Palestine Cry

The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: The Catholic Creed: The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.


For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

Why did Israel Steal Marys Gate Before Christmas?

Why did Israel Steal Marys Gate Before Christmas?

The so-called “Israel Antiquities Authority” (IAA) stole one of the Christian holy gates (Mary’s Gate) from the Church of the Sepulchre in Jerusalem, which is the most sacred Christian place in the world. The Holy Church of the Sepulchre which was looted by the “IAA” is administrated by all Christian communities in Palestine together: the Catholic, Orthodox, Armenian, Coptic, Syrian Orthodox, and Ethiopian churches. (Click on pictures to see them bigger).

The church is registered under the Ministry of Awqaf, of Islamic and Christians Affairs in Jordan, which officially is the only authority responsible for taking care for all Christian and Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem since 1952 and until now.

he Israeli robbery and desecration of the Sepulchre Church was carried out on December 4 2009, before the preparations for the Christmas festivities of this year. The IAA opened the Gate of Mary and removed archaeological holy stones and iron bars around the gate in the walls, which had been sealed since the time of the British mandate of Palestine, before 1948. The IAA claimed that they were cleaning the place and doing renovations.

Neither the Christian communities or the Jordanian Ministry of Holy sites in Jerusalem asked the “IAA” to do anything in the Holy Sepulchre Church, and what the Israel Antiquities Authority did in the place was a deliberate attack and the desecration of the sanctity of the holy place. The “IAA” was not cleaning or renewing the Christian holy place, as it is not their responsibility to do that. The IAA stole the holy gate and removed holy stones, and then sealed the place after the theft, in order to hide the crime.

“Israel’s measures are illegal and violate international laws, because Israel is the occupying force in the West Bank and East Jerusalem”, the official said.

Mr. Craig Dunning, a foreign researcher interested archaeology, photographed the IAA theft while they were transferring the big stones into a car. The IAA claimed that they were “cleaning Mary’s Gate” and “strengthening the ground” which was supposedly “doomed to fall”. They made some changes to a gate and removed the antique stones, transferring them together with other objects to an unknown location.

According to Osama Al-Ayasa, a Palestinian journalist who reported in Arabic about the IAA robbery, the reactions to what happened in this holy place came very late, most notable being the position of the Jordanian government, which called the Israeli ambassador in Amman, Yaakov Rosen, and handed him a formal protest note on what they described the robbery as “unilateral actions” in the Church of the Holy Resurrection (Sepulchre). The Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh presented the Israeli ambassador to Amman Yaakov Rosen with a protest letter against the construction work being done on one wall of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City.

“Israel’s measures are illegal and violate international laws, because Israel is the occupying force in the West Bank and East Jerusalem”, the official said.

According to AFP, the Jordanian government demanded that Israel halt immediately their “unilateral work”, carried out by the IAA on the outer walls of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, and that they restore the situation as it was in that holy place.

Another Jordanian official said that the Israeli authorities “have removed iron bars around a gate in the walls which had been sealed since the time of the British mandate of Palestine, which ended in 1948, and opened the gate. The official, who declined to be named, said that the Israelis “claimed that they were doing renovations but nobody asked them to do anything”. “This is unprecedented and dangerous”, the official said, noting that anything to do with the Holy Sepulchre is “very sensitive.”

Osama Al-Ayasa wrote that, The Christian communities, which are supposedly involved in the management of the church, did not declare a clear position towards the crime of the IAA in the holy place. These groups always fight among each others, although normally any problem, including even formalities, give rise to disputes which usually ended in clashes with fists and sticks, and where people are wounded, like what happened on Nov. 10 2008, during a procession. (See Video)

The Catholic delegation guarding the Holy Land, under whose power the Gate of Mary is located, sent a protest to the Israeli Antiquities Authority. But the protest was shy, weak and was not announced in the media. The Roman Orthodox Patriarchate also protested because what happened was carried out without consulting them, and because of the sensitivity of the location and the seriousness of changing the status quo. The protest of the Roman Orthodox was also shy and away from the media.

No word in condemnation of the desecration of this most holy place by Israel was found anywhere in the international media, neither from the Catholic churches in Europe and everywhere else, or any other Christian congregation. One must wonder about the continuing accusations of discrimination of Christians in Muslim lands, while these people would probably not dare to say a word even if the Israel Antiquities Authority destroyed the Church itself. We must suppose that the Pope would in such a case try to appease the Jews, probably even grovelling and kissing their hands in public. In any case it is clear that no politician will say one word against the criminality of Israel, even if it is against their own supposed interests.

The most painful spectacle was what Pope Benedict XVI spoke last Monday, Dec. 21 2009, after the theft of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and three days before the celebration of Christmas, in which the Pope declare his blessing for Israel, rather than to declare allegiance to God and to condemn of the desecration of this Christian Church. Just as if the hypocrisy of Israel and his loyalty to these criminals was more important than loyalty to God, or as if the hypocrisy of Israel was part of the Christian religion, which had already gone beyond this obscurantism long time ago.

The biggest crime in this episode was the shameful position of the Palestinian National Authority, which did not show any reaction to the theft and desecration of the Church of the Resurrection, this “government”, which has failed its people with its insistence in staying in illusory power and government, all the while licking the crumbs from under the table of the jews, the financial aid from the US and the European Union. With their acceptance of this aid, we, all the Palestinians, have lost our dignity and national rights.

In the same way, the Patriarch Mar Ignatius Joseph III, the Greek Patriarch of Antioch of the Syrian Catholic community, who is visiting Palestine, tried to reduce the issue of the robbery by the Israel Antiquities Authority in his answer to a question posed by Osama Al-Ayasa about the position of the Vatican on this issue. The Patriarch essentially said that the issue is “a minor one” and that the Israel Antiquities Authority was given permission to make the repairs by a Catholic official. This official believed that since the iron gate was under the authority of the British Mandate before, it now falls under the authority of the current government, Israel.
