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 Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time.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.

The Christmas Eve Pogrom in Egypt

The Christmas Eve Pogrom in Egypt

On January 6 2010, seven Egyptian Coptic Christians were executed in cold blood, and fifteen more were wounded. Two of the wounded died from their grave injuries on the second day after the massacre. This crime took place when three Egyptian terrorists criminals opened fire towards the Coptic worshippers in southern Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi, as they came out of their Church after the celebration of the Coptic Christmas Eve midnight mass at 11.15 PM. According to several eyewitnesses, the intention of the perpetrators had originally been to assassinate Bishop Kirollos, but when the terrorists failed in their mission to hunt down the Bishop, they turned round and started shooting at the Christian congregation instead.

The Egyptian authorities promptly declared that they arrested the perpetrators of Nag Hammadi crime. They presented names and photos of three well known criminals, who had repeated security crimes at the police. Until here the news about the crime and the criminals was shown in the local and international media.

What the Egyptian authorities stated and did was not just and fair. It was not fair to the truth and to the families of the victims. The terrorist crime is far bigger than what newspapers wrote and what the public heard in the media. The crime is bigger than what the Egyptian authorities said in relation to the arrest of the three criminals. No Egyptian believes the statements of the government. The criminals who were caught by the authorities were known to the government, but these criminals had no own interest in the Coptic massacre, in murdering some young people. They had no interest in religion. All what they were interested in was drugs, eating and drinking, rather than going to the mosque or the church. These criminals were never seen praying anywhere. None of them had interest in religion or political affairs, and the Egyptian Copts are not so naïve to believe the statements of the authorities.“Click on the small pictures to make them bigger”.

In fact, the Egyptian security (secret police) threatened Coptic Bishop Kirollos to change his statements about the Nag Hammadi massacre. Coptic sources stated that Bishop Kirollos received threats against his people and his Church after he told the local media that he had called the police before celebrating Christmas Eve. He asked them to send him some plainclothes police officers in order to protect the celebration of the midnight Christmas mass, after he explained the necessity for the presence of civil police among the celebrators.

Bishop Kirollos stated that he had been told that he would receive a Christmas “present”. He understood this announcement of a “present” as an open threat against him and his community, and on that Christmas day, a car was seen following him, what caused him to call the police several times, but they sent nobody to attend the ceremony. Also, no government or local officials came to extend their Christmas greetings to the Bishop and his community, what was a tradition practiced in all previous years. The Bishop ended the Christmas ceremony earlier than usual this year, but the bullets turned the happiness of the Coptic congregation into bloody sorrow.

The talk within the Egyptian Coptic community is of a premeditated and organized crime. They suspect that the Egyptian authorities, the government, the security system, the Ministry of Justice and members of the national ruling party are behind this terrorist attack. The families of the Coptic victims all suspect that the governor of Nag Hammadi is involved in the crime, and they openly accuse him. The governor is a Christian, but he is an employee of the government, and he defends the absence of his security men at the Coptic Christmas celebration.

According to Copts, the governor said: “I am working on behalf of the Peoples Party and its parliament members, and I took my decisions on their behalf”.

Since the massacre of a Christian Priest together with his wife and daughter and another 13 others during the “Al-Zawye Al-Hammra’a” (english “Red Corner”) massacre back in 1981, 160 crime against Christians, among them assault, theft, setting fire to houses and shops, kidnapping and raping of Christian girls, have been recorded at the police and with the justice authorities, but in none of these cases the court has ruled against a single perpetrator. In Egypt the Coptic girls are kidnapped and declared their loyalty to Islam after marrying Muslims. The Christian are not allowed to build Churches. There is a clear incitement against Christians and their culture at the Islamic mosques.

I heard Copts talking during the TV program “Cairo Today”. The speakers were very angry: they all blamed the Egyptian authorities for the terrorist incident, and also for the deteriorated situation of the Christians in Egypt. They indicated that the responsibility for the Coptic massacre in Nag Hammadi lays squarely at the feet of the Government. The Coptic speakers also stated that the security man who was killed during the massacre had not been present in any official task, but rather that he had been spending the evening together with a friend in the area, and that he was present, and shot, by coincidence.

Engineer Michael Muneer, Chairman of the Security council of the “Yad be Yad” organization in Egypt (english “hand by hand”), said that while governor of Nag Hammadi declared in public that the security situation in the town was “quiet and stable”, actually Christian shops, houses, fields were burnt, and a woman, Alice Constantine, had died because of a violent confrontation in the town. He added that, while the number of dead Copts increased in Nag Hammadi, the houses and shops of Christians were burnt, the representative of the ruling National Democratic Party, Ibrahim Al-Ghol, stated that the massacre happened “as a natural reaction to the previous attacks on the honor of a Muslim girl”.

Mr. Muneer also stated that the security beat harshly 50 young Christians and arrested them. They were demonstrating in protest of the massacre. In contrast, the police did not arrest the people who burnt the houses, shops, motorcycles and other property of christians. He added “The people who were arrested are mercenaries. They do not have any capacity which shows that they were thinking and planning to commit such a crime. They have nothing to do with the revenge for the honor of a Muslim girl who was harassed some moths ago, as they do not reside in the city where that crime occurred. If they were actually interested in taking revenge, there was a great deal of revenge taken at the time of that problem, but they were not among the revengers”.

Mr. Muneer also stated that one of the criminals who were caught has a direct relation to a member of the People’s Council (Egyptian parliament), and that is also known to work for a well-known businessman. He wondered how such a person, who is registered as a dangerous criminal with the police could have a friendship with a member of the ruling party and work with important businessmen. Mr. Muneer concluded his speech demanding that the Attorney General must find out the true motives which led to the occurrence of the massacre, and who was responsible for instigating it.

