing operas. In 1712 Handel moved to London where many were fond of Italian opera and Handel could find a market for his talent. For nearly...

    As the sabbatical year approaches, many experts warn that the earth’s bounty will not suffice to feed the world. But prophetic messages and rabbinic wisdom putting the looming crisis in a redemptive framework paint a different picture. EXPERTS: GLOBAL FAMINE IS IMMINENT Last year, many experts were predicting severe global food shortages. In November 2020, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) reported that 690 million people were undernourished and 130 million additional people risked being pushed to the brink of starvation by the end of the year. But these dire predictions were exacerbated even further by the pandemic. “Ironically,...