Dr. Sharif Dos, one of the speakers for the Coptic community in the media, a Member of the Higher Committee for Al-Maadi churches in Cairo, stated that the Nag Hammadi massacre is one among a series of incidents of mass terror against Christians in Egypt.

There are 160 assaults against Christians, such like burning their houses, shops and fields, burning down or vandalizing of Churches after the Friday prayers. At Mosques, the religious preachers regularly incite Muslims against Christians. He added “The security of Christian venues is never taken seriously, for example, to prevent such crimes as the assaults after the Friday prayers.

He added that, after Nag Hammadi, they will not accept the civil reconciliation law (which makes use of intermediaries) as a solution for this crime. They want to know who the real criminals are, and they expect that the government fully implements the criminal laws.

During a Parliament session, MP Georgette Qlini, who had gone to Nag Hammadi to hear from the victims families, was seriously attacked by her colleagues at the Parliament. They interrupted her speech after they heard the first sentence, in which she exposed the lies of the governor of Nag Hammadi and the facts about the pogroms in the town of Bahjora after the crime, during which many shops and houses of Christians were burnt. Qlini described the horrific situation of the people living there.

She stated that the governor (who had been with the secret police before) said in his reply to her question about why the police had not protected the people after the first shot by the terrorists, taking in consideration that the church yard where the crime occurred is very small (about square 600 meters) and that there had been a big chance to catch the killer. The governor answered that “everyone was confused when they heard the shooting”. Qlini asked the governor, “have you ever been shocked and confused while you were in official tasks, in your previous work as a police officer?”

MP Georgette Qilini demanded the dismissal of the Governor of Qena. MP Ali Atwa, one of the members of the ruling National Democratic Party. He responded by saying “Your talk makes incites trouble, but we are here for Egypt”

MP Georgette Qlini who demanded the dismissal of the Governor of Qena.

MP Qilini answered: What did you say? Do you come here to support the governor, as you were his former colleague in the security? Meaning that the speaker is a former police officer, just like the governor. She added ”I wish that you would support your colleagues in the Parliament in the same way like you support your former colleagues from the police”.

I see this terrorist attack against Copts during the Christmas, and all the attacks before, as shame in the face of President Husni Mubark and his security system, who are not willing or not able to protect their own citizens from terrorism. I conclude my report with my questions below. If you have answers for any of my questions, please be aware to keep silence, otherwise your name will be in the black list of the Egyptian secret police.

  • Who is the head of the sedition and terrorism in Egypt? Is it the Egyptian government and its racist regime, which sheds Egyptian blood, or perhaps the mercenary criminals who were arrested in the wake of the Coptic massacre in Nag Hammadi on January 6, 2010?
  • Who are the real terrorist and criminals? Is it Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his ruling party, or the criminal bullies who were paid by people belonging to the Egyptian ruling party, or is it the Egyptian secret police, who threatened Bishop Kirollos and demanded that he change his testimonies about the horrific crime against his own people, or is it the governor of Nag Hammadi?
  • Where were the Egyptian security men, who were seen heavily armed when protecting the Israeli Jews during their stays and mass prayers in Egypt last month? Were they at the Rafah border together with the CIA experts, building and protecting the genocide wall in order to protect the income and power of Mubarak in Egypt? Is the security of Israelis more important than the security of the Egyptian people?
  • What is the difference between the followers of the American Zionist terrorist Baruch Goldstein, who murdered 29 Palestinian worshippers inside the Ibrahimi Mosque on February 25, 1994, and the corrupt Egyptian ruling party, who hires criminal thugs to assassinate the innocent Christians worshipping God at Christmas Eve mass in Nag Hammadi on January 6, 2010?
  • Where were the Egyptian intelligence officers who could have hindered the Nag Hammadi massacre, why were they unable to detail enough personnel to protect the Copts, when Egypt is known as a police state ruled by the secret service, where there are police at every street corner? Were they all busy spying on the opponents of the succession to his father of Mr. Jamal Mubarak, or were they busy providing security for Shlomo, Ehud, Itzik …?
  • Did the Egyptian security establishment, the military, police, and intelligence organizations, all fail to protect the Copts of Egypt, or is the blood of Egyptians cheap for all criminals and the terrorists when they support of the Mubarak regime?
  • Does the Egyptian ruling party bully its weak citizens? Why has Egypt become giant the scene of crime, poverty, illiteracy, extremism and racism under the ruling regime, after it was a state of science, civilization and culture where the problems between different groups and minorities were few and far in between?
  • Were the security people of Hosni Mubarak all busy with the shooting of Ahmad Shaba’an by friendly fire of his Egyptian friends at the border of Genocide at the entrance of Gaza?
  • Did the Egyptian government ask that Israel hand them over the terrorists who murdered in cold blood 16 Egyptian soldiers and wounded ten others in the past five years, while they were protecting the security of the Israeli border ?
  • Why did Hosni Mubarak not say a word when the soldiers Subhi al-Najjar, age 21, Mohamed Abdel Fattah, aged 22, and Amer Abu Bakr Amer, aged 22, all three belonging to his Central Security, were murdered by Israeli tank fire on the morning of Thursday, September 18 2004?
  • Why did the Mubarak regime not say one word when Ahmed Issa was shot near the border in Sinai, or when the soldier Milad Ahmed Hamida was shot, or when the policeman Gharib Mohamed Ahmed was shot in the heart, or when the Egyptian citizen Ayed Suleiman Musa, age 32, was shot near the Kfar Salem crossing on May 21 2008?
